Bangalore to Paris Jan-Jul 2024

This is my first bicycle Olympics trip that will take me from Bangalore, India to Paris, France via one of the following starting routes (in decreasing order of preference):

  1. Pakistan & Afghanistan

  2. Nepal, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan & Turkmenistan

  3. Fly to Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan 

 

Common route after one of the above: Iran, Turkey, Greece, Italy, and Switzerland. Routes 1 and 2 above are completely overland, whereas route 3 will require me to fly from India to Uzbekistan.

 

I plan to leave Bangalore, India in early January 2024 and reach Paris by mid-July 2024.

I am reaching out to travel agents and government agencies in India, Pakistan, and China to get visa and travel restrictions information to be able to make a decision on which starting route to take after leaving India.

 

If you or someone you know can help with arranging required approvals for the travel, I would love to talk to you. You can reach me on shashidhar.gurumurthy@gmail.com and +91-98456-55100. Thanks.
