Nagarkot, Nepal πŸ‡³πŸ‡΅

Very early start today and a morning flight from Bhutan πŸ‡§πŸ‡Ή.
For the return journey we had a smaller plane with propellers and we flew back at a height of 22,000 feet.
That would usually be pretty high, but we flew along the line of the Himalayas, looking up at Mount Everest, and it's gigantic friends, who are between 27,000 and 29,000 feet.
Take off from Bhutan was also dramatic with the valley full of clouds that we broke through and then found ourselves in a beautiful, fluffy wonderland.
We landed at Kathmandu and a van was waiting to take us the 20 miles to Nagarkot. The traffic was heavy out of the city, and then we got on to the most terrible mud and rock road that would not even be called a cart track in England. It took us about two and a half hours to get from the airport.
Nagarkot is quite a major tourist attraction, and we are perched in a hotel on the edge of a high hill with panoramic views of the Himalayas.
People come here to see the sunrise and we are in such a prime location that all we have to do is open our curtains and we will be able to see it from our bed!
Ps, we went for a walk this afternoon to admire the views, but got a bit lost in a forest and the back of someone's house. We also concluded that the best view is from our balcony.
