Himalayas II: Riding In Nepal


Recommended Posts

Kathmandu, Nepal

Kathmandu is amazing, a city of narrow alleys and overhanging electric lines, it seems the city is bursting to expand. We managed to rent a Pulsar, not too fast, not too slow, pretty damn fuel efficient though, and waited for bated breath for Nepal.

The main lifeblood, it links Kathmandu and Pohkara. A pretty easy road, we spent a night in the mountain village of Bandipur, before makinig it to Pohkara on the following day.

So named after Siddharta Gautama (better known as Buddha) who was born (at the end of the road at Lumbini) and lived hereabouts, it joins India in the south and goes up north to Pohkara. The scenery is dramatic as the road winds its way through mountains and cliffs. We had a detour in Tansen and managed a walk in the woods.

Pretty straightforward, the long road is straight and in good repair. We spent 2 nights in Sauraha, at the fringes of the Royal Chitwan National Park.

The Tribhuvan winds its serpentine way for 120km from Hetauda to Naubise where it joins the Prithvi Highway.

It is an amazing road that meanders along rice fields and wheat fields, through gorges and along precipitous mountains.

The road is one-laned, narrow and broken in many places, and a lot of the surface is rippled and bumpy. The going was slow, but the scenery was breathtaking.

Nice! Thanks for the great travel idea. Is it cheap to get to Nepal from Singapore?

 

It depends - Silkair usually has promos - but its usually for 2 to go.
