AHDK131012: Delhi to Kathmandu - Oct 12, 2013

Postby hart_t » Tue Jan 08, 2013 5:46 pm

Ok here we go. Early doors but we are booked on the AHDK tour later this year. Booked early due to the flight demand out of Nepal during the busy tourist season. Suspect our flight is full of trekky types who are doing the Himalayan thing. My wife and I are seasoned Gap (G) adventurers who have had two previous trips in Peru and China. This tour is the completion of a quest we started back in 2003. Looking forward to the using these forums in the coming months. :D T & S

Hello fellow travellers, we - Steve and Julia from England - are getting very excited at the prospect of touring some of India and Nepal and look forward to meeting up with you all. We're arriving in Delhi on 11th October and have pre-booked a night at the tour hotel. Let us know if you're likely to be there early as well and we'll look to hook up with you for a drink if you're free. Cheers S & J :D

Hi Steve and Julia. Great to hear from fellow travellers prior to arrival in New Delhi.

Just over week to go and in the final preps stage with this coming weekend set for the packing.
Weather Picture is looking nice in India Low 30s not too hot! Lower chance of rain.
A little cooler in Nepal Katmandu 23 celsius with electrical activity meaning presipitation! So looks like we will need our rain jackets. To be expected as we are not yet quite through the rainy season, however still two weeks before we get to Nepal. Hopefully we have timed it right to get some great clear scenic views over the mountains.
Shane, Steve & Julia look forward to meeting you and the others next week.

Hello! We're also joining the tour from delhi a week saturday.
There's 4 of us...from Wales (cardiff and llangadfan).
We're flying from heathers on friday and arriving new delhi at about 1a.m.
Unfortunately there weren't any rooms left at the hotel so we're looking into others now.
Very excited about the trip and look forward to meeting you all x

Yeah very excited. Just now checked in online with Ryanair (Heay, I'm a classy chap) for my Monday flight from Dublin to London where I'll spend a couple of days with friends. I fly with Air India on Wednesday night and will check into my 2 star hotel the next day. Nice! I'm very excited about my month's trek in the Himalaya and have somewhat forgotten about India - until I very recently picked up India by (BBC's) Sanjeev Bhasker. A fantastic book and has ignited my India excitment big time. Grab it from your local library, if you can. You'll fly through it. I am. Looking forward to seeing you all on the 10th.
