Expensive, waste of time, flight goes nowhere near Everest just cruises along Himalaya and turns round a long way from Everest! Old plane and a lot of hanging about.

Namaste, you can book through Buddha Air's official website. Yes, you can book directly on the website. Airport transfer from international to domestic is quite easy as the terminals are located in the same vicinity.
