Flying above the Himalayas … (Sunday still – winter wonderland )

Sunday Stills -winter wonderland

The following picture  of Mt Everest and the surrounding ranges , was taken on a Mountain Flight in Nepal . The mountain flight is an enthralling experience , which allows us to get  up close , with the Himalayas ,  including the Mt Everest .

This  one hour long flight  , provides one with a luxurious Himalayan experience.  Mountain flights are offered by several airlines in the morning from the domestic airport in   Kathmandu . Flights from Kathmandu reveal the  Eastern Himalayas  , while flights from  Pokhara , take you on a bird’s eye view of the Western Himalayas .

We took the Buddha Air flight from Kathmandu and had a great experience viewing the Himalayas , being informed from times to time about the various ranges by the  co-pilot .
