You should definitely do a mountain flight but do NOT book through viator. I paid TWICE what people booked through the hotel and my seat was an obstructed view. Book through your hotel or the airline directly buddha air and try to avoid rows 5-8 obstructed by the propeller and if you can choose D C instead of A B then the light will be better for photography shooting with the sun behind you vs shooting into the sun.

This is a must-do if you are lucky enough to be able to travel to Nepal. It's not only really exciting to see Everest, but seeing the mountain range is an experience you will never forget!! The crew was very nice. There isn't a lot of verbal information provided like you would normally get on a tour, but they are happy to answer questions and they provide a diagram of the mountains you are looking at which I think is actually more helpful than if they tried to point the mountains out to you. They also try to give everyone a chance to go up to the cockpit to view the mountains from the pilots viewpoint which we all really enjoyed. Yes for sure--you don't want to miss this one!!!

Fantastic experience. The crew was very informative and happy to point out all of the peaks as we flew by.

The Viator web site offered tours at 6:30, 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30. We signed up for the 9:30 AM flight because we would not be getting to the hotel until 1 AM. While checking in, the local company had already called and said we would be picked up at 5 AM. We called the local guide at 1 AM and we talked for a while, but the short answer is that THERE WAS ONLY 6:30, the confirmed voucher showed 9:30 AM.

The local company explained that if there was a 9:30 AM fight, the clouds would come up and there would be nothing to see.

We got 3 hours of sleep. The local company was very good, answering calls late at night and explaining the issue.

Viator was a HUGE disappointment. We booked this months ago and no mention that we were sold something that was not really available. I tried emailing Viator, but no response.

I would recommend booking directly through Buddha Airlines. The flight was great. We would have saved hundreds of dollars eliminating Viator and arranging ground transport through the hotel.

The local component was great, but Viator was a huge disappointment.

This was a beautiful experience. I booked a late-morning flight but was contacted the day before and was asked to take the sunrise flight, which probably turned out to be a smart move since a cloud bank rolled in later that morning. There were no issues with transportation to the airport, boarding pass retrieval, and the gate agent actually moved a few of us to the very first departure so we could get pictures at sunrise. The pilots and flight attendant pointed out all of the important points-of-view. I highly recommend this experience, especially if you are a first time traveler to Nepal.

Our flight was canceled the first day but we were roobooked for the next day. If you do this tour it might be a good idea for you to do it the first day so if it is canceled because of weather you will get the chance to do it the next day. Expect to pay for extra transfer the next day if your flig

We had a 2 hour delay due to the weather but when we finally got to fly it was amazing. The views of the Himalayas was fabulous and it was amazing to see Everest.

Wow, I saw Mount Everest and the Himalaya. We were with Buddha Air and the flight attendant and pilot were very nice and showed us all the mountain peaks and best angles for pictures ! A must if visiting Nepal.
