Rescue helicopter everest
8th April , 2013 - Manjo

We started out from Tengboche this morning at 08.00 and this time it was much warmer than the last time we were here.  We have descended 1000 m today from start until reaching Monjo at 17.00.  While descending steeply down towards the river we enjoyed the blooming rhododendron small blue iris flowers and many butterflies. Spring has arrived at this lower altitude.  In descending and ascending we have crossed at least 3 suspension bridges while following the river. In Kyangjuma we stopped to rest our legs and from the terrass the view was fantastic. While resting a rescue helicopter landed just above us. Our lunch stop later on was in Namche Bazaar at the same lodge we stayed at on the way to Base Camp. When we finally reached Monjo we were all very tired from descending and ascending all the steep steps and the rocky trail. Our lodge in Monjo is lovely with fruit trees in blossom and the soothing sound of the river. We will sleep peacefully tonight!
