Getting around:

It is easy to find your way around Nepal. In Kathmandu, there are taxi’s and rickshaws readily available to take you wherever you wish to go. There are daily tourist buses to all of the major destinations that can easily be booked from your hotel. There are domestic flights which service all of the main tourist areas and while the cost of a flight ticket is higher than that of the equivalent bus the flight times are very fast and the cost is reasonable.

Most people that work in the tourism field speak very good English, so it is easy to communicate and to be understood. Many people also speak other languages as well which is a  bonus for tourists.
