On reaching Lukla Airport, you will be introduced to other trekking members awaiting your arrival and this is followed by breakfast at the lodge. Here, the luggage is prepared for the Porters. Shortly after this, a walk towards Bhaisekharka begins through the stone paved trails where you make your way through plenty of prayer rocks while still enjoying the flourishing village of Lukla. Here you can capture some of the most beautiful rural scenes on the entire trek. This first and short hike is specifically designed for the purpose of acclimatization.

They provided 8 days ABC tour for us with superb service, excellent guides and affordable price.

Himal, our guide, and his crew are knowledgeable in their work and fun to be with. They make sure you are not bored. Food and accommodation is more what you expect in an hiking adventure. Providing comforters in the mountains is sure way beyond expectation.

We will be back for EBC Adventure Tour. :)
