Paro airport in Paro (Bhutan)

This airport is in an unusual configuration. It is part of private or dangerous airports.

The airport surrounded by mountains culminating at 5490 meters and bordered by Paro Chhu, the landing is considered one of the biggest challenges for pilots. The track is only 30 meters wide and 2000 m long. In addition, the aircraft guidance system is obsolete so that the approach must be done entirely by manual piloting. After a descent and a path between the mountains to follow the topography of the valley, the track is finally visible only after having bypassed a last ridge.
