Very important information for domestic flight to and from Lukla
Lukla flights will be operated from Ramechhap (Manthali) Airport from spring (April 1 to May 31, 2024) and autumn (October 1 to November 30, 2024) to avoid air traffic jams at Kathmandu Airport.
In this case, you need 1 buffer day to manage all transfers from Manthali airport (or we adjust the program on day 2 so that you have a guided site visit in Kathmandu and transfer to Mulkot, in the afternoon). We would suggest you drive to Mulkot, 3 hours away from Kathmandu and spend a night at a hotel, and then the next morning an hour’s drive brings you to Manthali Airport to catch a flight to Lukla. On your return, you can fly to Manthali Airport and return to Kathmandu on the same day.

How difficult is the Everest base camp 14 days trek?
