Tribhuvan International Airport to city center

Kathmandu, Nepal

Kathmandu Airport overview

Kathmandu airport is only international airport in Nepal, which is gateway to Himalayan mountains. Airport is situated 6km east of Thamel - main turists area in Kathmandu.

If you won't order any transportation service before your arrival, We highly recomend to take a cab from airport. There is not city organized public transportation in Kathmandu. You are able to join one of local buses on the main street in front of Airport area, but its not for a first time traveler in Nepal.

Airport is divided to domestic flights terminal and international flights terminal within walking distance.

Public transport to city center of Kathmandu from Airport

There is no city organized public transportation service in the area of Kathmandu Valley. In a fact, there is an option besides cabs and private cars, to travel with not-organized local buses. But We can not recommend this option for travelers with luggages and also first time visitors in Nepal.


Taxi price

Taking taxi from Tribhuvan International Airport to Kathmandu city center will charge you around 500.00 NPR.
