Sunny Garden put together a decent breakfast for us, then we took a short stroll over to Tenzing - Hillary Airport to watch the airplanes and helicopters land and take off.

Soon after we got back, our flight call came a couple of hours early. We hurriedly finished packing and retraced our steps back to the terminal.

Everything went smoothly and we were soon on board the little Tara Air plane again.  The pilot hit the throttle and near the end of the downhill runway we took to the air.

We sat on the right side and enjoyed our last panoramic views of the Himalayas.  The terraced hills gave way to flatter plains and in short order we were on the ground in Kathmandu.

KC escorted us to our hotel via taxi.  We went through the motions with some repeat room rate negotiations, then checked in and sent our guide on his way, tip in hand.
