Trip Overview

Immerse into the Everest Experience flight with a Hiking Annapurna and witness once in a lifetime experience in Nepal. Mountain flight is being the best alternative to the Helicopter tour since we can fly over the Himalayas in an hour-long journey in a plane inspecting the Mighty Himalayas in the North.

Everest base camp helicopter landing is the only flight to the Everest base camp. However, it’s going to cost you way more expensive than Everest Mountain flight. Hence, Mt. Everest flight tour is a better choice to make for the best Everest experience flight in a short duration of time.

Nepal Mountain Flight Operator

1. Yeti Airlines

Regular flights are conducted daily from Kathmandu towards the Himalayan Range in the North and East of Kathmandu. The flight generally takes off in the morning and lasts for one full hour. This is the quickest way to get a close look at Mt. Everest, the highest mountains in the world (pictured above). Other mountains that can be viewed at close range are Nuptse (7879 M), Lhotse (8501 M), Cho Oyu (8000M), Makalu (8475 M) and Kanchenjunga (8584 M). Yeti Airlines operates SAAB-340 and Dornier-228 Airlinescraft for Mountain Flights. Both Airlinescraft have large and clear windows and provide superlative sights of the Great Himalayan Range.

Yeti Airlines's mountain flights are spectacular than any other operation in Nepal because Yeti Airlines's SAAB-340 flies at an optimum altitude of between 20,000 to 25,000 ft. and shows you the Himalayan Range like never before. The mountains are at eye level for your maximum viewing pleasure. The Dornier-228 shows you Mt. Everest by virtually flying into the lap of Everest (Khumbu Valley). Unless you decide to take up mountaineering, this is the closest view of Mt. Everest that you'll ever see.

Unlike in other Airlinescraft, the non-tinted windows of both SAAB and Dornier provides you with excellent opportunity to photograph the mountain and keep your memories fresh forever. Sharper and clearer vision of the Himalayan Range is where your money is best spent.

The ideal wing position of both Airlinescraft means that you have an unobstructed view of the mountain ranges. Yeti Airlines operates nearly one hour of mountain flight.

 3.Shree Airlines

Enjoy the majestic grandeur of the highest peak in the world with Shree Airlines. Imagine yourself sitting comfortably, camera in hand or really your mobile phone, sipping on a hot cup of coffee as you fly by the panoramic majesty of the Mahalangur Himalayan landscape. A close encounter with the Mt Everest is a once in a lifetime experience for most people. Okay, so you didn't quite trek up the 8848 meters, but hey! it's still an Instagram moment, and a memorable one at that! The tour takes you across the range with views of the peaks from their South Side. You see the Everest in the middle, flanked on her sides with Mt Nuptse and Mt Lhotse, the 2nd highest in the range.

The mountains of Shartse, Baruntse, Kanchungtse and Makalu will be visible on a clear day. And on the other side of Everest you will have Ama Dablam at 6856m, the Pumo Ri at 7161m, the Gyachung Kang at 7952m and far away in the distance Cho Oyu at a majestic 8188m. It's a fabulous sight of some of the world's most majestic snow-capped peaks, framed over a backdrop of a most beautiful blue sky and under a series of soft wispy clouds.

And while you sit back coasting over the Sagarmatha National Park, with the Mt. Everest as close as you could ever see, do please raise a toast to our own Tenzing Norgay, who reached the summit of Everest on May 29, 1953, becoming the first person to stand atop the world's highest mountain.
