Phaplu Airport


Phaplu airport is currently being re-surfaced, with work on a new terminal completed. When it re-opens for business, it will be among the most modern airports in the mountains. The airport is a lifeline for people in these areas, although recently the road has also reached Phaplu. From Phaplu, one can walk to the famous Thupten Choeling monastery, or make your way onwards to Lukla on the Everest trek.
