Sunday 1st July-
We have success at 6.20am, after waiting for 4 days, we boarded the plane and head over the mountains to Lukla. I wasn't scared this time due to sheer desperation of getting into the mountains!
As we neared Lukla we could see the runway, the plane swerved through the tight mountainous valleys which jutted out in a zigzag style. As we lined up, the plane slowed to the specific speed and lowered, it continued to drop and the precision was fascinating as we almost glided onto the strip before hitting the brakes hard. Within 7minutes the plane has emptied and deposited it's goods and was headed down the 30 degree runway and meandered through the mountains back to Kathmandu.
