Even though mountain flights operate around the year, the best periods are February through April and October and November. The flights last an hour and the early morning flights have great views of the mountains and changing colours of the snow peaks as the sun rises. The cloud cover is low due to the cold of dawn. It is a truly picturesque flight over these stunning peaks.

The Himalaya Mountains are the youngest and highest mountain system in the world and extend across 2400 kilometres. The most well known peaks are Sagarmatha- popularly known as Mt. Everest (8848m), Kangchanjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), ChoOyu (8201m), in the east, Manaslu (8163m) in the central and, Dhaulagiri (8167m) and Annapurna (8091m) in the west.

As the aircraft lifts up and heads towards the the following peaks come into view: Gosaithan, also called Shisha Pangma at 8,013 meters; Dorje Lakpa at 6,966 meters that appears like the number 8 lying dow; Phurbi-Ghyachu, which looms over the Kathmandu Valley; Choba-Bhamare, the smallest at 5,933; Gauri-Shanker. Lord Shiva (Shanker) and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain.

Then its time to move on towards the eastern Himalayas: Melungtse, a plateau like mountain, stretches up to 7,023 meters; Chugimago at 6,297 meters; at 6,956 meters is Numbur mountain and Karyolung, an intensely white mountain of 6,511 meters; Cho-Oyu, the eighth highest mountain in the world; Gyachungkhang, at 7,952 meters, considered an extremely difficult climb; Pumori at 7,161 meters; Nuptse at 7,855 meters and Sagarmatha, the highest mountain in the world.
