Going directly from Kathmandu to Besisahar/Bhulbhule:


pic 2 Gongabu bus station Kopie small x175 PixThe direct local buses start from the new Kathmandu Bus Station called Gongabu Station in the north of Thamel on the ring road. It’s a little bit hidden and first you have to pass by a shopping mall before you enter the bus park area. You will need a taxi drive to get there which will cost you nearly the same price as the bus ride to Bhulbhule! (Thamel - Gongabu 200-250 NPR in Aug. 2011). The station is rather confusing, but the tickets counters are all in a hall on the left corner at the end of the station. You should buy the tickets a day in advance. Travel agents can organise a ticket charging a small fee for this service. As local busses stop in every village the journey can be rather long and crowded.

Going first to Dumre then to Besisahar: You can take a normal tourist bus in direction of Pokhara and jump out in Dumre. There you take one of the many busses or mini busses going up to Besisahar or Bhulbhule. The Tourist busses start every morning at 7 a.m. on Kantipath, which is  just a 15-minute walk from Thamel. Every hotel can organise the ticket for you, even in the evening. This is the main advantage if you have little time. The bus ride is a little bitmore expensive, but you  eliminate the cost of the taxi ride to the northern bus station and you dont have to get the tickets..  It will sometimes take a little bit longer than the direct local bus if you do not get a fast connection. On other occasions your bus may actually be faster!
