Here you go

Flew to Qatar and then on to Kathmandu, had a couple of days exploring, Then flew to Lukla (scariest airport in the world... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqgZvb37NX0 )

Then walked thro Namche and turned "left" up to Gokyo, Then after climbing Gokyo Ri crossed the Cho La pass and on up to Gorak Shep. Climbed Kala Pattar and then walked to Base Camp.

Took 4 days to get back to Lukla and then had 3 days in Kathmandu drinking beer and eating pizza in either "Fire & Ice" or "Rum Doodle"

These look fantastic, although the full sized images don't seem to want to load for me at the mo

Enjoy the YouTube of landings at luklua. We flew on Yeti Air piloted by a Buddhist pilot who believes in reincarnation
