We finally made it back to Kathmandu - on a helicopter! Finally, thank god! The situation in Lukla was rapidly deteriorating: no flights, bad weather every day with constant rain, same food every day, filthy bathrooms, mice, dog fights and all the people there were starting to LOOSE IT! We were very happy to get out when we did.

We did meet some great people from the UK who shared the chopper ride with us. Hopefully we can get reimbursed for the cost of the flight as it was more like an evacuation than a chartered fun ride...

Regardless it was all part of an amazing experience. Check "helicopter ride through the Himalayan mountains" off the bucket list. Minus the 3 days stuck in Lukla I would do it all again.
