We all have had a bad landing experience. But when you read about the conditions at these airports, you will think again before you classify your experience as “scary” or “unsafe”. These 10 airports, located all over the world, are not for the faint hearted – do you dare to fly to any of the locations?
Lukla Airport, Nepal
This airport serves as the main landing spot for those wanting to visit the Mt. Everest. But if you thought climbing to the Mt. Everest is hard, flying to the airport close to the Mt. Everest might not be much easier. The runway of this airport is one of the shortest in the world and lays nested between the huge mountains.

There are times when planes have landed without any assistance. There are on three airlines who dare to fly to, and from, this airport.
