JKR Airport Overview
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Janakpur Airport (code: JKR).
What to Expect
A ramshackle little airport terminal and airstrip, served by commuter and military flights to and from Kathmandu.
Sleeping in Janakpur Airport
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 guide below or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
