The mountain adventure starts today with an early morning flight to Lukla. Lukla is the main gateway to all Everest region trekking adventures. This is a short and beautiful flight in a small plane that takes us to the Everest region. Once we land in Lukla airstrip, considered one of the most adventurous airports in the world, we prepare for the day and start trekking towards Phakding as our overnight destination for the day. The very first day of trekking introduces us with the charm of mountains and makes us curious about what is there to unfold.

Client Reviews about Budget Everest Base Camp Trek

Best experience on EBC trek!

 

I had a really good time on my EBC trek, my guide Arjun was very helpful, as he helped carry some of my things and told me exactly what was needed as we climbed up. He even paid for my lunches and dinner on the road, and I paid him back at the end of each day to make it easier for me. It was a tiring journey and quite cold at night, but I was very lucky with the weather being clear the whole time, so I had an amazing view of Everest. I highly recommend booking with Himalaya Heart Treks & Expeditions as they make everything easy and convenient, such as airport pickups and accommodation in mountains.
