Jumla Airport

The road to Jumla Airport is not for timid drivers

Jumla Airport is a high mountain airport at an elevation of 2.347m (7,700ft) above the sea level, located in the Jumla District in Province No. 6 in Nepal.

The road to the airport is the infamous Karnali Higway. It’s a mostly gravel track running along the Karnali river. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. The road includes hundreds of turns bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails.
