Hundreds of tourists have finally been able to leave the Mount Everest region after bad weather conditions had left them stranded for a week.

At one point it is estimated 2,000 people were stuck in the Nepalese mountains as fog prevented flights in and out of Lukla airport. They expressed their relief as they arrived in Kathmandu.
