Breaking out of NZ

Nepal then onto India

NEPAL | Saturday, 15 December 2007 | Views [575] | Comments [2]

After arriving back from the Everest Base camp trek i spent a week in Kathmandu sorting out my indian Visa, once this was granted I travelled to Pohkara the base town for Annapurna treks at the base of the annapurna range then with the aid of a 4 hour taxi ride ($50 USD split 4 ways), a few local buses (interesting but uncomfortable), a night in Butwal (not a tourist town)and a 7km rickshaw ride we got to Chitwan where I took a Elephant safari and saw half a dozen Rhiinos and corcs.

Tomorrows its back to dirty old kathmandu before a fly out to Delhi for 2 nights to meet up with a trekking partner from everst then on to Srinagar (Kashmir-India) and onto Gulmarg (bout 50km away) to do some himalayan skiing (check www.skihimalaya.com) on the 20th. which Im excited about

Unfortunatley photos are painfully slow to load so these migh have to wait to Im back in Thailand or Canada
