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 get you to your destinations.
During festival times and peak tourist seasons, all means of transportation get overbooked. Adrift Adventures Nepal assists you hold or book flight tickets, tourist bus, rent a car, van etc and also train tickets in India. We deliver tickets to your hotel or residence. You can book transportation or hold a seat without paying any advance. Payment should be made on the day of your arrival after issuing a ticket. This may not be applicable for all sectors however.
Rent a Car
There are no ‘drive yourself’ rental cars available in Nepal but you can easily hire cars with drivers.
It is quite popular to hire a car to Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini. You can also rent a four wheeler to get to trekking trail heads such as Syaprubensi in Langtang and Besisahar in Annapurna and to Jiri in Everest.

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 air fares. Airlines will accept payment from visitors only in hard currency.
All travellers are charged an insurance surcharge of US$2 per leg. Air fares 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, particularly when flights are cancelled 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 domestic flights. There is a Rs 170 domestic airport tax payable at check-in.
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 Rs 100 per day to rent, an Indian or Chinese made mountain bike costs from Rs 200 and an imported foreign bike costs around Rs 700. Children's bicycles can also be hired.
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.
