The road less travelled – Zangmu

If you’ve got a hankering for an old-school border crossing the Tibetan frontier at Kodari should do the trick. On the Nepali side it’s organised so that a large range of perpetually smiling middlemen can extract as many rupees as they can to ferry gear across the Friendship Bridge into […]

Miranda Krestovnikoff My Favourite Beach
