  painted rickshaws in Kathmandu
by josephescu

Not only are they original and an activity in its own for the first time traveler to Asia, but rickshaws are the cheapest and fastest option around Kathmandu, irrespective of time of day.
However, keep in mind:
1 - There?s a man cycling hard to get you there, so don?t choose rickshaws for long routes or uphill ones.
2 - While bargaining is a common fact, 10 rupees for the rickshaw man worth a lot more than 15 eurocents for you. On the other hand, if everybody auctions to the first price, budget travellers will have to walk in a few years......

A normal ?tourist? fare for an average distance around Kathmandu should be less than 100 Nr, so it?s better to offer 50-60 Nr and agree on 80-100 Nr.
