I would like to share this video back in 2011 when we are on our way to Everest View Hotel. It was the 3rd day of our Trekking Holiday in Nepal and still feel hyped with the adventure.
Before I continue with my 2nd part of the Khumbu Trekking Adventure, let me show you the video I took while landing at one of the most dangerous airports in the world, Lukla.
On our 3rd day in Nepal, we were scheduled to start our journey of an eight days Trek to Khumbu Region. It was about six in the morning when Steve, the owner of Shivapuri Heights Cottage drove us to Tribhuvan International Domestic Airport in Kathmandu to catch our flight to Tensing-Hillary Airport which is also popularly known as Lukla Airport.
After the sumptuous breakfast while overlooking Kathmandu Valley from the Shivapuri Heights Cottages terrace, we head out to see the city. Unfortunately, the driver is not available and so we decided to walk down the hill. It’s about past nine in the morning so the heat is not too bad and I thought that it would be a nice pre-trekking exercise and a preparation for the grueling one that will happen the next day when we fly in to Lukla (one of the most dangerous airport in the world).
I woke up about seven the next morning to my growling stomach, needed breakfast badly. I woke up my friend Lew, and told him I was starving; let’s go have breakfast on the patio. We walked up to the main house and there was a nicely laid out breakfast on the terrace, which had beautiful views of hills and the city below. We had plans to roam around Kathmandu for a day before we set out the next day for Lukla, which is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world! That adventure will be discussed in one of my future articles.
