We were limited to five days in the mountains. Big mistake - it's marvelous up there and spend as much time as possible. At least 10 days but go for a few weeks if you can. 









It's a long, steep climb grinding up to Namche Bazaar
Namche Bazaar, in a bowl close to 4000m up.


What a relief to get there after a long, long day from Lukla!


Namche market - quite a busy Saturday morning affair


We were warned to stay on the mountain side of yak trains at all times. Face downhill and you could end up at the bottom of a deep valley!
