About Ramechhap Airpot 

Ramechhap Airport, also known as Manthali Airport, is a domestic airport located in the Ramechhap District of Nepal. Situated in the eastern part of the country, approximately 132 kilometers east of Kathmandu.

It serves as a key gateway for travelers heading to the Everest region, particularly Lukla. The airport plays a crucial role in facilitating access to one of Nepal's most popular trekking destinations, Mount Everest Base Camp.

Ramechhap Airport is a relatively small and humble facility compared to the international Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. It primarily serves as an alternative to flying directly to Lukla from Kathmandu, especially during the high trekking season when Kathmandu's airport experiences frequent flight delays and cancellations due to adverse weather conditions.

Travelers often choose to take a short domestic flight from Tribhuvan International Airport to Ramechhap and then continue their journey to Lukla by road or helicopter. The airport's strategic location provides an essential transportation link to the Everest region, allowing trekkers to reach Lukla, the starting point for many treks to the Everest Base Camp, in a more reliable and efficient manner.

Travelers are greeted with picturesque views of the surrounding hills and mountains as they approach Ramechhap Airport, setting the stage for the adventure that awaits them in the Himalayas.

While Ramechhap Airport may not offer the same amenities and services as its larger counterparts, it fulfills a vital role in Nepal's tourism industry, ensuring that trekkers and climbers can access the stunning Khumbu region with relative ease.

The airport's importance lies not only in its functionality but also in its contribution to the overall experience of travelers embarking on a journey to witness the majestic beauty of Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks.
