You can also buy mineral waters but we usually recommend tap water which is pure and it helps us not promoting plastic bottled water.
We mostly use the comfortable and efficient vehicle so that you may not get a problem during the ride. We use private or tourist vehicle for sightseeing in the Kathmandu. Depending on the nature or group sized, we use cars, minibus, vans or jeep for travelling along the narrow and bumpy roads of Nepal. Mostly we use AC vehicles for your comfort.
