Getting there and getting around Nepal

Flights: The only international airport in Nepal is Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. There are a handful of other airports throughout Nepal, but these are much smaller and offer only domestic flights. There are a few direct flights from the U.S., but these are quite expensive. Most itineraries require at least one stop, for example, in the Middle East, such as in Qatar or Abu Dhabi, or in China or Thailand. Many flight options also offer layovers in India, although Indian itineraries require a transit visa that must be procured before traveling.

Did you know ...

EARTH only uses professional science journalists and scientists to author our content?  In this era of fake news and click-bait, EARTH offers factual and researched journalism. But EARTH is a non-profit magazine, and at least 10 times more people read EARTH than pay for it. As advertising revenues across the media decline, we need your help to ensure that we can continue bringing you the reliable and well-written coverage of earth science you know and love. Our goal is not only to inform our readers, but to inform decision makers across the economic and political spectrum about the science of our planet. So, we need your help. By becoming a subscriber or making a tax-deductible contribution to support EARTH, you can fund our writers and help make sure the world knows about our planet.
