    MUST REMEMBER: The queue to the visa-on-arrival (V0A) payment and immigration gets really long. Once out of the plane, immediately go to the VOA queue and pay the USD 25 fee.

    There is a Priority Pass lounge here, tucked away upstairs above the Thai Airways lounge. Fast wifi, recliners to nap in, outdoor terrace, free food, free booze, and even a smoking lounge!

    The one good thing about this airport is: coming back from trekking this is where you'll have your first decent coffee

    If ever they will renovate I suggest them to keep the smell and culture of nepal as can be seen in their infrastructure bricks and their people

    Since this is a small airport, everything goes fast and smooth. But maybe it is about time to upgrade some infrastructure.

    Good step with the automated kiosks for visa on arrival, took an hour to pay for the visa in queue. Stuffy airport. Not much in duty free.

    One of the highest AirPort in the world on the Himalayas! You are always on the clouds while landing and watch the top of mountains over clouds! Small AirPort! 👍🏻

    Obtain a local SIM card at the NCell shop just before exiting the airport. 4G/3G data for cheap prices. You'll need your passport, and a photo (which they can take for you).

    Choose flights that arrive after 10pm for very quick visa process. I arrived at 1040pm and it took less than 2 minutes

    To make it quick when arriving, go first to pay your visa and only then come back a bit and fill the form. Then with both papers go to the immigration desk and you're one of the first to get out. :)

    One of the worst International Airports in the world (i have used it 6times) but it got its own charm, its like going 20years back in time. Very limited food options, No wifi
  • Nadav O.
    Nadav OfirOctober 2, 2015
    Departures: Free Wifi coverage starting of the foodcourt (right after check-in) and until the gates. Descent coffee in both places, and clean bathrooms, all in contrast to the arrivals zone.

    Cheap & awesome liquor at duty free. Try the himalayan aaila (rice whisky), the khukri xxx rum or the old durbar (scotch whisky made with himalayan grain spirit blended with himalayan spring water :-)

    Buy a coffee for free wifi. Don't go through security until the flight board says check-in or security check, as only a crowded, loud, hot hallway with little food options & no internet awaits you.

    crazy overcrowded; not enough facilities. If your flight is delayed, go through immigration but NOT through security; hang out at Himalayan Java. After Xray there's NOTHING: its like a bus station

    If you are EU/USA download visa form before arriving. In terminal go to the far end. This queue is overlooked. It say 'visa on arrival payment' or similar. And they do take plastic.

    Arrive at least 2 to 3h before departure. Entering the airport is already a challenge. Then you have to check-in (pretty ok) and then the worse: immigration. Takes forever!

    Get ready at least 25 USD and passport photo for your visa. They'll paste the visa on the spot when you arrive, and they'll chop the departure stamp when you leave.
