Mount Everest, the Earth’s tallest, stands on the eastern side of Nepal. Even if you do not plan on trekking all the day to the summit, you’re assured of seeing incredible views of Everest, Lhotse and the other jagged peaks of this breathtaking region.
If you’re up for the hike, go on a trek to Everest Base Camp (EBC). The quickest way to get there is to fly to Lukla Airport (LUA), high on the Himalayas. From Lukla, it usually takes around 8 days to trek to the base camp. And, four days to get back down. The easier way to see breathtaking views of the Himalayas is to go on a mountain flight from Kathmandu that can get a close enough view of Mt. Everest and other supertall peaks in the region.
