Mountain flight in Nepal can come close to match the thrill of leaving on a mountain flight to meet the tallest mountains on earth. Mountain flights have become an accepted tourist option in Nepal and offer spectacular, panoramic views of the Himalaya in just one hour. As the mountain flight lifts up and heads toward the east, travelers do not have to wait long to find out what is in store for them. First to their far left visitors see Dorje Lakpa (6,966m) and also Shisha Pangma, standing at the majestic height of 8,013 m. Immediately to the right of Gosaithan, there become visible a mountain that looks like the number 8 lying down and covered with snow. To the right of Dorje Lakpa is Phurbi-Ghyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu Valley.
As the flight continues, the mountains come closer and closer. Next to come into view is Choba-Bharnare, the smallest one of the lot at 5,933m but singularly stubborn as it has never been climbed. Then appears the mountain that is not only prominent in sight but also in spirituality - Gauri Shanker. Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, at the proud height of 7,134m, and the summit had a history of unsuccessful attempts until 1979. Gauri-Shanker is sharp and very striking throughout the mountain flight. As the plane moves towards the land of the rising sun, the eastern Himalaya, a succession of glorious mountains follows. Melungtse, a plateau-like mountain, stretches up to 7,023 m. Chugimago at 6,297m is still a virgin, waiting to be climbed. Next is Karyolung, an intensely white mountain that at 6,511m gleams with the rising sun. Cho-Oyu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. Reaching a height of 8,201m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft.
The Everest area is next on the menu. Gyachungkang, at a magnificent height of 7,952m, a tremendously tricky climb. To the right of Gyachungkang is Pumori (7,161m).
