Flights to Lukla- Everest Base Camp Expeditions

Please be advised of a small necessary change in the itinerary for this year’s Everest Base Camp Expeditions.

On 27th February 2019 we had notification from Nepal of a complete schedule change of domestic flights going in and out of Kathmandu airport. Our International flights have not been affected. Flights to Lukla from Kathmandu have now all been moved (between April 1st 2019 to at least 30th July 2019) to fly in and out of Manthali Airport, Ramechhap instead of Kathmandu.

Far Frontiers Expeditions to Everest Base Camp are all affected.

On arrival into Kathmandu on international flights, groups will now be transferred to Ramechhap pre-arranged accommodation. This is a 5 hour private coach journey on main roads. The teams will then fly to Lukla early in the morning as normal and we will be using pre-arranged flights with Summit Air. In the instance of a flight delay on the outbound flight, groups will remain in Ramechhap until the next available flight.

When the flights return from Lukla into Ramechaap after their trek, teams will transfer back to Kathmandu, stopping enroute for lunch.

All affected groups will be contacted individually by Far Frontiers early next week to confirm their arrangements.
