Nepal remains isolated from the world's major land, air and sea transport routes although, within the country, aviation is in a better state, with 48 airports, ten of them with paved runways; flights are frequent and support a sizable traffic. The hilly and mountainous terrain in the northern two-thirds of the country has made the building of roads and other infrastructure difficult and expensive. Despite the fact, most of the transportation is through roadways and the means are buses, taxis, tempos, rickshaws, automobiles, motorbikes, bicycles, etc. Other means of transportation; though in limited areas; are cable cars (Kurintar - Manakamana Temple)and railways (Janakpur - Jaynagar). Condition of Highways vary from well maintained two lane Highways to potholed and hilly roads. The drive in a later type of roads may give you roller coaster ride. Visitors are permitted to drive their own cars but the vehicles must possess an international carnet. There are regular bus services to Kathmandu and major cities from all the border points. The interior parts of the country are also linked with a number of highways and roads. Any way the network of roads and highways have linked several tourist destinations, cities, Industrial and commercial centers in Nepal. The main highways are from East to West and Link roads from North to south.
