Share taxi from Kathmandu to Nagarkot - 22-Jul-2014

Hi

We are a couple and would be travelling from Kathmandu to Nagarkot for a 2 night stay there and back to Kathmandu.

I read that private taxis are expensive (1500 NPR+), so, am open to share it with another couple/group.

Travel Dates

22/07/2014 - KTM - Nagarkot

24/07/2014 - Nagarkot - KTM

Anyone interested, pls PM me.

Thanks

A taxi from KTM to Nargakot will cost more than 1,500 rupees, and there's no way you'll fit 4 passengers + their gear into a tiny Maruti Suzuki.

So you'll need to arrange a bigger vehicle at greater cost.

An alternative is public bus to Bhaktapur, and another bus up to Nargakot. Public buses are great fun, and v.cheap.

Yup no way you can fit another couple in a taxi and driive all the way up to Nagarkot with all the baggages...maybe a jeep and that too will be at an extra cost...the cheapest way will be for sure as suggested taking public transportation but you gotta be prepared for the adventure...and tell you it can be possible to take a taxi for 1500 to Nagarkot but not the private cabs!

Nah ńo landslides towards Nagarkot n hope never😉...the other thing to keep in mind is if you taking a bus it drops you off at the bus stand from where you need to carry your packs to your designated hotel😁!

Hi,

We are a mid aged couple arriving in Kathmandu late night on 24th July from Sharjah.

If public buses are good, convenient and economical way, then we wish to take the bus on 25th July to Nagarkot.

Hence, please guide me as to where to board the bus in order to get to Nagarkot ? Any suggestion for a decent hotel in Nagarkot ?

Thank you for suggestions,

Shankar

Sorry there will be no public buses late nigh to Nagarkot n you would not want to drive one even if there were as there are no street light on the way to Nagarkot...I can still suggest you take the airport cab to bhaktapur then later in the afternoon after your sightseeing tour of the city take a public bus to Nagarkot...hope this helps...if you looking onto a descent hotel...you might as well want to quote the price you lookin into!
