Five Fucking Stars
Yo. This bus rocked. Seven hours flew by.
Bus ride from Pokhara to Kathmandu
The bus was of nice standard and we got shown to our seats. The journey was long as expected leaving at 7.30am and arriving in Kathmandu just before 4pm. We stopped pretty early into the journey for a toilet break which seemed too soon to stop. In total we had 3 toilet breaks and one lunch break which were all pretty swift meaning we could try and just get to Kathmandu as quickly as we could!! The actual drive felt really bumpy making it really hard to sleep. We have traveled on several tourist and local buses here in Nepal and this was the toughest of them all. Felt a bit scary going so fast near the huge mountain drops. Apart from that was all good and dropped us off right in Thamel. Thanks !

Enjoyable trip in excellent weather. The bus driver was friendly and chatted with the two of us during the scheduled stops along the way.
