Welcome to The Tribhuvan Highway
From Birganj, the easiest and quickest route to Kathmandu or Pokhara is along the Mahendra Hwy to Narayangarh and then north to Mugling, but when were the best travel experiences ever easy? If you don't mind the incessant potholes, it’s much more fun to take the winding and dramatic Tribhuvan Hwy, which leaves the Mahendra Hwy at Hetauda, east of Chitwan National Park. The route is prone to landslides in the monsoon but the scenery is breathtaking. Furthermore, you can stop on the way at Daman to stretch your legs and take in some of the best Himalayan views in Nepal.
