Notice about application to Everest Mountain Flight
The operation of Everest Mountain Flight is influenced largely by weather. Therefore, the flight departure time would be delayed far behind the schedule. After a couple of hours waiting, then the airplane would depart, or the flight would be cancelled. Even if the flight is operated, it may take some time to land because the heavy fog in the sky around Kathmandu makes the airplane would circle in the sky. Or it is a rare case, but an airplane temporarily lands on Pokara to wait until the weather would recover. Therefore, we would ask you to make your morning schedule on the mountain flight day not be full.
Naturally, the mountain flight is influenced by weather. If the periphery of Kathmandu airport is cloudy but the Everest areas are fine and able to depart, the flight is operated. On the contrary, Kathmandu is fine but the Everest areas are cloudy, the flight is not operated.
