we're not going to have an article for that airport
== Get in==
===From Nepal===
Fly to [[Lukla Airport]] from Kathmandu. There are several Airlines operating dozens of flights everyday. Among them Tara Air and Agni Air are generally considered the most reliable company plying the route. Sita Air also operates two flights every morning from Kathmandu Domestic Airport to Lukla at 7AM and 8:20AM. The flight takes around 25 minutes. During the summer rainy season, there may be substantial delays of flights, even a wait of one week is not unheard of. For the return journey, the flights leave Lukla at 7:40AM and 9AM. Helicopter Charter service is also available on demand and mostly used for rescue operation.
Alternatives are to fly to [[Phaplu]] airport, 2-3 trekking days south of Lukla, or to walk in from [[Jiri]], which is 5-7 trekking days west of Lukla. These alternatives take more time and therefore are less popular, but are very peaceful and pleasant - and much safer than flying into Lukla.
Just after the village of Monju, there is check point for entering the [[Sagarmatha National Park]]. You will need to show your passport and pay a 3,000 Rs entry fee.
