Lukla is just WOW

I flew to Lukla from another nearby handcrafted Airport (can’t remember name) in the kingair. A really challenging flight, tough to get high enough and on route and an amazingly hard approach into Lukla. I followed atc instruction until getting close to destination as if I followed their instructions when near Lukla I would have hit a mountain. First sight of lukla was from about 3 miles out but I was easily 10000 feet too high. I had to circle really carefully losing hight as I went. Managed to land the plane badly but intact. The runway is sloped like a ski jump lol. Highly recommended route… Good luck :grin:
