Travel Forums Asia India - Nepal Overland????

Hi everybody,
I am planning on booking my flights to India in the coming weeks and am currently doing my research on places of interest/intineries etc. Any recommendations of less obvious places are appreciated. Anyway my main query is getting to Nepal; Is it possible overland? If so where is the border crossing?

Also any info regarding trekking in the himalaya's would be great as I just had a look at some tour companies and there are loads of regions and routes so I am clueless as to which Id prefer. Any suggestions?

Any help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks in Advance
Dave

most important bordercrossings are at sunauli (south border, north of Varanasi) and kakarvitta (east border, west of Darjeeling/new Jaipalguri). u can get a visa at the border, so that is convenient too.
