Thanks to an extensive domestic air network, getting around Nepal is fast, easy and safe. If walking up and down hillsides or sitting in a bus for hours is not your idea of fun, dont despair you can take to the skies!
There are 44 airports in the country, including all-weather, seasonal and STOL (short take-off and landing) types. The airplanes flying in Nepal are specially selected for performance in mountainous environments. Happy landing!
