The following day was the flight to Lukla, rated as one of the most dangerous airports in the world. Having only one runway for landing and takeoffs being less than 500 metres long, the runway ends with a steep drop into the valley below, making for an extremely slim margin of error. Thankfully the weather was clear and 35 minutes after flying past beautiful landscapes of mountains, waterfalls and rivers dotted with villages, the plane touched down at Tenzing-Hillary airport 2800 metres ASL. A short walk from the airport was Sunrise Hotel where they checked in, and closeby to the delight of all was a Starbucks with Wifi access.
