Kathmandu’s (and Nepal’s) Tribhuvan: One of the World’s Most Hated Airports (!)
A plane is about to take off from Tribhuvan International Airport's runway.

CNNgo recently put Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan in a list of 10 “world’s most hated airports” along with JFK, LAX and Heathrow detailing correctly the shortcomings of Nepal’s only international airport. But the travel site also said correctly, at the end, this: Never mind. The city’s markets and surrounding mountains are lovely.

I agree with both the criticism of the airport as well as the praises for the city of Kathmandu. A few days ago clouds disappeared from above the green hills of Kathmandu valley providing us the stunning view of the mighty Himalayas that overlooked the airport. Fliers must have seen those snow-capped mountains from close and relished the view. That must have helped them to forget all the hassles that they might have gone through at the airport before boarding in the planes. Here are more photos and the detailed entry on the subject: Kathmandu’s (and Nepal’s) Tribhuvan: One of the World’s Most Hated Airports (!)
