For the forthcoming Autumn 2019 season flights to Lukla will NOT be from Kathmandu. This will adversely affect the Everest Base Camp Trek and other Everest Treks including Luxury Everest treks. We have been advised by the Nepal Civil Aviation Authority that all flights to Lukla will instead be from Manthali Airport. This is BAD NEWS for anyone intending to trek to Everest Base Camp

At 5360 metres (17, 585 feet) Gokyo Ri is one of the classic view points in Nepal to see Everest. As well as a more distant Makalu. Throw in Lhotse and there's three 8,000 metre giants. Not bad eh? I guess the thing is how do you get there? More importantly perhaps, what will you see?
