Lukla is the starting point for anybody willing to scale Mt Everest or to trek upto base camps of the Himalayas in the Khumbu region. It has the world's highest altitude airport known as Lukla Airport, which was renamed as Tenzing-Hillary Airport after the first scalers of Mt Everest. Lukla is all mountains and the airport is itself a part of a mountain. The runway looks dangerous because it is itself a slope and suddenly cuts off to a huge cliff. Yet, there are a lot of flights leaving from Kathmandu to Lukla packed with tourists and trekkers.
