Do you want to see Mt. Everest from the cockpit and other Himalayan peaks so close that you can almost touch them and without any physical exertion?. Nepal Tours offers scenic Everest Mountain Flight in Nepal using various domestic airlines including Buddha air. Mountain flight offers closest but luxurious option of Himalayan experience where you can glimpse Mt. Everest (8848 meters), which you ever hope to see. One-hour mountain flight takes one close to some of highest peaks in the world including Mount Everest. One can clearly see and identify the peaks, and see the Himalayan landscape and glaciers during the flight. Everyone gets a window seat on the twin-engine propeller plane out of Kathmandu; two rows of single seats line the cabin, so everyone has an unobstructed view of the Himalayas. For ultimate bragging rights, sit on the left-hand side of the plane so you’re first to see the mountain, and try to get a seat just in front of the wing for an uninterrupted vista of the area. During the flight, each passenger will also spend a few minutes in the cockpit with the pilots.

When to do Mountain flights in Nepal?
The best time to take a scenic flight to Mount Everest is before the tour/after your holidays in Nepal, to get a better sense of the mountain’s scale. The sky is generally clear between October to June. Though Mountain Flights is operated and can be enjoyed all the year round. However, through our experience, Nepal Tours would strongly recommend the time period from End of February to Mid of May and End of August to Mid of December as prime time to enjoy the mountain flights. Taking you up to altitude of almost 25000 feet you will be bring back in around an hour. Everest Mountain flight, can be booked for any date according to your interest.

What to take?
Your camera! You’ll get pictures that’ll turn your friends and family green with envy. Be sure to wear warm clothes that can be layered; it’s freezing on the tarmac in the morning before the sun comes up, but you’ll get warm quite quickly on the plane.

Around or over?
Scenic flights don’t actually circle the mountain, nor do they fly over Everest’s peak. Instead, you’ll approach the mountain from Kathmandu airport, passing over the Sagarmatha National Park to the southern side of Mt Everest.

The actual Everest flight was great. The views of Himalayas was amazing and the pilot very kindly took some great photos of Everest for me in the cock pit, as i was one of the last to go up and we were very close.We also received a certificate at the end which was pretty fab. Overall an unforgettable flight.

We flew with Yeti airlines (to the Everest scenic Mountain flight) on 21 April. Everything ran on time and the service was good.You even get invited one by one to the cockpit, which was nice. The Mountain views were incredible! We flew so close that you could see imprints in the snow. And the sky was perfectly clear too giving a beautiful blue backdrop to the mountains. Definitely worth the money.

I recently visited Kathmandu and wanted to do the Mount Everest flight as part of my trip. I emailed Kulendra at Nepal Tours to arrange this before travelling to Nepal. I heard about Kulendra from the positive reviews on this site and the reviews are very accurate. Kulendra was superb – quick to communicate back to any questions. The Everest Mountain Flight itself is great for anyone that wants to get a good view of the Himalayas and Everest. The flight itself is about 1 hour and everyone is guaranteed a window seat. I would recommend Kulendra to arrange this trip for anyone considering it.
