Nepal is one of the country where u can fully experience the views of our beautiful mountains which would be a quite great experience to get in Nepal for the heart molding scenario.Mountain flights are a very convenient way of exploring the Nepalese Himalayan peaks without the hardship associated with treks and mountain climbs. All the domestic airlines offer various forms of mountain flights. Most mountain flights are done in the mornings and during all seasons except in the rainy season of June and July. Now mountain flights also take off for all the Himalayan ranges and also beyond to Mt. Kailash and the Mansarover Lake in western Tibet. Other forms of mountain flights are also catching up. Ballooning and ultra- and micro-lites provide such soaring flights. They offer spectacular views of the Himalayan panorama around Kathmandu Valley and Pokhara.


As the aircraft lifts up and heads towards the east, passengers don't have to wait too long to find out what is in store for them. There they are – the mountains, as they always have been.
First to their far left visitors see Gosaithan, also called Shisha Pangma, Standing at the majestic height of 8,013 m. Immediately to the right of Gosaithan, there appears Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m), a mountain that looks like the number 8 lying down and covered with snow. To the right of Dorje Lakpa is Phurbi-Ghyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu Valley.


As the plane moves along, the mountains come closer and closer. Next on the vision is Choba-Bhamare, the smallest one of the lot at 5,933 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-Shankar. Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, at the proud height of 7,134 m and the summit had a history of unsuccessful attempts till 1979. Gauri-Shankar is sharp and very conspicuous during the mountain flight.


As the plane moves towards the land of the rising sun, the eastern Himalaya full of glorious mountains follows this route. Melungtse, a Plateau – like mountain stretches up to 7,023 m, Chugimago at 6,297 m is still a virgin, waiting to be climbed. At 6,956 m,Next is Karyolung, an intensely white mountain that is at 6,511 m gleams with the rising sun. Cho-Oyu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. Reaching a height of 8,201 m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft.The Mountains are full of beauty showing you how they are proud be in such a way that people will say wow it's a beauty and peace which can be found looking at them.
Next on the List is Gyanchungkang,which is at a majestic height of 7,952 m, considered to be an extremely difficult climb. To the right of Gyanchungkang is Pumori mountain (7,161m). As passengers get closer to Everest.There's stood Mt.Nuptse (7,855 m), which means West Peak, signifying its direction from Everest.

Finally, there's Everest (8,848m) itself, known as Sagarmatha by the Nepalese and Chomolungma by the Tibetans which is known as the roof of the world. As there is too much thing to tell but it is said that seeing is beliving, but to actually witnessing it face to face during a mountain flight is something else. Even while it blooms there in front of the eyes, it fells as if the heaven is in the Earth.
