Ltd offer daily Mountain or Himalayan Flights for those clients, who are very much restricted by time or other considerations from going trekking in Nepal and want to see the spectacular view of the Himalayan Peaks. You will have panoramic views of Himalayan Peaks and landscapes of one hour by Mountain Flight.
In one hour duration, you will be experiencing the Himalayas at such close range it will seem as though you could reach out and touch them. The plane departs from Kathmandu and flies alongside the Himalaya to give you eye level views of the snow peaks with cruising close to the awesome massifs of rock and ice. When the plane takes off and heads towards the east you will see Shishapangma (8,013m), to the right of Gosiankunda, there appears Dorje Lakpa (6,966m) and to the right of Dorje Lakpa is Phurbi Chyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu Valley. As the plane glides along, the mountains come closer and closer with a panoramic view of Choba- Bhamare (5,933m) with a stubborn as it has never been climbed. Then appears Mt. Gauri Shankar (7,134m) the sharp and very conspicuous mountain during the mountain flight and the mountain of spiritual Lord Shankar or Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain and have an unsuccessful summit till 1979. As the plane moves toward the eastern Himalaya the land of the rising sun follow Melungtse (a plateau like mountain and stretches up to 7023m). Mt. Numbur (6,956m) resembles a breast, the maternal source in the sky providing pure milk to the Sherpas of the Solukhumbu. The next vision is Kayrolung (6,511m) an intensely white mountain that gleams with the rising sun. Cho-Oyu (8201m) is the sixth highest mountain in the world. It appears stunningly beautiful from the Aircraft. Next in the menu is Gyachungkang (7,952m) and to the Right of Gyachungkang is Pomori (7,161m). As you get closer to Mt. Everest, there is Nuptse (7,855m) which is west ridge of Everest. Finally there is Mt. EVEREST (8,848m) itself, known as Sagarmatha by the Nepalese and Chomolungma by the Tibetans. Witness it face to face during the Mountain flight is something else. Even while in looms there in front of the eyes, it remains an enigma, this majestic spot on Earth.
