Lukla Flights are full, any best route to reach Lukla?
We have 19 full days in Nepal starting 12 March and want to do the EBC trek. It looks like the flights are full to and from Lukla. Can anyone recommend the best route driving to and from a start point from KTM.

Flights are not full, they just don’t show the available seats.
You rather go from Kathmandu to Phaplu by jeep and trek from their.
At the time of year when Kathmandu is quiet, you can get flights between Kathmandu and Lukla. However, during high season there are no flights between Kathmandu and Lukla, you have to fly between Lukla and somewhere else (I’ve forgotten the name), but it’s very close to Kathmandu and you can just get a bus from there. That said, it’s great taking the traditional route, starting from Jiri
Tickets are available but not online. Trust me
I’d bus to Jiri and walk in from there. It’s spectacular. And then just fly out from Lukla if you’re short on time
You can take car to Manthali Airport and Fly to Lukla and vice versa
KTM to Sellari by Jeep
Kathmandu to sellari by jeep then start hike to Everest Base Camp Trek ebc when you finished trip then fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla
