The airport is located 6 km (3.7 miles) from Paro in a deep valley on the bank of the river Paro Chhu. With surrounding peaks as high as 18,000 ft (5,500 m) it is considered one of the world's most challenging airports. AS OF OCTOBER 2009, ONLY EIGHT PILOTS IN THE WORLD WERE CERTIFIED TO LAND AT THE AIRPORT. In 1968, the Indian Border Roads Organisation built an airstrip in the Paro valley, which was initially utilised for on call helicopter operations by the Indian Armed Forces on behalf of Royal Government of Bhutan. Bhutan's first airline, Drukair, was established by Royal Charter on 5 April 1981. Flights at Paro are allowed under visual meteorological conditions only and are restricted to daylight hours from sunrise to sunset. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ All images are subject to ©copyright No repost, regram or reproduce without prior permission All rights reserved ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Paro Thimphu Bhutan Royalbhutan Bhutanese Royalbhutanairlines Aircraft Travel Travelphotography Indianphotographer Drukair Followforfollows Photographers_of_india Instapic Pod VSCO Natgeotravelpic Natgeotravel Natgeocreative Convexrevolution Ig_bhutan Valley Likeforlikealways Click_india_click Instaairports explorethroughcamera architecture ig_bhutan solotraveler airportsofinstagram
