Getting around in/around Katmandu

Jump to last reply

We are two couples in our late '70's visiting Bhutan and Nepal next month (September) with a tour in Bhutan and freelancing in the KTM Valley. We have hotel reservations in Thamel and expect to use taxis and/or car hires to tour the recommended sights including an Everest flight. We will be in KTM for six days.

Going in, have planned to use the hotel to book taxi or car on day-by-day basis. This leaves the quality and reliability of the drivers, not to mention English capability, to chance. Maybe the better route is to book the car and driver for the complete week, assuming the previous capabilities are present.

Has anyone had random use of taxis/cars for getting around in the KTM Valley during their stay? Can you recommend that course? If not, how about hiring a dedicated car and driver? Was that a good experience? If so, can you recommend the name of the driver or company?

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
