All About Nepal
Me and James are halfway through our trip from London to Australia, and currently relaxing in Dubai.
Our next bit is Nepal and India, landing in Nepal in about 3 weeks, so we hope we can gather some information from other HU travellers.
Firstly, i read very briefly somewhere that bikes over 650cc weren't allowed in Nepal, but haven't seen that elsewhere, so can anyone refute that? We have a carnet that doesn't exclude Nepal. (we're on a ktm 990).
Does anyone have any suggestions for roads to ride? We've heard that nepal has some of the best motorbike roads in the world, but will we encounter many problems for the fact that it's Oct/Nov (besides the cold)? Does anyone have any recommendations for websites/sources to check conditions of the roads (landslides etc)?
Regarding the land borders to India, are they open all year round or are they likely to close due to snow?
And lastly (probably not last, but the last I can think of at this stage), does anyone have any recommendations for freight/cargo companies to fly our bike from Dubai to Nepal?
We're really looking forward to this next bit of our journey, and even if we can't enjoy the roads in Nepal, we're still going to enjoy kathmandu, pokhara and the trekking!
Looking forward to any replies
Cat and James
