A Russian built helicopter takes off from Lukla. The village of Lukla is usually the
starting point for most treks to Everest. The sloped gravel covered runway has
a cliff dropping off at one end, and a mountain slope on the other. Landing a plane
at Lukla has been described as trying to park your car in your garage at 80 miles per hour.
