Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu
07 January 2006
The trekking is finished and a short Twin Otter flight by Yeti Airlines brings me back from Lukla to Kathmandu. Takeoff from Lukla is very funny and offers beautiful views between the mountains of southern Himalayas.
Photos of Lukla airport. The sloping runway 24 at Lukla, ending into a ravine.
On the opposite side, the runway ends into a wall and a mountain. This is one of the world's most odd and difficult airport to fly into and from.
