Lukla to Namche bazaar distance

Namche bazaar

Lukla to Namche bazaar distance is 13.5 km 2 days hike

Lukla to Namche bazaar distance is 13.5 km only, though you need one night 2 days to reach Namche bazaar from Lukla, because of going to landing already 2800 altitude first day in the Lukla airport from Kathmandu.

When you are doing your trek in high-altitude areas, you should hike slowly and make sure that your body is familiar with the mountain altitude in order to acclimatize successfully. There is an option to descend down within a day from Namche to Lukla after reaching Everest base camp, but you may need to stop a night in Phagding from Lukla and travel the next day to Namche Bazaar to begin your trek.

Namche to Tengboche distance in one day is also possible, but there is no point in rushing in the high altitude area. Please take note that Namche Bazaar is at 2440 m altitude and it is not recommended that you climb more than 500 m per day above 2000 m altitude. You will want to keep a flexible itinerary, either 3 passes or just Everest base camp, whichever trek you choose. Before you head to any of the corners of the Everest region on your trek, we recommend one day of rest in Namche Bazaar.

Namche to Tengboche is a distance of 5.9 km and the height of Tengboche is 3860 m. Also, the distance from Tengboche to the next village is only 7 to 8 kilometers. During low altitudes, we can hike 15 to 20 km per day, but at high altitudes, it is completely different since the air is thin and the body does not receive enough oxygen. As such, whenever hiking at high altitudes, you should familiarize yourself with the natural air and environment of the area.

More time more relaxed

There will be a more relaxing time when you do a 2 night 3 day trip from Lukla to Namche, then you can arrange your luggage for a porter-guide in Lukla, and you will have the best time having breakfast in the cool air at some restaurant in Lukla, taking photos on the trails when you go hiking, enjoying the views of mountain peaks, wooden bridges, and the Dudh Koshi river.

Minimum days for Everest base camp

For the Everest base camp trek, you need to keep at least 11 to 12 days, and if you want to include Gokyo lake via the Chola pass then you need at least 14 to 15 days. In order to make the EBC trek more enjoyable, it is better to allow one or two extra days because the flight can be delayed from Lukla to Kathmandu due to bad weather at times.
