Friends, I am planning my tour from India to France & UK with a start date of Jan 2024. I am an Indian citizen with Indian passport. A key decision I need to make is the best route from out of India.
I am considering the following two overland options:
1. via Pakistan and Afghanistan - Due to strained political relations between India and Pakistan, getting a visit visa to Pakistan for Indians is difficult if not impossible. Passing through Afghanistan also appears a bit tricky right now.
2. via Nepal & China - Getting into Nepal is not an issue. However, the route through China takes me either through disputed border areas (India, Pakistan, China) (around 2600 Km) or through Tibet (around 4800 Km).
See my travel plan here: https://www.cyclemy.world/paris-2024 and the 3 route options in the attached image. I am looking for someone who can guide me in choosing one of the options. Thanks a lot.
