South Asia’s “Tallest” Skywalk Tower Opens in Kathmandu, Find Ticket costs

The popular Sky Walk tower has opened in Kathmandu today (Friday, June 30, 2023). Stretching a massive 78-meter, the tower built in Kamaladi lets visitors walk on glass panels and enjoy a birds-eye view of the city. Wonders Nepal has built the milestone “view tower” in the nation’s capital.

The construction for the tower had begun as early as 2078 Mangsir, but the Covid-19 pandemic delayed its operation, as per the company Managing Director Sohan Shrestha.

The tower is built on a land of over 13 ropani 4 ana. There is a plan to add bungee jumping in the near future.

Shrestha added that while Skywalk is becoming a norm across cities in many developed countries, Nepal was able to start it ahead of the neighboring country India. He continued, “There is also an amphitheater for domestic tourists, and it requires no ticket. You only have to pay for the skywalk.”

Skywalk Tower Kathmandu capacity and safety

The Skywalk Tower Kathmandu allows 500 people aboard at a time. However, the company plans to let in only 250 to 300 people in the initial phase. The tower uses 33 mm steel which is a British standard, Shrestha states. Stressing safety, he assures,  “There is no doubt about safety, even the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) and Tourism Department have given permission only after repeated inspections.”

The local government is also planning on using it as a tourist destination by adding gardens, restaurants, cafes, etc.

Operating from June 30 Friday onwards, the Sky Walk in Kathmandu will be open for the public from 8 am to 8 pm. Visitors can use one of the 2 elevators to reach the 18th floor and then reach the 22nd floor to observe the outside view. “It’s not just a view tower where you can go to a high place and look outside, it’s a pure skywalk, from where you can walk on glass with the surrounding view, it feels exciting,” Shrestha relishes.
