11,000 ft or 3440 m

Lukla to Namche
altitude 3440 m or 11,000 feet

Today was a 6 hour hike, 10 miles, difficult at times. I have been very impressed by the porters on the trail. They carry upwards of 50 kg. and do not complain about the work. Never before have I ever felt so privileged. Their livelihood is dependent on tourism and carrying the weight of the West.
