How Can You Reach There?

To have a drink at the highest Irish pub in the world, you’ll have to make quite a lot of effort. It’s not going to come easy. After you reach Kathmandu, the capital for Nepal, you need to take a flight to Lukla, which is located in Khumbu. One of the most scary things about this particular airport is that if the pilot is not well trained, there is a risk of the plane going off the cliff. Only small aircrafts fly to this place, as the runway is not too long either. We are not trying to scare you, just stating facts.

After landing at Lukla, there is a two-day long trek that you need to take to reach the Sherpa Town’s Namche Bazaar. Because of the high altitude, and terrain you can only trek for 5-6 hours in a day, and it would be advised to not push that further.
