Day 16-18: Gorakshep(5,140masl) to Namche(3,440masl) to Lukla(2,840masl)

18 Days Winter Self-Guided Solo Hike from Jiri to Mt. Everest Base Camp (5,364masl)
November 27 to December 15, 2015


After that 2 successful ascents and a 3 nights stay on an almost 5,200masl Gorakshep, I got colds and cloggy nose. My initial plan was to include Gokyo Peak that will passed-by on the glaciers and  the Chola Pass, 5,400masl high pass. I cancelled this side trip, could not resist the extreme coldness anymore and decided to go low as fast I can. I still managed to get on track and be on schedule just like other trekkers despite of not feeling well. The 5-days ascent I made starting from Lukla has been done for 3-days on descent. I booked my flight ticket to Kathmandu immediately upon my arrival to Lukla. One-way fare is $178 regardless if I booked one month or just a day before. 

REMINDER: Please take note that my trekking hours is of below average, I'm always lagging for around an hour to the next destination. Also, check-out bill in the morning day after includes lodging for 1 room, dinner and breakfast.
