Lukla Tenzing Hillary Airport

Lukla Airport, which was renamed the Tenzing Hillary Airport in 2008, is both extremely small and extremely busy. With its short runaway, steep incline, and quickly changing weather, Lukla has one of the most challenging runways in the world. In fact, for the past 20 years it has been named the most dangerous airport in the world. High winds, low lying clouds and sudden changes in visibility are some of the reasons behind this title. Bad weather is also a huge factor in the frequent cancellation of flights. Lukla is a gateway for Everest base camp helicopter tour or Everest Heli trek
