The day starts at Kathmandu at 3 in the afternoon from where we take a minibus in which we will travel the 135 kilometers that separate us from Ramechhap airport in 4 hours long on mountain roads, damaged by rains in some Trams and no traffic in these early hours of the day.
Arrived at the small aerodrome, a plane will take us to Lukla in about 20 minutes, enjoying the spectacular images that we observe through the windows.
Arrived "integers" after the 14 seconds that the landing on the short Lukla court runs and all the preparation of the "backpacks" and backpacks start the walk.
It is a walk that allows us to have a first contact with the environment we will have in the coming days: many people walking, carriers and rows of animals loaded with all kinds of merchandise, stupas, prayer flags, grinders, mantras Buddhist rocks and temples; green mountains, small villages and agricultural crops, a whole world of vivid colors: Sagarmatha National Park (Sagaramatha Rastriya Nikunja), an area protected in the Himalayas of eastern Nepal that is dominated by Mount Everest.
This beautiful region of Khumbu along the Dudh Kosi river valley opens before us and embraces us.
We stop lunch at the Everest Summit Lodge and Chaurikharka VDC 6, Thadokoski.
Sitting on its terrace and taking a "lemon tea" we can see the slim silhouette of Kusum Kanguru that with its 6,367 m rises above the clouds.
Both the service and the food we ask for are quite good.
At the end of the stage we stayed at Pahkding Lodge - 5, Solukhumbu, where we have two-bed rooms and a hot shower. We do not have Wi-Fi and battery charging is free.
