‘TERRAIN, TERRAIN.....PULL UP......PULL UP’ was not what I was expecting to hear blasting out of the cockpit on the Kathmandu to Lukla flight! I think it’s considered to be one of the most dangerous airstrips in the World and although I’ve done it loads of times, this...

After least nights high jinks in Lukla with the Sherpa team who have made this trip possible, today was a painfully slow wait for our flight back to Kathmandu. Now after nearly 20mins in the shower, we’re off for a fine steak!!
