OMG I cannot describe the feeling of flying to Kalapatthar and seeing the glorious Mount Everest !!! The trip started off with the uncertainty of the weather but we finally departed a bit later! The pilot of our aircraft MR Prakash was brilliant!! After we left Kathmandu and ascended over the valley I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! The experience of seeing us fly into Lukla and the take off again and then the landing at Pheriche was just surreal.We were split into a group of two and got around 15-20 minutes at Pheriche ….the feeling of being in the lap of the Himalayan mountains was just magical Then we flew to Kalapattar our pilot pointed out everything to us …the peaks …the Kumbhu ice falls ..the camps…then we landed at Kalapatthar…the view of Everest ,Nuptse were incredible….we just were so happy!!!we missed out on landing at Everest hotel as it started snowing but we can’t complain…we flew back safely and happy ….pl do this it is a dream come true !!A huge thanks!!!
