Lukla Airport-the gateway to Mount Everest, one of the most extreme and dangerous airport in the world (just found out this fact!) located on the elevation around 2800m, surrounded by hills and mountains, the runway is just perched by the edge of a steep cliff. its so tiny that the pilot even needed to make a turn in order to stop the plane. the 500 m length of the runway is simply not enough to decelerate the speed. erratic changes in weather and precarious terrain add up the challanges of the landing operation.
one of the himalaya's highlight. it became more and more exciting knowing that one of the pilot on my flight was a girl!
