A fantastic and spectacular Airfield at 3800m. There may be thick clouds all day, or more than 10 landings on a busy day. Most of the traffic is Mil 8/17 transporting cargo. They often perform rolling landings, even with tailwind. The Airfield was built to accomodate Pilatus Porters, but unfortunately all of Nepals Porters have crashed.

Awesome shot! I was in Namche 2 years ago, I didnt't get to see Syangboche but, was too sick from being at 5500m. It really is a crazy 'runway'!
