Well, the weather in the mountains is notoriously fickle, and today was no exception. Rainstorms over Kathmandu last night were of biblical proportions, and this morning at 4:30 AM when we left things were still not looking great, but clouds can lift any time, so we headed to the airport in hopes of flying to Lukla where the trek begins. This is just a 30 minute flight, but it saves days of driving and walking on inhospitable terrain. Sadly, the clouds were just too heavy over the mountains, and so we have to try again tomorrow.
No worries, this gives us a chance to see a bit more of Kathmandu, including the Boudhanath Stupa.

Great team, great guides, great support staff… great expedition!
