Langtang Ri Trekking and Expedition

Arriving Kathmandu valley after a long flight is a daunting task as Kathmandu airport is the only international airport of Nepal where a multitude of people arrives either for arrival or for the departure. As it is not the first time if your plane hovers at the sky for 1 to 2 hours encircling Kathmandu valley before the landing at the airport due to traffic. As you land at Kathmandu international airport you face awkward situations of people rushing hither and thither in search of baggage. And see chaos and have to wait for the baggage among the crowd.

Upon arrival, you have to enter the immigration hall for the visas. As you enter the hall can see a long queue for visa approval. But recommend filling online visa form before the arrival that can be done 15 days before the arrival so that you don’t have to engage in the busy queue and waste the time on chaos immigration area on the tired and exhausting situation.

After successfully being able to come out from the terminal then you will be greeted by enthusiastic cab drivers swearing of giving the authentic price and excellent service. But, it will be better to use the meter and prepaid taxi service for safety or not to be cheated. Either it will be better to see the rate list of the taxi fare from the airport to several locations before jumping inside the cab though you are extremely tired due to long flight. And finally, you will be driven to Thamel, the heart of Kathmandu valley and touristic center occupied with well-facilitated hotel serving several varieties’ of cuisine from local food Dal Bhat to Chinese, Italian, continental and many more.
