Oct 23, 2010 - nepal./ chines. Grenze

Um 6h morgens gings los. Nach 5 Stunden Fahrt durch die „Strassen“ Nepals an die chinesiche Grenze, sollte es noch ca. 2h dauern, ehe wir die peinlichst penibel bewachte Grenze nach China ueberschreiten durften. Arme Wanderarbeiter mit uebergrossen Gepaecksladungen am Ruecken kamen uns entgegen, waehrend wir auf die Gepaecksdurchsuchung warteten. Jedes Gepaecksstueck wurde geoeffnet, Hefte und Buecher durchgeblaettert, der Tibetreisefuehrer von Lonely Planet ist verboten, andre Buecher mit Bildern des Dalai Lama bzw. mit der Abbildung...

Jul 8, 2005 - Adventure getting to Zhangmu--border of Tibet/Nepal

The night before, there were gaps in my drapes, and the starlight was shining through like a floodlight. The stars were definitely the most clear and bright that I have ever seen! The drive Friday was pretty long, too. About 8 hours. We had a great pit stop halfway, though. Once we passed a couple more high passes, we started to descend into the actual Himalya valleys, and the scenery...

Dec 7, 2004 - Into Tibet #24

Dec 6th Kathmandu Yesterday we drove here without problems even though we still had broken front spring. Arriving in Kathmandu felt like the end of an era for us as our Lonely Planet guide book (Istanbul to Kathmandu) ends there!!! It certainly felt like an achievement and the drive here from Pokhara was so pretty. Our broken front spring didn't give us too many problems although speed bumps were always difficult. We stopped at a lovely hotel on the way for lunch and reflected about where we had been and the highlights of the trip. We...

Vi havde hver en personlig guide|baerer, saa det var ren luksus. Vi forsoegte flere gange at...
