As with any form of air travel, consider the environmental impact of increased air traffic in sensitive mountain regions. Nature Trail as a responsible tour operator, we organize some every year tree plantation activity in the mountain regions of Nepal and promote responsible tourism practices to minimize their ecological footprint.
Departing Kathmandu domestic airport early in the morning before the clouds build up in the sky, Nature Trail Travels' representative takes to the Kathmandu domestic airport. This is an hour’s flight around the Everest region with mind-blowing views of all the major peaks in the Everest region.

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.

Taking a mountain flight over Everest can be a truly unique and awe-inspiring experience, providing you with the opportunity to witness the majestic Himalayan peaks, including Mount Everest, from the comfort of an aircraft, amazing!
Well, whether a mountain flight is worth or not, it depends on your personal preferences, budget, and circumstances. If you have a strong desire to witness the Himalayan peaks but lack the time or physical ability to trek to higher altitudes, a mountain flight could be a great option. The experience of seeing these towering mountains up close and the opportunity to take stunning photographs can be very rewarding.
However, if budget is a concern, or if you prioritize more immersive and active experiences, you might consider alternatives like trekking to Everest Base Camp or exploring other regions of Nepal. Ultimately, the decision should align with your interests, priorities, and resources.
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. Mountain flights are operated every day, early in the mornings, when the Himalayas views are the best!
While on board, you will receive a 'Himalayan Peaks' map from our flight attendant. This map contains information about the different peaks you will see during the mountain flight. You will also get a briefing from the flight attendant about the visible mountains. You will see stunningly beautiful mountains that are above 8000 meters such as Cho-Oyu, Shisha Pangma, Mt. Everest, and Lhotse from a guaranteed window seat on the aircraft.
To commemorate your once-in-a-lifetime experience to the top of the world, Nature Trail Travels, give out a personalized Everest Experience certificate to each passenger after the completion of the flight.
