Varanasi to Kathmandu, Mt. Everest


I got out from India, go to Kathmandu, Napal.




  • I see Ganga (Ganges river). It is large river.
  • So many of f**king touts.
  • I visited Marnikanika Ghat. There is also so many cheaters here. They said they need money for wood to burn poor person’s bodies, or person who has no family. They are ABSOLUTE CHEATERS. DO NOT GIVE MONEY! NEVER!
  • They have no humanity. I hate them.
  • I went to airport just in time. But my flight (Air India) is delayed about half hour. I think staff (at least ticket counter staff) should tell me about that, but no kindly staff in there. Moreover, the flight delayed thirty minutes more. Silently.

Kathmandu, Nepal

Around Mt. Everest. It seems that a mountain in center which hides in cloud is Everest.

  • It is a little warm than I expected. (But very cold in night and early morning)
  • I went to Mountain flight to see Mt.Everest by Buddha Air. But I can see only the foot of the mountain because of clouds.
  • It is very quiet than India! Also few garbases in road side. (It is like after festival moment in Japan) So many people cleans entrances their home.
  • Cars and motorcycles drives rough, but a little bit milder than India.
  • So many polices in roads. They do traffic control sufficiently.
  • Interruptions of the power supply happens very frequently. But I think it is almost same as Varanasi. (Perhaps it depends on seasons?)
  • Internet connections is good. Some WiFi spot reaches 700kbps. It is better than India’s hodel I stayed.
  • Many shops of SIM and Smartphones as same as any other cities.
  • So many cables above roads. Power line or signal line? How many used? How it made? It is mysterious.

I’ll go back to home tomorrow, via Delhi.

I’m in India

I’m very tired.

Some memos For person who will comes India whenever.

How to get out of airport and go to hotel

Many sites says that you will face some difficulties when getting out of the Indira Gandi International Airport. So you should ask pick-up service or something to your hotel. But I could get out and go to New Delhi Station with the Airport Express easily without any problems. If you will not arrive at midnight (The trains will suspend at midnight), it is probably good way. I think there is no need to stay airport until morning.

At New Delhi Station

You should leave this station ASAP. Sometimes many indians come here (Rush hour?). Many people push each other because there is no space to walk. Some people are fighting (literally). Station staff beats the counter window to banish people for some reason. Very fearful.

SIM Card

Today’s mission. Getting SIM Card. docomo (A mobile network provider in Japan) serves roming service in india, but it is too expensive.

I bought a SIM card at Airtel counter in the airport. It was easy. I showed them my passport. They take a picture of me. I told them my name, my father name and my hotel name. Then they wrote application paper for me.


I bought around 6 pm. They said that I should call 59059 to activate around 9pm – 10pm.

First try is failed. It might be because of my roaming setting. Probably we must disable roaming when call them to activate. (They told me about the problem on the phone in English. But it is hard to understand to me…)

In second try, I switched off the roaming option, and selected mobile network to “2G airtel”. Then they ask me the expected question (Name, Father Name, Hotel Name). I could activated my SIM card correctly.

But I could not use their network. I will solve tomorrow because sleepy.

Difficulties to find my hotel

  • The hotel address shown at reservation site was different from actual hotel address.
  • The hotel place shown on google maps was different from actual place of hotel obviously.
  • The rule (or order) of address numbering is not understandable.

So I lost way because of these problems. I walked alone the town several hours at night. It might be so dangerous.

Eventually, I recommend you to ask pick-up service.

I had stayed four nights at “Hotel Private Affairs”. It is around 3000 yen per night. It was large room, good internet connection, good bathroom. This hotel might be good for business.
