Is it easy to catch a bus from katmandu to dehli? i will be there in november - just wanted to check as i fly from dehli - don~t really have time to do india so was going to go to nepal and then just get the bus to dehli and fly out (on a round the world ticket). I am a girl on my own so hoping for the easiest way is it easy and how long does it take? cheers
I think you should be able to get a Bus from Kathmandu to Delhi, I will check it out tonight at home. Also, Nepal is easier to travel for a girl on her own, as the people are nicer and holding back more. What are you thinking of doing in Nepal? How much time have you got? Any particular interest?
Not really sure. I don´t get there till end of october i am on a round the world trip for a year. Was not meant to be on my own so was not worried about it originally. It is just i fly from Bangkok to Katmandu and then have to get to Dehli for my flight to london so i just wanted to check it was easy. Not sure how much time i have all my dates are changeable but i was thinking of maybe having two weeks in nepal and doing some trekking. thank you for your help.
I checked with my Lonely Planet guide, and it is easy to get to Delhi from Kathmandu. There are two different routes, and it takes about 10 hours.
As for Trekking: 2 weeks is a good time to go trekking, most of the treks take at least 1 week, so that leaves you some days to explore Pokhara and the Kathmandu Valley.
The easiest thing for you would probably be the Annapurna Sanctuary, it takes about a week and is very popular. So if you'd ask around there are certainly some other people doing it a the same time, so you could join them. Or you could get on an organised tour, this would save the hassle of getting porters and stuff, although most of the hotels can arrange it for you or know somebody who can (usually a relative who happens to own a Trekking Agency).
I'll keep checking for some more short treks which are easily accessible (you might need a day to get to the starting point and a day back).
No problem going overland from Kathmandu to Delhi. Nepal is only a very small country adjoining India anyhow. One thought is go by bus from Kathmandu to Varanassi, up the Ganges, train to Agra (Taj Mahal), then onto Delhi. Many travel agents and travellers in Nepal to point you in the right direction
i'm thinking of doing a similar trip to nepal around the same time next year, although i haven't booked any ticket yet...still gathering info. i'm 25 yr old female and I have the same reservations about heading off into the unknown as a solo traveller, so it's heartening to see someone else doing it.
hey, you never know we might be in nepal at the same time!
Thanks for all the help - doesn~t sound hard so that is cool.
week trek sounds good thanks for the info.
definately if you are around would be awesome to trek with someone and see nepal - quite a long way away - but would be wicked.
Thanks to you all
