On the day of October 28 ,2017 Nameste! Our big challenge day! 7am start to trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar, an altitude gain of 1000m in 6 hours following the Dudh Kosi (river) and crossing 5 increasingly spectacular rope bridges. We both found the trek stunning far beyond our hopes. The atmosphere and scenery was probably the best ever seen . There is a magic up here which i cant out into words. And we haven't seen the high peaks yet. The mules and jyokpo (cows) remain a menace, trying to nudge you off the trail, so you quickly lean to stay on the mountain side. Now safely resting in our 'luxurious' tea house where well stay for 2 days to acclimatize with some local day treks. Headaches, light headedness all part of it, but should quickly pass if we rest and don't go too high too soon. Time to eat now ready for another fun filled day tomorrow.
