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.

It’s a marvel in itself that these very comfortable lodges exist…there are still no roads in the Everest region, yet exist they do.
