|Our first dinner|
Well everyone is now in Kathmandu. We are all packed and ready for our flight to Lukla, early tomorrow.
In the last few days Nepal has seen exceptional snowfalls especially in the Western regions such as the Annapurna, Manang and Mustang. Tragically many people have been killed by avalanches and many less prepared trekkers by the extreme temperatures and blizzard conditions.
Thus far our journey has been unaffected, but it a real reminder of how powerful the Himalayan Range is.
Tonight we will be having our first meal together at one of the many great restaurants here. Kathmandu is a dynamic place and many changes are visible even since when I was last here in May. It remains a vibrant colourful place full of surprises.
Bye for now,
Tim Robertson and the Ama Dablam Team
