What happens next when you reach Lukla?
The trek officially begins on Day 1, and the hiking begins once you arrive and your gear has been unloaded and sorted.
A three- or four-hour hike from Lukla to Phakding is your first introduction to trekking. You might wonder why you decided to spend your first night at Phakding when it is already around noon.
After starting in Kathmandu at 1,400 meters and ending in Lukla at 2,846 meters, if you keep walking, you’ll reach 3,440 meters, which is too much for our bodies to handle in one day. It is recommended that you go to bed early and get a good night’s sleep because you will also have gotten up very early that morning.
