About Manthali (Ramechhap) Airport
Manthali Airport is located in the Tamakoshi River Valley in Manthali, the capital of Ramechhap District at an altitude of 474 m. It is located 132 kms east of Kathmandu and it takes 4.5 hours to get there from Kathmandu by road.
It is a small town that doesn't see many visitors ordinarily. Hence, accommodation facilities available are limited and the service level is not very high. With the large number of trekkers who will come here to catch their flights, it is highly likely that you may not find accommodation in Manthali during the peak season of April- May.
Hence, those who have already issued the tickets in Summit Air to/from Kathmandu will be automatically reroute to Ramechhap/Lukla or v.v. sector. The date and tentative time of the flights will remain the same as per the tickets issued. However the passengers need to travel to Ramechhap to/from Kathmandu and the transportation will be arranged by the airlines for B2C only (online ticketed customers only get these facility by airlines).
