Lukla Airport

I’m into extreme airports.  I’m talking about high elevation.  Short sloping runway.  3000′ drop at one end.  No instrument approach.  One way in and one way out.  Lukla’s Tenzing-Hillary airport qualifies.  This is the strip that a lot of people go into on their way to Mt. Everest, typically in Canadian-made DHC Twin Otters.  Unfortunately, I’ve only been there in 1’s and 0’s on Flight Simulator.  Maybe some day in real life.
