Tips for First-Time Travellers on Cheap Flights to Kathmandu
Apply for your visa at least a month in advance
Australians are required to have a visa before arriving into Nepal’s Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM). To apply for the visa, you can either visit the Consulate General of Nepal in Melbourne or send your documents by post. Once the visa has been issued, you have six months to use it and can remain in Nepal for up to 150 days.
Spend or exchange your Nepalese rupees before flying home
It’s actually against the law to take Nepalese money out of Nepal. After your flights to Kathmandu, try not to withdraw more money than you will spend. But if you do have excess cash, you can exchange it back to dollars at the end of your trip at Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM).
Obtain a TIMS card if you’ll be visiting national parks
Short for Trekkers Information Management System, a TIMS card allows access to all of Nepal’s hikes when you have return flights to Kathmandu. You can purchase a TIMS card from many trekking companies in Kathmandu for a fee of 1,000 rupees ($12.80 AUD) if you’re hiking with a tour, or 2,000 rupees ($25.60 AUD) if you’ll be hiking independently.
Try the local cuisine
After arriving on your return flights to Kathmandu, make it your mission to try as many local dishes as possible. Some popular ones for travellers with airfare to Kathmandu to try include dal bhat, momos, sel roti, chatamari, yomari, and juju dhau.
Top Experiences for Visitors in Nepal on Flights to Kathmandu
Hike to the Everest Base Camp
One of the main reasons people book tickets to Kathmandu is to see Mount Everest in person. For an unforgettable experience, book onto a group trek to the Everest Base Camp. While the mountain itself is only suitable for seasoned climbers, the hike up to Base Camp is not too challenging. The hike must be done slowly to avoid altitude sickness, so set aside about 14 days from your trip if you’d like to make the journey to Everest Base Camp. If you don’t have the time, there are also plenty of viewpoints within easy reach of the city where you can see Mount Everest after your flights to Kathmandu land you in Nepal.
