Mountain Flight

Visitors to Nepal restricted by time or lack of physical capacity can still experience the huge expanse, awe-inspiring height, majesty and power of the Himalayan mountain range offered by a panoramic mountain flight from Kathmandu to Mount Everest and return – all in little more than an hour. We find just as many hardy trekkers also take this opportunity to view the Himalaya as those travellers unable to trek the high trails.

Mountain flights normally start with an early morning pick-up from your hotel and a quick drive to the Kathmandu Airport domestic terminal. Flights are conducted in comfortable and pressurised twin-engine 12 to 16 seat aircraft. During the flight passengers are all provided with an opportunity to take in the mountain panorama from the wide-view windshield of the pilot’s cockpit. This is a great opportunity to take some spectacular photographs and to really take in the full spectacle of the ice-capped mountain summits and deep alpine valleys. The view from the central plains of India to the highest mountain summit on Earth is something that mountain-flight passengers never forget. On completion of your flight you will be quickly transported back to your hotel, usually by mid-morning, leaving most of the day available for your other plans. 

Just contact us at Langtang Ri if you would like us to incorporate this fantastic mountain flight into your trek or tour itinerary.
