Everest Experience is a close-encounter mountain flight-seeing tour with small aircraft. Indulge in the panorama and may be, you might realize what you have been missing, or find what you have been looking for, all this while.
After all a trip to Nepal would be incomplete without truly understanding what really makes it beautiful.
Nothing compares to the sheer beauty or awe, the Himalayas has to offer. Take the mother of all mountain flights, the Everest Experience where we put you, one on one with Mt. Everest, so close that you can almost touch it.
For those who are restricted by time or other considerations from going trekking, these flights offer a panoramic view of the Himalayan in just one hour. Even those visitors who like the rigors of trek still do not miss the opportunity to conquer the mountains in one fell swoop. Travelers take off from Kathmandu in the early morning for an hours worth of spectacular mountain scenery. As the aircraft lifts up and heads towards the east, passengers do not have to wait too long to find out what's in store for them. There they are-the mountains, as they always have been.
Beat The Monsoon you need not to worry even if there are monsoon clouds on the day of your mountain flight because they are usually up to 20,000 feet and our is the only airline in Nepal to fly over these clouds operating at 25,000 feet. Thus, the spectacular Himalayas will not be hidden from you even during the monsoon, in our flight.
Our aircrafts are the American Beech 1900D, French-Italian ATR 42-300 or ATR-72-500, which have all the modern avionics, instruments and airframe that are in a modern jetliner.
We fly everyday all year round; please check out the possibilities as soon as possible since we are fully booked up during the season.
Note: On-Demand experience

There are couples of airlines operating mountain flights. Flight time is about 50 minutes. Each passenger is guaranteed of a window seat. After about twenty minutes in to the flight each passenger is invited to the Pilot's cabin to view the Mountain range from the cockpit.It was a once in a life time experience.
I did not climb Mt Everest but it touched my heart.
I am glad I did this. Thank you Trekking Team Group for suggesting me to take this flight, I would have missed it otherwise…

I recently did it in mid April, could see the mighty and legendary full snow covered Himalayas. I had taken flight with Simrik Air which generally guarantees a window seat to all its passengers, I did get one. Towards the end of the one hour flight they gave me a certificate of honor for the trip. The view is majestic and is absolutely luring. The air hostess even permits the passengers to take pictures from the cockpit, the pilots also co-operate.

Recently I visited Nepal and had great holiday with Trekking Team Group. The company is run by Shree and his brother who are proud of his homeland and are so welcoming to foreign visitors. My first "encounter" occurred shortly after my arrival in Kathmandu when I was looking for a operator to organize Everest Experience flight. I was keen to book a flight to see the mountains as soon as possible as I have heard many good things about this flight. Shree immediately organized this flight for me on the day when I wished to go, picked me up from my hotel at 6.00am on the morning of the flight and was there at the airport to meet me afterwards. The flight with Yeti Airlines was a magical experience. Everyone has a window seat. We took off a little after the scheduled departure time once the early fog had cleared and, within minutes, were soaring past the towering snow clad caps of the Langtan Range. We flew for 45 minutes parallel to the ranges and the stewardess pointed put the various peaks as they came into view. Set against the dazzling blue of the early morning, the rugged, mountainous terrain evoked sighs of awe from all on the plane, especially when we each had our turn to view the scene from the cockpit. Not once did I feel anxiety about our proximity to the seemingly endless stretch of mighty mountains alongside which we just seemed to float, as the views were just so impressive. Everest appeared, a great exultant pyramid jutting into the sky, caressed softly on its mighty peak by a faint wisp of sunlit cloud. The mood on the plane was one of awestruck happiness. If you are seated on the left side of the plane you are closer to the mountains on the outward flight but if you sit on the right, you have the view up even closer on the return journey. It was good to be met afterwards by Shree who seemed genuinely happy for me when I returned, so delighted after the exhilirating flight.
I hope to return to Nepal in the not too distant future and to undertake more encounters with the landscape and people of this stunning country. In future, I will organise all my adventures with TTG Company. He brings an open, sincere and caring soul to the organisation of travel for his clients which just add a joyous layer of gentle Nepali humanity to the experience, making it all the richer.
This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.
IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US. This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.

One of the major activities of Ambe foundation is the children sponsorship program, which is conducted with full collaboration with Trekking Team Group.
