Public buses ply the route between Jomsom and towns in the lower Kali Gandaki region, and onward to Pokhara. The route is long, bump, and on narrow dirt roads that hug the edge of the canyon. Normally it takes around 10 hours and the roads are often closed due to mudslides during the monsoon (June to August) season.
