Great views
Jason_W
, Dec 2020
It was a great experience. We had a chance to see top mountains from both sides of the plane, including the cockpit view. My only complaint is that some seats have partially obstructed views due to the jet engine. Fortunately we were able to move around mid-flight.

Everest scenic flight on Buddha Air
Francisco D
, Dec 2019
I was a bit disappointed with the flight. First, the flight, Buddha Air 600 was delayed by one hour and took off at 7:30am, instead of the schedule of 6:30am. Weather was perfect so this wasn’t the cause of the delay. We only boarded the bus for the plane at 7am after waiting inside the terminal for more than an hour. However, instead of bringing us to our plane, we were kept inside the bus until 7:15am. I could see the plane we used was being repositioned as well as other planes around it. Meantime, no explanation was being given as to the cause of the delay. The sad part was instead watching the beautiful sun rising over the Himalayas as advertised, we watched it inside the airport terminal due to the delayed flight. The flight took only 45 minutes instead of the 1 hour mentioned in brochures. As soon as the plane caught sight of the Everest peak, the pilot started turning the plane back to Kathmandu. Finally, the pictures shown in ads makes it appear the plane flies over the Himalayas. In reality, the plane flies above green mountains where the various Himalayas mountain peaks can be viewed.

Credible flight and service
Thomas S

Our flight was canceled twice due to normal weather conditions experienced in September. Most times we were taken care of with five star treatment from the hotel and returning to the hotel. Our mountain flight schedule with Sheehan airllines operate a regional jet allowing us to get above the clouds which many of the smaller sightseeing planes were not able to do. We had 15 passengers on the regional jet and we’re allowed to move from side to side and spend as much time in the cockpit as we wanted.

A once in a lifetime opportunity

I thoroughly enjoyed flying by Everest. While the plane didn't get as close to the mountain as I expected, it was still awesome to see the highest place on earth. The champagne that the crew offered was a nice touch.

Great experience. It is a little expensive though and the photos are quite misleading because you do not reach so near the mountain

Good smooth trip experience

When I purchased this excursion, I had no idea what to expect. Viator assigned me to a local tour operator at Kathmandu called Himalayan Social Journey. Upon my arrival at Kathmandu hotel, HSJ were very easy to contact over WhatsApp and immediately informed me of the trip logistics. We left hotel at sharp 5:30 am and arrived shortly at Kathmandu airport's domestic terminal. The ticketing, check-in, security check process was a breeze, and within 15-20 minutes we were off in a bus headed to the plane on tarmac. There were about 20 people in the group and all had window seats. The Yeti Airlines flight is about 45 minutes duration and people from both sides of the plane get to view the entire mountain range consisting of many well-known peaks right up till reaching Everest. One thing to be aware of about the flight is that you will not be flying over or around Everest, but will be seeing it from a distance. With a good camera zoom, the pictures can still be clear enough to impress anyone. For a solo traveler like me who is happy to simply see Everest with my own two eyes, the experience was worth the price I paid. The trip is short and sweet and I was back at the hotel at 8:30 am. Well done to Himalayan Social Journey who made it such a pleasant experience.

The only possibility to see the Himalayas

Except for a considerable delay of pickup from the hotel and the start of the plane was a perfect experience. But in Nepal, the delay is the rule.

Didn’t even do it
Carol_K
, Jul 2018
There was No confirmation so I called and the person did not speak English. My husband felt very uncomfortable (it was a surprise) and since he’s in the aviation business I went with his gut and didn’t go. The same morning of our flight the newsapaper delivered to our hotel room stated that the safety record of the sight seeing planes are very questionable. Viator should not offer this tour and refund my money.
