Amazing Experience on Everest Mountain Flight in Nepal
« on: June 06, 2016, 02:49:58 AM »
The best thing I did on my trip to Nepal, is boarding a Mountain flight to Mt. Everest from Kathmandu, yes the flight to Everest. As they call it Everest Mountain flight, operated by domestic airlines in Nepal such as Buddh air and Yeti Airlines. But this is one of the best thing one can do in Nepal tour.

Read on to find out, Mountain flight to Everest was really worth it? or the experience on Mountain flight was really incredible?

So the day started at 5 am Nepal time, for the departure of Everest flight at 6:30 am. We left our place at around 5:15 am to reach airport at 5:30 am an hour before the departure time. The cost of Mountain flight was 9385 NPR(Nepali Rupees) from Buddha Air. Flight leaves departs from and arrives at Domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. When you reach Kathmandu airport domestic terminal, the view is quite refreshing, there are lot of trekkers hikers boarding to their flights to places like Lukla, Pokhara etc.

Half an hour before the departure, a bus took us to an 18 seater charted airplane, which would take us around Mount Everest.

Then it was time to step into the flight



And when we boarded the plane, it was a very small one and we could see Pilots and the full view of Cockpit

They actually give you an opportunity to step into Cockpit one by one and we asked one of the Pilot to click a photograph of Everest :)

Sharp at 6:30, the Mountain flight took off and within no time we were flying over those high mountains, An airhostess came and gave us a welcome candy and a Mountain flight route map and information pamphlet

Left side passengers got first chance to get a glimpse of those high Mountain range including Everest and I got my chance when the plane turned around to see the Everest but to my little disappointment, it got a bit cloudy by that time.

Finally after an hour or so after flying around Everest, we landed back to Kathmandu airport


They gave us a certificate for touching everest with Heart and mentioned on certificate that " I did not climb Mt. Everest... but touched it with my heart" to  make fliers feel good of their achievement of seeing Everest.
