Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla.

It is one of the last days of the trip and so, all you would do is walk on steep descending terrain with rocky slopes to add to the displeasure. By now, you have conquered multiple tough terrains, but walking with caution is very important as tired legs often lose a step on a downward slope. As you get to the suspension bridge over Dudh Koshi, the land becomes flatter and the chill eases out from the wind. It’s quite a brilliant sight to watch the change in the surrounding ambiance of plain lands with rhododendron and pine forests blended with the snow-covered peaks looming in the background - and is one of the savoring delights of this journey.

Moreover, the trail passes through the Sherpa villages where you will get to see the rich religious believers of the locals there. A line of prayer flags and prayer stones will be around for a long-long time. By the time we reach Lukla where we will spend the night, a massive feeling of accomplishment and happiness will win over your emotions.
