The Kathmandu Durbar Square holds the palaces of the Malla and Shah kings who ruled over the city. Along with these palaces, the square surrounds quadrangles revealing courtyards and temples.
Nepal is a country with one of the worst public transportation in the world. Taxi within a city doesn’t have any regulation. You always have to bargain with a taxi driver. There is no fix fare rule or meter system neither there are any taxi company where you can complain about your trip. Renting a car and traveling across the city is the perfect solution in Nepal for travelers. You can rent a car in two different way. Disposal basis or fixed trip basis.
Disposal basis refers to renting on hourly basis. This is most suitable for conference or family meeting. If your waiting time in total exceeds driving time then you can easily rent a car on disposal basis. Fixed trip basis refers to tours within selected places. It can be either termed as full day sightseeing or half day sightseeing. Similarly drive from Kathmandu to Nagarkot via Bhaktapur can be referred as fixed trip basis.

How Car Rental in Nepal is different than other countries
Unlike other countries system of hiring a car or jeep is slightly different in Nepal. In contrast to India we don’t have kilometer basis. Similarly in contrast to Europe we don’t have per day basis. There are many terms and cost factors associated on rental deals. Normally car, jeep and coaster are available on rent. If you need vehicles within Kathmandu there will be multiple options. You can either hire on disposal basis or fixed trip basis. Fixed trip basis is the only options left if you need to drive out of Kathmandu.
DRIVER AND CAR CONDITIONS
Green color number plate signifies vehicles as tourist purpose vehicle. It doesn’t make difference for using private number plate for drop and pick up to any place within Nepal. But private vehicle from one city can’t make local sightseeing in another city. For that you can either use green number plate tourist purpose vehicle or use local private vehicles. We Himalayan Car Rental are proud to let you that all vehicles own by us does belong to green number plate, i.e. Specific Tourist Purpose Vehicles.
