      Where should I go between my flights to Paro from Kathmandu?

      by Charliesangels Online Now Mar 31, 2014 at 3:51 AM

      I will be going to Paro in end April. My flight is from Hong Kong arriving to Kathmandu at 22:00, but then my next flight to Paro is the next day at 0925. It's approx 10 hours in between so I hesitate to book a hotel just for that, as well to pay the Nepal visa just for few hours.
      Would that be safe to stay in the airport overnight? Or I have the access to get in to the Kathmandu airport lounge, would they be opened until the next morning?

      Recommendations on hiring a porter guide

      by ilyathemuromets Online Now Jan 16, 2014 at 11:55 AM

      Hello everyone, my friend and I are planning a trip to do a 10 day ABC trek in mid April (if anyone is interested joining, let me know). After reading this forum and others looks like hiring a porter guide is the best option for us since we are interested in learning something about the country while doing the hike.

      Does anyone have any recommendation for a porter guide for ABC?

      Thanks in advance.

      Just found out that apart from Buddha and Yeti (about $215 rountrip for both), there is another airline flying KTM to Pokhara at a much cheaper rate (about $150). I cant seem to find any reviews for that airline.

      Anybody tried it?

      Can I book flight to Pokhara in the Kathmandu airport?

      by superkatol Online Now Dec 6, 2013 at 2:00 AM

      Hi VTers!
      I will arrive very late like 11PM, if I would like to go to Pokhara on the earliest next flight (which is around 7am), is there a flight ticketing office in the Kathmandu airport itself so I can book my ticket there? Do you think they are still open at around 11-ish PM?

      I don't feel comfortable sending my credit card details via email, as the Yeti Air and Buddha Air don't have online booking facility. Thus, I thought of booking my flight soon as I arrive in KTM.

      Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    • Should I book my hotel before I arrive in Kathmandu?

      by Ciaran87 Online Now Sep 19, 2013 at 6:06 AM

      I land in Kathmandu on the 4th October, should be flying to Lukla on the 6th so I need two nights in Kathmandu. I will have two days (hopefully) on my return from Lukla before I leave so I need two further nights three weeks later. Should I book the hotel before hand or can I just book on arrival? And do I need to book the hotel for my further two nights or can this be done before I leave for Lukla?
