Phakding to Namche Bazaar hike is considered the toughest day of the EBC trek by many. First half is a constant up and down along the Dudh Koshi (milk river). The second half after lunch is a straight climb for over 3 hours. Murder!
The 13 km distance combined with over a 3000-foot elevation gain will be the most strenuous combination in this Trek. Happy to have that under our belt. The views speak for themselves. Shangri-La is all I could think of.
WOW! I can only imagine the thrill and agony…
It is a different world.
You capture the most amazing things with your pictures. I love the colors of the rooftops and the Rosie cheeks of the children. And of course your pictures of all the flowers are simply amazing. What an AMAZING adventure the two of you are on. I am jealous but one day I too will travel like you.
I hope you are enjoying drier weather!
Wow!! Just amazing!! The writing on the side of the mountain, are those painted on there or are they a canvas? Just so amazing (all of it!!)
They are Buddhist mantras for blessings.
