Scenery Qamdo Bangda Airport (ZUBD), Tibet, the highest airport in the world at 14,219 feet. By Anwar Gonzalez.

Qamdo Bangda Airport (IATA: BPX, ICAO: ZUBD) (pinyin: Changdu Bangdá Jicháng), located in Bangda, Qamdo, Tibet, is the highest airport in the world, at an elevation of 4,334 metres (14,219 ft). Runway 14/32 is the longest publicly used runway in the world, at 5,500 m (18,045 ft) (or 3.42 miles). The low air density at this altitude makes a higher takeoff and landing true airspeed necessary, and therefore a longer runway. The airport is 2.5 hours by mountain road from the county seat of Chamdu/Changdu/Qamdo. The long commute is the result of no flat land closer to the city being available to construct an airport. Visitors are warned before landing to move slowly on leaving the plane and that they may feel light headed or dizzy because of the thin air. However, Bangda will surrender its title of being the highest airport in the world. China is planning to build one at Nagqu at an elevation of 4,436 metres (14,500 ft). The construction is planned to start in 2011 and take three years to complete.
