It is your dream, it is my dream and it is everybody’s dream to step one’s foot in Everest Region witnessing giant mountain peaks including the top of the world, Mt. Everest (8848m). Sometimes, people may wonder why Everest Region Trekking has become so much popular among the trekkers and adventure enthusiasts across the planet, but it true. People who have experienced this region trekking might have been searching such words to describe the beauty of this region but might not have succeeded to find such words in dictionary and encyclopedia. Now, of course, they are looking forward to coin such words which are apt to describe Everest Region Trekking.
If So, What are the striking attractions? A question arises. Simply, the attractions of Everest Region Trekking are:
Tenjing Hillary Airport ( Lukla Airport)
One of the most dangerous airports in the world!!! Yes it is. It is located at the rocky hill. Airport located at the elevation of 2840 m with runway 527 m. The airport is popular because Lukla is the place where most people start the climb to Everest Base Camp. There are daily flights between Lukla and Kathmandu during daylight hours in good weather. Although the flying distance is short, rain commonly occurs in Lukla while the sun is shining brightly in Kathmandu.
High winds, cloud cover, and changing visibility often mean flights can be delayed or the airport closed. The airport is contained within a chain link fence and patrolled by the Nepali Armed Pilice or civil Police around the clock. One cannot get escaped from surprise that how this airport is built on the inclined hill. The landscapes and the settlements in this inclined hill is unbelievable. This airport is considered to be one of the extreme airports in the world.
This is the starting point of Everest Region Trekking……….after a short and scenic flight of 35 minuted from Kathmandu.

The weather condition in Lukla gets fluctuated since it is located at the lap of mountain. So, flights from Lukla airport to Trivhuban airpot to Kathmandu or flights from Kathmandu gets interrupted and postponed even sometimes for several days. Thus, it is suggested to have some spare days like 2-3 days.
Yes, we can get hot shower throughout the trip in Everest Region but pay some extra charge like 200-300 Rupees per shower. Do not expect good accommodation and other facilities like Wi Fi, Hot Shower etc during Sept- November since the region is excessively crowded with thousands of trekkers.
We also see some of the trails are getting dirty and polluted due to unmanaged garbage in the region. Obviously, it is all of our responsibility. Isn’t it?
Everyone wants to see clean and serene Everest Region.
