This is the trek that climbers all over the world dream of completing. Although you are not scaling Mount Everest, you face challenging and unfavourable climbing conditions.

Flight to Lukla...Trust me on this one - The flight to Lukla is in itself an epic adventure...Its a 16 seater plane and ut takes half of an hour to Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. You get to see a brilliant view of the Himalayas during the flight and an adventure was awaiting before even starting to trek...the landing on the runway...so what's adventurous about it you might think...well the runway is just about 400 metres to the end of the cliff from where starts a deep gorge and then surrounded by the Himalayan mountains (don't forget Lukla is situated at an altitude of approx 9380 feet) ...after the safe landing we all cheered, clapped and whistled and said special thanks for the pilots...for an adventure before the adventure!!
