Pokhara Sightseeing Bus | Swift Holidays Pokhara 2021

Since September 2021, Swift Holidays Pokhara has launched a City Sightseeing Bus in Pokhara, with a package of only NPR 600. In fact, this is the first sightseeing bus of Nepal.

Pokhara, the second-largest city, is the center point for the most of the trekking destinations. Lots of tourists, including both domestic and international, visit to Pokhara every year. However, it is too expensive for the visitors to roam around the city in a reserved vehicle.

Therefore, Swift Holidays launched the Pokhara sightseeing bus in service for the benefits of those tourists who cannot afford the expensive price of reserved transportations.

Generally, two buses have been brought into operation. One bus is for the city sightseeing route and one for the hill hiking route. Tourists will be able to travel in the 25-seat capacity bus with information of major tourist destinations of Pokhara in the package.
