Not only that you can also see the diverse landscape of the Khumbu region.

    • As we said before the Everest Flight is just the perfect option for those that are under time constraints in Nepal or would like to see the mountain range in its entirety from above before/after their long trekking adventure begins. Seeing the Himalayas from the air was remarkable and enchanting, there’s something about these forces of nature surrounding that is almost too overwhelming to behold. Thus, if you just want to see the mountain from far then it will totally going worth it. 
      If you are lucky enough, you will be able crystal clear sky and get a window site so that the 360 degree views of Mount Everest will be clearly visible. 

    • Generally, most of the Everest mountain flights take off from Kathmandu. Mainly the flight time is around 6 am in the morning time to beat the cloud cover. The airplane will all fly from the Tribhuvan International airport which is situated on the east side of the valley. Thus, make sure to arrive before the flight and try not to let your bag for your flight get crushed by the big backpacks loaded into the scanner. And the flight will last long for 45 minutes.  

    • The question might hit you as all the planes look similar. But don’t worry the ticket and boarding pass of the plane will help you to find your plane easily. When we were called, we all piled onto an airport transfer bus and headed out to our plane. Similarly, you will able to get a small booklet where whole mountain ranges are named there which will help to find out the name of the mountain that you will witness while traveling. If the hostesses are also happy to tell you the names of the mountains and of course, point out Everest!

    • Can I fly to Everest? You can't fly to Everest or Everest base camp. But you can fly to Kathmandu and Lukla, which are the closest airports to Everest base camp and where most people start their trek to Everest base camp.

    • Talking about the cost of the Mount Everest flight ranges from between $150 and $250 per person. Nevertheless, if you have a higher budget we also suggest watching the Everest helicopter tour starting at $950.

    • Each year in every November or sometime in October the Everest Skydive expedition organized one of the highest commercial free-fall skills in the world. Because the weather of the Khumbu region is clearer and considered to be the best weather during this month. At this time you can do sky-diving which costs you around $25,000. Many people jump from Syangboche.

    • The mountain is covered with hurricane-force winds and sub-freezing temperatures for much of the year. When coming to Everest, flying over it is very tough. Because it is simply too high and most of the pilots flying commercial jets commonly avoid flying over such peaks steering over the maze of some of the highest mountains in the world is extremely risky. 

    • Basically, the flight lasts between 50 minutes up to an hour. The planes take off either from Tribhuwan domestic airport in Kathmandu. If you are lucky enough you will be able to 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 moving towards Mt. Everest. 

    • Naturally, aircraft soar around 35,000 or 36,000 feet in the air. To put that in viewpoint, the peak of Mount Everest measures 29,029 feet. But this is why we have hassled cabins: so you don't feel as if you're literally trying to breathe on top of Mount Everest.

    • Speaking of helicopters it needs a certain amount of air for lift. On Everest, the level of oxygen is very low, due to the absence of air near the peak of Mount Everest makes it unbearable for most helicopters to get the compulsory lift and therefore fly.

    • If you're wondering if a helicopter can land on the top of Mount Everest then, the answer is yes. It has been done once before – but only once. Back on May 14, 2005, at 07:08 NPT in the early morning the (01:23 UTC), Delsalle set the world record for the highest altitude landing of a helicopter when his Eurocopter AS350 Squirrel touched down on the summit of Mount Everest.

    • Well, flying a drone over Mount Everest is allowed. However, to fly over it needs a drone of a good brand, a series of permits, and an excellent team with the required knowledge about all legal matters. The list of special permits required for flying a drone in the Everest trek is TIMS (Tourist Information Management System) and Sagarmatha National park permit. 

    • We all know, that Mount Everest is the world’s tallest peak. Thus, at the top of the peak, the level of oxygen is very low compared to the base camp. However, It is just possible for a man to reach the summit of Everest without supplementary oxygen, this can only be done at the expense of extreme hyperventilation and respiratory alkalosis, and even then the arterial PO2 is less than 30 Torr.

    • If you are curious whether normal people can climb Everest, then the answer is yes. However, to the summit, the peak one must have to be incredibly physically fit and have previous experience at high altitudes. Thus, think twice before making a plan for the summit of the peak.
