One of the must-see landmarks of Nepal is of course the highest peak in the world– Sagarmatha (also known as Mount Everest). One awe-stricken silence can come close to matching the experience of going on a mountain flight to encounter the tallest mountains of this earth. Mountain flight offers a panoramic view of the Himalaya in just one hour. Even those visitors who like the rigors of a trek still don’t miss the opportunity to “conquer” the mountains in one fell swoop. This one hour flight takes you to the eastern Himalayan ranges of Nepal, that holds some of the highest peaks in the world including Mt. Everest. The flight is an altogether different feeling as one comes face to face with world’s tallest and most enigmatic of Mountains.
