At 6am, I packed my luggage, and was picked up to Kantipath Bus Park, Kathmandu.
NOTE: Kantipath Bus Park is not a bus station. It is a street where busses departing to Chitwan National Park & Pokhara are lined up in a straight line.

I caught the bus departing to Pokhara, operated by Mountain Overland, with FREE WIFI in bus, and a FOC mineral water in the bus. I paid USD 12 for the bus ticket.
Bus stopped at Blue Heaven Restaurant for lunch break at Blue Heaven Restaurant. A buffet meal cost me 400NPR (USD 4). Love this restaurant as it offers really good ambience and food.

After 5 hours, I was told to get off at Dumre (a connecting place for Bandipur, Nepal), and then to catch a local bus to Bandipur at 50NPR (USD 0.50).
It was an interesting 30 minutes’ ride. A box of live little chickens sat in front of me.
I arrived at Bandipur, Nepal at 1pm. And, I start to look for accommodations and checked on some hotels.
I checked on Samira Homestay and Milan Guest House before I found my stay at Bandipur Village Resort. I think, I am lucky to find my stay after the third attempt, because, it is the best hotel in the Bandipur, with a budget of USD 30 per room night.
