A Himalayan Mountain flight is done by various domestic airlines; we take-off from Kathmandu airport in the early morning for an hour’s worth of spectacular mountains scenery. This flight is suitable for all travelers, especially for those who are restricted by time or other factors but really want to get near to the mountains as possible and have a panoramic view of the Himalayas in just an hour.
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. First to their far left visitors see Gosaithan, also called Shisha Pangma at the majestic height of 8,013 m. Immediately to the right of Gosaithan, there appears Dorje Lakpa (6,966 m). 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 highlight is Gauri-Shankar. It is told that Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are to protect this mountain, at the proud height of 7,134.
As the plane moves further, the eastern Himalaya follow. The Melungtse plateau stretches up to 7,023 m. But is goes higher fast. Cho-Oyu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. Reaching a height of 8,201 m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft. As passengers get closer to Everest, there’s 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.
