Varanassi to Nepal
I'm currently in Varanassi on a 500cc Bullet and I'm thinking of heading up to Nepal in the next three or four days. Anyone travelling in this area want to come along for the ride or meet up?
am currently in Kathmandu and will be at least until the 17th and intend to head west.
You'll be waiting longer than that. Your bloody bike hasn't arrived yet Lars!
I'm in KTM and plan to head west to Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh in the next few days if it's any help.
My bike is actually HERE too.
See you in Khatmandu
Lars / NamasteBuzz,
I'll be leaving Varanassi on 14th and I think it'll take about 3 days to get to Khatmandu. I'll post my Indian mobile number tomorrow (haven't got phone with me now) and we'll see if we can meet up. I've no problem heading west as I intend to be in or around Leh / Ladakh etc in June.
Info to Namaste Buzz>>
Namaste Buzz, if you are riding down to Ladakh ,
Please note below the schedule / table of the Himalayan Odyssey >> the trip organized by royal Enfield.
At least the distances and altitudes might help. The road opens up in June and I am planning to ride there in June mid (got leaves from June 19 till July 7th)
SO I’ll be there around this time!
Lets see if we can meet up!
and My Indian Mobile No is 9881498694
