10Tenzing-Hillary Airport (Lukla Airport), Nepal

Nestled amidst the Himalayas at an altitude of 9,334 feet, Lukla Airport holds the title of the world’s most dangerous airport.

Its short, sloped runway, flanked by steep cliffs and unpredictable mountain weather, demands exceptional piloting skills. The challenging terrain and limited maneuvering space make landing and taking off a nerve-wracking experience for even the most seasoned pilots.
