Travel to Nepal by road and it’s expenses!
Many days I wanted to visit Nepal, but I am a poor traveler, so I can’t afford to fly. I did not get any post/help to go by road even after doing a lot of research. I did not get any word after posting on Facebook a few times. Many people said that now it is not possible to go by road/visa. With all that in mind, I submitted 6 passports for the visa of Nepal in December 8. As usual, the next day I got all the passports with the visa back. Then on the 10th, 7 people submitted their passports for a transit visa to India. Although there is a delivery date on the 19th, we deliver the passport on the 22nd due to the bus ticket on the 23rd.
Unfortunately, 1 person did not get a visa. Later he went by plane, again 2 people were from Kathmandu, later they separated. So I paid for all the expenses here as one person.
