Kathmandu travel information

When to visit

Kathmandu has a mild climate for most of the year, with a summer monsoon season from June to September. It’s low season as the trekking routes are not passable and rain clouds hide the views. The best time to visit Kathmanduin in spring (March to May), as the weather is dry and warms up to around 20°C and many parts of the country are covered on Nepal’s bright pink national flower. Autumn (August to September) is the most popular time to visit with warm days and clear skies creating ideal conditions for adventures in the mountains. Temperatures range around 23°C to 26°C.

Arrival information

What is the main airport called?

Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) is an international airport located in Kathmandu, Bagmati, Nepal. Kathmandu Airport is located in the Kathmandu Valley, about 5 km from the city centre.

Arriving in Kathmandu

When your flight arrives in Kathmandu, you’ll be welcomed by the airport staff to get your trip off to the right start.      

Getting into Kathmandu from Kathmandu Airport

Getting into Kathmandu from the airport is easy with a range of transport options to the city. Choose from bus, taxi, hotel shuttle or car hire. Buses are located just outside the terminal building and are easy to identify with their green colour, the trip time takes around 20-30 minutes to town. Some hotels in the area provide a shuttle service to and from Kathmandu airport, so best to confirm with your hotel. Taxi is the quickest and comfortable option taking around 15 minutes. Taxis are located directly outside arrivals and it’s possible to prepay for your taxi and metered taxis are also available.

Getting around Kathmandu

With lots of traffic and crowded streets, Kathmandu can be a tricky place to navigate. The easiest ways to get around the historic centre is on foot or cycle rickshaws are a fascinating way to see the old city. It’s best to agree on a fare before you depart. For longer journeys, buses are available or shared rickshaws, though they can be crowded. Taxis are plentiful and a faster, more comfortable way to travel. Kathmandu also has a motorbike ride-hailing app, Tootle, which can be useful when trying to navigate the city traffic at busy times. However, you'll be safer in a taxi. Walking the city streets is an exciting way to see century old temples, narrow streets and statue filled courtyards.
