Lukla to Phakding blog | Mount Everest base camp trek | Day 1 by A Mango Traveler

Posted Date :   23 November 2019 05:03:20 PM  
Pheeew... Let me start this blog with the experience of the Lukla flight !
 
My goodness, that was the smallest plane I got the opportunity to sit in. After waiting long hours at Ramachep airport, our turn finally came. Our flight was from Sita Airways. Frankly, I hate to fly in airplane, but sometimes ofcourse don't have choices if have to travel far or to such locations.
 
Flying to Lukla airport comes under the most dangerous airports in the world. And why Tenzing Hillary airport is so dangerous. Let me tell you that in 2008, an aircraft crashed while landing in Lukla killing 18 passengers on-board. In 2013 a Helicopter crashed killing 1 passenger and there are several other crashes that happen every year here in which passengers and crew members were injured. In 2019, yes on April 14, 2019, exactly 10 days before the flight, a plane hit 2 helicopters while taking off from Lukla, killing 3 people. This I had not told to Gaurav.
 
But at the same time, I must say it was fun. Though all the time, I was only reciting God name, a little twist in air and my heart usually sank down, I was hell of scared, goosebumps on my full body :D but still my Goodness, I am writing this - It was fun. And thanks to God, we landed safely there.
