I’ve just returned from a two week trek to Everest Base Camp. We were fortunate to even start the hike, as the flights from Kathmandu to Lukla were grounded due to heavy fog for 6 days. Although overall not an uncommon event, it is quite unusual to happen so long after the monsoon season has finished. We managed to scrape through on one of the few helicopters, as they flew lower to the ground where visibility was better.
I have an even larger backlog of RAW files now – look out for a Nepal gallery soon!
