Everest Base Camp Trek via Ramechhap – Manthali is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. It is located in the Khumbu region, home to some of the world’s highest peaks. The trek takes you through various unique landscapes and habitats that are worthwhile.

The friendly behavior and warm hospitality of those people with alluring smiles is a moment to remember for life.

The trip starts with a drive to Ramechhap from Kathmandu and then a flight to Lukla. The flight exposes you to the Himalayas mountain range, villages, rivers, and many beautiful sceneries.

You will land in Lukla and proceed to Namche Bazaar, the doorway to the Everest region. While advancing the trek, you come across various stops like Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep, and thus ultimately reach Everest Base Camp.

Moreover, you get to witness the breathtaking sunrise view while visiting Kalapatthar. Standing on the foot of the mighty Mt. Everest is a dream come true. It’s an experience that everyone should try at least once in their lifetime! After a glorious moment, the trek ends after getting back to Kathmandu on a flight from Lukla.

Everest Base Camp Trek via Ramechhap – Manthali is the most challenging trek. It involves a lot of walking, and it’s not for people who cannot walk for several days continuously. As a consequence, it can be hazardous if you’re not careful at higher elevations. However, if you’re in good physical shape, this is a great challenge!

    Useful Info

    Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trek Via Ramechhap

    The most appropriate time for the Everest Base Camp Trek Via Ramechhap is during the Spring and Autumn seasons. Due to favorable weather conditions, it is easier to trek during these months. Also, it is possible to trek during the winter and the monsoon season if you can bear challenges like extremely cold temperatures. However, we do not recommend trekking during the monsoon season due to the slippery, muddy chance of avalanches and heavy snowfall.

    Spring season is the popular season for Everest Base Camp Trek Via Ramechhap due to mild weather conditions. Most of the time, the skies remain clear and offer fantastic views during the trek. Mt. Everest (8,848 m), Mt. Cho oyu (8,201 m), Mt Makalu (8,481 m), and Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812 m) are some of the mountains seen clearly during the spring season. Also, it is the time for the Rhodendron to bloom in the forest, which makes the trails beautiful.

    Similar to the spring season, the autumn season is also a popular season for trekking. Favorable climate conditions during the day and night make tea houses and trail crowds during this season. We recommend booking the accommodation before the trek because all the teahouses and lodges are packed with travelers.

    Trekking in the winter is possible, but certain factors make the trek difficult. Trekkers should be well prepared during the winter season with proper gear and equipment. The weather is extremely cold, and heavy snowfall makes the visibility poor. Also, the weather condition is not favorable for the rescue operations.

    Lastly, the Everest Base Camp Trek Via Ramechhap during monsoon is not recommended. During this season, the trekking trails can be muddy and slippery, which can be a hassle. On the other hand, floods and landslides occur frequently due to heavy rainfall.

    Manthali to Lukla Flight Operation During Everest Base Camp Trek Via Ramechhap

    According to the airline’s authorities, a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla was diverted to Ramechhap airport because of heavy traffic and backups.

    The Lukla flight is the most well-known and crowded flight journey among the top STOL flights in Nepal. Due to increased traffic congestion and gridlock caused by these STOL planes, they have a significant impact on both international and domestic flights.

    Flight Book By Our Company For Trekkers

    The goal is to lessen and manage the overall traffic congestion, including construction-related delays. A Ramechhap to Lukla flight is substituted for the original Kathmandu to Lukla flight. And hence the Everest Base Camp Trek Via Ramechhap. 

    Kathmandu to Manthali

    Domestic airport Manthali is located in the Ramechhap district’s seat, about 132 kilometers to the east of Kathmandu.
