How to Getting There & Away
Start the Everest base camp trek in October, the fast way of getting from Kathmandu to the Everest region is to fly to the small mountain airstrip at Lukla. It’s important to leave buffer days in your trip itinerary in case of delays leaving Lukla. Although conditions are generally favorable in November for flights to leave on time from either direction, don’t risk missing an international flight.
The alternative way, if you have more time on your hands, you could take the Pioneers Route from Jiri to Lukla. It’s called this because it was the trail that early western mountaineers took to access the Everest region before the Lukla airport was built. Times come and never wait for us, now we can take jeep transportation from Kathmandu to Kharikhola but this service is not available every month in a year. In enough time frame condition, you can take also a flight from Kathmandu to Phaplu and trek through the Solukhumbu region from there. Few trekkers these days take this trail, meaning you’re unlikely to see many other trekkers until joining the main trail in Lukla/Pakding.
