Buddha Dordenma by Drone - Thimpu, Bhutan

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Thimphu is the principal city of the Himlayan Kingdom of Bhutan.  The city is situated in the Himalayan foothills at an altitude of 2.2k meters (7.4k ft) above sea level.  The city, and the country of Bhutan, are remote enough that Thimphu does not have its own airport.  AirVuz contributor and pilot Enrico Pescantini used a drone to create this amazing aerial video of the city's giant Buddha statue.  Only completed in 2015, it's already one of the most recognized sites in this ancient and distant city.
