Around The World Flight 38, Delhi to Kathmandu

One of the major highlights of the entire itinerary is this traversal of Nepal and a visit to Kathmandu, nestled in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas.

Kathmandu Airport is the first port of arrival into Nepal for many hardy climbers intent on climbing the formidable Mount Everest. Be sure to take care of the altitude when landing. The airport itself stands some 4500ft above sea level making this one of the highest elevation airports of our journey.

Tribhuvan International Airport (IATA: KTM, ICAO: VNKT, colloquially referred to as TIA) is an international airport located in Kathmandu, Bagmati Pradesh, Nepal. The airport is named after Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah, the former King of Nepal. It is operating with a tabletop runway,
one domestic and an international terminal. As a sole international airport, it connects Nepal to over 40 destinations in 17 countries.

The airport is considered as a starting point for Mount Everest, with several daily flights to Lukla. Several airlines also offer Everest sightseeing flights out of Kathmandu. (Source: Wikipedia)
