The other day I was just going through a blog on internet titled “Without Up and Downthere is no Nepal”. Literally, the team travelled almost cumulative 4.5 kilometers up and down in the course of approximately 30 kilometers, as they travelled from Phaplu to Phakding. In particular, walking down over stones and steps sliced out of rocks is strenuous as you are crushing your knees against body weight. It’s advisable to take intermittent breaks if you have planned for prolonged activity. Looking at the fact, the team has decided to spare a day Phakding and take rest. This will also give the opportunity for the team to share more details and lots of photos too! So keep following!
Phakding is situated in a quiet and tranquil environmentat an altitude of 2,601m (8,563 ft) with 27̊ 42’ 09” latitude and 88̊ 43’ 50” longitude.It is 3 hours walk from Lukla.
