United – $923: Newark – Kathmandu, Nepal. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

United has a good fare to Kathmandu that connects in Hong Kong to Dragonair’s Kathmandu service. On the outbound, there is a long layover in Hong Kong — for some that’s a bad thing, for others, visiting another city is a great idea. If you can take advantage, enjoy.
