Why is Bhutan airport so dangerous?
Paro Airport in Bhutan is located in a deep valley near the Paro Chhu river. The airport is about a mile and a half above sea level, and is difficult — and dangerous — to land at because of the 18,000-foot peaks surrounding it. As if the surrounding geography didn’t make it difficult enough, the runway is also short.
Why Lukla Nepal is the world’s most dangerous airport?
There’s no single reason why Lukla is repeatedly named the world’s most dangerous airport; it’s a perfect storm of small facts and factors: One end of the runway abuts a cliff with a 2,000-foot drop. There are no navigation aids or night operations at Lukla Airport and weather is unpredictable, to say the least.

Why Kathmandu airport is dangerous?
Short runways are a danger because a pilot has limited space both to get the plane off the ground and to land it safely.
