You Can Visit Far Cry 4's Airport in Google Maps

By Leon Hurley on at

Ubi did a lot of location scouting for Far Cry 4 and TIL that, not only, is Kyrat International Airport based on the very real Tenzing-Hillary Airport but you can visit in Google maps.

The comparison popped up on Reddit with this picture:

That's a pretty good in-game likeness, but it doesn't stop there. Click here and you can visit the area in Google maps and have a look around.

I even found this guy, who I'm pretty sure I shot a bit in the game:

Or maybe a bear ate him, I forget now.

If the names sound familar it's because it was originally called Lukla Airport but was renamed after Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. It's actually a busy airport because it's the place where most people planning to climb the mountain arrive.

Here's what landing at it looks like in real life.

Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God, Oh God.
