9th April, 2014-Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding

We woke early in the morning to catch our flight to Lukla.  Even though I had heard the flight into Lukla was terrifying, it was actually very smooth and pleasant.  We had excellent visibility and the landing was quick although we did not get a good landing video:)

We then had to sort bags and found Bob had one missing bag.  Interesting since all four of our bags were on the same cart at the airport.  We waited in a lodge for a bit while Ngima Dorji Sherpa made calls to track down the missing bag.  Ngima made sure to locate the missing bag and we began our trek up the mountain to Phakding.  On the way we took tons of pictures of the many amazing sites!  After dropping our bags off in our room,  we headed up the hill for a short hike to see the local monastery.  After our monastery visit,  we headed back down the hill to Phakding for rest and dinner.

Excellent start to our trip ( And Bob's 2nd bag arrived safely!)
