From Kathmandu: 1 hour Panoramic Everest Flight

1. From Kathmandu: 1 hour Panoramic Everest Flight

Take off from Kathmandu airport in the early morning for a spectacular mountain flight to discovery the majestic scenery of the Himalayas. For those who can’t go trekking in the mountains themselves, get panoramic view of the Himalayas in just an hour-long flight. As the aircraft takes off and heads towards the east, you won't have to wait long to find out what's in store for you. First to your far left you will see Gosaithan, also called Shisha Pangma, standing at the majestic height of 26,290 feet (8,013 meters). Immediately to the right of Gosaithan, you will Dorje Lhakpa appear (22,000 feet or 7,000 meters), a mountain that almost looks like a figure 8 lying in the snow. To the right of Dorje Lakpa is Phurbi-Chyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu Valley. As the plane glides along, the mountains come closer and closer. Next on the vision is Buddha Air Mountin Choba-Bhamare, the smallest mountain of the lot, but singularly stubborn as it has never been climbed. Then appears the mountain that is not only prominent in sight but also in its spirituality, Gauri-Shanker. Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, which was first successfully climbed only in 1979. The mountains of Melungtse and Chugimago are next on the tour, the latter of which is still waiting to be climbed. Numbur and Karyolung, an intensely white mountain, will gleam with the rising sun as we carry on deeper into the mountain range. We will then pass Cho-Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, reaching a height of 27,000 feet (8,201 meters). Gyachungkang, Pumori and Nuptse, each over 22,000 feet (7,000 meters) in height, will mark our path towards the highest mountain of them all: Mount Everest. Known as Sagarmatha by the Nepalese and Chomolungma by the Tibetans, this unbelievable mountain stretches 29,021 feet (8,848 meters) into the sky. Much has already been written about Everest, but to actually witness it face to face during a mountain flight is something else. Even while it looms there in front of the eyes, it remains a remarkable place, this highest spot on earth. The spectacular mountain flights from Nepal Social Travel and Tour are offered by a number of airlines.

From Kathmandu: Patan and Bhaktapur Sightseeing Tour

Tour was well organized. The view of Everest and the other mountains is impressive. The flight is highly recommended. Nabin, our guide, picked us up punctually at 05:10 from the hotel. Then he took us to the airport. At the airport we were given the tickets including a flyer for the mountains. Nabin gave us a short explanation and then accompanied us to the security check. Everyone had a window seat on the plane. In the first half of the flight the right side sees the mountains, in the second half the left side. The flight attendants always informed us which mountains were visible. The plane was a bit dirty but the view through the windows was still ok. The panorama is impressive. After the flight, Nabin welcomed us and brought us back to the hotel.

Something you have to experience! Hotel pick-up and drop-off went smoothly. Flight was postponed by about 1 hour due to bad weather (safety first and not unusual in the mountains). Modern plane and very friendly staff who provided information about the mountains. Each passenger had a window seat. The view of the mountain range and Mount Everest is pure goosebump feeling.

I can only recommend booking a sightseeing flight once you are in Nepal. Otherwise you can only see the everest and the entire mountain chain of the Himalayas from afar

Definitely a must do in Kathmandu! We enjoyed it a lot to see the Himalaya range and the Everest!

Amazing experience and great cabin crew. Approved. Final rating ---> 8+ out of 10.
