Hi

There are no buses to the airport from Thamel. I'm not sure where the nearest place to get a bus is, New Bus Park on Kantipath perhaps. I don't know the times either. I would take a taxi.

Buses are available till 7 or 7 30 only

So after 9 pm

Taxi will be the only option :(

If you wanna take a local bus

You can first go to old Buspark (2 minutes from ratnapark) then catch a bus to airport

I would not recommend taking a bus at night with your luggage even for a day because it is not handy and takes a long time in the public bus so I would rather Taxi.

Thanks

Last week took a taxi in rush hour (Friday evening) from Thamel to the airport. I think in rush hour NPR 500 is a fair price. For non rush hour, NPR 400 is fine. Would not recommend taking a bus with luggage to the airport (even if there was one).

Hi,

There are not any direct bus from Kathmandu airport to Thamel. However if you come by walking out if Airport you can find the bus to Old Buspark/New Buspark and from there again you can catch the bus to Thamel during the day time but as your arris time it is rarely possible to catch the bus but whole going back to airport by 18 is still possible if you are fine with your luggage! Happy holiday, Gokarna

No direct buses from thamel to the airport. Would recommend taking a taxi. If you want comfortable ride and also want to avoid wasting time bargaining for the fare , you can book online at www.simrika.com. You can call them as well if you have any questions.

Agreed Willem. I think bus is the least desired option for transportation from Thamel to the airport. Cabs or airport drop off services from any travels and tours company are definitely better choices.

Maybe because buses are very cheap and frequent (to some places at least) or that a ride on a local bus is an experience, who knows really, it's personal choice, but luggage on a local bus can be a pain.

If you are really into taking bus, go to pipalbot( northen edge of Thamel) and catch a long, large bus called SAJHA yatayat. It will take youbtoairport within an hour. But if you are leaving too late in the leaving, you won't get that after 7 pm.
