  • By Minivan: Minivans operate on most of the popular routes. These are crowded and uncomfortable but the fare is cheap and student discounts may be offered.
  • By Bicycle: Pokhara being a scenic haven, cycling is quite a lovely option to get around in this city. You might not find dedicated cycle stands and paths but be assured that you are safe here.
  • By Scooter: For those with a need for a little more speed, hiring a motorcycle would be a good option.
