(Go with someone with whom you can split the fare. Drivers usually charge 1,200 Nepali Rupees from guesthouse to Sarangkot first viewpoint then back. With an added rate, other taxi would take you up to the second viewpoint where you don’t need to hike up for about 15 minutes)

 Take a bus from the Lakeside to Prithvi Chowk at 20NPR then take another local bus to Begnas and pay 35 NPR.1.00
