Flying into a dangerous airport! [00:50]
Lukla, Nepal is the start of the trail to Mt Everest. It's considered fairly remote with one of two options to get there -- a walk in or plane flight into one of the most dangerous airports in the world. Flying low through the fog, surrounded by enormous mountain and guided by what only looks like the GPS in my car ensures anyone's knuckles turn white. The Tenzing-Hillary Airport runway approach hangs off a mountain edge, is desperately short with a 12 degree incline and is susceptible to strong cross winds from the mountains Definitely makes you feel more alive!

Mountain flight, Nepal [04:32]
Buddha Air Mountain flight in an ATR-42 from Kathmandu, Nepal. This is a one hour flight which takes in Mt. Everest and many other peaks in the eastern Himalayas. Flights start at 0630 and it's advisable to book the first flight of the day because the rising mist obscures the view as the day progresses.

This was one of the many suspension bridges we crossed during our trek in Nepal. It had to be at least 150-200ft high, so I almost wet myself when a yak started coming across the very narrow bridge towards me.
