It was ice outside our tent first time.  We started waiting our flight to come from Phaplu to Kathmandu.  Most of the flight went to Lukla as weather in Lukla was bad for a couple of days.  So, flights concentrated to lukla.

We were waiting and waiting and waiting.  Finally, it arrived.  We left Phaplu at 3:20 and we had a perfect view of Himalayas including Mt. Everest.

Arriving in Kathmandu, we checked in Yak & Yeti. Much to our surprised, it was a huge blue sign greeting us, we could not miss it.
