Gokyo Trek: Elias & Team’s Path to Phakding

Namaste from Phakding, We made it in! But... what a day! The weather on the mountains grounded all airplanes, and after a six-hour wait, with the news that there were people backed up from previous days' weather delays, and with the bad forecast ahead, we decided to make a small sacrifice and hire a private helicopter, which can fly below the cloud deck, and safely fly to Lukla. A little bit of a late start brought us to late lunch rather than breakfast at the 2800-meter high Himalayan village that serves as the start point to arguably the most famous trek on Earth. But, hey... we were in the Himalaya! We then enjoyed a short late afternoon hike through the low villages of the Khumbu until our arrival to our lodge in Phakding. The journey is on, and we're heading upwards! RMI Guide Elias de Andres Martos
