Spread the love

Since Nepal being the landlocked country and with several types of landscapes, the development of transportation is difficult.  In Nepal road transportation is the cheaper and suitable means of transportation for the common people of Nepal. But due to the hills, the length of roads in Nepal is big which takes lot of time to travel in short distance too. In hilly region ropeways are the best method for transportation in Nepal which also takes brief time for long distance.
