Mt. Flight to Everest
The flight usually lasts about an hour. The flight is operated from Kathmandu. During the flight, on a clear day, you will get a glimpse of 20 highest peaks in the east of Nepal, starting from Langtang Peak, which is the closest peak to Kathmandu, then moving towards Mount Everest in the east, and finally flying to Chamlang Peak. From there, the plane makes a turn and passengers get a second look at the sight as they head back to Kathmandu. The mountain flight not only allows you to enjoy fantastic views but also helps you to observe the geography of Nepal. Although mountain flights do not have a long history, they have gained popularity among tourists for the beauty they promise. Different airlines offer mountain flights every day, early in the morning when the views of the Himalayas are the best!
While on board you will receive a ‘Himalayan Peaks’ map from our flight attendant. This map contains information about the different peaks that you will see during the mountain flight. You will also receive a briefing from our flight attendant of the visible mountains. You will see astonishingly beautiful mountains that are above 8000 meters such as Cho-Oyu, Shisha Pangma, Mt. Everest and Lhotse from an airplane window seat. After completing the Mt. flight, you are provided with a personalized Everest Experience certificate for each passenger.
