30th March , 2012 - Challenging Day

Today we trekked from Phadking to Namche. This is the difficult part of the trek. The terrain was steep and uneven. The walk took us 8 hours. On our way, we crossed six different bridges- the highest being 60 m in height. From the initial altitude of 2640 m at Phakding, we scaled more than 800m to reach Namche (3400 m). This day has been challenging though we are faring well so far.
