To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Pokhara Airport.
What to Expect
A tiny, rustic building at Pokhara Airport nominally serves as the terminal, handling domestic flights. A new terminal is currently under construction. Toilets are said to be western-style, but not clean. Plan ahead as we are unable to confirm whether eateries, shops, or WiFi are available.
Where to Sleep
We have no sleep-related reviews, but this airport seems to close nightly, from 6:00PM until 6:00AM. Have a backup plan if you’re planning to spend the night. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.
In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
