Mountain flights are certainly one of the best experiences one can ever have. Imagine watching the picturesque views of mountains and the Himalayas from a closer look, from the sky itself. Mountain flights are very popular among people who travel to Nepal from various parts of the world. Mountain flights are presumably one of the best attractions of Nepal.
Most flights are operated in the mornings and function at all times except in the monsoon seasons of June, July & August. Air planes fly along the Himalayan range and also beyond for passengers to get a good view of the Himalayan range. All the domestic airlines of Nepal offer various forms of mountain flights which makes mountain flights quite accessible.
The domestic flight takes you within the camera range of some of the highest peaks in the world, and cruising this close to the awe-inspiring massifs of rock and ice is an out-of-this world experience. A few domestic airlines offer mountain flight from Kathmandu to see Mt. Everest. This unique experience gives visitors a quick glimpse at Nepal’s wild landscapes and a fly-past through the world’s tallest peak. The aircraft takes off and heads eastward and almost immediately the peaks come into view. The first peak that appears on the horizon is the majestic Gosaithan, 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 the Kathmandu valley.
Many domestic flights provide services of the mountain flights that are affordable and readily available. The flights cover the most of the eccentric views of Himalayan ranges which offers the customers with full satisfaction of the service that will not disappoint anyone.

The Durbar Square significantly holds a lot of importance historically and culturally as well. The credit to the Patan Durbar square is conflicted as it is still unclear about who exactly built it. Some records suggest that the history of Patan, Thakuri Dynasty built a palace and made reforms to the locality but the evidence is minute. Scholars are certain that Patan was a prosperous city since ancient times.
Bhaktapur Durbar Square
Bhaktapur Durbar square is considered as one of the oldest sites representing the culture, history, art of Nepal from an ancient time.
