"Embark on an Unforgettable Mountain Flight Experience to Everest"
Embarking on a mountain flight to Everest is an adventure like no other. As a tour that offers breathtaking views of some of the world's highest mountains, the experience is one that should not be missed. Himalaya Land Treks offers a fantastic tour that takes you on an hour-long aerial adventure over the Mount Everest (8848m), allowing you to marvel at majestic vistas of the highest peaks in the world, as well as the scenic views of the Khumbu region.
The Everest Region or Khumbu is situated almost 126km northeast of Kathmandu City, in the mountainous region of Eastern Nepal. It is home to the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO designated National Park, and the ethnic Sherpa tribe. The mountain flight takes off from Kathmandu and traverses the Everest region before heading back.
The flight commences early in the morning, mainly because the skies remain clear at this time of the day. After driving to the airport, you will embark on a flight to Everest, catching some of the pristine sights of the lushly forested hills of central-east Nepal before entering the Khumbu region.
The Everest Mountain Flight offers a breathtaking panorama of Himalayan peaks, including the Mount Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8475m), Nuptse (7861m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Cholatse (6335m), and Ama Dablam (6856m). You'll also be charmed with the beautiful natural topography of Khumbu region, colorful Sherpa settlements, and the DudhKoshi River. Some of the least-seen places during the Everest trek account for the pristine Khumbu Glacier and Khumbu Icefall, the oligotrophic Gokyo Lakes, and the Ngozumpa Glacier. The Everest Mountain Flight allows you to catch the sight of all these places without any compromises.
While flying back to Kathmandu, you can catch the unique sight of the majestic city landscape as well. The flight can be done anytime during the year, but the best seasons are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). However, monsoon (June-August) and winter (December-February) experience heavy rainfall and snowfall, respectively. These can often cause mountain flights to be delayed or canceled as well.
At Himalaya Land Treks, we specialize in tailored tours and treks around Nepal. We cater to all kinds of tourists, offering fixed groups at reasonable rates or entirely private tours. We also provide you with the choice to modify and change the itineraries as per your preferences.
Transfer to Airport: You’ll wake up early morning and drive to the Tribhuvan International Airport. The flight is usually scheduled early in the morning as the skies remain clear. This trip begins in the early morning at around 6.30 am, 7.30 am and 8.30 am when you are most likely to get undisturbed views of the overall valley, including pristine mountains and landscapes.
Embark on the Tour
The Cabin Crew will provide you with detailed information about the peaks you'll see, the history and culture of the region, and interesting facts about the Himalayas. You'll also learn about the different types of vegetation and wildlife found in the region.

It's important to note that the mountain flight is subject to weather conditions, and in case of bad weather, the flight may be delayed or canceled. In such cases, the airline will either reschedule the flight or provide a full refund.
Overall, the mountain flight experience is an incredible opportunity to witness the beauty of the Himalayas without having to trek to high altitudes. It's a perfect option for those who have limited time or physical limitations but still want to experience the majesty of the Everest region.
Return to Kathmandu
After the unforgettable Mountain Flight experience, you'll return to Kathmandu and receive a certificate of completion, which serves as proof of your successful flight to Mount Everest.
