Please Note: Everest Mountain Flight

The mountain flights are highly affected by the weather. Please expect delays, as well as frequent cancellation (even after 2-3 hours of delay) due to weather conditions and visibility. Also be aware, that even if the flight leaves Kathmandu, there may be additional delays in landing due to fog in Kathmandu, and cases where the flight may be redirected to Pokhara if the weather is too bad. So we highly recommend to reserve the flight in the morning and avoid making early afternoon plans, if you are planning to take a mountain flight.


Since the flight is dependent on the weather, both the weather in Kathmandu and Everest area have to be taken into consideration. If either is cloudy or have heavy fog, the flights may get delayed or get cancelled completely.
  • Check in the airport in Kathmandu early morning.
    The seat number is written in your boarding pass.
    Once the flight is ready, with fine weather, there is an announcement to board the flight will be made.
  • Window seats are guaranteed for all passengers.
    The flight takes off from Kathmandu and lands back at Kathmandu airport.
