I'm a solo rider, traveller and English blogger; have travelled through many places in India on my Enfield Bullet. These Vlogs are my thoughts, feelings and experience, they are not about "ME"; so you won't see "me" in these videos.
I would like to remain anonymous.
I tend to give much more detail about the places I visit, and hence these blogs are more like tour guides helping your travel planning.
Visiting tourist attractions in Pokhara is my 18th travel blog in English
About my solo motorcycle tour
I have done many solo motorcycle rides throughout India, but this is the first one I recorded/captured using my GoPro and DSLR with the objective of creating a travel blog Channel. My solo ride started in Kolkata, going towards Murshidabad, then to Darjeeling for a three-day visit which was completely rain drenched, then going to Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim for another three-day visit; and I think Gangtok is one of the best capital cities in India with very less pollution, orderly traffic, good roads in the city and so on. Initially when I started from Kolkata, my plan was to go to the north-eastern states like Assam, Meghalaya and so on, but in Darjeeling and in Gangtok it was raining and so was in Assam. So I change my plans and went instead to Nepal crossing its border at Raniganj (West Bengal) Kakribitta (Nepal side) and took 15 day permit (Bhansar) for taking my Enfield Bullet motor cycle to the country. Riding through east-west highway from the eastern border of Nepal, I reached Bardibas turning right on to take Japan highway or Bardibas-Banepa Road/BP Koirala Road to go through one of the most enchanting and beautiful places in Nepal to reach Kathmandu.
I was in Kathmandu for about a week, taking a single room at a home stay very close to Thamel a shopping centre for tourists for only about US$4 per day or about 250 Indian rupees.

From Kathmandu I went to Pokhara riding on Prithvi highway which has a number of tourist attractions on both sides and a lot of water sports activities on the Trishuli River such as rafting - https://youtu.be/fcCljhk6Dj0
Reached Pokhara after riding 200 km from Kathmandu and stayed for 3 days but due to heavy rain I could not venture outside my room, which again was very cheap (about 300 Indian rupees per day) as it was tourist off-season - https://youtu.be/wxFlqY0blpw
I crossed Nepal-India border at its western end (Bhimbatta-Nepal side and Banbasa-Indian side), close to Sitarganj in Uttarakhand. I reached Dehradun to stay for the next two months, going to a few tourist places in the state, but details about that will be in my next playlist video blog.
