    And here it comes!!

    Mount Everest - 8848 mts. above sea level

    Oh my God! This is what is all about. Chomolungma, Sagarmatha, Qomolungma or Mt. Everest, whatever you want to call it. First climbed by Sir Edmund Hillary and Norgay back in 1953, just because it was there.

    Words is what I don´t have to describe it. I´m just so lucky to be there, at least once, from a plane. Now I hope to come back to do the base camp trekking. Perhaps someday...

    Mountain view flight - First step

    Something you can't miss. It was my first time in Nepal, and perhaps certainly the last. How could I skip a view to this natural monument? Not only for Nepal, but for the World.

    There are several agencies that arranges those flights. In my case it was Yeti Airlines, on Friday May 13rd. Are you supersticious? Well, I lived to tell the story.

    The picture was taken in the bus heading to the plane at Kathmandu Airport. Be ready to be checked, and checked, and touched, and checked several times before departure.

    Sir Edmund Hillary & Tenzig Norgay

    Mount Everest & Himalayans, Nepal

    In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and his sherpa, Tenzig Norgay became the first men who successfully reached the summit of Mount Everest, thus creating history. They did it using the South Col route from Nepal passing through the dangerous Khumbul Icefall. Mount Everest can also be climbed from the northern route from Tibet, but it is more difficult this way.

    We flew from Kathmandu with Yeti airlines around $125 per person with guaranteed window seat. Despite being to Everest base camp it was still well worth the money

    Well worth the trip and staying near the Rongbuk Monastery. From the Monastery either walk or take horse and cart to Base Camp. Here the views are absolutely brilliant.
