Lukla Overview

Lukla, the main base for trekkers and climbers to begin their assault towards Everest. This sizable little village sits on a ridge above the Dudh Kosi river. Many, many shops, restaurants, tea houses, and a few bars can be found along and off the main trail through the village. The only reason you will likely find yourself here is if you are trekking to EBC or climbing Everest itself.

Of course the most interesting aspect of Lukla may be the Tenzing-Hillary Airport by which most visitors arrive and depart. An experience in and of itself, this extremely short and angled airstrip is extremely active every morning as travelers arrive and depart while others offer their services as guides and porters for the trek up to EBC.
