Nepal is roughly the same area as Arkansas, so not all that big. While cities aren't generally that far apart, it took us 7 hours to drive the 60ish miles between Chitwan and Kathmandu because the roads are so windy and unkept. We hired a driver recommended by my local friend, and I wouldn't suggest trying to drive yourself unless you're familiar with driving in 3rd world countries... i.e. no signals and any signs/lines on the road are suggestions ;) If I went again I'd fly between cities (most have flights with very small planes); however, I'm really glad to have had the experience of seeing all the roadside villages, sights, and random herds of animals.
