Come Fly with Me - Bhutan Skyline

Paro Airport is the only international airport of Bhutan. The airport is located 6 km (3.7 mi) from Paro in a deep valley on the bank of the river Paro Chhu at an elevation of 7,300 ft (2,200 m).
With surrounding peaks as high as 18,000 ft (5,500 m) it is considered one of the world's most challenging airports and as of October 2009, only eight pilots in the world are certified to land at the airport.
Imagine that the pilot who has been taking control of the Druk Air plane is a very experienced and skilled pilot...If i knew this earlier...i would ask him for an autograph!
btw...he is quite tall build and handsome!
Anyway, that's isn't a concern...i m more fascinated with the skyview...
around the airport runway

clear blue skies despite the cold weather
 and surrounded by mountains and valleys
 on the ground, before take-off
 here's the view once it took off the runway
 higher and higher
 reaching the skies...but still can see the mountain's top
 and that is mount Jomolhari
 from afar...it looks amazing!
 very nice view...looks like a postcard
 mount Jomolhari...a nearer shot
 ice mountain and cool cliffs
 abit higher, clear blue skies and clouds
 i'm on cloud 9
amazing view, it feels like floating in the air...
alrite, enuff of the skies...let's get back to the ground...
  Bon Voyage
