Nepal: โ‚ฌ386 from Paris with Air China

Mount Everest, Nepal

Star Alliance member Air China offers you a great bargain for flights to Kathmandu, Nepal. Flights from Paris are currently as low as โ‚ฌ386 with a long layover in Chengdu, China (5+ hours on the outbound, 6+ hours on the inbound trip). This fare includes board service as well as a checked bag up to 23 kg.

Layovers in Chengdu might be a bit long, but the travel times are convenient and the price is great.
