A new 4,000-mile bus route has been created from England to the Himalayas.
The 12-day commute goes from Birmingham,Central England,to the city of Mirpur at the foot of the mountain range,which crosses Nepal,Tibet,India,Pakistan and Bhutan,while the bus will pass through seven countries including Iran before finally reaching its destination.
Passengers keen to take the route will be charged £130 for a ticket,and it is expected to be busy as Birmingham houses the world’s largest population of Kashmiri expats.
The idea is to run four luxury buses on the route once a fortnight,and while some are worried about security concerns,Birmingham’s Labour MP Khalid Mahmood,whose family are from Mirpur,believes it’s a “great idea”.
He said: “It’s a great idea that will bring the two cities closer together.
“I’m sure the service will prove very popular,especially with average air fares to Pakistan being about £600.”
