Lukla - The world's most dangerous airport

Posted by Anup Baral August 30, 2016 :Lukla is a town in the Khumbu area of the Solukhumbu District in the Sagarmatha Zone of north-eastern Nepal. Situated at 2,860 metres, it is a popular place for visitors to the Himalayas near Mount Everest to arrive.
Lukla contains a small airport servicing the region, and a variety of shops and lodges catering to tourists and trekkers, providing western-style meals and trail supplies. From Lukla, travellers will take two days to reach the village Namche Bazaar, an altitude acclimatization stop for those continuing on. In August 2014, the Nepalese government announced plans to open the first tarmac road from Kathmandu to Lukla.
