**IS THIS THE MOST DANGEROUS AIRPORT IN THE WORLD*** LUKLA – NEPAL – HIMALAYAS

Voted by the History Channel as the Number 1 MOST EXTREME AIRPORT IN THE WORLD, To land and take off from, due to its high altitude 9100ft above sea level, Its short 465mtr runway with a killer 12% incline/gradient, and the trechorous Himalayan Mountain passes to fly over and round just to get to this nerve jangiling extreme airport which is often shrouded in fog. 2 Weeks after this video was taken we had to be choppered out lower down the valley as Lukla was closed for over 1 week due to dense fog, trapping over 2500 trekkers in Lukla, some of whom decided to take the 3 day trek to Jiri the nearest village with a road and bus service to kathmandu. This was after food and supplies started to run out.
