1st day in the Himalayas.

It was a strange to realise that we had spent only a single day in the Himalaya as so many things had happened.

Arrived to Lukla, the starting point of our hike, with a small airplane for 20 passenger, 2 pilots and a stewardess. We had some delay because of the weather but we had better luck than the guys next day when no plane fly at all.

We saw stupas, Mani wheels, prayer flags and mani stones. Mani stones are rocks or rocky surfaces that are covered with painted letters of the mantra 'om mani padme hum'.

We crossed suspended bridges and gave way to jokpas. Jokoa is a crossing of jak and cow. They said (and experienced) to be tranquil but too big and strong to feel comfortable beside them.
