Cycling The Tribhuvan Highway Part 1
Short day today, with only 33 miles cycled, but it was a hard 33 miles! They were all uphill, and it took me 5 hours!
Tomorrow looks just as bad, if not worse than today! Great, I can’t wait!
Apparently, there are two routes to Kathmandu from Hetauda. One is 220km long, or there’s a more direct route, of 70km. The only problem being, the shorter way is more of a track, the road surface disappeared a long time ago! Plus there’s also the small matter of a 2000 metre climb! I think I’ll wait until the morning before deciding!
I spent most of the afternoon in my hotel room updating the website until about 4 o’clock. After that, I went out for a shave and to look around, I was also keen on trying to find out more information on the roads to Kathmandu.
I’m reminded a bit of China with the food stalls on the street corners selling chicken pieces on skewers, it certainly tastes as good!
