‘Flight’ to Lukla

Tuesday the 3rd,

All packed and weighed ready for our flight to
Lukla this morning, an early start for us all, getting up at 5am for breakfast at 5:30 and Asian Trekking to pick us up at 6!

Asian trekking picked us up fine loaded up kit and prepared for a bumpy journey to the airport. We arrived at the domestic terminal at Kathmandu airport shaken but in one piece. We carried on through check-in with our bags and barrels checked in with time to spare. We then sat down and waited for our flight.

After some time the man from Asian Trekking came over looking rather worried and informed us the flight was delayed due to bad weather and we had to be patient. After a long near 6 hour wait the man from Asian Trekking returned and told us the flight was cancelled due to the bad weather in Lukla.

He then consoled us by telling us our flight should leave the next morning without hassle.

The afternoon was spent discovering the city more, with some patrols heading off to the “Garden of Dreams” the, “Presidential Palace” – of which is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – and the rest of the city.

All in good spirits and looking forward to the rest of the trip!

Now praying for good weather!!!!!
