India - Imphal / Tamu / Moreh

Hi all,

I crossed the border from Myanmar to India at Tamu / Moreh.
NOTE: I CROSSED WALKING. So no bike involved...

First I got an Indian visa at the embassy in Yangon (67 dollars / 5 working days) and bought a permit at MTT (N 16°46.411' E 096°09.638') . 100 dollars, 10 days, delivery via email so no need to wait in Yangon.

The crossing itself was easy as can be, some waiting, some stamps and BAM! You're in India!

After Moreh there is a highway to Imphal but also a beautiful road through the mountains. I can't read the data from my gps now (no pc) so I can't give you guys the track but a rough guidelines is this.
You follow to main road to Imphal and after the one major military checkpoint - with a lot of little sheds for 'men' and 'woman checking' and one 'Vip toilet' - you get a dirt road on your right hand. It comes back to the tarmac about 20k before Imphal.


Now the news I really wanted to post!

In Imphal is a really nice guy who gets sponsored by the government I think. It's a place to sleep and eat for free! I stayed 4 nights and all meals were free. Also, no other things like praying or such. Just sleeping and eating.

Also, around the corner (sort off.. few minutes) is the local Royal Enfield club with around 200 members. I went and had a chat and rode a few bikes. So if you get to India and need a place to sleep or some help with your bike, go here! They were really helpful and also gave me a free meal

Also, he can arrange permits for leaving India into Myanmar. And give other interesting papers for bikers like a fake local license... (I didn't tell you this...)

Name: UFO (Universal Friendship Organisation)

GPS location:
N 24°48.535'
E 093°53.200'

Enjoy!!

Fortune and Glory, kid. Fortune and Glory.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
