Mountain Flight

Mountain Flight in Nepal! Everest Flight in Nepal!

Perhaps the most exciting flight in the world, now with the introduction of pressurised aircraft in Nepal the Everest experience has become Everest Flight a lot more so. Planes are able to fly higher and a lot closer to Everest and the other great peaks that surround it. Flights goes an hour, they fly every day (early morning) during the season time.

Mountain FlightYou will witness most of the world's highest mountains from a very close range. Soon, after take off to their far left visitors are able to see Gosaisthan, also called Shisha Pangma standing at the majestic height of 8,013m. Immediately to the right of Gosaisthan is Dorje Lakpa (6,699m), a mountain resembling a figure eight lying down and covered with snow. To the right of Dorje Lakpa is Phurbi-Ghyachy, which looms over the Kathmandu valley. As the plane moves towards Everest, the mountains come towards you, next in vision is Choba-Bhamare, at 5,933m it is not high by Nepali standards yet is singularly stubborn as it has never been climbed. The real journey begins to enfold, prominent in sight is the spiritual mountain, Mt Gauri Shaker. Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, height of 7,134m.

The summit has had a history of unsuccessful attempts it was not until until 1979 that the first successful summit and return was completed. Gauri Shankar is sharp focus and very conspicuous during the mountain flight. Written about Everest, but to actually witness it's face to face during a mountain flight is an unforgettable experience which will remain with you.
