Private vehicles can be arranged to leave at your preference and will also allow you with the flexibility to stop anywhere you’d like to take photographs but for those opting for local transportation, the local buses and micro buses to Dulegaunda are very frequent and leave every ten minutes from the Baglung Bus Park in Pokhara.

Anyone looking for an additional walk or wanting to visit places that are overshadowed by the more popular treks can visit Bhujikot that is situated 7km away from Dulegaunda.
