Getting to Nepal

By Air

The Tribhuvan airport in Kathmandu is Nepal’s only international airport. Nepal Airlines, the only national carrier, operates two flights per week from London and one from Paris via Dubai. It connects  Europe via Frankfurt.

The other major airlines that serve Kathmandu are Indian Airlines, Thai International, Bangladesh Biman, China Southwest Airlines, Druk Air, Qatar Airways, PIA- Pakistan Airlines, Gulf Air, Sahara Ailrlines, Jet Air, and Cosmic Air.

Via Asia

You can travel to Kathmandu via Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore. There are daily flights to Kathmandu from Bangkok.

If you are in India, you can fly to Kathmandu from Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Bangalore and Varanasi.

There is the spectacular flight from Lhasa to Kathmandu on Saturdays, Tuesdays and Thursdays operated by China Airlines. You can also fly Druk Air from Paro in Bhutan, or take a flight from Dhaka, Bangladesh.

From Europe and Middle East

Qatar Airways and Gulf Air operates daily flights to Kathmandu from Doha and Dubai.

Pakistan International and Bangladesh Biman have one-airline service from Europe to Kathmandu.

From North America

You can fly to Nepal via India or alternatively via Bangkok or Hong Kong. RA's Osaka flight makes good connections with North American flights.

From Australia and New Zealand

Look for routes via Singapore, Hong Kong or Bangkok.

By Land

There are just eight entry points into Nepal by land open to foreigners, from which six are from India and two from Tibet.

Via India

The crossing points from India include Mahendranagar, Dhangadhi and Nepalgunj in the west, Sunauli, Birganj and Kakarbhitta in the east. Make sure to book your tickets through a reputed agency to avoid getting duped. Also bear in mind that everyone has to change buses at the border whether they book a through ticket or not, and that despite claims to the contrary, there are no tourist buses on either side of the border. You can board direct buses to the Nepal border from Delhi, Varanasi, Calcutta, Patna and Darjeeling. From the border, you can board Nepali buses to Kathmandu.

Via Tibet

You can cross the border into Nepal from Tibet via Kodari.

Leaving Nepal

Always, but always, reconfirm reservations, or chances are the airlines will cancel them. Take time before your trek or river rafting tour to reconfirm your flight out of Nepal.
