On the day of October 27 ,2017 After a day in Katmandu visiting the sites we set off for our trekking adventure this morning. Really exciting flight weaving in between mountains and had our first view of mount Everest above the clouds - landing on the famous Lukla runway surprisingly smooth! We had a great trek to Phakding - very beautiful stone path that passes high above the river through rhododendron trees and villages. Every so often we made way for pack animals, mule trains and horned cows. More challenging was standing on a suspension bridge high above a river trying stay upright as a horse and rider trotted past!
