Your Daypack:

In addition to the duffel bag, it is essential that you have your own daypack with a waterproof cover.

The equipment we Provide:

Besides the complimentary equipment, WITHOUT ANY EXTRA COST, we provide you with PrimaLoft wind stopper jackets, a Warm Down Sleeping Bag with liners, a Walking Stick if required, and Yak-Track (mini crampons where required).

Drinking Water Supply:

In our commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible trekking practices, we wholeheartedly discourage the use of single-use mineral water bottles along the trekking route. To minimize plastic waste and protect the pristine Himalayan environment, our dedicated staff ensures a constant supply of safe, boiled drinking water throughout your journey. We kindly request that you carry reusable water bottles and rehydration bladder to stay well-hydrated. Together, we can make a positive impact on the delicate ecosystem of the Annapurna Circuit.

Tipping is a gesture of appreciation, a heartfelt way to express gratitude for the incredible journey you've embarked upon and the dedication of the remarkable individuals who have been your guiding stars throughout your trek. The practice of tipping, at 10% of the trip cost, is a tradition that allows you to give back, acknowledging the extraordinary efforts of your guides, porters, and the entire team who make your adventure possible. It is a way to honor their dedication, hard work, and the stories they've shared around the campfire, deepening the bonds formed in the heart of the mountains.

Detail Information on Flying to Lukla from Different Airports

Nepal Aviation Authority (NAA) has recently introduced new rules regarding Lukla flights. These rules aim to enhance the safety and efficiency of air travel to and from the Lukla airport, which is known for its challenging terrain and weather conditions.

The choice of airport for accessing Lukla is primarily based on different seasons. Manthali is used as an alternative to Lukla during peak seasons when Lukla flights are often disrupted due to weather and congestion, while Kathmandu remains the preferred choice during the off-season for its convenience and more reliable flight schedules. 

Trekkers and climbers need to be prepared for potential flight delays and cancellations regardless of the airport they use, as weather conditions in the Everest region can be unpredictable.

1. Lukla Airport (Tenzing-Hillary Airport):

  • High Altitude and Short Runway: Lukla Airport is situated at a high altitude of approximately 2,845 meters (9,334 feet) and has one of the shortest commercial runways in the world, just 1,729 feet long. This combination of high altitude and a short runway makes it a challenging airport for both takeoff and landing.
  • Weather Variability: The weather in the Everest region, especially around Lukla, is highly unpredictable, with frequent fog, cloud cover, and high winds. These conditions can lead to frequent flight delays and cancellations.
  • Limited Infrastructure: Lukla Airport has limited infrastructure, including just one small terminal building and a single runway. This can result in congestion during peak trekking seasons when numerous trekkers and climbers are trying to get to Lukla. 

2. Manthali Airport (Ramechhap Airport):

  • Alternative During Peak Season: Manthali Airport, located in Ramechhap, is often used as an alternative to Lukla during the peak trekking seasons (spring and autumn). The advantage is that it is less congested, and flights are generally more reliable.
  • Distance from Kathmandu: Manthali Airport is approximately a 4-5 hour drive from Kathmandu. Trekkers are transported by road to Manthali from Kathmandu, and then they take a relatively short flight to Lukla. This helps in alleviating some of the pressure on Lukla Airport.
  • Reduced Weather Impact: The weather in Manthali is usually more stable than Lukla during peak seasons, making it a preferred alternative when flights from Kathmandu to Lukla are frequently disrupted.

3. Kathmandu Airport:

  • Alternative During Off-Season: During the off-peak trekking seasons (summer and winter), flights to Lukla from Kathmandu are relatively more reliable due to better weather conditions. In this case, it's more practical to fly directly from Kathmandu to Lukla.
  • Convenience: Flying from Kathmandu to Lukla is more convenient in terms of time and transportation costs during the off-season when the number of trekkers is significantly lower.

Weight Limitation while Flying to Lukla

The weight limitation for Lukla flights is typically quite strict due to the short runway and high altitude of Lukla Airport, which makes it challenging for aircraft to take off and land. The weight restrictions are in place to ensure the safety of the flight. The specific weight limitations is 15kg or 33 Pounds:

  1. Baggage Allowance: Passengers are usually allowed a specific weight limit for their checked baggage, typically between 10 kg to 15 kg (22 to 33 pounds) per person..
  2. Hand Luggage: In addition to checked baggage, passengers are typically allowed a small amount of hand luggage, which is usually limited to around 5 kg (11 pounds). This hand luggage should be small and fit under the seat in front of you.
  3. Combined Weight: So the total combined weight of the luggage is not to exceed over 15/16 kg / 33/35 pounds
  4. Excess Baggage: If you exceed the weight limitations, you may be required to pay extra fees for excess baggage or leave some items behind. The charges for excess baggage can vary with airlines you choose.

Traveling light is strongly recommended when flying to Lukla. Given the weight limitations and potential flight disruptions due to weather conditions, it's best to pack only the essentials and keep your baggage within the specified limits to avoid any inconveniences or additional costs.

Lukla Flight Delays And Cancellations

Flight delays and cancellations to and from Lukla Airport are not uncommon and are often due to a combination of factors related to the airport's unique location, weather conditions, and the limitations of the aircraft used for these flights. 

1. Weather Conditions:

  • Unpredictable Weather: Lukla Airport, is highly vulnerable to rapidly changing weather conditions. The airport's mountainous terrain means it's often shrouded in fog, cloud cover, and receives high winds, making flying conditions challenging.
  • Low Visibility: Low visibility due to fog or cloud cover can lead to flight delays or cancellations, as pilots require clear visibility to navigate the treacherous mountainous terrain.

2. Limited Instrumentation:

  • Lukla Airport lacks advanced navigation and landing systems. The absence of instrument landing systems and radar technology means flights often rely on visual flight rules (VFR), which require good weather conditions to operate safely.

3. Airport Congestion:

  • During peak trekking seasons, Lukla Airport experiences congestion as numerous trekkers, climbers, and supplies try to access the region. The limited infrastructure and parking space can lead to delays.

4. Safety Considerations:

  • Safety is a top priority for airlines operating in this region. If weather conditions are unfavorable or if there are safety concerns, airlines may choose to delay or cancel flights to ensure the well-being of passengers and crew.

5. Limited Window for Flights:

  • Lukla flights typically operate in the early morning when the weather is relatively stable. This limited window means there's less flexibility to reschedule flights if conditions deteriorate.

6. Seasonal Variations:

  • Flight disruptions can vary with the seasons. Peak trekking seasons (spring and autumn) are more susceptible to delays due to higher passenger volumes and less favorable weather patterns. Off-peak seasons (summer and winter) may see fewer disruptions.

Given these challenges, trekkers and travelers to the Everest region should be prepared for the possibility of flight delays and cancellations.

    NOTE: However, Nepal is experiencing extended periods of monsoon every year that may make September still cloudy resulting in flight delays and cancellations. And trekkers in most Annapurna destinations encountered leeches till early October which is unusual. So, it's advisable to be well-prepared for such conditions.

    Winter Season:

    • Feasibility During Winter:

     The winter season in Nepal is from December to February. Winter comes with cold temperatures and occasional snowfall, especially at higher altitudes. While it is possible to trek during the winter to EBC but it requires proper gear, experience, and preparation for cold weather conditions
