Overview

Get a chance to indulge in one of the most exciting tours in Nepal. Mountain Flight to Everest takes you on an hour-long aerial tour to the Mount Everest (8848m), offering majestic vistas of some of the highest mountains in the world, along with the scenic view of the Khumbu region. Moreover, the Mountain Flight of Everest by the Himalaya Land Trekscan be undertaken by anyone.
Everest Region or Khumbu lies almost 126km northeast to Kathmandu City in the mountainous region of Eastern Nepal. Everest is home to the Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO designated National Park and the ethnic Sherpa tribe. The mountain flight takes off at Kathmandu and traverses around the Everest region before heading back to Kathmandu.
Mountain Flight of Everest commences at the historical Kathmandu City. The tour begins the early morning, mainly because the skies remain clear at this time of the day. You’ll drive to the airport and embark on a flight to Everest. You will catch some of the pristine sights of the lushly forested hills of central-east Nepal before entering Khumbu region. Everest Mountain Flight offers the breathtaking panorama of Himalayan peaks, namely, 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. While the flight can be done anytime of the year, spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) seasons are the best ones. However, monsoon (June-August) and winter (December-February) experience heavy rainfall and snowfall respectively. These can often cause mountain flights to be delayed or cancelled as well.
