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.

Hello! I enjoyed the trekking a lot. It was long enough to enjoy the jungle, and not too long to get bored. Akke was a great companion offering many stops and lunch brakes during the trek. Sunrise at the Poon Hill was very rewarding the view steps you have to take in the morning. Trip is quite pricey, but you don't get it cheaper. People with back problems should take a jeep or if bus, then should not sit at the back seats. No heating in rooms, but once you get under the blanket, you're fine. They have organic food in the guesthouse. I am a soup lover, so had a tomato and hot and sour soup ordered. Have fun :)

The Pokhara Cable Car Tour offers an unparalleled bird's-eye view of Fewa Lake and the majestic Himalayas. It's a breathtaking experience that truly captures the beauty of Nepal's natural wonders. Highly recommended for anyone seeking awe-inspiring vistas!
