Kathmandu - Lukla - Kathmandu flights scheduled from April to June 2019 are subject to possible re-routing to/from the Ramechhap airport due to the anticipated runway maintenance time in Kathmandu airport scheduled between 22:00 pm to 08:00 am. In the case of re-routing, we will drive to Ramechhap in the early morning at around 3:00 am and then take a flight to Lukla at around 8:00 am.
Alternatively, helicopter arrangements can be made on 5 people sharing basis with the addition of USD 500 for one way flight per person to change your airplane flights to the helicopter. We will try to coordinate and form groups at the airport for this arrangement, but we cannot guarantee it. The drive to Ramechhap and flight to Lukla is almost always guaranteed unless the flight is canceled due to bad weather conditions.
Travelers are suggested to advise us on the preferred alternatives for the flights to/from Lukla affected due to possible delays or disruptions.
