Trekking in Nepal: Namche Bazaar to Dzonglha via Renjo La and Cho La. [05:37]
October 19 -- 24, 2012. Part Two of our trek in the Mt Everest Region of Nepal. We made our way from Namche Bazaar up the Bhote Koshi river valley to Thame, and then to Lungdhen were we took an acclimatization day. From there, we climbed the Renjo La pass (5360 m; 17585 ft) and were treated to stunning views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, and associated peaks. Then down to Gokyo Lake and village, and the next day a short hike over to Thangnag (Dragnag). On Oct 24, we made early start up the Cho La pass (5368 m; 17611 ft), and then over a small glacier and a steep hike down. We ended the day at Dzonglha, a very small village with a stunning view of the north face of Cholatse (6335 m; 20784 ft).
Trekking in Nepal: Lukla to Namche Bazaar [03:51]
October 16 -18, 2012. Part One of our trek in the Mt Everest Region of Nepal. We took an afternoon flight from Kathmandu to the village of Lukla, which has the only airport in the region. Landing at Lukla is a dramatic event....but that's another story. Our first day trekking took us through several villages on a level and slightly downhill trail to Phakding, where we spent the night. The next day we crossed the Dudh Kosi river four times and then made a steep climb up to the large and well-known village of Namche Bazaar. Our next day was a rest day, but quite memorable, thanks to a short hike to the ridge above town to get our first glimpse of 8000+ meter peaks of Everest and Lhotse, along with the lesser summits of Nuptse and Ama Dablam. (Note: for best viewing, set the quality to 720p or "Original".)

Chopper ride from Lukla ( most dangerous airport) [00:50]
Had to leave by a chopper from Lukla , Nepal as weather conditions were bad for a week . Lukla airport is also known as the Most dangerous airport in the world. It cost a bomb. Travellers to the Everest do be careful about this unexpected bombshell. My suggestion don't have connecting frights if ur travelling to Everest or get inputs on weather prior u start getting down to Lukla and book it at namche bazaar or online so u can save some $¥€ . The chopper ride is awesome though.
