I was warned about this.
One day someone will ask me what is the worst bus I’ve ever ridden.
Would it be a 16 hour overnight bus from Udaipur to Mumbai where the A/C dripped water on my face for half the time?
Would it be a 10 hour overnight bus from Hyderabad to Hospet where I was eaten alive by mosquitoes that nested within the seats?
Would it be a 51 hour sleeper bus ride from Hanoi to Saigon?
Would it be a 6 hour local bus ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara where we almost drove off a cliff?
Or would it be this 8 hour bus ride from Pokhara to Kathmandu that was marketed as comfortable enough for “tourists only”?
By a longshot, it would be this devil of regional transportation. Out of the 8 hours, we probably only had 5 minutes of smooth driving. It’s as if someone forgot to put in dampening shock absorbers or more realistically, if this bus had rocks for tires. I’m surprised how anyone survived without throwing up once. I think people were crying too. I wouldn’t be surprised.
To hell with this bus. This bus is a murder weapon.
