    Stop At: Phakding, Phakding, Khumbu, Sagarmatha Zone, Eastern Region
    Hiking to Phakding usually is the first day of hiking in the Himalayas for many trekkers. It is a great introduction to the Himalayan mountains. You’ll hike beneath massive mountains, near and across a river (many times), and through pastures and small villages. There’s not much better hiking in the world.

    After you’ve hiked for roughly two hours from Lukla, you’ll reach Phakding. This small village is a good stopping point since it lies close to the midway point between Lukla and Namche Bazaar. It’s a good ‘first day’ of trekking, especially if you live close to sea level back at home. Phakding’s elevation is a good balance between Kathmandu (4,600 ft.) and the higher elevations of the upper mountain.
