An Everest Mountain Flight is beyond one’s imagination, because you’ve never seen anything like it before. Only a bird gets to see this glorious view and you’re up close within minutes of being airborne. Enjoy a close look at some of the world’s higest peaks including Mt. Everest and go home with incredible pictures because everyone gets a window seat!
Taking a Mountain flight is the easiest thing to do. Buy a ticket and you’re taken on an hour long flight that flies higher than some of the Himalayan peaks, looking down on glaciers and high altitude lakes. Nepal has eight of the highest mountains in the world and the only way to see them all is by flying past them. Even mountaineers don’t get to see them up close all in a day. The hostess identifies the individual peaks and the pilot invites each passenger to the cockpit to take pictures of Everest from their large windscreen.
The Everest flight usually lasts between 50 minutes up to an hour. The planes take off either from TIA, Kathmandu. During the flight, you will catch a glimpse of 20 of the highest peaks to the East of Nepal starting from the Langtang Lirung peak which is the closest peak to Kathmandu, then move towards Mt. Everest in the East and finally fly to Chamlang peak. From there, the plane takes a turn and the passengers get a second look at the view while they make their way back to Kathmandu.
Everest Mountain flight offered by a host of different airlines. We offer mountain flight in Nepal by Buddha Air a 19 seated American Beech 1900D aircraft and Yeti Air a 19 seated DeHavilland DHC-6/300 Series Twin Otter. We have found these to offer the best flight services.
For luxury visitors who like to take a mountain flight to the extreme, there are options to charter helicopters and fly to the Everest range, taking a short Everest heli tour with breakfast around the Everest valleys before landing for breakfast and then returning to Kathmandu.
