Home>Nepal Travel Guide>Transpotation
Ghale Treks can arrange the different types rental and official transpotation services upon your request. Some of the transpotation mostly used in Nepal as below;

Rickshaws: They are especially useful for short trips within the old parts of the city where cars can be a problem or are prohibited due to the narrow lanes and crowded marketplaces. The fare should be negotiated beforehand. These pollution friendly pedal powered tricycles are restricted in major traffic thoroughfares.

Taxis: can be hailed off the street, though it might be a bit difficult to find after sundown. The charge for metered taxi is Rs. 10 at initial flag down and then Rs. 404 for every 200 meters. There are numerous taxi companies and all kinds of cabs. All taxis have black plates with white numbers and most of the cabs also carry a sign of “taxi”.

Buses, mini-buses: These public vehicles do not have a schedule and leave when there are enough passengers. The services, however, are fairly frequent. The last city buses stop running after around 8 pm. City buses (that ply within Kathmandu and go to Patan as well as those going to Kirtipur, Banepa, Dhulikhel and Thankot) leave from the City Bus Park located at the eastern side of Tundikhel parade ground. And all over the destations of Nepal can be reached from Naya Bus Park located Gangabu.

Motorcycles, Bikes and Cars are available for renting in Kathmandu, Pokhara and many other cities and towns of Nepal. The best way to see the old parts of Kathmandu is by walking around but riding a bike or a motorbike is also another way to tour around the city without feeling the traffic hitches. Having a Driving License and Passport with you from your home country can help in renting any vehicles. There are no international car rental agencies in Nepal yet but different types of cars as well as vans are easily available for hiring in Kathmandu which usually comes with a driver so that you don’t have to face the traffic hustle and bustle.

Planes: This is the easiest and fastest means to reach the far and remote parts of Nepal. Most of the airstrips in Nepal are quite difficult as they lie on the mountain sides surrounded by high peaks. Apart from the Government owned Nepal Airlines, there are a number of private companies operating domestic flights to different sectors including the always talked about must try one hour mountain flight also widely known as the Everest experience which enables you to have a tryst with the majestic snow capped mountains from Mt. Gauri Shankar to Mt. Ama Dablam to the highest peak in the world – the Mount Everest. This life time adventure, flying at an altitude of 25,000 feet (8,000 m) will surely take your breath away when your plane will fly as close to 5 nautical miles for the closest and highest view of Mt. Everest one could ever see.

Helicopters: Since helicopters requires small landing spaces compared to planes, the former makes it sound much safer too. Helicopters can be reserved to fly to any destination at any time. Helicopter charter for sight seeing is gaining high popularity in Nepal these days. For tourists who have short time but want to see and experience the most of Nepal, helicopter charter would be the best bet as these are not only practical but highly thrilling and pleasurable too. There are lots of domestic airlines providing helicopter services. At present, two types of helicopters MI-17 that accommodate about 22 passengers reaching an altitude of 5000 meters and French made Ecureuil AS35OB series which can carry about 5 passengers are being operated.

Tourist Bus: These are run by private bus companies or travel agencies. Tourist buses are more comfortable, faster and less crowded and more expensive compared to the local buses. The tickets for the bus can be booked either in travel agencies or in the hotel itself. Like the local buses, tourist buses also stops over at a few places in route to your destination providing all the opportunity to see the terrific rural landscape views and the high Himalayas.

Trains: Practically non-existent for the traveling purposes. Railroads are available only in few places like Birgunj, the main entry point to Nepal for Indian tourists coming from Calcutta and Patna which has a railway to Raxaul which lies in Nepal-India border (Railways: total 59 km).
