Mountain flight-seeing tour
Everest Experience is a close-encounter mountain flight-seeing tour with Buddha Air. Indulge in the panorama and maybe, just maybe, you might realize what you have been missing, or find what you have been looking for, all this while.
After all, a trip to Nepal would be incomplete without truly understanding what really makes it beautiful. The best times to catch a glimpse of the sparkling peaks are the months of winter from September to April. This is the time when the white snow sparkles brightly upon the mountains, with lakes and glaciers equally beaming with clear water flowing down from the Himalayas.
Nothing compares to the sheer beauty or awe the Himalayas has to offer. Take the mother of all mountain flights, the Everest Experience where we put you, one on one with Mt. Everest, so close that you can almost touch it.
Everest From Plane
The flight usually lasts between 50 minutes up to an hour. The planes take off either from TIA, Kathmandu. During the flight, you will catch a glimpse of 20 of the highest peaks to the East of Nepal starting from the Langtang Lirung peak which is the closest peak to Kathmandu, then move towards Mt. Everest in the East and finally fly to Chamlang peak. From there, the plane takes a turn and the passengers get a second look at the view while they make their way back to Kathmandu.
The mountain flight not only allows you to enjoy fantastic views but also helps you to understand the geography of Nepal. Although mountain flights do not have a long history, it has gained popularity among tourists for the beauty that it promises. Buddha Air provides mountain flights every day, early in the mornings, when the Himalayas views are the best!
