1. Re: Lumbini

hiring private car will work out just as expensive as airfare

but then the benifit is to be able to vist palces along the way like you alluded to

you can take a short detour to mankamana

stop at chitwan national park

then on your way back if you decide to come via PKR

it really opens up to more possibilities

like visiting Tansen, PKR itself, Bandipur etc

lumbini hotels are in the link below


if you need a recommendation on agency that can privde a car send me a PM - i may have a recommendation

Hotel Ananda Inn in Lumbini is pretty reasonable and is my recommended hotel there. There are some other hotels too. If you do not want to book in advance then you can just visit there and find one. If you are traveling during the main season then I recommend you to book in advance to be sure.

You can visit Tansen on the way. It's pretty nice village with small lodges.
