The route

The map – not 100% accurate due to limitations of Google maps so for illustrative purposes only 😉

SE Asia: I have started in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, next I cycled across Cambodia (Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Battambang), Thailand (Bangkok, Mae Sot) and Myanmar (Myawaddy, Kawkareik, Naypidaw, Bagan, Mandalay).

South Asia: After taking the flight from Mandalay in Birma to Guwahati in India (the land border crossing is closed), I cycle across Assam and West Bengal to Siliguri/Panitanki border crossing with Nepal. From there, I moved to Chitwan National Park, Pokhara, Lumbini and finally to the west to Bombassa where I crossed to India. Then, I cycled to New Delhi and via Hariana and Punjab to Wagha border crossing with Pakistan.

Central Asia: After entering Pakistan, I got to Lahore, Islamabad and on Karakoram Highway which took me to the border crossing with China on Khunjerab Pass (4715masl). I continued cycling KKH to Kashgar and from there I got to Kirgistan and on Pamir Highway. I cycled the whole highway taking a detour to Wakhan Valley and arrived to Dushanbe. From there, I moved across Uzbek dessert to Kazachstan in the north and next to Aktau at Kaspian Sea. From Aktau I took a boat to Baku (Alat).

Western Asia: From Baku I cycled to Szeki and next via Lagodekhi to Tbilisi. From there, I followed a highway to Gori (Stalin birthplace), and 80km more where I turned to road in the south across mountains. Finally I reached Batumi where I took a ferry to Burgas.

Europe: Chill-out time. I had plenty of time to rest so I followed Bulgarian coast pitching tent on wild beaches. I continued in Romania to Corbu beach and finally to Danube delta where I stayed for few days. After that I cycled to Bukuresti, next Transfogarasian pass and across Transylvania to Karpathian mountains in Ukraine. From there, I went to Kamieniec Podolski and to Vinnitsa. I still had one week too much time so decided to take a bus to Odessa (I did not want to cycle in opposite direction than Vietnam-Poland). From Odessa I followed highways to Kiev-Lviv and finally Poland 😉
