Mountain Flight in Nepal

For those who are restricted by time or other considerations from going trekking, there are mountain flights that offer a panoramic encounter with the highest peaks on the earth. The plane departs from Kathmandu and flies alongside the Himalaya to give you eye-level views of the snow peaks and then brings you back in one hour. Cruising close to the awesome massifs of rock and ice, the flight presents a mind-boggling sight.

As the aircraft takes off and heads towards the east, you don’t have to wait too long to find out what’s in store for you. First to your far left, you see Gosaithan, also called Shisha Pangma, standing at the majestic height of 8013 m. Immediately to the right of Gosaithan, there appears Dorje Lhakpa (6966 m), a mountain that looks like the number 8 lying down and covered with snow. To the right of Dorje Lhakpa is Phurbi-Shyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu valley.

As the plane glides along, the mountains come closer and closer. Next on the vision is Choba-Bhamare, the smallest one of the lot at 5933 m but singularly stubborn as it has never been climbed. Then appears the mountain that is not only prominent in sight but also in spiritually – Gauri-Shanker. Lord Shiva (Shanker) and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, at the proud height of 7134 m. and the summit had a history of unsuccessful attempts till 1979. Gauri-Shanker is sharp and very conspicuous during the mountain flight. As the plane moves towards the land of the rising sun, the eastern Himalaya, a succession of glorious mountains follow. Melungtse, a plateau-like mountain, stretches up to 7023 m. Chugimago at 6297 m is still a virgin, waiting to be climbed. At 6956 m, Numbur mountain resembles a breast, the maternal source in the sky providing pure milk to the Sherpas of the Solukhumbu. Next is Karyolung, an intensely white mountain that at 5611 m gleams with the rising sun. Cho-Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world. Reaching a height of 8201 m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft.

Next on the Menu is Gyachungkang, at a majestic height of 7952 m, considered an extremely difficult climp. To the right of Gyanchungkang is Pumori (7161 m). As you get closer to Everest, there is Nuptse (7855 m), which means West Peak, signifying its direction from Everest. Finally there’s Everest (8848 m) itself,, known as Sagramatha by the Nepalese and Chomolungma by the Tibetans. Much has already been written about Everest, but no actually witness it face to face during a mountain flight is something else. Even while it looms there in front of the eyes, it remains as enigma, this highest sport on earth. The spectacular mountain flights are offered by number of airlines such as Buddha Air, Guna Air, Yeti Air and Agni Air, we offers these Mountain flights through-out the year.
