Mountain Flight

Trip Facts

  • Flight starts early in the morning
  • Mt. Everest 20 miles from your window
  • Witness fantastic Himalayan peaks, lakes and glaciers
  • 50 minutes flight with guaranteed window seat

Mountain flight is primarily about pure awe and wonder. Oneself being comfortably seated, and having the raw and rugged natural mega structures reveal themselves in their entirety before one’s eyes can be quite overwhelming. What’s more, you can have snow-capped peaks glisten right before your eyes, virtually at your arm’s length, while yourself sipping from your cup. Exhilaration it generates can’t be overstated, and adrenaline rush will be all over you.

We arrange the Mountain Flight under the category the Everest Experience where we put you one on one with the Mt. Everest so close that you can almost touch it. We do it with Buddha Air.
The flight begins early morning so that you’ll be hovering among the snow-clad peaks shining at the sunrise. The Gosaithan, also known as the Shisha Pangma, is the first peak your eyes will meet, followed by the Dorje Lakpa and the Phurbi-Ghyachu. Interestingly, the Dorje Lakpa looks like the numeral 8.

Furthermore, as you keep gliding, the next peak Choba Bhamare, also called the Virgin Mountain, since it has never been summited, will come to your view. It will be succeeded by the Gauri- Shankar. Thereafter, you will be zooming towards the sixth-longest mountain chain in the world that will reward you firstly with a plateau-like mountain Melungtse which will be soon joined by the Chugimago, the Numbur, the Karyolung, and the Cho-Oyu. The Cho-Oyu is the 8th highest mountain in the world with an altitude of 8,201 meters. The mountains in this range will appear absolutely stunning.
You will fly past a couple more wonders, the Gyanchungkang and the Pumori, which will conjure up your climactic entrance into the Everest region. You will soon be having breathtaking experience of the Everest from the closest possible proximity, yet safe. Moreover, the plane will take a trip around Mt. Everest so that you can view its all sides.
You will be aided with maps to identify which mountain is which, and also, there will be an attendant to guide you through all this.
