This is the second version of Lukla, located in the mountainous terrain of Nepal and one of the world's most demanding airports.
This add-on gives you more realistic terminal building, realistic control tower, static plane with animated people, runway repositioned to maximize the realism and challenge in this airport (the default Lukla's runway is just about accessible via runway 12), surrounding houses, autogen and exclusions replaced, airport fences and vehicle paths and parking.
To install, simply run the auto-install provided in this zip. folder.

Having never had the pleasure to head over to Lukla myself, I thought the next best thing to do would be to fire up FSX and give it a go, right?
Well, this mod was made aware to me quite recently and I decided to finally make that virtual trip over to Nepal and see how close the mod would be to the real thing. Many hours of studying and assuring that the detail was there later, I was happy to head off into this new and improved Nepal skyline; but what did I make of the entire package?
The first thing that really got to me was how impressive the textures are for a free mod.
Most of the time these mods can be quite hard to get to look right just due to the sheer depth of information being transmitted into the simulation, but this has no problems in getting it right. It’s attentive to the scale and realism of the actual place and also does a particularly spectacular job of making it all work out in the right style.
Although I had never been, the extra addition of things like houses and hangers that actually with the region made a massive difference to the quality and enjoyment of the image being seen here. The attentiveness of the region is something that you can easily understand and enjoy being a part of, instead of just flying in Generic Country A this makes you feel far more at home.
Again, judging from the images I compared this against, this is more or less spot on with attention to detail. It looks magnificent and does a great job of putting the whole thing together.
Whilst the creator never actually put the scenery together, he’s compiled it all and done a great job of making sure that the world of Lukla can finally feel as authentic as possible.
Installation was a piece of cake, as was getting to grips with the terrain – with minimal problems and maximum exposure, this looks absolutely wonderful here.
I was hugely impressed with the work that the team here was capable of putting into the overall look and design and would be more than happy to use this in the future again.
If you are from the area or you want to explore it as I did, start here!
