Transportation

Nepal is a landlocked country. The country depends upon Road and Air transport. Due to uneven land topography of Nepal road construction is very costly and difficult. Still vast areas of the country has no road access. Such areas are famous among tourists to experience the sense of wilderness and adventure. In the remote places of Nepal people still carry goods using animals or on their back. The hindrances in the development of transportation has equally been a boon for country as it helps preservation of environment and tourism opportunities.

In the major town and cities of Nepal one can easily find public transportation vehicle which is often crowded with local people. One can also hire private car with or without driver for traveling in Nepal. You can also hire a helicopter or twin otter plane for your needs. While trekking on the remote highlands of the Himalayas the only choice for transportation is animals like Yak and Sheep. Porters can also be hired to carry goods while on the trek.

One can get a direct flight to Kathmandu from major cities of Asia. Or they also have option to enter Nepal via road from Nepal-India border.
