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.
