The Single Runway of Lukla Airport

This airport is considered by some to be the most dangerous in the world. A single runway slopes down the side of a mountain and ends with a sheer drop at the end. Because this airport is deep in the himalayas, the approach is completely hemmed in by mountains and a plane only gets one shot at a landing. Only certain planes (those with reverse prop technology) are able to land here because they are able to take off and land with such a short distance. The planes actually use the slope of the land to decelerate when they land and also to gain momentum when they take off.
