We really enjoyed ourselves in Nepal. It is a definite relief from the high intensity travel of India. Another great place to ride motorcycles, the people are friendly and the countryside beautiful. We rode in from the Eastern border visiting Hile and some smaller villages before heading on to Kathmandu and the Chitwan National Park.
Travelling along the Terai (the jungle below the Himilaya) you could see the mountains rise straight up from the Indian plains. When we got to the top of the first ridge (4000ft+) you could look out and see India roll out before you.
On a walk outside the town of Hile, Nepal, we came upon this young man. The family was putting up corn for the winter. He was having a good time rolling in it.
