What to Expect
Kathmandu to Lukla or vice versa flight is not stable. Once you enter the terminal of the domestic airport you will find the slogan of Yeti Airlines “Fly in Time”. However, they can’t assure you that you will fly in time. So, just pray that your flight will take place as per your printed flight schedule.

The Everest Base Camp Trek starts from Kathmandu. Firstly, you will commence with a sightseeing of the capital city of the country i.e. Kathmandu. You will tour the major UNESCO World Heritage Sites of the city which includes revered Hindu and Buddhist temples and monasteries. Similarly, it also includes the city’s oldest palace complex.

Then, you will experience a short beautiful flight to Lukla. The short flight to Lukla is adventurous and thrilling. In contrast to the hectic hustle and bustle of Kathmandu, Lukla offers a fresh Himalayan environment that will provide a tranquil environment. Upon your arrival in Lukla, you can enjoy the green rolling hills and the distant views of the mountains once you arrive in Lukla.
