PKR 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 Pokhara Airport.
What to Expect
A tiny, rustic building at Pokhara Airport (code: PKR) 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.
