Internationale Lhotse Expeditie 2008.m4v [14:31]
De 40-jarige Herman Kristen uit Alkmaar is de eerste Nederlander die op het topje van de Lhotse (8516m) berg in Nepal heeft gestaan. De berg ligt pal naast de Mount Everest (8848m) en de top ligt zo'n 300 meter lager, maar hij doet er qua moeilijkheidsgraad zeker niet voor onder. Een knappe prestatie dus van deze Nederlander.

Although the flying distance is short, rain commonly occurs in Lukla while the sun is shining brightly in Kathmandu. High winds, cloud cover and changing visibility often mean flights can be delayed or the airport closed completely. The airport is contained within a chain link fence and patrolled by the Nepal armed police or civil police around the clock. Lukla Airport is the usual jumping off spot for those adventurers that are heading off to tackle Everest. The pilots flying into and out of Lukla are adventurers in their own right, for just landing and taking off out of this place! The airport's paved asphalt runway is only accessible to helicopters and small, fixed-wing, short-takeoff-and-landing aircraft, such as the De Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter or Dornier Do 228.
