On May 4, we got up early and left the hotel in Lhasa in direction of the airport. It is a one-hour drive from the center of Lhasa to the airport. There were many other climbers in the bus, but no of my climbing mates had the intention to leave Lhasa via Kathmandu. Once at the airport, we said good bye to our colleagues and Lhakpa and I went to the International Terminal. There was only one flight leaving the terminal this morning, and it was our flight to Kathmandu. Once we arrived at the security check, we found only six other travelers waiting for the flight. Yes, once again I realized that Kathmandu was definitely not a popular travel destination at this point in time.
