Question: I really want to travel overland to India from the UK but I am really worried about crossing from Iran into Pakistan - and getting through Pakistan to get to India.
Answer: Mirjaveh is a locality in eastern Iran on the border with Pakistan. It is the main road crossing point between Iran and Pakistan. The Pakistani border post is at Taftan. Mirjaveh is also the point where the railway line from Pakistan crosses the border on the way from Quetta to Zahedan. The border immigration opens in the Pakistan side around 9am. There is a gate only on the Iranian side. As soon as intering Pakistan a police escorts you to Quetta.
