Lukla FLights, Trekking recommnendations

Jump to last reply

Heard the Lukla airport is closed for repair tearly this year, so flights seem to be more expensive as one has to take a helicopter in. Prices are being quoted at about $280 round-trip to me via the web--anyone know this for a fact? Are there less expensive routes into Lukla?

Also, if anyone's been on the Everest Base camp trek recently, would appreciate any tips/warnings. Am wondering if I could follow the trail myself or if I'll need to hire a guide.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Tom
