Phakding 2600 – Namche bazaar 3400
Namche bazaar! Heaven hidden among the mountains, a beautiful place. No real roads to this place, still a vivid city in the middle of nowhere with bars, shops and the internet. Shamed to admit that I took a hot shower at our hotel… So, we started this morning from Phakding and trekked the first 3 hours Nepalese flat, 40 meters up, 40 meters down, no elevation gained. But after lunch we started to climb for real, still a couple of bridges over the Milk river (quite airy!) and then up up up. Finally it started to feel like climbing, though the weather was still warm and the altitude only around 3000 m.
