Photographer's Note

Paro Airport is the sole international airport of the four airports in the Kingdom of Bhutan. It is 6 km from Paro in a deep valley on the bank of the river Paro Chhu. With surrounding peaks as high as 5500 m, it is considered one of the world's most challenging airports, as a select number of pilots are certified to land at the airport. Flights to and from Paro are allowed under visual meteorological conditions only and restricted to daylight hours from sunrise to sunset.
