Cheap flights to Nepal are in demand by adventure travellers and those seeking spiritual enlightenment. This mountainous country, situated between China and India, has a reputation for otherworldliness. It is the birthplace of Lord Buddha at Lumbini and the Hindu Lord Sita at Janakpur, home to a living goddess (or Kumari), warriors famed for their bravery (the Gurkhas) and, perhaps most famous of all, Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. It is also said to be the stomping ground of the abominable snowman (or yeti).

Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital and largest city, was, in the 1960s and 1970s, a must-visit destination for hippies seeking spiritual enlightenment. Today, it’s still a required stop on the backpacker trail, more sprawling and smoggier than it was 30 years ago. It’s still a wonderful and magical city and many visitors use it as a starting point for trekking holidays in the Himalayas.

The Kathmandu Valley alone boasts seven of Nepal’s eight World Cultural Heritage Sites: Durbar Squares of Hanuman Dhoka (Kathmandu), Patan and Bhaktapur, the Buddhist stupas of Swayambhu and Bauddhanath and the Hindu temples of Pashupati and Changu Narayan. Nepal is also home to the Natural World Heritage Sites of Everest National Park and Chitwan National Park.

The most popular treks are those to the Everest region but the Annapurna region in west-central Nepal and Langtang treks in central Nepal are also hugely popular, offering the experiences of a lifetime.

How long is the flight to Nepal from Australia?

Flight times can vary to Nepal from Australia depending on where a traveller gets on a flight and what city it is going to end up in. Those leaving Sydney to reach Kathmandu will find several fights that can be as quick as 15h 55m or as long as 29h 15m. Most passengers will land at Tribhuvan International Airport, the only international airport in the country. Another common place to travel is Pokhara, which can be reached out of Melbourne. This flight is a little longer with the quickest flights reaching the destination in 19h 25m and some of the longer flights taking 33h 05m.

Which cities offer direct flights to Nepal?

Unfortunately, there currently are no nonstop, direct flights from Australia into Nepal. However, there are many stopover options for visiting the major cities in Nepal. Some flights from Melbourne to Pokhara are offered by AirAsia X, Malindo Air, and Yeti Airlines. Travellers who are coming into Kathmandu from Sydney will have a selection of flights available from Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia X, and Malindo Air. Nepal flight deals are also available from Brisbane, Melbourne, Cairns, and Adelaide into Kathmandu.

What is the best way to travel around Nepal?

Many areas in Nepal, including Bharatpur, Lukla, Janakpur, Pokhara, Jomsom, and Simikot, are served by domestic flights. Nepal Airlines, Yeti Airlines, and Buddha Air are some of the most popular airlines. Travellers can also drive or hire a taxi in Nepal, but car hire is not provided in the country. Many tourist buses go through the country which make stops for tea and lunch. Metered taxis are common in Kathmandu, as are three-wheel scooter and rickshaws, which are often the less expensive option.

What are some things to do in Nepal?

Many travellers to Nepal take time to trek into the Himalayas or visit Phewa Lake to enjoy a boat trip. The oldest national park in the country, Chitwan National Park, is a place where travellers can see rhinos, tigers, crocodiles, and many bird species. In addition to that, Mouth Everest is in the area and can be climbed by those who want a bit of adventure. There are also great views of the mountain from domestic flights. The country has many festivals throughout the year like Holi, which is a spring festival, Tibetan New Year, and Dashain which lasts longer than any other festival.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Nepal?

People coming from Australia to Nepal by air will need to have a passport that is valid for at least six months. A visa is also required and may be obtained when reaching the airport. Keep in mind that this must be paid for in cash. A tourist visa allows you to conduct business for up to 30 days in Nepal. Different visas are different lengths from 15 to 30 and 90 days. Tourists can stay no longer than 150 days in Nepal over the course of a calendar year.

Nepal climate

Nepal has a range of climates – tropical forest, jungle, snowfields and glaciers. As in neighbouring India, the monsoon winds have a great influence on the weather. Late June to September is the rainy season and October to May the dry season. During the rainy season visitors can expect an average of two to three hours of sunshine each day. There’s also a good chance of flooding in parts of the country. The dry season is much more pleasant – warm weather and between six and nine hours of sunshine each day. Naturally, the higher you go, the colder it gets.

When is the best time to fly to Nepal?

Peak Season: 

The busiest times of the year – but also the best times – to search for cheap flights to Nepal are between February and May and late August to December. 

The main festivals of Dashain and Tihar occur during these months. Dashain, Nepal’s most important festival, commemorates the gods’ victory over demons. The celebrations are reminiscent of Christmas; homes are decorated, families get together and gifts are given. Tihar follows Dashain. This festival – worship of the Hindu Goddess of Fortune – lasts for five days and is all about celebrating one’s siblings and friends. In March, the festival of colours (Fagu Purnima or Holi) takes place. This Hindu festival is marked by the throwing of coloured water or coloured powder. 

Off Season: 

Mid-June to September is the low season in Nepal. It’s the monsoon season when rainfall is heavy and temperatures are high. Landslides, flooding and avalanches can occur during the monsoon season.

Getting around Nepal

If you’re trekking or seeing the sights of Kathmandu, you’ll be getting around on foot. Domestic airlines offer flights around Nepal, but to get the authentic Nepalese experience take the bus. There are micro buses in Kathmandu (and Tempos – three wheeler auto-rickshaws), local buses and tourist buses that travel between Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan, Lumbini-Bhairahawa and the border towns. Renting a car with a driver or renting a motorbike are also options.
