Cheap flights to Nepal
An age-old sabbatical dream the world over includes trekking in Nepal, so if it’s something that’s been on your bucket list, listen up. Nepal is a little landlocked country in Southern Asia famous for its Mount Everest peak and bordered by the controversial country of Tibet. This nation has so much diverse landscape that it’s impossible to describe in words, but you will find Nepal is actually cut up into elevation zones, which include the level plains of Outer Terai, the foothills of Churia Hills, the expansive valleys of Inner Terai and the steep slopes of Mahabharat Range, to name a few. As you can well see, it’s a trekker's paradise. From riding an elephant in Chitwan National Park to discovering the birthplace of the Buddha in Lumbini, Nepal is a travel destination with more to offer than you could ever imagine, and Student Flights can get you there with cheap flights and a range of holiday package offerings.
Nepal has one international airport located in its capital city, Kathmandu, called Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM). The airport accepts flights from a variety of Asian, European and Middle Eastern airlines and indirectly from Australia. The airport sits in the Kathmandu valley and now has a dedicated international terminal. Buses or taxis are popular choices for ground transportation into the city centre. Your Student Flights representative will be able to advise you on the availability of hotel transfers and private transfers.
From the east coast of Australia, convenient flight paths to Nepal connect through Malaysia, China and Hong Kong.

Nepal Holiday Packages

Ask a Student Flights travel consultant to help you plan the best Nepal holiday package possible with cheap flights, accommodation options and transfers.
Nepal has a monsoonal climate and rugged terrain, but don’t let it put you off as the country is also one of the most breathtakingly beautiful in the world and you won’t be disappointed about anything you see and do here. A trip to the Annapurna Circuit will allow you to absorb the ridiculously beautiful scenery of Poon Hill with icy waterfalls, treacherous mountains and patchwork valleys all on offer in this space. An hour outside Kathmandu you will find Patan where you will come face to face with the locals in crowded street markets and bustling rooftop cafes and restaurants. Kathmandu itself is a big drawcard with crumbling architecture and a laidback buzz thanks in part to the excited trekkers you will find here from every corner of the world.
