Personal highlights

  1. Prithvi Highway: connecting Kathmandu with Pokhara
  2. Dangerous road: broken by earthquake and heavy trucks
  3. So much traffic: too many buses and trucks on the road
  4. Bad drivers: ruthless driving and dangerous overtaking
  5. Journey: worst drive ever, about 8 hours for 174km!
