          FAQs

          1. Do I need to buy a bus ticket in advance?

          We suggest you to book Kathmandu to Pokhara bus tickets a day or two in advance. Why?

          During the peak season, the Kathmandu to Pokhara bus route is one of the most popular, so tickets can be sold-out days in advance.

          If time and money aren’t big issue, hiring a private car/ jeep for the trip from Kathmandu to Pokhara is a great idea.

          For about USD 160, you can hire an entire Jeep (up to 7 seats) which, when divided by multiple travelers, becomes a fairly cost-effective option.

          It's also a more comfortable experience, where you can spread around your group and control when and where you stop on the way.

          “Nepal is in the Himalayan mountains, right? So, that means I may suffer from altitude sickness? Yes or No. Kathmandu, Pokhara and most of the other historic cities are situated at an elevation of between 800 and 1400 meters.

          This means that there is no chance of altitude sickness if you stick to these areas. Head to the hiking trails of the Himalayas though, and as soon as you get above about 3000m, then altitude sickness is a possibility, and the higher and faster you get higher, the higher the risk becomes.
