Helicopter in the Himalayas

“Do you guys want to go on a Helicopter ride to Mustang?” My friend Diana asked me on Saturday night in Kathmandu, Nepal where we were vising for the week. Her friend knew of a helicopter that was going to the area to retrieve an altitude sickness-suffering tourist (boo!) but there would be two free round trip seats for the taking (yay!). We got up at the crack of dawn to catch the 6am departure. It was about a three hour journey round trip, and breathtaking all the way. It made me county my blessings to have such amazing, resourceful, and hospitable friends – truly priceless.
