Yesterday we were lucky with the weather we’re able to fly in a helicopter to Lukla early in the morning to begin our trek. After having a second breakfast in Lukla we started our journey up the Khumbu valley but the first day to Phakding we actually lose elevation! Phakding is at 8,700ft roughly and a relatively short hike from Lukla. Today we left Ohakding after breakfast and hiked up to Namche which is at 11,309ft. We arrived just in time for lunch and have enjoyed a relaxing afternoon here getting use to our new elevation. It is great to be back in the Khumbu valley visiting with friends and fellow guides along the way. Tomorrow we will do a traditional acclimatization hike up to a lodge above Namche for views of the big peaks and some tea before heading back down to our lodge for lunch and a restful afternoon. We are doing great and having fun! Thanks for following along!
