On the last day of trekking, we headed directly from Namche to Lukla, not staying overnight in Phakding as on our way up.
The path was pretty much the same as before, so I won’t be able to tell you anything new. Except that I was already super tired, my feet hurt and it seemed like the longest 6h walk in my life. And then the little climb (compared to any pass) right before Lukla almost got me.
So we arrived to the lodge around 2pm. The sun was shining in my room and I sat in the window, enjoying warm sun rays warming me up and listening to music from a souvenir shop from below. It was a perfect chill!!! And I bought the music CD (some acoustic guitar from local artist with Arabic and modern elements, if I should somehow describe it), because I never want to forget how I felt at that moment, and music helps me to remember – happy, sad, relieved, tired, full of great memories, hoping to come back to Nepal soon.
I didn’t do much afterwards, just sat in the dining hall with Prakash🙂
My flight to Kathmandu was at 9:30 in the morning next day. We came to the airport at 9:10, did the check in and “security” in 10min and waited for our plane to arrive (which happend almost 1,5h later). And then we were back in the rush and warmth of Kathmandu.
And so, from the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank my guide Prakash. He made this trip unforgettable, with his care and passion, always ready to help. I had an amazing time in the mountains and he became more of a friend than a guide. I have to admit I wasn’t always the best version of myself (tired, stinky and cold) which sometimes affected my mood as well, so I hope he can forgive me for that🙏
So now I’m in Kathmandu for couple of days. My plan is to relax, get at least a 5h massage, do some sightseeing, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and basically just chiiiiill..
I already feel like I’m in heaven – double bed just for me, room on a 7th floor with own terrace with a nice view (although climbing up those 7 floors is almost like climbing a Kongma La), hot shower 24h😍😆 Perfection.
