Plane Spotting at Paro.Bhutan

It's considered as one of the most challenging airport in the world.Only eight pilots are qualified to land here. The Airport is 1.5 miles above sea level and surrounded by sharp peaks of up to 18,000 ft tall. The runway is just 6,500 feet long. One of the few in the world shorter than their elevation above sea level. Passengers flying to this remote region may have to take something to steady their nerves. The tiny airport nestled among the steep mountains of the Himalayas is said to be the most dangerous in the world.
