a view from flight Lukla
6th April, 2014 - Fly to Lukla and Trek to Phakding

We caught our first glimpse of the Himalaya during our smooth flight to Lukla, huge white shark tooth peaks towering above the clouds.  The runway appeared through the cockpit window, steep angled just above the edge of a cliff and we landed like a rock skipping over an icy lake.  Perfect landing!  Hard to express the feeling of joy we felt stepping out and shouldering our packs taking deep draughts of fresh mountain air at last as we started along that rocky pathway, passing heavy laden porters and yak trains, saying Namaste to the friendly locals we met along the way.  Passing through villages interacting with curious children, admiring the stonework in homes, fresh gardens, spinning prayer wheels and marveling at Buddhist writings on huge rock outcrops along the way and crossing our first suspension bridges down to a glacial river to our destination today here at the Sunrise lodge in Phakding.
