So we took this crazy flight into Lukla from Kathmandu, which involved a panoramic mountain-skimming flight for 35 mins, not far short of missing the side of a mountain to land on the runway - consequently, when there is a lot of cloud, they can't fly (or land)!

We got to the lodge to find a lone American sat in the dining room who was on his way up Everest for the 5th time! We had a quick chat with him in which time we discovered that he had previously filmed the blind guy, Erik Weihenmeyer, on his Everest attempt and would be going back next year to film an IMAX 3D film on the mountain on his 6th attempt!
