Evergreen Aviation first visited Nepal back in 2014, a country known for having some of the worlds most dangerous airports. Aviation is an important mean of transportation in Nepal, since many hilly regions are often impossible to reach with a vehicle. The rural towns located in a high altitude, survive on the little tourism coming in by air and the opportunity to receive and (forward) merchandise.
Many of the domestic airports in Nepal are in poor conditions due to lack of equipment’s in the mountain areas to establish and maintain the runways. The many natural ground runways have poor visual reference and transfers rapidly from dry and dusty via wet and muddy to frozen and bumpy due to changing weather.
