Hai guys, I recently did the everest flight tour and wanted to share along the experience with you. This is a 1hr flight tour along the Himalayan range starting from kathmandu airport. I booked the tour with their local airline Buddha Air from malaysia before i left. They tend to sell out quite fast. I booked 2 days before. It's kinda pricey for us malaysians but if you can afford it why not? Once in a lifetime experience. Total damages were 194USD.

Those planning to go to nepal try not to go mid year as the monsoon starts and a lot of activities and scenery get spoilt. Even for this tour i got postponed due weather and got rescheduled the next day. Anyway this was my experience for those who are interested. I have made a short vlog about my experience too in case you would like to have a visual experience. Thank you.

Truly was. Wish the weather was better though. Also due to the runway upgrades the flights start at 8am. Usually starts at 6.30am so that we can see the sunrise by the mountain range.

try to go at colder temperature. Once temperature goes up, the air is no longer so clear.

here's another tip I read.

Weather at high mountain can change drastically so sometime you get great views and sometime lousy views, if at all.

So the trick is to only decide 2 days before because 2 days advance weather forecast are pretty accurate.

I've done EBC trek many years ago. Trekking up to kala patthar for the amazing view with freezing cold temperature is definitely a whole different experience.
The view of the mountain r more or less the same even with flight to lukla.
