Introduction: Mountain Flight in Nepal

Mountain flight in Nepal is one of the great ways to capture a panorama of the Himalayan Peaks at their closest, with views of Mt. Everest and other of the world's highest mountains, in the comfort of a spacious window-seated airplane. Mountain Flight offers a scenic and panoramic view of Mt. Everest and other 8000-meter peaks, providing a view of the Himalayas for non-trekkers.

We have created a mountain flight package that operates generally from early morning when mountain views will be at their best, where Himalayan weather can be unpredictable, but most of the months mentioned above will be a good time for this great Mountain flight.

Early in the morning, our staff will receive you at the hotel before your breakfast, have an early breakfast, or carry a packed breakfast to consume at the airport or on the flight. You can also have a late breakfast after the mountain flight.

On reaching Kathmandu Domestic Airport and getting the boarding pass, enter past the security check where lighter-matching-pen knives and sharp items are not allowed in hand or day packs.

After the security procedure, greeted by airline staff, we boarded our respective airplanes for a wonderful flight for an hour. Soon, the engine took off from the ground views of Kathmandu city with rolling green hills, and soon the mountains came into view.

The pilot or captain will announce the names of important and high peaks with enough time to view and click photos of the mountain range that extends from Manaslu, Ganesh, Langtang, Jugal Himal with Dorji Lakpa, Gaurishankar, Melung-Tse, Numbur, Cho-Oyu to Everest and as far Makalu and Kanchenjunga in an east direction.

No matter which side the plane is seated on, people on both sides can view the Panorama View of the Mountain, where Mt. Everest will be your highlight of the mountain flight.

What happens when you don’t have a window seat? How can someone be sure if they have a window seat?

Whether you are provided with a window seat on a mountain flight in Nepal depends on the airline or tour operator you choose. Some airlines and tour operators assign seats in advance, while others assign seats on a first-come, first-served basis. That’s why Trekking Planner Nepal is here: to make sure that your seats are secured.

If having a window seat is important to you, it's best to check with the airline or tour operator before booking your flight to find out about their seating policy. Some tour operators may charge an additional fee for a guaranteed window seat, while others may offer the option to purchase a window seat upgrade. The trek planner in Nepal makes sure that you have a window seat.

During the flight, it's also possible that some passengers may have obstructed views due to the plane's seating configuration or other factors. However, the flight crew usually makes an effort to ensure that all passengers have the opportunity to see the mountains and will often rotate the plane to allow for better viewing from different angles.
Trekking planner Nepal makes sure that your flight goes well without disruption; hence, we always provide window seats so that the views, the memories, and even the photographs that we click and bring along after the trek remain unobstructed.

How to prepare and what to pack for a mountain flight?

Preparing for a Everest mountain flight in Nepal involves several steps, including choosing the right clothing, packing the appropriate gear, and taking the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Here are some tips to help you prepare for a mountain flight in Nepal.

  • Clothing: Dress in layers, as temperatures can vary during the flight. Wear warm, comfortable clothes, and bring a windproof jacket to protect against the cold, high-altitude winds.
  • Footwear: Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes or boots with good traction. You may be walking on uneven terrain or stepping on snow or ice during the flight, so good grip is important.
  • Sun protection: Bring sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen to protect against the strong UV rays at high altitudes.
  • Camera: Don't forget your camera or phone to capture the stunning views of the mountains.
  • Medications: If you are prone to motion sickness or have other medical conditions, bring any necessary medications with you.
  • Water and Snacks: It's a good idea to bring some water and snacks to stay hydrated and energized during the flight.
  • Confirm flight details: Before the flight, confirm the flight schedule, pickup location, and any other details with the Trekking Planner Nepal and Nepal tour operator.
  • Altitude sickness: If you are prone to altitude sickness, request oxygen masks to avoid potentially serious medical problems. Consult with a doctor before the flight if you have any concerns.

In general, it's important to listen to the guidance of the flight crew and follow their instructions during the flight. Enjoy the experience and the stunning views of the mountains.
