Flying Kathmandu to Lukla [03:09]
Our flight from Kathmandu to Lukla during our trip to Nepal 2009/2010. The landing at Lukla (Tenzing-Hillary Airport) is known to be one of the most dangerous in the world. Due to the terrain, there is no prospect of a successful go-around. There is high terrain immediately after the northern end of the runway and a steeply angled drop, of about 2000 m (6600 ft) at the southern end of the runway, into the valley below.

Episode 181: Crossing The Beer Line [31:42]
Cheers, Salud, Skål, Sláinte, Na Zdorovje, Pyunu Hos! Just a few more hours in Tibet before we head back to Nepal and close out this Everest Kangshung Face trek. Tonight we made it to Nyalam, a little town near the border with Nepal. This will be our last night in Tibet and we'll drive to Zhangmu tomorrow morning, cross over into Nepal and be back in Kathmandu by the early afternoon. Although we're all terribly aware that time is quickly running out on this adventure, Nyalam was a destination that many members of the team have been looking forward to. See, right now we're only just over 12000 feet (3660m) and it's still all downhill from here. That can mean only one thing: I've lifted the alcohol restriction. For a couple of weeks now the team has been giving me grief about my prohibition of alcohol during the trek. Yes, I typically don't drink but that's not the reason. I throw down the rule about no alcohol because it can keep your body from acclimating properly to the altitude. We just don't have the time on these trips to move at a slower pace so I ban (almost) all consumption of alcohol until the final descent. There's really no set altitude at which I decree "you can drink/you cannot drink" as it has more to do with what activities we're undertaking. Still, the group has affectionately called this theoretical altitude as "The Beer Line". Think of it as the line that delineates "The Death Zone" up on Everest. Only, you know, for beer.
