Each week at Tinggly, we try to highlight one amazing experience from across our something-for-everyone gift box collections. This week it’s the turn of the ‘Ultimate Collection’ gift box and an unforgettable scenic flight to the summit of Mount Everest.

Not everyone will get the opportunity to make it to the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on the planet. In fact, in the history of climbers attempting to summit the peak, less than 5,000 different individuals are lucky enough to be able to claim that honor.

But now you can be one of those lucky ones who actually make it to the ‘Roof of the World’.

However, before you rush out and start equipping yourself with crampons, ropes, and all the other paraphernalia associated with the art of mountain climbing, Tinggly has some good news.

The good news is that you no longer have to be a highly experienced mountain with a bulging bank account – the fees alone for the honor of attempting to climb the mountain can be anything up to $50,000 – you can now take a short 1-hour flight that takes gives you unforgettable views of the summit.

On this short hop into the heart of the Himalayas, you’ll also have the chance of viewing Lhotse and Makalu – the fourth- and fifth-highest mountains in the world respectively.

The flight, which lasts between 45 an 60 minutes gives you the most amazing opportunity to see the famous peaks of this revered mountain range from a unique perspective. Plus, as the flight is onboard a compact 18-seater aircraft everyone has a chance to have a window-seat view.

Not everyone will get the opportunity to make it to the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point above sea level on the planet (yes, we know about Hawaii’s Mauna Kea). In fact, in the history of climbers attempting to summit the peak, less than 5,000 different individuals are lucky enough to be able to claim that honor.

In fact, our amazing Tinggly travel ambassadors, Rob, and Joli from the Dipkiss Travels blog who tried this incredible experience for themselves had this to say. “Considering that the usual way to see Everest is to spend thousands of dollars while also taking 2 weeks off, this short 1-hour flight is definitely worth it!” 

You can read their spectacular full report here.

You can join the likes of legendary figures like Sherpa Tenzing and Sir Edmund Hillary who became the first men to conquer Everest but without the dangers which they and the many others who have followed in their wake have faced.

In fact, the only danger that you may face is the feeling of being overwhelmed and overawed by the whole amazing experience. To make the occasion even more special your flight tickets will be delivered to your hotel, and your transfer to the aircraft will be by private vehicle. How’s that for service?

Once you’ve completed your once-in-a-lifetime adventure you will be awarded a Certificate of Completion to place proudly on the wall of your home or office – making you the envy of everyone who sees it.

However, you should be aware, weather conditions may not always allow the flights to depart as scheduled. If you are unable to reschedule your flight, a refund is always possible – minus the charge for airport transfer. Flights are open all year round, with the best and most recommended times for viewing the summits being between May and September.

Just imagine the stories and memories you’ll have after such an incredible and unique experience. Happy Travels!
