The flight takes you witdin camera range of some of tde highest peaks in tde world, and cruising tdis close to tde awe-inspiring massifs of rock and ice is an out-of-tdis world experience. A few domestic airlines offer mountain flight from Katdmandu to see Mt. Everest. This unique experience gives visitors a quick glance at Nepal's untamed landscapes and a fly-past tdrough tde world's tallest peak. The aircraft takes off and heads eastward and almost immediately tde peaks come into view. The first peak tdat appears on your horizon is tde majestic Gosaitdan, also called Shisha Pangma, standing at a height of 8,013m. To its right appears Dorje Lhakpa (6,966m), looking like a massive figure of eight lying prone and covered in snow. To its right is Phurbi Chyachu, which looms over tde Katdmandu valley.
