Everest Mountain Flight

Mountain Flights

A flight over the majestic peaks lavishly demonstrates their glory and sublime beauty to cherish; moments and overwhelming satisfactions do not get better than the ones on this ride. You can enjoy a mountain flight around the Himalayan region and up close to Everest. Especially for those restricted by time, it only takes an hour to fly around the spectacular Himalayas and get a breathtaking experience. You will already have seen glimpses of radiant natural wonders on your arrival to Nepal, which is just a teaser. The Everest mountain flight program is the whole movie with all the tits and bits to make it mesmerizing.

The Everest mountain flight is a 1-hour flight. It takes you around the Himalayas. It is by far the easiest and fastest way to enjoy the views of the majestic Himalayan massifs. Something that would take weeks of trekking can be quickly done in an hour by flight. Therefore it is very suitable for travellers with time constraints. Your flight usually leaves early in the morning, around 6:00 AM. Just in time, with the sunrise, the mountains gleam with the first rays of the sun. The planes are small jets that have an 18-seat capacity. The airline seating arrangements guarantee that every passenger has a window seat, so you do not have to worry about getting a seat on the aisle. Three popular airlines provide the Everest mountain flight: Buddha Air, Sheree Air, and Yeti Air.

Your flight takes off from the domestic airport in Kathmandu and heads towards the east. On the way, you will witness the beautiful valleys, lush flora and fauna, and mountain ranges far from the sacred grounds. Almost immediately after the flight, the stunning peaks will come into view. You first see Gosainthan to your left. Also called Shisha Pangma, this mountain stands 8,013 meters tall.

Along with Gosainthan, you will witness other smaller peaks. You will see a variety of mountains from here onwards that reach out to more than 6,000 meters. As you fly further, you come closer to Gauri Shankar (7,134m). Ahead, you will see the Melungtse plateau (7,023m) along with Mount Chugimago (6,297m), which has never been conquered. As you get closer to Everest, you see Gyan Chunking (7,952m) and Pumori (7,161m). Finally, when you are almost there, the west peak Nuptse (7,861m), directs you towards Everest. When you fly across Nuptse, you see Mount Everest (8,848m), the tallest mountain on earth.

The dazzling view of this beautiful phenomenon melts your heart. Your picture gets much better with the morning sunshine hitting the silver surface of the mountains. And within an hour, you will have completed a full tour of the legendary Himalayan massifs. The flight incorporates the hallmarks of the grand Everest region and its neighbouring peaks in a short period to introduce you to the astounding Himalayas.

Taking an Everest mountain flight is possible all around the year. You can book a flight from domestic airlines and fly off to the mystical mountains. However, to get the best experience of mountain flights, it is best to try this during the autumn or early summer months. These usually occur around October to November and February to April. This is because you will face lower chances of weather disturbances during these months. The skies will be clear, and your views will be the best possible. If, in any case, the weather worsens, your flight will be rescheduled for the next day. Since this flight trip will be happening every day throughout the year, you can quickly get a booking.

Aeroplanes can fly higher than the mountains, but it is better not to do so. If, in any case, there is an emergency, a plane will need to descend in altitude. If it is flying above a mountain during an emergency, it can be challenging to come down. In addition to this, flying at high altitudes can cause a loss in cabin pressure. The aeroplane must descend to a size that has enough air to breathe. Therefore flying above the mountains isn’t the best way to enjoy mountain flights.

Everest mountain flight gives you an exhilarating feeling of being second to none. To behold such views of the world’s tallest mountains can be a lifetime experience to enjoy and reminisce about. If this does not quench your adventure thirst, you can also try paragliding, skydiving, paramotor flying, etc.

Everest Flight takes you around the Himalayan and close and other Himalayas reasons. Mountain flight shows Mount Everest and the different Himalayas range.
