The Mt. Everest scenic 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 the 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 Mt. Everest scenic flight not only allows you to enjoy fantastic views but also helps you 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, especially early in the morning for the best view!
