Travel Forums Asia Where to start? Dehli/ Nepal/ Lhasa

Im planning a year trip through Asia, and Im not sure where the is the best place to start.
The plan is to travel east across china, and then through se asia.

I thought a good place to start would be Tibet (Lhasa)

However, I have been told that Tibet isnt easy or cheap to travel into and an alternative would be to start in Dehli and travel through Nepal to China,

Probelm is, I dont want to add too much on to our trip, as we are already covering quite a lot of places.

I would like to possibly see Nepal, so this might also be a good place to start?

Can anyone recommend the best/ cheapest place to start the trip?
anyone who has travelled this direction have any advice on where they started?

Well I would say to start in Nepal. From here you can travel down to India and off to Tibet. Depending on where in China it may be a bit far. Nepal is an incredible country and should not be overlooked. If you would like more info on Nepal please let me know, I spent 2 months there. Brent

Thanks Brent,

Could you tell me where the easiest and cheapest place to fly in to Nepal?
Im assuming Kathmandu?
How easy is it to travel from kathamandu across to Lhasa, Tibet? Are there any train routes?

Thanks for you help.

from where you want to fly kathmandu

There is no railway line between nepal and tibet
In asia no 2 countries are connected through rail This happens in Europe only

Yes the easiest way is to fly into Kathmandu. Then you need to join a tour to go into Tibet which usually results in flying to Lhasa.
