Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 Nepal Monday 7th-November-2016. Chisapani to Kathmandu. 11 miles.  Not really much to say today it was a very short ride into Kathmandu and I was in a hotel by 10.30.

The ride itself wasn’t very pleasant at all. And I’m so glad I waited until this morning! The road surface had disappeared, or rather they were renewing it. There was so much traffic on it. Although not as much as last night. There was a steady stream of traffic all night on the road, I could hear it from my room, and if I looked down over the valley all I could see was one long snaking trail of lights on the road going up the valley!

Once at the hotel, I gave all my clothes a good wash and updated the website. I also had to repair one of the rear panniers. I’m not too sure if I’d been hit or I’d caught it on something, but there was a tear in it. I did some maintenance on the bike and a de-stress for me. I felt pretty worn out after the past few days, and today wore me out mentally with all the traffic and bad road conditions!

Think I’ll play the tourist tomorrow before moving on on Wednesday, the hotel only has a room for two nights, and I’ll probably be bored by then anyway!

  1. The lazy bastards! How many would get there without the internal combustion engine. Looks like an international mad house. Mind you, there are plenty of pot holes on the Isle of Wight.
