Make your trip to Nepal even more incredible: enjoy the unique experience of seeing the highest mountains in the world from a bird's eye view on this scenic flight over Mount Everest and the Himalayas.
Mount Everest Flight Itinerary
Having been picked up from your hotel in Kathmandu, you'll be taken to the Nepali capital's aerodrome, where your adventure begins. Here you'll board a light aircraft, which will take off into the skies above Nepal in the direction of the highest peaks on Earth.
Once you're in the air, you'll be given a map illustrating the exact locations of the Himalayan mountains that you'll see throughout your 50-minute flight, making it much easier to identify the different peaks from the cabin window.
While you soar over breathtakingly beautiful landscapes, seeing the dramatic mountain range from a bird's eye view, you'll be able to see legendary peaks like Mount Everest, at 8,848 metres (29,029 feet) tall; Kanchenjunga at 8,586 metres (28,169 feet) and Shishapangma at 8,027 metres (26,335 feet) above sea level. A truly incomparable experience that you'll never forget - make sure you bring your camera!
After touching back down in Kathmandu's aerodrome, you'll be taken back to your hotel.
