Travel Forums Asia India to Thailand?

I was wondering if anyone could help. I was planning to travel from London to Sydney overland via the Middle East. The problem is that once I get to India, I can't continue through Burma because they don't allow overland travel into thier country. I can't go north into China because there are some mountains known as the Himalays which I hear are pretty unpassable lol. So is there any boats or ferries that run from India, Bangladesh or even Sri Lanka to Thailand? Or is there just any other way to do it overland?

Any help would be appreciated

Depending on the time of year, the Himalayas can be quite passable. You just go from India through Nepal, into Tibet, and dwown through China and South East Asia. As long as it's not winter its quite easy and is well troden.

Cheers for that Degolasse. Everyone told me that part was just not do-able but there you go, I'll have to look into some details.

Cheers
