The Everest Experience offers an intimate mountain flight-seeing adventure, allowing you to immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery. Perhaps during this journey, you’ll uncover what you’ve been missing or find what you’ve been seeking all along.

Indeed, a trip to Nepal wouldn’t be truly fulfilling without gaining a genuine appreciation for its magnificence. The winter months from September to April are the perfect time to witness the splendid peaks. It’s when the mountains are cloaked in pristine white snow, and the lakes and glaciers are filled with crystal-clear water flowing from the Himalayas.

There’s simply nothing that can rival the sheer beauty and majesty of the Himalayas. Join us on the Everest Experience, the ultimate mountain flight that brings you so close to Mt. Everest that you can almost reach out and touch it.

Flight details

The flight normally lasts between 50 and an hour. The planes take off from TIA in Kathmandu. During the journey, you will see 20 of Nepal’s greatest peaks, beginning with the Langtang Lirung peak, which is the nearest to Kathmandu, moving east to Mt. Everest, and eventually flying to Chamlang peak. The plane then turns and the passengers get a second glimpse at the scenery as they fly back to Kathmandu.

The mountain flight not only provides breathtaking views but also helps you comprehend Nepal’s geography. Although mountain flights have a short history, they have acquired popularity among tourists due to the beauty that they promise.

  • Flight starts at 6:00 AM early in the morning
  • Mt. Everest 20 miles from your window
  • Witness fantastic Himalayan peaks, lakes and glaciers

The flight attendant will provide you with a map of the ‘Himalayan Peaks’ while you are on board. This map depicts the various peaks that you will see throughout your mountain fly. Flight attendants will also brief you on the visible mountains. Cho-Oyu, Shisha Pangma, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse are among the strikingly gorgeous mountains above 8000 meters.

Tips for Choosing an Everest Flight Tour Seat

  1. Kindly ask for a seat either in the front or rear sections of the aircraft to minimize the wing’s obstruction of your view.
  2. Feel free to request a seat on the left side for a wide, panoramic vista of the mountains or opt for the right side to relish up-close, awe-inspiring mountain views teeming with intricate details.
  3. When traveling with a companion, consider sitting on opposite sides within the same row. This way, you can easily switch seats during the flight to enjoy every perspective.
  4. If you’re flying solo, don’t hesitate to approach a fellow traveler or a flight attendant for assistance with taking photographs. The people of Nepal are exceptionally hospitable and willing to help.
