Nepal is the home to varying mountain ranges including the highest peak of the world, Mount Everest, positioned at the altitude of 8848.86 meters above sea level. Other high mountains which catch the eyes of visitors include Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail mountain), Gangapurna, Ama Dablam, Annapurna, and many more. The beauty of Nepal lies in the high mountains and their sparkling shine, which is spread all over the world as the JEWEL OF NEPAL.

Likewise, it offers the exhilarating panorama of Himalayan ranges like Lhotse, Makalu, Nuptse, etc., beautiful natural topography, Gokyo valley with its lakes (Gokyo Lakes), and outstanding Himalayan Glaciers and icefalls of the Khumbu region. It takes you as close to the Himalayas as possible which is one of the major attractions for visitors in Nepal.

    We, the group of four friends, had gone for a flight over Mount Everest in the summer of 2018. It was an amazing flyover tour towards the highest peak of the world. While we started the trip, the sky was a little gloomy but the time we were in the sky, the environment cleared and we got a remarkable mountain experience. It was like we were flying with the white mountains. I suggest short-timed travelers grab this service while in Nepal.

But the season and weather of the surrounding area should be checked at first and the bag should be packed according to that. We recommend you to wear the clothes as per weather conditions and temperature of the surrounding.

Freedom of panorama is the legalized protocol for the allowance of clicking photographs and videos. According to it, visitors are allowed to capture photos and videos of their choice.

How important is gratitude and humble gesture amid flights to white mountains?

It is necessary to behave like a human while traveling, whether it is in the country or outside of the country.

The activities like jumping, moving here and there (when the flight is moving), etc. should be strictly prohibited.
