EVEREST MOUNTAIN FLIGHT

Regular flights are conducted daily from Kathmandu towards the Himalayan Range in the North and East of Kathmandu. The flight generally takes off in the morning and lasts for one full hour. This is the quickest way to get a close look at Mt. Everest, the highest mountains in the world (pictured above). Other mountains that can be viewed at close range are Nuptse (7879M), Lhotse (850 M), Cho Oyu (8000M), Makalu (8475M) and Kanchenjunga (8584M). Shangri-La Air BEECHCRAFTS 1900Cand Dornier-228 aircraft for Mountain Flights. Both aircraft have large and clear windows and provide superlative sights of the Great Himalayan Range.

Shangri-La Air mountain flights are spectacular than any other operation in Nepal because:
The mountains are at eye level for your maximum viewing pleasure. The Dornier-228 shows you Mt. Everest by virtually flying into the lap of Everest (Khumbu Valley). Unless you decide to take up mountaineering, this is the closest view of Mt. Everest that you'll ever see.

Unlike in other aircraft, the non-tinted Dornier provides you with excellent opportunity to photograph the mountain and keep your memories fresh forever. Sharper and clearer vision of the Himalayan Range is where your money is best spent. The ideal wing position of both aircraft means that you have an unobstructed view of the mountain ranges.

Shangri-La Air operates one full hour of mountain flight.

Hand in hand with its technical excellence, Shangri-La Air onboard service is refreshingly different and with that gentle touch of Nepalese hospitality.

Mountains Seen on Everest Mountain Flight
Dorje Lakpa, Chhoba Bhamare, Gauri Shanker, Melungtse, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and even glimpses of the Tibetan Plateau.

Other Mountain Flights:
Shangri-La Air also conducts Annapurna Mountain Flight and the Jomsom Mountain Flight. Both these are available on a charter basis only. You are requested to kindly contact us for more details on such flights. The regular flight between Pokhara and Jomsom is like a mountain flight itself. Passing between the spectacular Fish-tail Mountain, Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri mountains, this flight is an experience in itself.
