Useful info

A scenic flight in Lukla :
Everest Base Camp Trek Journey starts from the Kathmandu flight. The starting phase attraction is a flight in a tiny strip. Maybe the first time trekkers in Nepal who see 14 to 18 seat airplane. The seats are not comfortable and the airplane is very small because Lukla airport is very small and the airport very small with 24 degrees running way. So landing the plane is very difficult. Lukla flying is very adventure activities in Nepal. The only way to Everest Base camp trek in 14 days is flight because there is no other transp[ortationsystems. From the flight, you can see the panoramic Himalayan ranges of the Khumbu region. This airport also called Tenzing Norgay Hillary airport from the name of Sir Edmund Percival Hillary
Tenzing Norgay Sherpa climbs for the first time in Everest 1953AD. The parking of the airport only for 4 airplanes. so it's the first highlights of Everest Base Camp Trek.
