You can enjoy fantastic view wide range of Himalaya while flying. It is always recommended to reserve morning flight as day time is windy and flights may get delay. Take the left side seats to see the mountain vista. Many people combine Ama Dablam hike with Everest Base Camp Trek, Everest Three High Passes trek. For your information; Lukla flight is notorious for being delayed by few hours or canceled for a day or more rarely, it may happen even in top trekking season also as you know how climate change effecting our world. So, please allow a couple of spare night/s in Kathmandu following your trek if possible.
Regarding the difficulty of Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek, this trip is medium hard for the first time Nepal trekkers but if you are reasonably fit; this trek is not so hard for you. However, Wilderness Excursion suggests you; to hike gradually and follow rest days on the way up to get acclimatized and avoid AMS (Altitude Mountain Sickness) to enjoy more of this trip.

It depends on your route but mostly Mt Ama Dablam Camp Trek takes about 12 to 14 days for total trip as per your physical fitness, the time you have and as much time you would like to spend in the Himalaya. You do not want to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You land in Lukla at 2800m (9190 ft.) and hike to Base Camp at the 4570 meter, 17,500 fit. If you go too fast you will get altitude sickness which can be lethal. Hereafter it is always suggested to trek gently while going up.
Visitors can extend their Mount Ama Dablam Base Camp Tour trekking further up to Everest Base Camp or Chola Pass and going to charming valley of Gokyo and beautiful glacial lakes then trek down to Namche but trekking through Chola Pass will involve demanding walks in high altitude and it requires good stamina and moderately well shaped body.
