Himalayan vistas

Himalayan vistas

At 31,000 feet we are skimming the tops of the Himalayas, with Everest prominent in the view to the north of our eastward journey from Kathmandu to Paro, Bhutan. The descent into the Paro airport is so tricky that our chartered 757 skipped this part of the journey, and we flew on a scheduled Bhutan Airlines flight where the pilots exhibited great skill in the approach and landing, making sharp left and right turns on the final 20 miles into the airport.

  1. Interesting – that explains it – I saw a photo of the other airlines and was wondering why. My wife, Catherine Bath is on the trip with her friend Anne Stokes. The blog is a great way to keep up.
    Thanks, Tom Bath
