Nepal's National Flag Carrier


An important recent development has been the servicing of Kathmandu by low cost carriers, including, FlyDubai, Air Arabia, Kingfisher, Jetspice, Arkefly and Jetlite.

If you wish to enter Nepal overland, there are 5 entry points with India and one with China (Tibet). From the border crossings with India one can easily reach Delhi, Varanasi, Kolkata, Agra, Darjeeling, Sikkim and Lucknow. On the Nepalese side there are plenty of buses servicing Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Nepal is a very traveller friendly country and you can purchase visas on arrival at all entry points. Alternatively, you can purchase a visa prior to your arrival at an Embassy of Nepal.


When to go?

Due to the huge range of landscapes, there is essentially never a bad time to visit Nepal in terms of weather, as it varies greatly across the country. Specifically though, September to November and March to May (Autumn and Spring respectively) bring the best weather all round and can be seen as the best time to visit any part of Nepal. Nepal has a monsoonal climate, with a two-season year. Dry season is from October to May, with the wet/monsoon season running from June to August.
