TRAVELING by motorbike is a unique way to explore any city, but when Alex Chacon strapped on a camera and rode 1,000 miles across Nepal, he recorded an insane journey you’d only otherwise experience by doing it yourself.

This 4-minute POV travelogue is a solid example of armchair traveling, and may leave you feeling like you’ve seen a little more of Nepal than the average video shows.

Take the journey with Alex through Nepal’s crowded streets and deserted countryside as he weaves through traffic, crosses running rivers, meets locals, and shows us the standard $4/night Nepal hotel room. Oh, and he also offers some honest feedback on Google Maps’ suggested Nepalese backroads.
