Lukla has grown rapidly with the introduction of its airstrip, which has made the Everest region accessible to many people, not just mountaineers.

Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla, NepalOnce a tiny farming community, Lukla is now a large trekkers town, with numerous accommodation options (most fairly simple), many shops; selling everything from batteries and soap to yak hair gloves and knock-off North Face jackets, and even a couple of internet cafes.
