- Easy way to see the world’s highest mountain
- Spectacular views guaranteed
If you’ve ever wanted to get a close look at the summit of Mount Everest, but lack the wherewithal to climb the world’s tallest peak, then here is the answer: a memorable scenic flight that affords simply astounding views of Everest and the Himalayas, including Lhotse and Makalu, the fourth and fifth-highest mountains in the world respectively. Board your plane for a flight lasting between 45 and 60 minutes, with plenty of scope for photographing the legendary Everest - 18-seaters are used, giving everyone the chance of a window seat.
It was all the way back in 1953 that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing became the first men to conquer Everest. Now you can see what they saw, with no danger of frostbite, or even getting out of breath. Expect to be blown away up there - the panoramic vistas are out of this world. Remember that weather conditions can delay the flight - if the forecast for your flight is risky, bring a book or tablet to the airport with you.
