Transportation in Kathmandu
The cheapest way to travel around Kathmandu is by bus. You will find plenty of public buses in Kathmandu. Public transportation on a bus is not for someone looking for a luxurious or even semi luxurious experience. Don’t expect that you will get a seat on a public bus.
Taxi is a more comfortable way to travel to Kathmandu. The government has been trying to implement the meters in Kathmandu however you will find that drivers will always negotiate the price. The problem is that you will not know what is the fair price and you can expect to overpay.
Rickshaw is a fun way to travel in Kathmandu. It is only available in limited tourist areas like Thamel.
