Night bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara or HetaudaI am arriving in Kathmandu airport at 4.30pm, March 21 (thursday)
and my destination is Pokhara. Can I catch a night bus from somewhere at around 6pm, or is it too late/dangerous to travel at that time?
Also, is it worth visiting Hetauda and then going on to Pokhara?
Alternatively, sleep somewhere and take the Greenline Bus the next morning?

2I'd not take a night bus to Pokhara even if it exists. Too dangerous so not worth risking it to save half a day.
Pay a bit extra with Greenline Bus for higher service standard. My hotel booked me on a bus which has absolutely no tread left on one or two of its tires. And you could smell gas on the back seat. The driver was professional and the trip was a nonevent, but not worth saving a few bucks in my view.
