Tenzing-Hillary Airport – considered the most dangerous runway in the world.

According to the History Channel’s ranking of the world’s ten most extreme airports, Tenzing-Hillary Airport in the town of Lukla in eastern Nepal, is considered the most dangerous runway in the world. The short runway is surrounded by bad weather and is situated at an extremely high altitude. Despite its reputation as well as the high number of fatal accidents that took place during landings, the airport is very popular since Lukla is the place where most people start the climb to Mount Everest.
