From Dehli to Kathmandu

Oct. 10, 2005 - Dehli - Kathmandu
We took of rather late from New Dehli. After three hours of paperwork at the airport, the flight brought us some relaxation. After leaving the northern indian plain, the terrain starts to rise. Immense forests cover the hills. The rivers search their way through.

Approaching Kathmandu a line of clouds over the first mountain range blocked the view. We where very happy for the IFR-Appoach training we went through with Ursula Bühler-Hedinger. Just after we broke through this line of clouds, the Kathmandu-Valley opened before us. It was like entering the paradise.
