Kathmandu is also a very good market place for travelers and trekkers. So I decided to roam around and bought few useful things for the trekking in very cold and challenging conditions. Basically you can get almost everything related to trekking.Kathmandu to PhapluAfter spending couple of comfortable days in Kathmandu I took the Jeep in sharing to Phaplu with the help of my Nepali friend. It is a 10 hours of scary road journey. I was praying in the entire journey since we had to go through the mountains by road. I think that is the most dangerous road journey I had. I reached Phaplu at around 4:00 pm and immediately started trekking after some snacks. I decided to trek for just couple of hours till sunset just to warm up because I knew that the coming 2-3 weeks will test my physical ability.So basically there are starting points for the EBC trek. Most famous and most preferred is Lukla (2860m) which has a small airport. Trekkers directly go to Lukla from Kathmandu by planes and then they start trekking from there.
