To Namche Bazar
Namche Bazar and Lukla are 13km apart from each other. To get to Namche Bazar in the evening the travelers need to move fast from Lukla airport. 13 km is a long distance to cover even more as it is a mountainous area so the travel time will be longer than the travel time of the plains.

For an average traveler, it would take an average time of about 6 to 7 hours to reach Namche Bazar from Lukla.

Namche Bazar is the biggest settlement in the mountain region of Nepal. The settlement is ridiculously huge for such a high region and quite fancy, to be honest. Namche Bazar also has the biggest market in the Khumbu region from devices to medicines that people might need might be available here.
The market is big but it is nowhere as close as the market of Kathmandu so it is best to buy the necessary equipment from Kathmandu as everything might not be available here. Despite everything Namche Bazar is a big settlement for the mountain region and has every kind of luxury for the right price. On day 5 the Everest view trekkers will reach here and spend the day at Namche Bazar.
