Day three in Kathmandu, early morning departure to Lukla, the start of our EBC trek! This exciting flight will give you the first views of these grand peaks.

After landing on the famous Lukla runway at 9,300 feet above sea level, the excitement continues as we load the animals who are an important part of the team.
