I've got a bur under my saddle to go to India and Nepal. My plan/fantasy is to fly into Mumbai, rent a Land Cruiser or maybe a motorcyle, and wind my way around driving up into Nepal and maybe China/Mongolia or Myanmar, then back, although the paperwork of going into China might make it unworkable. I'm thinking 2 weeks.
Does anyone have experience with a trip of this kind? What months of the year would you go? Is English fairly commonly spoken?
And how late does The Raven stay open in Kathmandu?
