April 3, 2016 - Fly to Lukla and Trek to Phakding

We reported on 1 st of April 2016, our flight was delayed by 4 hours due to bad weather. When we reached Katmandu air port the Peak Promotion Team was present to welcome us. They gave a warm welcome in the traditional way by offering garlands to each of us. For Two days we had free time to do all the preparations and shopping of necessary items in Thamel market. We started for Lukla today i.e. 03/04/2016 by chopper as many flights were cancelled due to bad weather. After having lunch at Lukla we started the trek towards Phakding along with our guide Guru and Gelu. During the walk of 2hrs and 45 mins we realized the importance of practice done on Parvati and Singhgad fort along with GGIM team.
On the first day route where ever we mentioned that we are from Giripremi team immediately we got very special treatment and we realized how well known are the Giripremei team on this route
