Posted by: Admin | Date: March 16, 2012

The tourist buses to Pokhara-Kathmandu-Pokhara route have hiked the fares following the recent hike in the price of the petroleum products by the government as the increased price has amplified their traveling costs.

The tourist bus entrepreneurs have raised the fares of the tourist buses by Rs. 50 per person for domestic tourists and US$ 2 per person for foreigners.

According to Nepal Association of Tours and Travel Agents (NATTA), the fare has been fixed at Rs. 400 per person in non-AC buses and Rs. 550 per person in AC buses travel for domestic tourists.

Similarly, the fare has been raised to Rs. 400 per person in non-AC buses travel and US$ 12 per person in AC buses travel for foreigners.
