Scenic Mountain Flight
Enjoy a scenic mountain flight during which you will experience the magisterial beauty of Mount Everest and other natural formations of unparalleled splendor.
Your 1 hour flight takes you East towards the spectacular Himalayas.
To the far left is Gosaithan, also called Shisha Pangma, standing at the majestic height of 8,013 m.
Immediately to the right of Gosaithan, is Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m), a mountain that looks like the number 8 lying down and covered with snow.
Then appears the mountain that is not only prominent in sight but also spirituality - Gauri-Shanker. Lord Shiva (Shanker) and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, at the proud height of 7,134m, and the summit had a history of unsuccessful attempts till 1979. Gauri-Shanker is sharp and very conspicuous during the mountain flight.
As the plane moves towards the land of rising sun, the eastern Himalaya, a succession of glorious mountains follow. Melungtse, a plateau like mountain, stretches up to 7,023 m. Cho-Oyu is the eighth highest mountain in the world; reaching a height of 8,201 m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft.
Marvel at stunning views of Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and Ama Dablam from the comfort of your window seat before returning to the Kathmandu Airport.
