On my departure I realised the full horror of CGK. There are virtually no seats, leaving passengers to sit around on the floor, & on their baggage. - Adam C.

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Janakpur Airport.

What to Expect

  • A ramshackle little airport terminal and airstrip, served by commuter and military flights to and from Kathmandu.

Where to Sleep

  • There are a couple of benches inside of this tiny airport terminal, but their proximity to the airport’s toilets make this an unpleasantly “fragrant” option for sleeping. If weather permits and you feel safe doing so, you can camp on airport property. Have a sleeping bag or travel mat and blanket handy for added warmth and comfort!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
