Nepal Expedition Experience 


Written by

Yogesh Ovalekar

When you’re riding, you’re exposed. Cold valley updrafts caress your mountain chilled skin. Nostril burning cityscapes give way to sweet forests and fields. Curious locals greet you every time you stop to rest. You experience the world without a filter. The resulting memory is vivid, pure, and forever beckoning you to return.

Having motorcycled through parts of the INDIA i.e from the Extreme West Deserts of India to the Portuguese territory of Pondicherry, from Tibetian culture of Spiti Valley till the Southern Tip of India(Kanyakumari) I can honestly say that my first International Ride which was Nepal presented some of the most challenging but most spectacular ridings of my life. Although the roads were rough, the finger-licking local cuisine and the traffic comically dangerous at times, nothing beats riding among the Himalayas, meeting its gracious people, and immersing oneself in the ancient Buddhist traditions born in this land.

Pokhara’s location on the banks of a green lake with the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas in the background probably accounts for its popularity but nothing will prepare you for how picturesque this town is.

If you think of hopping on a motorcycle and hitting up the slopes of Nepal, keep this simple fact in mind, your bike WILL break down. It’s just a question of when. All you need to do is take it in your stride and get the bike fixed. Nothing to it. Without uncertainty, there wouldn’t be any adventure.

Chitwan National Park is a jewel of a jungle nestled on the border of India. It’s known for its Bengal tigers, rhinoceros, and elephants. Although we didn’t get to see any tigers, we did get to see some rhinoceros, and loads of deer and elephants during a 5 hours safari through the jungle. It was like Disney Land’s Jungle Cruise but for real. It’s no wonder the UN deemed this park a World Heritage Site.

Whether you’re into Buddhism or not, you need to visit the birthplace of Buddha in Lumbini. The actual site where Buddha is born isn’t much more than a collection of ruins and prayer flag-covered trees but it seems to emanate indescribable energy. More than the birth site itself, Lumbini consists of dozens of Buddhist temples. There’s one built by China, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, and even Germany and France. In no other place in the world can you discover so many types of Buddhist temples in one place.

If you’re addicted to lentil soup, you’re going to love Nepal. New York has its pizza and Nepal has Dhal Bhat. It’s a simple and delicately spiced lentil soup that is usually poured over rice for just about every meal. It’s delicious at first but monotonous overtime. Nevertheless, as the locals say…Dhal Bhat power 24 hours!!!!

 

You’ll see new highs, experience a few lows, learn to strap a bag onto the guard rail with your eyes closed, and at the end of it all, you’ll walk away with some amazing memories.
