Everest Experience Mountain Flight Tour

Embark on one of the most exclusive flights over the Himalayas on the Everest mountain flight. It is one of the most affordable, comfortable, and quickest ways to enjoy the beauty of the Himalayan mountains. People of all ages can participate in the Everest mountain flight.

Everest mountain flight is an hour-long commercial flight purely designed to let travelers experience the beauty of the Himalayas from the sky. The flight takes off from Kathmandu, flies over the Langtang Himalayas, and heads towards Mt. Everest (8,849 m), the highest mountain in the world. During the Everest mountain flight, you will get to see the 20 most stunning mountains in the world and numerous peaks & hills.

The Everest mountain flight is one the best ways to come across the mountain of Nepal. If you cannot trek or have a free morning in Kathmandu, then we highly recommend the Everest mountain flight. Some of the most experienced airlines operate the Everest mountain flights, so you do not have to worry about safety. You will be flying with the best.

If you want your Everest flight more immersive and wish to land for a few minutes, then we recommend our Everest base camp helicopter tour with a landing program. It is more on the costly side than the Everest mountain flight, but you get to enjoy multiple landings and breakfast at Hotel Everest View before returning. The EBC helicopter tour is a 4-hours long program.

Everest mountain flight has been long serving to offer the first clear panorama of the Himalayas to travelers who cannot trek to Everest base camp. The flight well shows the unique geography of Nepal. In flight, you'll get a brochure that marks all the major mountains one can see during the flight. Likewise, the air hostesses will also help you identify the mountains.
