The proximity of this city from Kathmandu(178.8 km), Pokhara (108.9 km), Bharatpur (104 km), Birganj (234 km), Damauli (59 km) and Prithbinarayan(Gorkha) (76 km). Bus, Micro Bus, Taxi and other land transportation are available to go out of the city, for internal transportation Bus, Minibus, and Car/Jeep hiring is available. Also, Way Back to when trekkers finished the  Manaslu Circuit Trek Besisahar to Kathmandu.

Actually, we do not get any luxurious direct tourist bus from Kathmandu to Besisahar so far. But you can get a tourist bus from Kathmandu to Dhumre and exchange bus from Dhumre to Beshisahar local transportation. Despite being the gateway to Annapurna Circuit Trekking, Besishar lacks this facility. Tourists who choose to make Annapurna Circuit Trekking either have to go by local bus or microbus (smaller van-Public). Besides, some tourists prefer to travel to Besisahar by private car or jeep too.

As a matter of fact, the local buses are not luxurious enough to travel 179km which is around 7-8 hours. And we have heavy traffic sometimes. At this time the drive will be more complicated. Again, the dusty, narrow and rough road adds more difficulties to us. However, we have no options.

No domestic and international flights connect Kathmandu to Besisahar. Even other cities like Pokhara, Chitwan, and Lumbini cannot connect to Besisahar via flight because Besisahar has no airport. Whereas, Chitwan, Lumbini, and Chitwan have direct flight connection to Kathmandu.
