Lonely Planet has yet again included Nepal in one of their travel lists! The Kathmandu – Pokhara route has been included in their list of the most beautiful bus rides around the world.
“Anyone who considers the Everest Base Camp Trek Nepal’s greatest challenge should try making this winding route west from the Nepalese capital without seeing their breakfast reappear. The sick bags are handed out at the beginning of this legendary hippy-trail journey, where travellers once rode with their luggage on the roof, a joint clasped tightly between fingers,” writes Lonely Planet.
