Nepal is a neighbouring country of India which lies to the north of India. India-Nepal shares an occasional love-hate relationship. To western people, Nepal is all about the Himalayas. Nepal points of interest for tourists include its capital city- Kathmandu and the breathtakingly beautiful town of Pokhara. Chitwan is a thickly forested area by the bank of Rapti river. It is a nice place to visit and spend a couple of days. Nepal can be reached from India overland by many crossing points. Raxaul is one such point. The border crossing scene at Raxual is beyond appalling. Travellers are advised to stay away from it.
