namche bazar
Namche Bazaar is a village and Village Development Committee (Namche) in Solukhumbu District in the Sagarmatha Zone of  Nepal in Eastern Development Region. It is located within the Khumbu region at 3,440 metres (11,286 ft) (the low point that is), populating the sides of a hill. Namche is the main trading center for the Khumbu region with many Nepalese officials, a police check, post and a bank.
On a hill overlooking Namche Bazaar is the Syangboche Airport (3,750m / 12,303 ft). Which is the highest airfield in Nepal. Namche Bazaar is popular with trekkers in the Khumbu region, especially for altitude acclimatization, and is the gateway to the high Himalaya. The town has a number of lodgings and stores catering to the needs of visitors as well as a number of internet caf├ęs, making it one of the few places in the region where trekkers can access the Internet.
On Saturday mornings, a weekly market is held in the center of the village while there may also be a daily Tibetan market where clothing and cheap Chinese consumer goods tend to be the main articles for sale.

Lukla Bazar- Solukhumbu District

Lukla, a town in the khumbu region of the Solukhumbu District  in the Sagarmatha Zone of eastern Nepal. Which is situated at 2,860 metres (9,383 ft) from the sea level, it is a popular place for visitors to the Himalayas near Mount Everest to arrive. Although Lukla means place with many goats and sheep, few are found in the area these days.
Lukla contains a small airport servicing the region, and a variety of shops and lodges catering to tourists and trekkers, providing western-style meals and trail supplies.
From Lukla, most trekkers will take two days to reach Namche Bazaar, both an interesting village and an altitude acclimatization stop for those continuing on
Lukla is served by the Tenzing-Hillary Airport. Weather permitting, twin-engined Dornier and Twin Otters make frequent daylight flights between Lukla and Kathmandu. Lukla Airport has a very short and steep airstrip, often compounded by hazardous weather, resulting in several fatal accidents. It has been called the most dangerous airport in the world
