If you’re flying from Paro in Bhutan to India’s New Delhi on a clear day, the view on the right hand side is to die for. For it’s not every day that you get to fly close enough to some the world’s highest peaks and see them in all their glorious beauty
The video (above) was captured on board a DrukAir flight, Bhutan’s national airline, and shows off the mighty peaks of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, the fourth-highest peak in the world, and Mount Makalu, the fifth-highest. On closer look, you can even see snow blowing off the peak of Mt Everest, as the pilot makes an announcement in the background.
You can watch a video encapsulating the entire Druk Air flight from take-off to landing, which even shows off Mount Kanchenjunga, the world’s third-highest peak, below:
