November 5, 2012 - Phakding to Namche Bazaar

Today we started our trekking from Phakding at 2623 m in nice weather. We were not alone along the trek, sometimes we ended up in traffic jam especially over the bridges. The highest bridge, Larja Bridge, was 200 meters above the river. 

Today we got the first view of Mount Everest, it was spectacular.  The climb up to Namche Bazar at 3440 m was the first challenging so far.

After a nice dinner at Khumbu Lodge are we all tired but in good shape. 

At Khumbu Lodge we met Tommy Gustafsson, the Swedish man who was one of the persons who started the project Saving Mount Everest, and two other Swedish guys who was working with the project. We also met Pemba Sherpa from Peak Promotion who has climbed Everest several times.
