Trip highlights

Taking a mountain flight is one of the most exhilarating things you can do in Nepal. Easily arranged, you can go eye-to-eye with Mt. Everest and world’s highest peaks within minutes!

Nepal is the home to the greatest range of mountains in the world and understandable many visitors come to Nepal to see them. However, not everyone is a trekker or a mountaineer or has the time to walk into the mountains, so what are the options for these visitors to enjoy the highest points on the planet? Mountain flights!

Even just arriving in Nepal during the hours of daylight can provide the visitors with their first glimpse of the high Himalayas, whether it is arriving from the west past Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna range or from the north past Everest, Makalu and Kanchejunga, the horizon will be a jagged line of high snowy peaks stretching far into the distance.

But there are other ways to get even closer to these summits, the major domestic carriers operate “Mountain Flights”. Leaving Kathmandu domestic airport early in the morning, passengers take an hour’s flight around the Everest region with stunning views of all the major peaks, glaciers and lakes. As a result of the configuration of the seats, all passengers will have a window seat. Should the weather not be suitable you will be either offered a refund or the option to fly again.

For those visitors based in Pokhara there are options like taking a microlight flight into the Annapurna Massif with spectacular views of Annapurna and Machhapuchhre. A microlight is a two-seated small aircraft with powered engine designed to carry no more than two people, the pilot and passenger. 

For visitors who like to take mountain flight to the extreme, there are options to charter helicoptesr and fly into the Everest range, taking a short tour around the Everest valleys before landing for breakfast and then returning to Kathmandu.

If you are one with a higher adventure threshold, then you might also want to experience hang-gliding, paragliding, paramotor flying, sky diving or even participate in relevant training courses. 

The skies are they for you to enjoy the views!
