KATHMANDU, Nepal – Targeting the tech-rooter passengers and tourists, a local tourist bus service, Mountain Overland, has begun WiFi services in its buses en route from Pokhara to Kathmandu and Chitwan.

The company launched WiFi services in its buses this week, after testing the service on the route.
