What people say about the mountain flight experience?

Ffitzkew wrote in TripAdvisor that “This was a great flight to see the Himalayas and Mt. Everest. If you are looking to enhance your experience this a remarkable time. The key is to manage your expectations. Weather is always changing. We had to wait 1.5 hours to board and lift off. That may be rather normal. They book the window seats only on both sides of the plane. Outbound the mountain are on your left. The plane will turn left and the right side will see the mountains on the return trip. You are given a map marking the mountains. The flight staff will help you identify the mountains. Understand you will still be a food distance from Everest. You will need to zoom in but the view was spectacular. The plan is very comfortable and we cruised at 21000ft.”

Why you should take a mountain flight?

It is affordable as compare to Trekking.

To have such a big view of Mt.Everest, you need to take at least 4-5 day’s trekking in around Khumbu Region. That cost would be at least 1000$. So mountain flight is the cheapest way to get a beautiful view of the Himalaya (Langtang lirung to Mt.Everest).

Perfect if you are in short time

Every people around the world, they have a dream to see the top of the world but they don’t have enough time to trek all the way towards Everest Base Camp. Mountain flight is the perfect option to see and feel the superiority of all around. To have this flight one morning will be enough, if you are in Kathmandu.

Great Comfort

Mountain flight is very good alternate to trekking. So many people have not habit to trek and thinks they are not fit in the high altitude. Sleep well in the comfortable altitude, wake up little early and take an hour flight and get back same point is a great comfort rather than have a day’s walk in high altitude to full fill your dream of seeing the top of the world.

Best season to take the mountain flight ?

It is always different experience with different season  when weather is clear on the mountain region. For sure , if you do not see mountain your flight cost will refund.
