Recently, the news of TIA being unmanaged and polluted, caught attention. It was restructured and managed. For now, it is in optimal condition. But still, many reformations are required in TIA.
Lukla airport is also known as Tenzin Ã¢€“Hilary Airport. It is situated in Khumbu, Solukhumbu district in the town Lukla. It has earned its reputation as the most dangerous airport in the world.
