Everest Mountain Flight Tour is the best way to see the Himalayas, experience Mt Everest. The sixty minute scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu is more worthwhile than the 17 days Everest Base Camp Trek. The Himalayas is home to several of the world’s tallest mountains including Mt Everest. Everest Experience is a mountain flight-seeing tour in Nepal. A trip to Nepal will be incomplete without truly understanding what really makes Nepal beautiful.

The Everest Mountain flight took off from Kathmandu airport, flew above the sprawling city and over lush lowlands, stepped rice paddies, banana plantations and forests of juniper, rhododendron and pine. Slowly, the verdant greenery gives way; the hills get more precipitous and the vegetation becomes spindly, revealing lichen-covered rock and smatterings of snow. Prayer flags draped across tea houses and monuments become a common sight as the ground dips further and further away. Finally, all you see is a panorama of the Himalayas across the horizon.

The Best Window Seat in The Plane

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. Experience a Mt Everest scenic flight on your Nepal holidays.
