This was a beautiful experience. I booked a late-morning flight but was contacted the day before and was asked to take the sunrise flight, which probably turned out to be a smart move since a cloud bank rolled in later that morning. There were no issues with transportation to the airport, boarding pass retrieval, and the gate agent actually moved a few of us to the very first departure so we could get pictures at sunrise. The pilots and flight attendant pointed out all of the important points-of-view. I highly recommend this experience, especially if you are a first time traveler to Nepal.

Our flight was canceled the first day but we were roobooked for the next day. If you do this tour it might be a good idea for you to do it the first day so if it is canceled because of weather you will get the chance to do it the next day. Expect to pay for extra transfer the next day if your flig

We had a 2 hour delay due to the weather but when we finally got to fly it was amazing. The views of the Himalayas was fabulous and it was amazing to see Everest.

Wow, I saw Mount Everest and the Himalaya. We were with Buddha Air and the flight attendant and pilot were very nice and showed us all the mountain peaks and best angles for pictures ! A must if visiting Nepal.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

Despite being delayed I am glad we did it. The views were stunning.

"I" personally will never climb Everest so this flight was the closest I will ever come to this famous mountain. We had a beautiful crystal clear morning and our pictures taken from our seat window....plus the incredible photos from the cockpit....are all keepers! I think before the flight, I was so focused on just Mt. Everest, that I was taken back at how much I enjoyed everything else. "ALL" of the Himalayas are breathtaking whether you section it off to focus on individual mountains or look at it as a whole. To be honest, I believe I enjoyed viewing it as a "whole" the most. Flight crew was very pleasant....especially the female co-pilot. This experience was a once in a lifetime for me and I found it just spectacular!


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better October 2017

The Viator web site offered tours at 6:30, 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30. We signed up for the 9:30 AM flight because we would not be getting to the hotel until 1 AM. While checking in, the local company had already called and said we would be picked up at 5 AM. We called the local guide at 1 AM and we talked for a while, but the short answer is that THERE WAS ONLY 6:30, the confirmed voucher showed 9:30 AM.

The local company explained that if there was a 9:30 AM fight, the clouds would come up and there would be nothing to see.

We got 3 hours of sleep. The local company was very good, answering calls late at night and explaining the issue.

Viator was a HUGE disappointment. We booked this months ago and no mention that we were sold something that was not really available. I tried emailing Viator, but no response.

I would recommend booking directly through Buddha Airlines. The flight was great. We would have saved hundreds of dollars eliminating Viator and arranging ground transport through the hotel.

The local component was great, but Viator was a huge disappointment.
