Kathmandu - Paro with Errigal

Hello! These are some pictures from a very fun flight that I did with @Errigal, on the Expert server! The route was from the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu (ICAO: VNKT) to the city of Paro, in Buhtan (ICAO: VQPR). My favorite part of the flight was definitely the approach into Paro. Surrounded by mountains, it truly is spectacular. Weaving around the valley, avoiding terrain, and then finally the infamous final approach. Due to hills, and mountains, Paro requires last second turns to align with the runway. If you haven’t tried landing at Paro, I highly recommend it. But you didn’t come here for commentary, you came for photos! Enjoy!

Imagine the Buhtan Airlines livery on this


Goodbye Kathmandu


Cruising level with the stunning Himalayas


Entering the valley that holds our destination, Paro


Short final, but still not aligned with the runway


A last second turn that is necessary to land safely


Errigal decided to try the other side of the runway, which forced him to do a much later, and steeper turn
