There are now many airlines offering frequent domestic flights to major cities in Nepal, which indeed is the most convenient way to travel around Nepal. They have domestic airports in different parts of Nepal, namely Bhadrapur, Janakpur, Khandbari, Bhojpur, Pokhara, Bharatpur, Jomsom, Itahari Bishnupur, Gadhimai,Tikapur, and Siddhicharan. You can also travel by the local bus. However, it can be a bit confusing, but they are affordable. The bus can be crowded at times. Rickshaw/tempo is good for short jaunts if you don't have much luggage and don't mind being bounced around a bit. There are two types of taxis: "private," which pretty much run from the airport to your hotel and “shared taxis,” which don't leave until they are full.
