Kathmandu to Pokhara by Car
The actual fare of a Private car transfer from Kathmandu to Pokhara costs NPR 14350. The capacity of the car would be 5 seater including driver. But, the best comfortable experience would come when you travel with 3 persons in total excluding the drive. One at front and two at back. The car will have a separate luggage storage at the back. The price includes the fuel, road permits but does not includes 13% government tax. The car is full options and comes with great Air conditioning.
If in case you want to come back to Kathmandu the next day and want to hold the car overnight. Each overnight will cost you NPR 2500. And happy news is you don’t need to pay any extra when returning back from Pokhara to Kathmandu. Its always a great idea to hold a car if you are returning back after one or two days. But holding a car is subject to availability. Holding a car to more days lead to non-productivity, which is a loss for the owner. If you wish to use the same car for your sightseeing activities in Pokhara, it will cost you about NPR 6000 per day. But the cost also depends upon points of sightseeing.
Kathmandu to Pokhara by Jeep
When you are traveling long distance as well as if the road is muddy, gravel or off road you can book a jeep drive. The seating capacity of a Jeep would be 8 but for a comfortable and luxury drive and distance between persons next to each other, we would suggest 5 passengers. Since the road condition in Nepal is not too good as compared to European Nations, Americas etc.

What are the cost then?
There is a simple formula to calculate the cost. The base price of car is NPR 14350 so for a Jeep, simply multiply 14350 by 1.5 which will gives you 21525. The same formula is used to calculate the overnight charge as well as sightseeing. But when it comes to transfer through off road, gravel and muddy road the charge would be 25% more of total cost.
