Everest Base Camp Trek Flies to Kathmandu

Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

We woke up early today and hopped on one of the first flights to Kathmandu. It was hazy, but the flight was smooth. The team particularly enjoyed the exciting take-off from the short runway in Lukla.

While we are happy to be safely back in the big city, we will miss the peace and simplicity of life in the Khumbu.

We spent the afternoon relaxing and getting cleaned up and then gathered for a celebration dinner at Mezze, one of the trendier eateries near our hotel.

Tomorrow, the team members are going to spend some free time in Kathmandu before flying back home to you the following day.

This will be the last Cybercast for the Khumbu Kowboys. It’s been a great trip with a great group of people. Thanks for following us!
