Ok so i wasn't sure where to post this so i created this thread for it. I've just watched a video by Youtube vlogger Sam Chui which shows a cockpit view of the flight from Kathmandu Airport in Nepal to Paro Airport in Bhutan. This flight flies over the Himalayas passing Everest to one of the worlds most dangerous approaches and the approach looks amazing, that's why i thought it might be worthy of sharing.

Many thanks for that, Jerry. I enjoyed watching it. Incredible journey with close-ups of Mt Everest and the other mountains in the range. What a final approach with the airport only coming into view around the corner of another mountain almost at the last minute.

I once flew into Innsbruck in an Austrian Arrows F100. That was spectacular enough as we flew down the Inn Valley before turning 180 degrees onto approach, but this is really something else.

Thank you for sharing @Jerry Watched it right through, the views look very spectacular indeed. Paro Airport in Bhutan looks amazing with numerous vantage points to view aircraft landing and departing from the airfield.

And here's the spotting video of Paro airport! Definitely an amazing place to go plane spotting!
Is that on your list, Jerry? Another superb video from Sam Chui. Many thanks for the link.

Looking at the roads outside the airport, I noted that they drive on the left.
