Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
After a short and very cold wait in the lovely Lukla Airport, our plane eventually took off. The flight took “the scenic route” back from Lukla, as air traffic control sent us in circles for a short while. Even so, we were able to safely land back in Kathmandu by late morning.
Our get away vehicle!
Once ensconced at the hotel, we enjoyed showers and then hit the streets for some shopping and more sightseeing. The bustle and noise of the city seemed a bit overwhelming after several weeks of peace and stillness in the mountains, but the diversions (cappuccinos, shopping and pizzas) provided a different sort of excitement for the team.
We gathered for our last supper this evening. Fun (but, sadly, no tongba) was had by all.
Bamboo and bright lights.
We want to thank our really great team and equally great local crew for making our 2021 Mera Peak climb a success.
