Overall rating

4.8 / 5

Well organized and a great way to see Mt Everest! The driver leaves you at the check in desk but the airport was easy to navigate and the flights are posted on the screen. If you have any questions, there's a desk with attendants you can ask. They announce boarding calls on the loudspeaker and on the screen. Once in the air the flight attendants come around and point out each area on the "mountain map" you're given. A great experience!

A once-in-a-lifetime experience. Everyone had a seat close to a window to see all of the mountains. The airline also provides a visual guide of the names of the mountains and some of their meanings. The crew also moved around the plane and helped each side identify the mountains. I highly recommend this experience.

Good experience. Comfortable hotel pick up and drop service. Window seat provided for the flight with good views of the Himalayas including Mt. Everest and some of the other highest mountain peaks in the world. Worth the money 👍🏼

Trip of a lifetime! The mountains are truly awesome and I’m so glad I booked this trip. At lower altitude we couldn’t see the mountains due to pollution and it was truly breathtaking to see them up close over the clouds.

A truly awesome experience. Our driver was prompt and friendly. The flight attendants helped us identify the mountains during the flight. It was a once in a lifetime event.
