There are many internal airlines flying to towns and cities all over Nepal, as well as more remote mountain areas. Up to 50 flights a day at the height of season flies to and from Lukla, the start point for treks to the Everest region. This airport, at 2,600m has a short but steep runway that makes for exciting landings and take offs. There are several daily flights to towns like Pokhara, Nepalgunj, Birjunj and other towns. Flights also go to more remote hilltop airfields that serve many of the trekking areas such as Jomsom for the Mustang area.
Road travel in Nepal is generally slow, as the roads are narrow, road surfaces are generally poor and there is the risk of landslides and other problems that sometimes interrupt smooth travel. However, the scenery and experience of travelling in Nepal by road is an adventure in itself, not to be missed.
Daily mountain flights from Kathmandu can take you to see the wonderful panorama of the Everest area.
