Gaurav was so fresh in morning at Phakding and according to him, the trek actually started. I was not that much fresh, the fact is I sleep late in night and I feel waking up in morning should get illegal someday :P (jokes apart, I am trying my best to wake up in mornings).
But to reach on time, we need to wake up as early as possible. And frankly, morning at such places have their own charm. Deep blue sky, snow-covered peaks, mystical landscape, breathing in fresh air relax you somehow. Phakding is beautiful. We started our trek around 8 am after taking a small breakfast.
So today is our day 2 and we are going from Phakding to Namche bazaar. Namche Bazaar is at the height of 3400 meters which means this trek we going to gain 800 meters.
As soon one start its trek from phakding, you going to face yet another Suspension bridge and from their I started counting how many suspension bridges will come for Everest base camp trek. It's the second one and frankly I was quite excited for it. There was no fear now.
The trek is good and one can notice many tea houses. Many are under-construction as well. All tea-house / lodges at phakding have fix price - Nepali Rs. 500/- however, dinner and breakfast is compulsory. If you do not want that then the price is Rs. 1500/- per room.
