Alternative Routes from Nepal/India to UK avoiding Pakistan & Iran
I'm after a bit of advice on routes from either India or Nepal back to the UK. I'm going to be leaving Australia at the end of this year and head back to the UK via Malaysia, Thailand etc, then fly the bike to Bangladesh. The plan at this stage is to go from Bangladesh through N.E. India to Nepal, then down into India and through Pakistan, Iran etc.
Obviously, will be playing it by ear, but am starting to get a little concerned that things could go downhill in either Pakistan or Iran before I get there - probably May next year. So, thought it would be worthwhile to get an idea of some other options for getting to the UK, just in case.
I'm not too keen on going through Pakistan, China & the Stans for a number of reasons, but thought there could be some other options? Perhaps ride down to the South of India and stick the bike on a boat over to somewhere in Africa/Middle East?
Anyone found any alternative routes back to the UK?
My ideal would be to stick to the original plan, but want to consider the options and then decide at the time depending on whats going on there.
