With Everest being Everest, this is easily amongstĀ the top three most sought after treks in Nepal. You get to brag about how you reached the base of the highest mountain in the world, that you landed (and took off) from one of the most dangerous airports of the world (Lukla airport, its really not that dangerous) and that you’ve walked higher than the highest mountain in western Europe (5,643 m at Kala Patthar, the highest point in the trek vs. 4,810 m at the summit of Mont Blanc).
