Help with my travel plans?
« on: August 08, 2010, 12:45:16 PM »
Hello friends. In February 2011 i will be travelling to Thiruvannamalai for the first time. I would also like to travel to Nepal and visit Palden Dorje. I was planning on catching a train from Thiruvannamalai or Chennai to Northern India before crossing into Nepal however i have been finding it difficult finding the best way to do this. Do any of our members here have any advice they can give me on the best way to plan this trip? My time in India is only 11 days so it is important that i plan my trip beforehand. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Adam,

Please tell me where from you are proceeding?  What is the nearest
airport for you?  Is it an international airport?  Kindly give me these
details so that I can tell you what I know.

Thank you for the fast reply. Palden Dorje is staying in the Bara District Nepal. I believe the exact area is called Halkoriya. Kathmandu airport is a few hours away from this area.

Dear Adams,

You have to reach Chennai International Airport from your place.
From Chennai, you can engage a taxi to Tiruvannamalai which is
about 200 kms from there.  You have to pay Indian Rupees 2000+
for the taxi charges.  For your return, you have to return to Chennai
and from Chennai Airport you may reach Kathmandu Air Port, either
directly {I am not sure about a direct flight from Chennai to Kathmandu} or via Delhi International Airport.

Arunachala Siva.

Thank you for the advice. I will look for flights from Chennai to Kathmandu. Even if my trip is too short to travel to Nepal, i am very much looking forward to seeing Thiruvannamalai for the first time.

Dear Adam,

I wish you happy journey to India and Nepal.  I wish you to have
a good darshan of Bhagavan Ramana's Samadhi and other various
interesting places in Tiruvannamalai like the Big Temple etc.,
