my name's Noran. I'm planning to travel overland from Calcutta (India) - Kathmandu (Nepal) - Vang Vieng (Laos).
Me and my travelmate, we are two girls, have figured out about the route from Calcutta to Kathmandu, well, sort of. We see some threads here about that, we've took some note. We'll try some suggestions.
But what we are still a bit lost is, the route from Nepal to Laos.
We've noticed some airlines from Nepal to Laos, with Bangkok as transit. Seems like it's the only option we had in the internet and it's pretty much expensive. I know it's quite a long way from Nepal to Laos, but is there suppose to be some land route? We're prepared to switch trains, buses or minivans along the way. Any tips from you would be a great help, it is highly appreciated. In fact, I'll send you souvenirs from Nepal once we get there, seriously, just email me your address :-)
Anyway, thank you for reading. And helping us out!
