Flying over Mt Everest!

I added a couple of days on to my Nepal visit in Kathmandu. The main reason was to take a flight seeing trip over Mt Everest – and thankfully the weather obliged so up we went!

It was the end of the rainy season, so there was always the chance the clouds would be closed in. But not today!

I flew Yeti Airlines and paid about US$200 for the hour-long early morning flight which ended with a visit one by one into the cockpit (where I made this video) and glass of champagne in the air.
