About Mountain Flight
For the traveller who is unable to make a trekking
trip to the mountains either because of lack time
or physical fitness, or due to sheer want of the
adventure streak, there are Mountain Flight to
simulate the experience.
For millennia, the
Himalayas have had a grip on the world's imagination.
The sheer majesty and grandeur of the lofty, snow-capped
mountains have inspired awe, curiosity and reverence.
Tens of thousands
of visitors from the world over come to Nepal
annually, as English climber George Leigh Mallory
would say, because they are there. But not all
who visit the Himalayan kingdom can afford the
time and the stamina to be on the mountains. You
can, however, afford to be with us on our exhilarating
Himalayan Spectacular that shows you the mountains
from the closest range possible.
expect during the flight ?
The one hour flight takes you within
camera range of some of the highest peaks in the
world, and cruising this close to the awe-inspiring
massifs of rock and ice, is an out-of-this earth
experience. The aircraft takes off and heads eastward
and almost immediately, the peaks come into view.
The first peak that appears on your horizon is
the majestic Gosaithan, standing 8,013m tall.
To its right, appears Dorje Lhakpa (6,966m), looking
like a massive figure of 8, lying prone and covered
in snow. To its right is Phurbi Chyachu, which
looms over the Kathmandu Valley.
Next on your vision
is Choba Bhamare, rather small in this company
at 5,933m, but singularly stubborn as it remains
unconquered to this day. Then comes Mt. Gaurishanker
(7,134m), standing out sharp and conspicuous-Hindus
believe that Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati
protect this mountain.
As the flight move
toward the eastern Himalaya, a succession of majestic
mountains follows. Melungtse, with a plateau-like
top stand at 7,023m; Chugimago is at 6,297m, and
still remains to be scaled. Mt. Numbur stands
at 6,956m. Then, Karyolung, a gleaming-white mountain
at 6,511m, and cho-Oyu, the sixth highest in the
world at 8,021 m.
The last and most
exciting stretch of the journey takes you close
to the 7,952m tall Gyanchungkang, which is considered
an extremely tough climb. To its right is Pumori
at 7,161m and Nuptse at 7,855m. Finally, there
is Mt. Everest itself (8,848m), called Sagarmatha
by the Nepalese and Chomolungma by the Tibetans.
It is an altogether different feeling as one comes
face to face with the world's tallest and most
enigmatic of mountains. Mountain Flights are also
conducted from Pokhara.
