    There is a similar one in Bhutan, called Paro. There are some YT videos showing take off and landing, during take off and climb out there are several monasteries you can see above you and the plane yelling terrain pull up every 5 seconds

    1,729' runway at 9,334' elevation, with high terrain on one end, and a cliff on the other. What could possibly go wrong?

    The way it took off to the right so quickly sure didn’t appear to have anything to do with the airport being dangerous.

    Is it possible the pilot used beta or reverse thrust on the right engine to make the tight turn onto the runway then failed to return the prop to forward pitch?
