Shyangboche Airstrip

At 3,750 meters, Shyangboche Airstrip above Namche Bazar is one of the highest in the world. The airstrip is the closest airstrip to Mount Everest, and therefore very helpful to mountaineers who wish to get quickly to Everest Base Camp. The airstrip has has very few facilities. Pilatus porter and helicopter are the only aircraft that operate here.
