Kathmandu to Manthali bus or Kathmandu to Ramechhap bus means same places drive by tourist bus or car when you going to fly to Lukla for your Everest base camp trek or any corner of the Everest region trek. At peak session time due to Kathmandu airport’s busy runway for international flights and not having time to fly for domestic flights to Lukla, after 10 am or later weather can change in the mountain area and flights can be delayed for Lukla. So the airline agency operates all flights from Manthali airport to Lukla.

Getting from Kathmandu to Ramechhap is quite an adventurous experience. You will bid farewell to the crowd and concrete of Kathmandu for a rustic and rural side of Nepal. The first section is through the six-lane highway to Bhaktapur. Past Bhaktapur, the two-lane road climbs gradually past satellite towns to the Dhulikhel hill station. Here, you leave the Arniko Highway and get on the B.P. Koirala Highway. It is also here that the road becomes narrow with a lot of hairpin bends. However, the scenic hills, farms, and villages more than make up for it. For the last half of the ride, you will also get to enjoy the view of the Sunkoshi and Tamakoshi Rivers.

There is only one option among trekkers to travel from Kathmandu to Ramechhap by bus or jeep at 1 a.m. The reason for this is simple: this arrangement does not add a day to your itinerary.
