Yes. USD 144.68 includes transportation as well. Besides, you also get HoneyGuide credit worth USD 5 per ticket. You can use it to book lodges and guides from HoneyGuide’s system.
The vehicle will be either a car, jeep, or a hiace/microvan depending on the number of people traveling that day.
From Kathmandu to Ramechhap: The vehicle will leave from Employees Provident Fund Building, Thamel in Kathmandu and drop you at Ramechhap Airport. The general departure time from Kathmandu is 2 am (can be an hour ahead in case of earliest flight). You are requested to arrive 15 minutes before the departure time.
From Ramechhap to Kathmandu: The vehicle will depart at around 10 am (or later depending on when you land) and drop you off at Employees Provident Fund Building in Thamel. The driver contacts will be communicated to you a day ahead via WhatsApp. You are advised to be in touch once you reach Lukla.
No. The vehicle departure location is in the most central point in Thamel (which should be more than 10 minutes walk from any hotels in and around Thamel). Alternatively, you can ask your hotel to drop you off at the pickup location.
You will receive transportation confirmation in the same email with the flight tickets. However, the details like driver’s contact and vehicle number will be sent to you a day before your flight. The driver will have your details, and you can simply show them your flight tickets.
While USD 180 is the standard fare, if you buy flights directly from HoneyGuide, the price is USD 179. On the other hand, if you buy from your hotel or one of the travel agents in Thamel, you are looking to pay USD 185-200. They will justify this inflated prices by saying they have a ‘man’ at the airport who will make sure that you get the earliest flight possible. We will leave it to you to decide the truth value of such claims. :)
25 minutes. Lukla is 140 kilometers from Kathmandu as the crow flies. Make sure to book the earliest flight you can get. As the day progresses, the weather in the mountains gets unstable which increases the chance of flight cancellations. This will mainly be an issue during the October peak season.
Simply sit on the mountainside when you board. :) Since there are no seat numbers in the flight to Lukla, you can sit anywhere. This means you need the first person off the bus which takes you to the plane. And you will have to make sure to sit on the left side of the plane when going to Lukla from Kathmandu to see the beautiful mountains. We will leave it to you to guess which side you need to sit on when flying from Lukla to Kathmandu.
