I’m heading from Ireland to Australia by land (almost!)...ridiculously inspired by one book! and so ill be heading from India to Nepal to Tibet and on to Laos. I feel that Tibet will be quite a challenge and by the time I get there I will be quite worn out! So would be great to have a travel buddy. Ill be there around April 2009...so excited!!if you fancy joining me or any advice that would be great!

Hey Emma,

I would join you if i could! :) I'd love to do that trip.

Have you fully checked out crossing from Nepal into Tibet on your own. When i was researching this trip for myself a couple of years ago, it wasn't possible to cross into Tibet via India and Nepal, but that might have changed.

I think there is a possibility of doing it as part of a tour group, but you would be returned back to Nepal at the end of the trip, thus preventing you from travelling on solo into Tibet.

Have a great trip - it sounds amazing! What was the book by the way?

The book is 'The wrong way home' by peter moore he also has a website you can check it out on...he did it in the 90's went to afghanastan during wartime!!...thank god i was not so inspired about that bit!what a cool journey though!

Im quite confused alright about the Tibet visa its one thing i havent sorted out yet at all as far as i know i have to join a group tour in nepal and i can (try) and head off do my own thing in Tibet in the unrestricted areas but im really not sure, i'll get down to it more when i leave my job but for now relying on internet for advice!
