Adventure of Everest begins at tiny Nepal airstrip

In this Sunday, May 26, 2013 photo, several flights get ready to take off after a couple of days of bad weather disrupted flight services at Lukla airport, Nepal. Carved out of side of a mountain, the airport was built by Sir Edmund Hillary in 1965, and at an altitude of 2,843 meters (9,325 feet) it has earned the reputation of being one of the most extreme and dangerous airports in the world.
