We take a stunning early morning flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, ‘Gateway to the Everest region,’ perched at 2840m above the Dudh Koshi or ‘River of Milk’ –so named because of the pale milky appearance of the glacier melt-water. We are now in the region of the legendary Sherpas and you will notice the difference in the faces of the people you meet here and those from the Kathmandu valley. After meeting our assistant guides and porters in a local tea house, we trek north down towards Phakding (2610m) along a meandering trail which is lined with mani stone walls, made with hundreds of stone tablets and giant carved boulders, some brilliantly decorated with brightly-colored paints.

We then head back to our tea house for lunch and a rest in the afternoon. We can explore the markets (which sell everything a trekker could require!) or happily laze around in the sun. It is important to note that acclimatization is extremely important and that by using these acclimatization days correctly we greatly improve our chances of reaching our goal of Base Camp, which lies at an altitude of 5364m.
