Lukla Airport in Main Seasons
Lukla, being a major hub for mountaineering, is the busiest area in Nepal as well as all around the world. It has become a major tourist attraction since the time pioneers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay Sherpa step their foot in this spectacular region. Around 10000 trekkers, visitors and commoners explore this region in main seasons as well as in off-seasons.
The major seasons in which the area becomes swarming are autumn and spring. The months that fall in these seasons are February, March, April, September, October, and November. During this time, the sky remains clear providing a crystal-clear view of surrounding mountains, green forests, bush-bursting hills, wild animals and birds, and clouds dancing in the sky. In these seasons, huge numbers of tourists visit this area and make it jam-packed. Eventually, overcrowding makes this place much more exasperating but all those fade away along with the encounter with the natural milieu.
Sometimes, on the runway, slippery conditions can occur because of snow traces and high wind. But, as the climate of Lukla changes so often, clear space can be observed much sooner. Climate change is a nature call, so it cannot be determined fully but estimations can be done. Observing the past records and experiences, these six seasons (March, April, May, September, October, and November) are affirmed as the best seasons for Kathmandu Lukla Flight.
