As of Saturday morning in Kathmandu, the HAEX team is assembled at the Kathmandu airport waiting for clear weather. They’ll fly into Lukla to begin their trek to Basecamp, but the pilots need clear weather to make the landing onto the narrow mountain runway.

Here's a picture of the runway at Lukla, the worlds most dangerous airport. That is Doug in the foreground.

From Lottie and Ade: We arrived in Kathmandu on Wednesday - after a pretty long journey - extended now by the 6 hours from Cornwall to Heathrow! This is a really busy place and on the face of it pretty squalid. However I love the hustle and bustle and the Nepalese people are really friendly. There is some real poverty, lots of beggars and children in rags and raw sewage - most upsetting of course are the really mangy dogs and puppies - of which there are hundreds.
