Landing at the World’s Most Dangerous Airport: Paro in Bhutan (AMAZING Mount Everest Views)

If you’re a thrill-seeker or an adventurous traveler, then Paro Airport in Bhutan should definitely be on your bucket list. Considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world, Paro offers a spectacular landing experience like no other. Not only will you feel your adrenaline pumping as you navigate through deep valleys and turbulent weather conditions, but you’ll also be treated to breathtaking views of the mighty Mount Everest.

Located in the small Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, Paro Airport is nestled at an altitude of 2,235 meters (7,333 feet) above sea level. Surrounded by towering mountains, this airport requires a highly skilled pilot who can maneuver a plane through treacherous mountainous terrain and withstand strong crosswinds. Due to its challenging approach, only a handful of pilots are licensed to land at Paro Airport.

Stepping out of the plane onto the tarmac at Paro Airport, you’ll be greeted by the awe-inspiring beauty of the Himalayas. On a clear day, passengers are treated to magnificent views of the majestic Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak, standing tall at 8,848 meters (29,029 feet). The airport’s unique location makes it an exceptional gateway to the wonders that Bhutan has to offer.

While many might find the idea of landing at one of the world’s most dangerous airports intimidating, Paro Airport prides itself on its impeccable safety record. A testament to the skills of the pilots and the rigorous training they undergo to master the challenging landing, travelers can rest assured that their journey is in capable hands.

Aside from the landing experience, there’s plenty more to explore in Bhutan. Bhutan is known for its rich and well-preserved cultural heritage. The capital city of Thimphu offers a contrast between ancient monasteries and modern buildings, providing an intriguing glimpse into Bhutan’s unique blend of tradition and progress.

Fun Facts:

1. Paro Airport has only one runway, which means it can only accommodate small to medium-sized aircraft. This limitation adds to the airport’s exclusivity.
2. The approach to Paro Airport is so challenging that pilots must undergo special training and obtain a separate license to land there. Their skills are rigorously tested before they are granted permission to fly into this majestic airport.
3. Bhutan is a landlocked country, sandwiched between India and China, making Paro Airport the sole international gateway for travelers to this picturesque nation. It serves as the primary entry point for tourists who wish to explore the magic of Bhutan.

So, if you’re an intrepid traveler seeking a unique and thrilling experience, booking a flight to Paro Airport is undoubtedly a must. Prepare to be captivated by the incredible views of Mount Everest as you touch down in this extraordinary kingdom, where you can immerse yourself in Bhutan’s rich culture and breathtaking landscapes. Remember, though the journey may be perilous, the reward is truly priceless.

  1. I casn't find any traces of Bhutan having operated an A320, besides 2013-2014 of a single piece A320. LY-SPB

    Can you confirm that it was indeed a A320, not an A319, THAT both Airlines, Druk Air and Bhutan Airlines operates a few of.

  2. Sure - and you fly in and out - but absolutely nothing about the country and the feeling ie atmosphere about being in Bhutan. Sorry - you can put a mark on your bucketlist - but you have never been visiting Bhutan in my mind.
    Just one question - did you see the policeman at the crossing point in Thimphu (25 miles from Paro) ??
    Bhutan is the only country in the world without red, yellow and green lights - did you know that ?
    Keep on travelling - and as you know , I'm a bit "a stone in your shoe" Sorry once again...

  3. And amazing that you recommend ultraluxe Six Senses Bhutan lodges….. instead of recommending "take in the Bhutan way of living" and remember you have to pay 250 US dollars pr day incl car, guide, meals etc and it's all worth of this !!! - why don't you inform your followers about this ? Six Senses Bhutan lodges ….. only for rich Americans , chinese and people from India (indians ??) and so you and they have been to Bhutan - money/income means a lot to the Bhutanese people, but they are not the best of visitors, sorry.

  4. There’s a Bhutan airline? What the fuck is Bhutan? Why would anyone travel there? You can get shitty food in New Jersey! If you’re dead set on visiting a shithole, think Baltimore or Detroit, land of the blackened people.
    Land of the draggin people. Ridiculous!

  5. Aahaaa🤗😍what a luck I had 15 days ago I was with same flight same voice same gorgeous Everest same wonderful noise of engine n extremely beautiful Paro Airport Seriously I lost my Heart in Himalayn Range love u Bhutan

  6. Thank you for sharing this beautiful upload......The aerial view of the Himalayan Ranges is amazingly stunning and enjoyed every minute of it
    Luxury travel is beyond my means yet, I get to "feel this luxury" through such uploads. Thank you, so much.

  7. Sorry once again - did you also visit Trashigang, Mongar and Trongsa in the eastern part of Bhutan ? Otherwise .....you think you have been to Bhutan, but you haven’t. 90 % visit Paro, Thimpu and Punakha - and they think they have been to Bhutan, but the real Bhutan is in the eastern area. And once again - 45 degrees when landing and takeoff ?? Come on - business and first class has apparently another view of degrees.
