As the altitude rises, you’ll witness the snow-capped peaks peeking through the clouds that seemed to be adjacent to the flying Helicopter. Upon landing on Lukla, we begin trekking for a couple of hours to Phakding village (2,610m). Then next day we will ascend further ahead to the unofficial Sherpa capital town of Namche Bazaar (3,440m).
