Dumb struck silence is one way to figure out passengers’ minds when boarding the plane for an enchanting mountain flight for a ‘let’s kiss each other’’ close-up of the highest mountains on earth. Because you sure don’t want to go home without seeing the late Sir Edmund Hillary’s Everest for what it truly is, do you? It has almost become a status symbol because as soon as you touch the green grass of home, the first question you’re probably asked is, ‘did you see Mt. Everest?’ it has almost become your bragging right. Doing the trek is a tough journey that takes weeks and then how much of hiking practice have you been doing of late? Are you ready to go the yard, mind you, its not the mile, its hiking rugged trails for something like 5-8 hrs in a single day. But then you don’t have to worry, life always offers solutions. Simply go for a mountain flight, where everyone has their very own window seat to ogle at the Himalayas upfront, it’s so close you feel you could almost touch it from the window of your plane.
You get to see all the ten star peaks of Nepal while some diehard climbers are still struggling to pronounce the names of these peaks. It’s No wonder mountain fly-bys have become a clarion call and a mandatory tourist attraction in Nepal. All you need to do is wake up early in the morning and make a beeline for the domestic airport (flights leave between 6-8 am), settle into your seat, take out that video camera, and click away right to the clouds. The captain flies you at eye level for that super viewing experience. If your pictures go awry, you only have yourself to blame. Flights do not have wi-fi to upload your pictures to facebook yet, but you can do that first thing once you hop off the plane while enjoying breakfast. So what are you waiting for, Mate? THESE AREN’T JUST MOUNTAIN FLIGHTS OF FANTASY, this is for real, down to earth core stuff with mind boggling experiences you aren’t going to forget anytime soon!
