Kathmandu is the starting point and Pokhara is the ending point of ABC Hiking. If you want to fly Kathmandu to Pokhara, it takes 25 minutes to reach Pokhara. But, if you don’t want to stay in Pokhara before the ABC trek, We can go directly from Kathmandu to the trekking starting point Nayapul by using Bus or Microbus. Kathmandu to Nayapaul takes about 9-10 hours by driving.

It’s easy to go to the starting point of the ABC trek. If you start your trek from Kathmandu then you need to go directly to Nayapul(Starting Point) of ABC by catching the Bus from New Buspark, Kathmandu.

But if you don’t want to drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, you can take a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. and if you wish to stay one night at Pokhara before trek and don’t want to fly, you need to catch Tourist Bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara at 6:30 Am.

After returning back from Base camp, you can either take a Bus or Private Car from Ghandruk to Pokhara or Nayapul to Pokhara. You can also come back to Kathmandu directly from Nayapul.
