troubles in nepal
i had some serious trouble in nepal's western treai, coming in from india on my AT. between mahendranagar and buthwal there was a maoist-roadblock, total standstill for 4 days, at night the maoists attacked the nearby army-camp and killed several soldiers...all only 100 meters away from the hotel i was forced to stay in.
the roadblock was made of chopped-down trees, if you see some DON'T try to remove them or drive past, there are mines inside, seen some people been killed by that. after buthwal up to pokhara the road is clear, but be careful in the western terai, better wait if they tell you to, there is so much more to see...
bon voyage, jan
