Lukla Airport to Kathmandu

Monday April 2, 2007

Today is the end of my 16 day trek through the Himilayas with my guide, Ram. I go to the airport at 6:30 am and wait for the 4th Yeti airplane flight. The runway is very short and goes off the side of the mountain. Landing and taking off gets the adrenaline pumping. It is amazing to watch the planes land and take off in such a short period of time. A lot of people from Kathmandu trying to get to the Himilayas and Lukla is the starting point of all trekking through the Everest Trek. The weather was perfect the entire trip. Ram said he had never seen it be cloudless everyday since he has been guiding.
