The "Everest Experience" mountain flight in Nepal is a popular air tour that allows you to witness the majestic Himalayan peaks, including Mount Everest, up close. It's a shorter and more accessible alternative to trekking to Everest Base Camp, giving you the opportunity to experience stunning mountain landscapes in a relatively short period of time. Here are more details about the Everest Experience mountain flight:

Best Time: The best time to experience the Everest Experience flight is during the clear months of winter (December to February) spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), however nowadays weather changed and you could also do it in summer time (June to August as well), as well. These seasons offer the best visibility and weather conditions for optimal viewing.
