Getting around by air

There are numerous flights to Kathmandu (US$120, 25 minutes) all day, weather permitting, with Buddha Air, Yeti Airlines, Nepal Airlines and Simrik Airlines sharing the load. There are great Himalayan views if you sit on the right-hand side of the plane heading into Pokhara (or the left on the way to Kathmandu).

Simrik Airlines, Nepal Airlines and a division of Yeti Airlines called Tara Air have daily flights to Jomsom (US$111, 20 minutes). Nepal Airlines also flies to Manang (US$113, 25 minutes) on Friday.

All the airlines have offices near the airport and Mustang Chowk, but it’s often easier to use the services of one of the travel agents in Lakeside.
