    Hi
    What’s the rough timescale to get to Kathmandu? - need to arrive for 14th September, ideally have 6 weeks to get there.
    Is it doable? Is it too late in the season for you? Interested?

    Many thanks
    D

    If you're looking at India/Nepal, make sure you look at the usual dates for the monsoon season. I think you'll find August is still monsoon, with it starting to cool and dry in September, but I'm no expert.
    Riding out tonight to case the promised land...

    Visiting Nepal in March/April so did some research. The monsoon season starts late May through to late August/early September.

    I’ve not been into Nepal so I don’t know the riding conditions or how long it would take for that section. I’d love to get into Nepal!

    I could ride to the China border in 3 weeks no problem. So Katmandu should be fine in 6. We were at Everest about that date so I guess Katmandu would be ok mid Sept.

    The china group I’m looking at joining up with are going through a lot earlier I think. I’m seeing one of the riders this weekend so should know more then

    I reckon about 28 days to China. 14 days in China and 10 in Napal/India then fly back from Mumbai. So about 8 weeks.

    Perfect) I'm just trying to work out the prices at the moment. I reckon it will be close to £6k plus Carnet (6-800) and visas (Russia 120, China 240, India and Nepal). I'll be in touch!

    Rob - you would absolutely love this trip.

    Monkeyboy - if Magadan / ROB, I'm in, whether this year or next. China was great but I am China'd out for now and doing India in March. Nepal is brilliant and ideal for an Enfield...
