May 2020 I started my dream tour from Mainz, Germany to my home town Nankana Sahib, Pakistan. I always had a dream to travel on Pamir highway so I planned in such a way that I can visit all the places that I had ever thought of visiting along with some of the most interesting spots along the way. As per my initial calculations, it was gonna take approx. 10 months; the first 6 months to reach Pakistan, spending the next couple of months exploring Pakistani landscape and then going to India for the remaining days.
I was ready to leave in the last week of March and then came Covid. Since all the borders were closed, I waited patiently until the situation improves. Eventually, I crossed my first border in the first week of June on the very same day as Austria decided to open the borders with Germany. The Google map below will show you my approx. travel route and the places I visited along the way.
How to Use This Map: Click the Tab on the Upper left corner of the map to view all places of interest marked in the map. You can show or hide the places by check/uncheck marks. By clicking on the Star in the upper corner next to the name of the map, you can add this map into your Google maps to view it on mobile or computer. It will be saved under "Your Places" under the Menu.
The driving map is calculated approximately as I wasn't able to enter more than 10 stops but the map does show almost all the places. After entering Pakistan from Taftan border, you must plan at least 3 days to reach Islamabad/Lahore/Karachi.
There are few things that you should consider before embarking on such a tour.

Finally, an easy to understand and comprehensive guide to follow or plan a trip by road for bikers and others.
So much false and misleading information out on the web. Abrar has done an honest, humble and amazing vlog and web postings, all at his own expense.
I can only dream of embarking on same trip, but if God willing the times comes, then I have a good reference from Abrar`s hard work.
May almighty give you good health and safety wherever you travel.
