The Lukla airport is set into the side of a mountain and there is pretty much no descent. We would describe the ‘runway’ more as a driveway with a slight incline. 
If flying isn’t for you, it is also possible to catch a bus from Kathmandu to Jiri. From Jiri, it is an extra 7-day’s trek to Lukla. 
From Lukla, you will gradually ascend through the Khumbu Valley along the usual EBC trek route. After Namche Bazaar you will peel off the main EBC trek route towards Gokyo Lakes.
Description:

The Gokyo valley is an astonishing valley in the shadow of the Everest. It is a valley of turquoise glacial lakes. The trek route is an offbeat adventurous route and which sees less number of trekkers, so you can enjoy the surroundings with less disturbance. The route also passes dense rhododendron and oak forests and waterfalls which are frozen for most part of the year. During the acclimatization day, explore the Himalayan village, the local community, people, their lifestyle and culture. Their main occupation is yak herding besides tourism. Few crops are also grown here during the short cropping season.
