We drive to Kathmandu airport with private vehicle early in the morning. The flight time is already given to you by the travel company and you will drive to the airport accordingly. The representative will be guiding you all the way to the airport and will be staying with you till you board on the flight.

There will be maximum 6 people excluding the pilot in the flight. We leave Kathmandu and head to the north initially. We take a turn and fly to the east over magnificent landscapes and breathtaking mountain views on the left. After 2-30 minutes of scenic flight, we land at Lukla airport. This landing at Lukla airport is to fill the fuel. We spend 15-20 minutes here and fly to Kalapatthar or Everest Base Camp. Landing at two places: Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar is not possible. We have to choose one of the them depending on the weather. Actually, majority of the people love to capture the views from Kalapatthar, so they prefer landing at Kalapatthar to Everest Base Camp. We spend maximum 30 minutes for witnessing breathtaking mountain panorama including Mt. Everest because we, sometimes, have threat of altitude sickness above 5000m.
