Note :

During busy trekking seasons (March, April, May, October, and November), there is increased air traffic at Kathmandu airport. To address this, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal made a change for all flights to Lukla. Now, instead of flying from Kathmandu, you need to travel by road to Manthali airport in Ramechhap district, which takes about 4 to 5 hours. From there, you can catch a flight to Lukla.

Please note that any new updates will be shared with you promptly. This change may affect your planned schedule. There are several reasons why Lukla flights can be delayed or cancelled, such as bad weather, traffic congestion at Kathmandu airport, runway management issues, and challenging terrain. If you’re planning to trek in the Everest region, it’s highly recommended to add an extra one or two days to your itinerary. This buffer time will be helpful in case of flight delays or cancellations, ensuring you can catch your international flight as planned.
