Early morning next day, you would have a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. You should keep your pen- knifes, lighter, matchboxes and other related stuff in the bigger baggage than in your hand-bag to avoid any security breach and unnecessary delay. The planes are generally small for these flights but the journey is panoramic. You will have some time to see Lukla and enjoy its beauty. Your trekking in Nepal would begin after a 30 min halt at Lukla.

The walk from Lukla to Phakding is gradual and has few ups and downs on the way. You would have a superb view of Kusum-Kangru, while you are crossing the short suspension bridge on your way. After a short climb, you would reach the Ghat village and another one and a half hours of gradual walk brings you to Phakding village.

Trek to Everest Base camp usually starts from the Lukla airport which is one of the most extreme and adventurous airports in the world

DAY 03 : PHAKDING TO NAMCHE

Everest Base Camp Trek

From Phakding, after crossing the Dudh-koshi suspension bridge, the walk is easy and pleasant with short uphill and down-hill climb. You would be re-crossing the same river again. You would have a magnificient view of Thermasarkhu which is 6,608 meters from the village of Benkar. Now you would cross the long suspension bridge over the Bhote- Koshi River. This is a busy area and is full of trekkers and porters. After here you would finally arrive to the small river of Monjo, after a climb of 20 minutes from this area.

Monjo is situated below the magnificent peak of Thermasharkhu. Close to this you have the entrance to the Sagarmatha national park.

This is a short day. We sometimes take a day break at Namche for Acclimatisation , but if everyone in the group is doing well in terms of their SPo2 reading, we will not take the break day in Namche Bazaar and continue to KYANGJUMA which is just 2 hours of an easy walk from Namche.

The owner the property we regularly stay is super sweet and cool. She runs regular donations to nearby villagers, owns a small business in US , has a huge prayer hall which radiates some another level energy and provides the warmest vibe that you will take back with you even when you are back home from EBC. Her lodge name is called Amadablam view , for obvious reasons. Duh.
