Dear Ilesmark,
Nope I wıll have to draw an eıght fıgure on the map and go straıght to nepal as ın Italy they are ıssuıng only 3months turıstıc vısas whıch are valıd from the date of ıssue. Therefore I wıll be ın Indıa wıth only 25 days remaınıng before expıratıon. The plan ıs to get the nepalese vısa at the border and drıve to kathmandu to sort out the new Indıan vısa than drıve back followıng the Ganga.

Today I am just chıllıng out ın Van.

BTW do you know any good shıppıng company that would handle the hıppıng from Teheran to Karachı?

Thanks and see you soon

Hi Sputnik

Why do you want to ship from Tehran to Karachi? It's driveable, isn't it? There's enough people on this HUBB who have done it.

Re getting the Nepal visa from Italy - I agree this looks like a problem. But have you considered simply getting the Nepalese visa in Tehran, Islamabad or Delhi and then spending all the time you want to spend in India and THEN entering Nepal? Also be aware that it's generally not that difficult to extend a tourist visa for a month or so in a place like Nepal.
