There are regular micro bus running on the street of Pokhara city. You may need to change bus to visit different sightseeing spot. Ask your hotel reception about micro bus route.

By bicycle

It is possible to hire a bicycle in a lot of shops in Lakeside for a small price (Rs 100-300 a day). If you are hiring a bicycle make sure the seat is not too hard. Also, try realigning the seat if it is set uphill way, instead of sloping down. Besides the Lake area, you can go for a bike ride down to the airport way, on way to the Tibetan settlement where there is a nice little monastery, a school, and refugee jewelry and craft stalls. Be prepared to ride all the way uphill on return trip to Lake area. If yours is a mountain bike it is paddle able all the way back. But it is wise to take a rest halfway if you want to avoid suffering from cramps and weariness the following day, from the long ride.

Scooter or a motorbike

It is also possible to hire a scooter or a motorbike in Lakeside (from Rs 500 to 800 a day). You will have to buy the petrol yourself (Rs 125 per liter). It is not possible to reach Sarangkot or the World Peace Pagoda with gearless motorbike or scooter due to the steep road.
