Mountain Flight

One of the quick and best ways to experience Himalayan peaks is by flying closer to them. There are several fixed-wing flights, helicopter charter flights, Ultralight aircraft and paragliding in Nepal.
The most famous and cost effective flight for Himalayan sightseeing is the fixed-wing flight to Mt Everest from Kathmandu. This is well known as mountain flight or the Everest sightseeing Flight.

I was connected to Rabi and have absolutely no regrets. I told him of wanting to see the Himalayas up close and he told me about the helicopter tour where you get to actually land at Annapurna Base Camp. Without skipping a beat, he booked everything for me including a car to pick me up. All I had to do was actually show up. And wow what an experience! To see the Himalayas up close to you was amazing.
