Key Points to keep in mind to drive and travel in to Nepal. *Keep your car original document in the car along with insurance.(Car owner need not to be in the car at the time of border crossing). *Keep Rupee note denomination below INR 100. 500 & 1000 rupee note will not work in Nepal that easily. *Tank up your car in India only,Diesel and Petrol quality are again suspicious there.(Diesel price INR 62/-) *Stepney and pump in working condition.Difficult to look out puncture fellows. *2-3 photocopies of your RC & License. *Print out of hotel vouchers. *Try reaching your destination lastly by 10 pm,you will not see anybody in market beyond 10 pm. *Mobile phones will not work,moment you cross border.Use STD-PCO,there is A local code +97 for cheaper call rates to India,not sure though for the exact code. *Avoid Self driving in Kathmandu,take up taxi.Very crowded some of the areas specially in peak hours. *Book hotel with Own free parking,paid parking are pretty expensive like INR 300-400 per day. *Stuff you car with eatables,they are expensive in city considering it as a tourist spot. To Buy there: Thumb rule here is haggle haggle and haggle.... 90% of the stuff sold there is Indian make and rest 10% is inferior Chinese make(told by a local shopkeeper). *Jackets & winter wear and cheaper there,we didn't buy though. *Local Handicrafts and wall hangings are worth giving a try.Good embroidery work product you get in here. *Get some packets of WAI-WAI noodles. To Drive in to Nepal: Nepali Drivers are very sane drivers,they are far patient enough than we Indian's. *Roads are 98% good with lot of blind curves,can push you car but be cautious on curves. *Avoid night Drivings,Curves are misleading in the dark. *Keep margin on curves when you see Buses from either of the sides. *If vehicle ahead you gives Right indicator that means""Wait for pass".Wherein in our roads right indicator means road clear "go pass by". *Before you get your hands on horn to honk,you will get pass before you ask( Applicable only for highways). *Driving in Kathmandu in evenings is like any of the metro's in India.Bikes and crowd all over. Getting to Border: There are lot many borders from where you can get in to Nepal.Few of which am aware are: 1.Sanauli (95 Kms from Gorakhpur and roads are decent enough single lane with undulations). 2.Badhnai (Approx 160 kms from Gonda,hell lot of undulations on road,not advisable). 3.Mahender nagar (This is somewhere in to Uttrakand).Not sure 4.Kakarbhita ( This is towards west Bengal somewhere).Not sure Stay in Pokhara: *Petrol and diesel are in scarcity here,hence black marketing is very obvious.Petrol cost was INR130 in black. *Heaven for trekkers,lot of packages and camps are run here on 3,5,10 days basis. *Rafting,Paragliding and other sort of sports can be done on the above camps. *Can hire cycles & motorbikes to roam around localy. Cycle may not be that handy to climb hills. *Bike on hire will cost INR 500 on per day basis and petrol is again in short supply. *Tank up your car in Kathmandu,there you have some decent Petrol bunks.avoid bunks on highways and suburbs.
