    Post INDIA Capital New-Delhi to NEPAL capital Kathmandu

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first post, I am new to posting threads and comments online but i am a old biker at the age of 27 .
    I Have gone through many threads in this site but rarely share my views and comments. After a while i have collected my courage to show my silly grammatical mistakes and a trip experience with the people's who share same passion which i have "TOURING"

    I have been touring from last 3 years and riding bike from last 10 years.

    This blog is all about My first trip to Kathmandu with other two bikers Ami "Amresh" and Fat "Reneav"

    I was thinking to go on a tour "Cross country" from very long period but most of my friends backstep at the name of touring on BIKES.

    One day i heard two people in my Office team discussing about a trip to Nepal and i just jumped in the discussion.
    During the discussion a crazy idea appeared to go to Nepal on BIKES and all three of us say yes at the first go.

    As this is going to be my and Ami first trip we have started planing almost 4 months before the trip dates.
    We have created so many plans and modifying them that is altogether a different story.

    On 11 Feb 2012 The trip began without any touring experience and very high spirit to reach and come back to Delhi from Kathmandu.

    Trip Details:

    Riders : Amresh, Reneav, and Manoj.
    Bikes: RE classic 350, RTR 180 and ZMR
    Mile stone planned:
    Delhi - Nanital- Almora - Mahender nagar (Nepal)- Buthwal- Pokahra - Kathmandu - Gorakpur (India) - Lucknow - Delhi
    Mile stone executed:
    Delhi - Nanital - Mahender nagar (Nepal)- Baradia national park - Pokahra - Kathmandu - Nautanwa (India) - Lucknow - Etawa - Delhi
    Riding accessories :
    Jackets , Tool kits, Medical kits, Ropes, Helmets, knee Guards, Elbow Guards, Gloves, puncture kit, snacks, 5 Bags and money.
    And few promises not to cross 60 KMPH which was obviously broken on the very first day:

    New Delhi to Nainital

    All three of us met at a common point on NH 24 (Near Reneav house) at 8 in morning almost 2 hours late from the proposed time and started from there to Nanital thinking to reach by 6 PM.
    We didn't have any idea about the route and the conditions of the road. Reneav told us about some riding signals to stop, speed up and signals to riding on a particular Speed, Slow down etc. which we modified later in the trip.

    We had many stopping points to have tea, snacks and food because of which we started climbing to Nanital at some rough time of 5:30 Pm.
    All three of us committed some stupid mistakes on the road like driving fast changing the lane without looking in side mirror and so on but because of Pure Luck nothing bad happens to any one of us.

    Thanks guys for your positive response,

    So the story continue from Nanital where we drop plan to going to Almora (because there is no border crossing allowed to us )

    At the time of climbing down because RTR cheap rear disc pad its starting getting hot and brake started getting stuck Causing sudden skid. But because of good luck and holy guideline form FAT i survived from being hit by a BOLERO on the curve.

    Luckily we climbdown from the hill without any scratch and started our journey towards Mahendra nagar Nepal, I have no idea which route we took at that time but the roads are Heavenly, Crossing dry river beds through a jungle is one of the most beautiful thing which i have done so far.

    As soon as we entered Mahender nagar we saw a group of people running with burning tires, that scene scared us like hell, And we started searching shad/ hotel room for three of us and safe place for our bikes, We have visited more then 20 hotels and found out that most of them have a stinking smell of "chamili ka tail" we have inquired the people regarding the group and everyone is giving us different answer which again increase the doubt of getting looted and killed in Nepal for three of us and that thing made us suspicious on everything happening around us.

    We finally ended our hunt for a hotel room. We got a nice hotel room with AC for three of us and the most horrifying thing was, we three were the only guys in the hotel and in the visitor register last entry was from some dutch guy in 2008

    Well, here is what happened after we left Mahendra nagar.

    Our Goal was to reach Butwal via nepalgunj..
    Attachment 98299

    we had to cross 468 kms to reach Butwal.

    We were rocking and having fun on the straight roads of Nepal and admiring the Beauty of Nature.. Taking Loads and loads of snaps..

    As we went along, we were happy to see the school kids playing on the roads on their way to school.. They were waving their hands on seeing us.. We took some time to take pics of few kids who kept asking us to take more snaps of them..

    we then started moving and we couldn't resist but stop every 10 kms to admire the nature and fall in love with the place.. It seemed as if God abandoned the place..

    continuing on our journey.. we had to go past few check posts.. we were asked to give all the information about us which included our original drivers license, RC books of our bikes and they gave us a pass.. when we asked what this is about.. they said this path goes through a forest.. and we have to reach the other end (somewhere around 8-10 kms) in 20 mins time.. again, we were confused about why we were allocated time to get to the other end for which they said there are lots of smuggling of wild animals in the forest and if you don't pass the forest in that particular time, we will have to be completely checked and pay some fine.. and speed limit of 60kmph.. In between we saw wild animals which was pretty cool as we were riding in the middle of the forest on bikes and animals were crossing the roads in between..

    I have a video of us riding in the forest.. Will upload it later some time..

    We were asked to give details again in another check post and again we were going inside the forest.. we reached the other end of the 2nd checkpost.. we were just outside the Bardia National Park (150 Kms from Mahendra nagar).. Manoj always wanted to tent out in a national park so we asked to police guys about this and we were pushed to another guy by name Krishna.. we had a conversation with him.. and we were in a big dilemma whether to camp in the forest.. and we finally decided to stay back here over the night..

    we were off the road for almost 10kms towards the cottage of Krishna..

    Name of the cottage - Wild Route Tented Camp..
    Address - Wild Route Tented Camp, Bardia national Park, Thankurdwara, West-Nepal.
    Mobile Number - +977-9803833881, +977-9848070831
