London to Kathmandu (Nepal) for $350 - OK it was 1979
« on: January 28, 2009, 01:40:33 AM »
Ive just come across a website for overland bus tours from London to Kathmandu - it's a fascinating read.

Try THIS page first.

I dont think anyone would fancy taking that route these days though !!

Here's a LINK to the route map (though a little small)

The trip typically took 7 weeks and cost approx $350 - including campsites, food and various lodgings along the way.

The homepage can be found HERE.

Im not too sure how comfortable that bus would have been for day long drives - the buses in Malta are the same and you wouldnt want to be on these for more than an hour.

I bet it was a great trip.

Ah yes, the famed Hippie Highway of the 70's.  Knew a number of folks, mostly Aussies who made the journey.  First wife and I seriously thought about driving it ourselves in a VW camper van.  Just ran out of time so we did not do it.  Wish I had though.
