Number of Stops: 3

You will start at Nepal’s capital city of Kathmandu at Tribhuvan International Airport (VNKT) and fly east heading into the foothills of the jaw dropping Himalayas.

At the small village of Charikot you will turn south and make your way to your first stop: The short and grassy Ramechhap Airport (VNRC).

You will continue the flight east towards Manebhaniyang District where you will head north climbing along the mountainous path of the Harkapur Okhaldhunga road before landing at the perilously short dirt runway of Kangel Danda Airport (VNKL).

Continuing, the route will weave its way north through the steep valleys to the spectacular hand-crafted Lukla Airport (VNLK). This will be your third stop.

For the final leg you will leave Lukla Airport and quickly climb north following the valleys onto the path of the Khumbu Glacier until you reach Mount Everest’s incredible summit of 29,029 feet.

Once you have crested Everest’s peak, you will descend eastward, briefly following the path of the Chinese Kangshung Glacier before heading south into Nepal again until you reach your destination airport: Tumlingtar (VNTR).
