Kathmandu-Lhasa direct bus service May 1

From the New Kerala website:

Kathmandu, March 27 : An agreement between Nepal and China to start direct bus services between Kathmandu and Lhasa, capital of Tibet, will be implemented from May 1, as per schedule.

A 14-member Chinese delegation led by Chang Jiang Jhang, director of Tibet's transport management department, arrived in Nepal Friday after completing an inspection of the nearly 900km highway connecting Kathmandu and Lhasa...

...The service will start with two buses each from Nepal and Tibet with the simplification of visa procedures for travellers.

Sajha Yatayat, Nepal's state-run bus service, will operate runs from Nepal while a private transport operator will be given the contract in Tibet, Nepal's state media reported.
