I have several and among them are VQPR, NZQN SKPS,

Aircraft never land on 15, if they did, they’d go straight through a crap ton of skyscrapers in Rosslyn. I think that you mean 19, as they make a sharp final turn.

LSGS runway 07 (Sion,Switzerland) has a scenic and challenging approach, makes you go through the mountains (The Alps) at a low altitude. I almost never see people there…

I would recommend using the search bar before creating a topic, after a simple search of “Difficult Approaches” I found several topics asking the same questions that you did. The topic I linked below has a lot of great reply’s and ideas for you! 🙂

Lots of GA fields in the Rockies and Cascades have good approaches, with some being challenging. I had fun with an XCub in those areas.
