Out of the fourteen peaks higher than 8,000 meters, eight are found in Nepal. So, no visit to Nepal is complete without the once-in-a-lifetime experience of the view of Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), the top of the world. Some people feel it by making a trek to the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. As it is very much worth effort, it may not be possible for everyone due to their physical conditions and the time margins. Everest experience flight could be the best option for those who wish to see the majestic Himalayas. It is a complete one hour flight.
