Chitwan to Nagarkot


What's the best way to travel from Chitwan (Sauraha) to Nagarkot by tourist or public bus? I'd rather not have to pay for a taxi from Kathmandu to Nagarkot. Thanks for your help.

The best way is travel with a private car and a driver ;-)

By bus you can reach Kathmandu and then from kathmmandu to Chitwan you can take this one:

hmm........it's like this you see.......(since it says you are from Northern CA)

you want to go from Monterey to Berkley but skipping SFO

you may hop on a Greyhound on Monterey but whether you like it or not you will have to break the journey at SFO and either take BART or cab to Berkeley. Sauraha to Nagarkot is like that (ummm...minus the pacific coast!!!!)

chances of finding something from Monterey to Berkley directly => probably nil - if you are relying on public transportation right??

similarly you wont find anything that directly takes you from Sauraha to Nagarkot - you have to get a separate transportation at ktm and yes I think they will want you pay for that journey (unless of course you befriend someone who will take you for free)

but then again you could find a private vehicle in Sauraha, pay him up a healthy sum and say - "skip the town dude don't even slowdown".
