NOTAM on Tenzing-Hillary Airport (Mt.Everest)

I noticed a NOTAM restricted airspace alert at the airport located on Mt. Everest… I was excited to fly around and see the sights. Anyone know why this is there? An event or something? :(

Without it there would be a bunch of A380s trying to take off. Same reason there’s one at KASE too.


No c130 fighter or jumbo or heavy. Go on YouTube look it up. It a very short runway

This makes sense. I just read this and used an A340 and somehow lifted off the runway before the drop.

Got it. Makes sense. Still good to takeoff with small (realistic) aircraft then or no?

Yes, that is acceptable and the goal of placing a TFR in that area.
