Here's a photo taken from the plane today as we flew from Tibet to Katmandu, Nepal. Mt. Everest was on our right, and I thought the plane would tip because everyone wanted a look! The large peak on the left is Mt. Everest, tho there are lovely Himilayan Mountain chains all around. This is just one of hundreds of breath-taking views.
Here's a closer look, taken by our tour leader Dan Robertson.
We'll be landing in Delhi, India tonight and make our way to Darjeeling tomorrow.
I have so much to share with you about this trip (like climbing the steps to the Potala Palace and having yak butter tea in a Tibetan nomad's tent yesterday - real people in the remote Tibetan grasslands, anything but a tourist attraction)...but I will share much of that when I get home. I'm focused on absorbing all that I can and sleeping when we have a few hours. If the internet is decent in India (no idea what it will be like), I hope to get in at least one more post.
