Key tips on flights to Kathmandu

Nepal’s fabled capital has a history stretching back 2 millennia. Once a busy trading post on the Silk Route, Kathmandu remains an important commercial hub. Yet beneath the modern city’s gleaming surface, its ancient roots continue to exert a strong influence. From the hushed reverence of Swayambhunath’s Buddhist temples to the eye-popping magnificence of Narayanhiti Palace, flights to Kathmandu will transport you to a different world the moment you touch down at Tribhuvan International Airport.

Which are the best months for cheap flights to Kathmandu?

Prices for flights to Kathmandu from the UK don’t tend to fluctuate very much from season to season, so the best way to find a bargain is to shop around, book well in advance and keep your travel dates as flexible as possible. Prices rise slightly in late summer/autumn, when the tropical climate is at its most agreeable, and drop again in January through March. Avoid the monsoon season of June to August if you’re planning to visit the mountains, but if you’re basing yourself in the city this can be a good time to pick up cheap tickets to Kathmandu and benefit from fewer crowds.

What’s the best way to fly to Kathmandu from the UK?

Many international airlines offer routes from the UK to Kathmandu via their home hubs – for example, Etihad from London Heathrow and Manchester via Abu Dhabi, Oman Air from Heathrow via Muscat, or Emirates from Gatwick via Dubai. Alternative routes out of Heathrow include Jet Airways via Mumbai or New Delhi, Malaysia Airlines via Kuala Lumpur, or Qatar Airways via Doha. Turkish Airlines offer a seasonal service via Istanbul from Heathrow, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh. Shop around to compare the best transfer times, or break your journey and enjoy a restful night’s sleep or an extra day of sightseeing.

Getting from the airport to the city centre

Tribhuvan International Airport is situated around 4 miles from the centre of Kathmandu. Once you reach the arrivals gate you should book and pre-pay your taxi ride direct from the terminal to your destination. The airport has an information counter for the Nepal Tourism Board where you can enquire about public transport options within the city itself – you can also book hotel rooms here if you haven’t already fixed up your accommodation in advance.

A walk through the centuries

The best way to discover the many sides of Kathmandu is on foot. Absorb the sacred aura of the Pashupatinath Hindu temple from the banks of the Bagmati River. Wander round Rani Pokhari pond, one of the city’s most iconic landmarks, to see its famous elephant statue. Gasp at the priceless archaeological treasures housed in the National Museum of Nepal and the colourful displays of butterflies and plants on show in the Natural History Museum. Let your hair down in the bohemian backpacker hangout of Thamel or take a step into the past in Asan’s atmospheric marketplace, the busiest and most colourful market in Kathmandu.
