I was in Nepal last month for personal purposes. I love snow and hills. So I booked Mountain Flight through facebook. I found Luxury Holidays Nepal a little responsive and communicative.
As my guesses, Luxury Holidays Nepal did my trip so nice. I was lucky that the sky and climate are clear and sunny that day. It was so amazing views of the mountains and peaks in the Everest region. Several peaks towering one by one was so exciting to look from the Himalayan sky above the cloud.
Thank you Luxury Holidays Nepal for such a wonderful trip. Thank you so much!Published: Wednesday, August 7, 2019
I recently took the mountain flight with this team in Kathmandu. This is the first time we are visiting Nepal. Coordinating the trip through via email before we landed here with this team was helpful. They are very fast with their reply. So they came met me at my hotel collected the payment before the day of travel. Handed over an itinerary. The next day their team member came down to the hotel picked us and dropped at the airport for the tour. The tour was truly stunning. And dropped us safe back in hotel. This team truly deserves an applause for being professional. I would recommend their services to everyone who wants to do flight tours, trekking and etc.

Mountain Flight starts only in the morning, depending on the season. If you are planning to make it from March to October, the plane takes off from 6.00 am to 10.00 am and 7.00 am to 10.00 am in the winter season (November to February).
The flight usually lasts between 50 minutes up to an hour. The flight takes off from TIA, Kathmandu. During the flight, you will catch a glimpse of more than 20 highest peaks to the East of Nepal starting from the Langtang Lirung peak which is the closest peak to Kathmandu, then move towards Mt. Everest in the East and finally fly to Chamlang peak. From there, the plane takes a turn and the passengers get a second look at the view while they make their way back to Kathmandu.
The highlights of Everest scenic flights are as follows:
Everest Scenic flights go for around 1 hour. You will be picked up and dropped at hotels so yeah, it is reasonable to a little costly. But don't judge this trip with its cost; although the flight will be short but offers a great and a lifetime experience with lots of cherishing moments.
Comparing on the basis of Cost, the Everest Helicopter tour is quite expensive than Everest Scenic Flight. More than in Everest Scenic flight you will only admire the Himalayan beauty from a close angle but in Everest Heli Tour you physically appear in the Everest region where you have enough time to catch up all the scenes and snap phots.
