Name India, Nepal & Tibet Mid Sept 2010

Hi folks! Looking to head to India, Nepal & Tibet between Sept-Oct 2010 - Would be great to share the adventure with like minded people.

- Tibet - **booking/deposit will be finalised in the next couple of days!

Snowlion is the company we are with - we have 5 people on this tour already and can fit in an extra 3 people, here is the link to the tour details:

Most of us are arriving from Xining, China and catching the overnight train to Lhasa.

Then once the tour is over, heading into Nepal from the Tibetan boader. Some others are leaving to hike around Nepal but I will unfortunately be having a short stay in Kathmandu and then heading on the train to Dehli where I will travel around Northern India for 3 weeks. Happy to see pretty much anything and everything of Northern India. I was hoping to hire a motorbike in India to travel around on, or a bike... :)

Travelling on a budget so will be rough'n it!! Have never travelled to India before so looking forward to the chaos and culture!

Let me know if this trip interests you :)

Todd Hey dev, consider this trip if you'd like to go back to india: http://globetrooper.com/the-great-circular-indian-railway-challenge-2011. There are apparently 20 or so people confirmed (here and elsewhere), so it should be quite an adventure.

Jessica_Alice Hi dev! Will need to be in a tour group thingy for Tibet and have found one with SnowLion for 9 days - I have no set plans yet on how long I would be going to the other countries for as I'm leaving it open...just want to make sure I wont be alone in india and nepal as could be intense going solo - standing out from the crowd with long blonde hair and all haha. So really I am pretty laid back with the plans, I havn't booked the flights yet either.

TuckerWasHere Jess, sounds like an awesome trip. I'm actually going to be in that area of the world at the exact same time. I have an around the world ticket that is flexible where I can change the dates if needed. I think I fly into New Delhi around mid Oct and leave around Dec 1st or so.

Jessica_Alice Hey! Were you thinking of going to Tibet also? Need to be in a tour group to go to Tibet, just trying to find a group of us to go around mid september. I plan to be in India around early-mid oct so that works out well also :) You can add me on facebook if you like, I am (unfortunately) on there way too much these days.

TuckerWasHere Yes, totally thinking about going to Tibet. I'm a part time photographer, so Tibet is definitely on my bucket list of places to see. I've started a page on facebook to keep friends/family up to date with my travels http://www.facebook.com/tuckerwashere
