So I'm currently in the process of organising a trip riding from my hometown, Adelaide, Australia overland to London - without flying. I will ride to Darwin and have already organised a boat from there to Singapore! My main issue at the moment is trying to find a way around Burma and into India. Is it possible to go through Tibet into Nepal from the Chinese side without a Tour Operator - so far everything I've read has given me the impression that this is not possible. Is it possible to cross the Chinese border into India or Pakistan? Does anyone have any advice for a trip such as this; I know that the security situation in a number of countries along the route can also be an issue, so would love any advice people can give to reduce risks!
