Mountain flights in Nepal From Kathmandu

Updated on April 24, 2024

Mountain flight is the breathtaking experience of snow-covered Himalayas for a captivating encounter of the highest peaks in Nepal via aircraft. For many years people sought the easiest way to view mountains in very limited time for those who are restricted by their schedule to go trekking. There are flights that offer the mouth-watering panoramic encounter of the highest peaks in Nepal.

Nepal is blessed with eight of the highest fourteen peaks in the world. Despite the gifts of nature, we have not been able to utilize them because of geographical difficulties. Mountain flights offer easier access to reach remote destinations by air. Such flights take nearly an hour at the most for viewers.

Currently, there are four different companies that offer mountain flights on a regular basis:

  1. Shree Airlines
  2. Yeti Airlines
  3. Tara Airlines
  4. Buddha Airlines
