Bikes are 3 times as expensive in nepal as they are in India, so yeah it stands to reason that the rentals are more expensive there. but remember an Indian Rupee is worth 1.6 NR so its still dirt cheap.

The plan had been to buy a bike in India, but i had such a great time in nepal I ran out of time. If your buying a bike, far better to buy it in India and ride to Nepal then come back to sell it in India. because weesterns cant get documentation and because if you sell a bike in Nepal you have to show that youve paid the taxes, you get a lot less on resale in nepal than you do in India.
