Day 3 – Phakding (2,600m) – Namche Bazaar (3,440m) – Sunday 20th of June

Today was difficult. Started early as usual, the girls were dancing away to Sam’s iPod speakers which he was carrying in his pockets.

The scenery along the ‘Milky River Valley’ which we are traversing was really very impressive. Very much what I expect Canada must look like. We had to cross five hanging bridges, one of which was about 150 metres high. Strangely enough, if you don’t look down, you really will be grand.

After lunch today, we entered withing the boundaries of Sagarmatha National Park. Once we’d crossed the final hanging bridge of the day, the gradient became very steep and remained so for the rest of the way up to Namche. The group split into two, with Darya and the boys at the front and the girls  behind

We arrived into Namche late in the day – it’s beautifully set into the side of the mountain and forms a semi-circle resembling a giant amphiteater looking down into the valley below.
