Hi all,

I am going back to thailand in feb to meet up with my parents and was thinking about extending my trip a little longer and going over to India, Nepal and Tibet overland. Is it possible to travle overland inbetween these countries? How much should I budget and also how long would you suggest i spend in each of these places? I have two months max.

Thanks in advance,

India to Nepal(and vice versa) overland no problem. Tibet, however, can only be entered on a tour from Kathmandu or Pokhara or a flight from China. India is cheap, Nepal cheaper, Tibet is not. It cost me 430 Us for a 6 night/seven day tour(the minimum)from Kathmandu to Lhasa. Then I had an additional couple weeks after getting a special visa to leave the tour. You usually get 20 days on your Tibet visa.

For 2 months you can do all 3, depending on where you start in India. What you like to do would determine how long to spend in each place and the budget. I can help you out more if you let me know more.

well i have just done the opposite of what you want to do, i took the train from Chengdu in China to Lhasa, Tibet.. then took a 5 day trip to the Nepal border which cost 133gbp and i am now in Nepal and heading to India over the next few weeks...

personally i would say with only 8 weeks to do just Nepal and India, you can fly direct from Bangkok to Kathmandu with Thai Airways and can either go by bus to the Indian border or can fly direct to either Calcutta or Delhi...

Nepal is amazing and if you have not been to India before then it is a fantastic introduction into India as in many ways its very similar...

there are also a lot of tibettan refugees in nepal so you can meet some tibettan people and see their culture whilst you are in nepal

hope that helps a bit

It is good idea to fly to Kathmandu first and from here to go by land or flight to Delhi and fly or land to Lhasa. Price varies but if you can advice how many days you want stay in each country than I can provide more information. But Nepal is great country with lots of thing to do so you should spend more time in Nepal. Contact me for more info
