I have never ever thought that I would get a chance to see Mt. Everest in this lifetime. I was so lucky that when I booked the ticket from Chengdu to Kathmandu last 2009, the stopover was in Lhasa, Tibet.
This is probably one of the greatest highlights of my past trip. I was so lucky to have stopped at Lhasa and see a small part of Tibet from the air. I was also lucky that it was a clear day and we got to see Mt. Everest on our way to Kathmandu.
