Overview

One of the world's most exclusive tours(Everest Express or Mountain Flights). Can the magic of flight ever be carried by words? Why do you want to climb the Everest? was the question which prompted the now world famous quip,because its there!
We have for decades tried to comprehend what it is that drives men to push themselves to the limits of their physical and mental endurance. Many have tried but failed to summit the Everest, the highest peak in the world. It has been the exclusive realm of a select breed of mountaineers, always inaccessible to other mortals. The Everest Express, one of the worlds most exclusive tours, is a lifetime experience. A flight that takes you deep into the Himalayas, flying into valleys close to the rock face, as close as five nautical miles from the Everest itself. Now you can see the stunning beauty of nature; raw, undiluted and truly majestic.

Know More about this tour

5:30 am: Driver will come to pick you up from your hotel to drop you at the airport.

6:30 am: Your flight will take off for the mountain flight. As the plane moves along, the mountains come closer and closer. Then appears the mountain that is not only prominent in sight but also in spiritually Gauri-Shankar. As the plane moves towards the land of the rising sun, the eastern Himalaya a succession of glorious mountains follow. Melungtse, a Plateau like mountain stretches up to 7,023 m, Chugimago at 6,297 m is still a virgin, waiting to be climbed. At 6,956 m, Numbur mountain resembles a breast, maternal source in the sky providing pure milk to the Sherpas of the Solu Khumbu. Next is Karyolung, an intensely white mountain that at 6,511 m gleams with the rising sun. Cho-Oyu is the eighth highest mountain in the world. Reaching a height of 8,201 m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft. Finally, theres Everest (8,848m) itself, known as 'Sagarmatha' by the Nepalese and 'Chomolungma' by the Tibetans. Much has already been written about Everest, but to actually witness it face to face during a mountain flight is something else. Even while it looms there in front of the eyes, it remains an enigma, this highest spot on earth.

7:30 am: Your flight will land at the airport.

8:00 am: The driver will drop you at your hotel.

    I specifically booked Buddha Air because reviews were much much better compared to the other airlines and it was significantly more expensive as well. They instead rebooked my flight to Shree airlines and didn’t even tell me or ask me if that was okay which i found out when i got to the airport. Also, there was no English guide as promised. This is a pure scam and should not be on . When I contacted the provider, they said I booked too last minute, I booked two whole days prior which gives them plenty of time to notify me of any changes. Lastly, why are they even offering something they can’t fulfill. This is classic bait and switch. I wouldn’t recommend Shree airlines for these mountain flight because the plane smells bad, dirty, and flight time is less than an hour. Worst of all, instead of using the plane comms to announce we are approaching Everest, they go around telling people that we are about to pass Everest, crazies part is that by the time the flight attendant got to me and the guest front of me, she said “oh its too late”. I will be reporting these people to Viator.

    Best experience, pickup on time. Flew with Shree Airlines. Sky was clear with the best view from Mt Everest

    Went on the Budda air tour which departs from Kathmandu at 615am. Early start as need to arrive at the airport for 5am (which is when it opens) Every customer had a window seat and it lasts for approx one hour. Good views of Everest for each side of the plane (one side has on the way there; and the other on the return). Aisle seats were kept empty during my flight, however we didn’t go in the cockpit for some reason - although no problems with that. You get given a basic leaflet regarding the surrounding mountains and very limited info for the flight attendant although you will know for sure when Everest is there! Very peaceful and surreal experience, would recommend this for everyone. Didn’t have the pick up option so can’t comment for that. Gets a bit cold so take a jumper

    HSJ are very professional and their Guide and Driver’s are very courteous and communicate well - we were a group of 6 brothers and we did Kathmandu sightseeing in a Toyota Hiace , Everest Scenic flight in Buddha air and Nagarkot & Bhaktapur sightseeing through Himalayan social journey. Rameshwar was very informative and had arranged all activities planned in advance - hats off and I would recommend HSJ any day for any family and friends

    I would give it less than 4 stars but I just wanted to show appreciation for the tour vendor who picked me up and dropped me off on time and facilitated the purchase of the plane ticket - thank you so much guys! The flight itself was rather disappointing. All the windows were dirty and my camera kept focusing on the stains on the glass. The plane flies far from the mountain range (for safety I’m assuming), it is nothing different than watching the ground from a regular plane. I did like how the flight attendants called out where we were on the map and the little souvenir at the end

    Excellent trip well worth it. Everything went smoothly. Airhostess were brilliant. I had a great time

    Very good tour. The ladies on the plane were very informative. The guy who picked us up was pleasant. The views were spectacular. Didn’t get any champagne at the end but every one got a window seat. Definitely worth doing

    I was in Nepal for two weeks and never saw the Himalaya because of clouds. This flight was one of the most beautiful things I experienced in a long time!

    To see mountains from the air! But nect time, fly for more thn 30 km closer to Everest! After this will be much nicer!

    It's a nice short flight to the Everest range. The good thing is that you can accommodate it even if you are in Kathmandu for a short trip. However, even if you miss it, it's not so bad because it's not a very close view of Everest. The range is visible but Everest is kind of hidden behind the other mountains and can be seen protruding on top of them. The plane turns back when you kind of get Everest's view. They handover a pamphlet showing the mountain peaks with their name. The staff is helpful and show you all the significant peaks in the view, they also handover a certificate to you in the end :-)
