Transportation is not a problem in Nepal. Different modes of transportation are available according to your budget and preferences. Professional transport entrepreneurs, tour operators, airlines, and transport companies are making their competent services available in the transportation sector of Nepal. Local transportation, including government airlines (Nepal Airlines), may come under the grip of disorganization and extreme weather conditions. But there are more reliable and responsible transport services devoted to getting you to your destinations.

Note: During festival times and peak tourist seasons, all means of transportation get overbooked.

Domestic Air Ticket and Helicopters

Nepal has a fairly extensive domestic air network, served by half a dozen airlines, though only the flights to Pokhara, Meghauli (for Chitwan), Lukla, and Jomsom are much used by foreigners.

Residents and Nepali citizens pay approximately 35% of the tourist price for domestic airfares. Airlines will accept payment from visitors only in hard currency.

All travelers are charged an insurance surcharge of US$2 per leg. Airfares quoted in this book include this surcharge. At the time of research, there was also a temporary fuel surcharge of between US$5 and US$9 per flight, which will continue as long as global fuel prices remain high.

The domestic terminal is the old Kathmandu airport, and its age shows. It can be a chaotic spot, mainly when flights are delayed and crowds of stressed tourists generate an escalating atmosphere of fear and loathing.

Check-in an hour early for domestic flights. Don’t carry pocketknives, gas cigarette lighters, matches, or even trekking poles in your carry-on luggage on any internal flights.

Bicycle

In Kathmandu and Pokhara there are many bicycle-rental outlets, and this is a cheap and convenient way of getting around, particularly around the Kathmandu Valley. Regular bicycles cost around USD 8 per day to rent; an Indian or Chinese made mountain bike costs USD 10 from and an imported foreign bike costs around USD 15. Children’s bicycles can also be hired.

Tourist Bus

Transportation services in Nepal are widespread and less managed. Tourist bus services are one of the most preferred means of transportation for tourists. Tourist buses operate daily from Kathmandu to Pokhara and vice versa and Kathmandu to Chitwan and vice versa at a reasonable cost. Tourist bus services only transportation that operates on time in Nepal comparing to other public transportation.

Train

There are two train lines from Janakpur, but only the service east to Jaynagar over the Indian border carries passenger traffic. They’re narrow-gauge trains and very slow, so they offer an interesting, if somewhat crowded, method of seeing the countryside. Note that tourists are not allowed to cross the border using the passenger train.
