What time of day is cheapest to fly to Kathmandu?

Kathmandu flights can be made cheaper if you choose a flight in the evening. Booking a flight in the afternoon will likely mean higher prices.

How long is the flight to Kathmandu?

Flights to Kathmandu, Nepal, take different lengths of time depending on your departure city in New Zealand. For example, if you were to depart from the north of the country, in Auckland, then you could expect your journey time to be around 18h 20m in total. From further south in the country, in a city such as Wellington, you could expect your journey to take slightly longer, at roughly 20h 20m, whereas a flight from Christchurch would get you to your destination in about 18h 20m. These flights tend to take the best part of a day, as there is the requirement of at least one transfer along the way.

Are there direct flights to Kathmandu?

Unfortunately, you are not able to fly directly from New Zealand to Kathmandu Airport (KTM), Kathmandu. That being said there are still many great Kathmandu flight deals that you can find. For instance, if you are flying from Auckland Airport (AKL), then you can reach your destination indirectly, with one required stop. This layover is most likely to be at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL). If you were to fly from Christchurch Airport (CHC), then you would normally be required to stop at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN), whereas flights from Wellington Airport (WLG) normally need a layover at Christchurch Airport and Changi Airport before continuing to Kathmandu.

How do you get from Kathmandu Airport to the city centre?

You can reach the centre of Kathmandu with ease from Kathmandu Airport. You could opt to get a taxi from the front of the airport, which tends to take around 15min in total. Alternatively, you can book a journey through a ride-sharing app, which might be cheaper and take a similar time. For those that want more flexibility on their journey to the city centre, you can get a car hire from the airport as well. Should your luggage not be too heavy, then there is also the possibility to walk from the airport to downtown, generally taking just over 1h.

What are some things to do in Kathmandu?

Exploring Kathmandu is great fun and, with there being so much to do, it is a good idea to plan your trip before you arrive. For instance, you could start by heading to Boudhanath Stupa, which is one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the world. Next up, check out Swayambhunath Temple, a Buddhist chaitya that was built over 2,000 years ago. Then get to know the neighbourhood of Thamel, which is one of the most diverse parts of the city. Next on your itinerary should be Garden of Dreams, or Garden of Six Seasons, a neoclassical garden that was built over 100 years ago. Then you can get away from it all at Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park, which is formed of dense, lush greenery and home to many species of wildlife.

Do I need a passport or visa to visit Kathmandu?

New Zealand citizens need to ensure they have a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond their arrival date in Nepal. You will need a visa too, but this can be obtained upon arrival for a 90-day period.

What airport do you fly into for flights to Kathmandu?

Kathmandu Tribhuvan (KTM), located 4.1 km from the city centre, is the airport you fly into when you book flights to Kathmandu.
