Let's strip it down to essentials. On the Mountain Flight you will see twenty-one mountains. Six of them are over 8000 meters high. Seven more are over 7000 meters. Another seven are over 6000 meters. One is a 5933-meter mountain that has never been climbed. (See the illustration at the bottom of the page.)

For comparison, Mont Blanc is 4810 meters tall, and Denali (Mt. McKinley) is 5486 meters tall.

You will see Mount Everest, the tallest of them all, clearly composed of bands of rock laid down long ago at the bottom of a forgotten sea. It is the mountain of a billion dreams, created by 65 million years of evolution.

One hour to Everest and back along the central Himalayan range. US$ 196 per person, subject to increase, including airport transportation and assistance.
