After Eid al-Fitr, a private bus company in Pakistan has chosen to run buses between Islamabad and the Chinese city of Tashkurgan. According to a business spokesman, the service from Islamabad to Tashkurgan would begin on May 13, 2023.
In the first phase, a mini-Utong bus with 28 seats will be introduced. The journey, including the immigration process, will take around 38 hours. Travelers will also spend one night at the Sost border crossing.
The fare is expected to be Rs. 60,000. According to the representative, the essential travel documents include an original passport and a copy of it, a valid original visa and a copy of it, and an invitation to China (visa category).
The service is available to everyone who wants to visit China for business or pleasure. Given the service’s importance and popularity among the people of both countries, the corporation is looking to grow it.
