FAQ Nepal

Please check here for the most frequently asked questions about traveling to Nepal (FAQ Nepal)

How do I get to Nepal?

In order to fly directly to Nepal from your home country, Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu is the only international airport in Nepal. Thai Airways, Gulf Air, Qatar, Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Korean Air, Etihad Air, Silk Air, Air Arabia, Druk Air, Jet lite, Dragon Air, Air China and Cathay Pacific carry most of the foreign travelers to Kathmandu. If you buy tickets from any other airlines, you will probably connect with one of these airlines for the final leg of your flight. Alternatively, if you have valid visa, you can also travel to Nepal via India and Tibet (China).

When is the best time to visit Nepal?

October and November is considered the best time of the year. The main festivals of Dashain and Tihar (greatest Hindu festivals) fall during these months. The sky will remain clear and the temperature is pleasant. February-May are also months for travel, as you will see rhododendrons blooming in the mountains while you are on trek. December and mid-February will be snowy and cold in the mountains, still very good times to come.

What are my options to come to Nepal from India?

You can fly between Delhi and Kathmandu as there are many flights available in this sector. There are a number of overland entry points for travel by road and you could come by train to Ghorakpur, travelling the rest of the way by road (see below).

All foreign nationals, except Indian citizens, need visa to enter Nepal.

What do I need to get my visa?
