Flight to Jomsom

Steep curve before landing
A few days before this plane had rolled over the runway and crashed into the river. Nobody was killed, however.

 This bridge is going to be replaced by one that can carry lorries.
 We took a walk up over the village of Thini to get used to the thin air above 3000m.

The windy valley!

The Maoist insurgence is over but politics still are unstable in Nepal.
