Transportation facilitates the movement of people and goods to the location of services and facilities. Its synergies create jobs, commercial opportunities, and industrial hubs. Nepal’s transportation sector is greatly in need of development. But its geographical location vests the nation with potential and provides opportunities. At first glance, the nation’s potential is not evident. Nepal is a land-locked country. Its nearest outlet to the sea, Kolkata, India, is more than a thousand km away. Because of the nation’s often difficult terrain, road transport and aviation are the most popular of very few modes of transportation, the others include ropeways and one railroad4 . However, currently ropeways are developing as tourist attraction rather than means for transportation.
