When to do Everest Mountain flight

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 Everest mountain flight. 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.

If an Everest Mountain Flight is canceled or the weather prevented you from seeing the mountains, you should make a complaint to your airlines and ask them to stamp your ticket for a full refund.

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.

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.

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.
