Lukla Airport got its new name, Tenzing-Hillary Airport, in 2008 as a tribute to the first people who reached the top of Mount Everest: Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary. Sir Hillary supervised the airport’s construction in 1964. Originally, he wanted to build it on flat farmland, but local farmers didn’t want to give up their land. So, he bought the land from Sherpas for USD 2,650. Before it got paved in 2001, the runway wasn’t solid enough for planes to land. To strengthen it, Sherpas spent days walking, running, dancing, and singing on the plowed ground.
