Other mountains that can be viewed at close range are Nuptse (7879 M), Lhotse (8501 M), Cho Oyu (8000M), Makalu (8475 M) and Kanchenjunga (8584 M). The mountain flight airlines have large and clear windows and provide superlative sights of the Great Himalayan Range.This mountain flight/Everest Experience is meant especially for those who don’t want to leave Nepal without touching the sacred and majestic Himalaya without walking several days.

The flight heads north east upon take off and soon after the emerald green or golden paddy fields below, depending on the time of the year, start giving way to green sub alpine forests.

Within the few minutes one is already flying above the snowy outlines of the greater Himalaya at an altitude of 2000 to 25000 feet above the ground and shows you the Himalayan Range like never before. Unless you decide to take up mountaineering, this is the closest view of Mt. Everest that you'll ever see

Mountains Seen on Everest Mountain Flight.

The first view will be north of Kathmandu Valley, starting with the 8013m high Shisha Pangma, the 14th highest mountain in the world, which is located in Tibet, a few kilometers from the border. Then come a series of several smaller peaks beginning with Dorje Lakpa (6966m) which looks like the figure eight and is located on the eastern edge of Langtang National Park, followed by Phurbi Ghyachu (6637m) on its right, the 5970m, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and even glimpses of the Tibetan Plateau, Choba Bhamare, Gauri Shankar (7134m) named after Lord Shiva and his consort, Melungtse (7181m) all part of the Rolwaling range.

The Nepali name Sagarmatha means “mother of the skies” while the Tibetan name Chomolongma means ‘mother of the universe”. In 1999 Everest was found to have grown by at least six inches since the last survey bringing its total height to 8850m.

Jutting up behind Lhotse (8516m) and Nuptse (7855m) Everest is as distinct as is it should be for a mountain of its status.
