It was dissapointing to come to Katmandu and not being able to see either Mount Everest or the on this trip. However it means we have to come back someday- hopefully with more time to spend so that we can outwait the weather!
By the way mt Everest is about 250km and the Himalayas about 150km from Katmandu.
