   Diary 1  2  3  4  

To gain understanding of my tour, I have found some maps. This is a rough plan, and things are likely to change along as I go. In addition, I made a loop through Nepal, Bhutan and northern India, located quite close in eastern India.

14/12     6/1 12/1 28/1 3/2 12/2 ->
Nepal   Bhutan Bangladesh India Nepal Denmark

The main purpose is to find and inspect wild plants. They are scatted all over the country, and I will be look for them on the tour, which will bring me from one hot-spot to another. I also hope I will be able to see some of the plants I privately interested in: Kedrostis foetidissima, Typhonium venosum, Stemona tuberosa and Momordica cochinchinensis.

Along the route, some other sights of interest are found. There is a list of those below the maps.
