25th April , 2012 - Kathmandu to Lukla and Trek to Phakding

The day we have been waiting for finally arrived, as THE was a big mountain was calling our name.  As we left the city of Kathmandu and our beautiful hotel, our adventure progressed to navigating the chaos of the airport and then on to a ride that was a Mr Toads wild ride in the mighty Himalayan mountain range. After a very heart racing landing into Lukla with amazement in our hearts we soaked up the visuals that we have only seen in pictures. We started our trek in Lukla at an elevation of 9200 feet after a great breakfast on to Phakding which is our destination for the night. It was surreal that we were in the pictures que Kumbu valley surrounded by mountains, green valley, and native villages in their daily rotine.
