The lat­est news, stays and dream trips from the world of travel…

It is a uni­ver­sal truth that not all air­ports are cre­ated equal. The un­veil­ing of Paky­ong, the first air­port in In­dia’s most north­east­erly state of Sikkim, not only opens up a rare stretch of the Hi­malaya border­ing Bhutan and Nepal but pro­vides one of the most dra­matic land­ings on the planet.
