Everest Gokyo Trek 13:
Tengboche - Lukla

The monastery at Tenboche on the other side of the valley (3860m).

Back at Lukla airport (2840m).

The huge Russian helicopters bring new supplies for the Everest region.
The reconstruction of the airstrip is nearly half finished (they want to open
the airstrip again in October 2001).

The "airport hall" with the check-in counters. It doesn't look like one,
but when you have to pay the airport tax, you believe it...

It's not the 200mm zoom of my camera... (I don't have one). The helicopters
landed so close to us, that we had several painful baths in dust and little stones...

A quick refill of the helicopter...

Finally, we can catch a helicopter. We enter as fast as we can...

Inside the helicopter...

Landing approach to the airstrip of Phaplu. We still believe, that the helicopter
brings us back to Kathmandu...
