Nepal Day Eighteen: Namche to Lukla*

Day 18: Namche to Lukla


  • Namche to Lukla wasn’t difficult, 6-hours walk
  • Stopped at Monjo to see Nisha (Nima) Sherpa at Yeti Mountain Home. She actually moved to work at Lukla branch but she was in Monjo that day because she took some kids to Khumjung for camping.
  • Stopped at the Phakding lodge for lunch. The girl wasn’t in, only her mother.
  • Met a Chinese group. One of them was a Tibetan who recommend Altitude Bar at Lukla was interesting. We didn’t go though.
  • Met an American family–David (father), Adam and Andrew–we had met along the way. The sons used to stay in Chiangmai for 2 years. The father seemed to like Phuket very much. The father recognised us and checked to confirm by asking what we did in Thailand. We gave the same answers we had on the trek. Right away, he was certain it was us who sang the Namaste song to them back then. HAHAHAA. We were playing MONOPOLY Millionaire Deal Card Game together after. The game was fun. We played the game till after 10PM.
  • PaSang said good night, but I found out in the morning he and his cousins/ friends went to the Altitude Bar we told him that the Tibetan guy mentioned.
  • The next morning while waiting for leaving Mera Lodge for a flight back down to Kathmandu, I saw a meteor among lots of stars in the sky!
