23 April, 2013 - Fly to Lukla and Trek to Phakding

Up early, 4:30 and 5:30 Peak promotion staff picked us up on the hotel to go to airport and fly to Lukla. Altitude 2810m. It was the same disorder on the airport as in the traffic. The plane was a small one, very simple and we sat right outside cockpit. From there we could see captain handle his plane between Himalayas Mountains and once he read in newspaper at the same timeJ. The view was magnificent on the way and the captain landed the plane without problem on "the most spectacular airport" in the world. I was not afraid! I am surprised! It was more of a challenge to walk over a couple of narrow, swinging suspension bridges, on our first trekking day to Phakding. My oh my!!! I really concentrated on just looking forward. It was high! Tomorrow there be a couple of them even higher…/ Anita

To see Anita walk over the suspension bridge like a robot was real fun! But, she did it very well without complain. There we walked with expensive Trekking boots and we met heavy loaded porters in flip flop, sometimes they passed thru us real quick. Under our first day we already saw many magnificent views along the way.  Today's weather has been sunny but when we drank our tee after the days trek it started rain. / Bengt
