  Everest from a BDR-KTM flight

On the flights to Bhadrapur as well as to Pokhara, the planes will take you along the eastern and western sections of the central Himalayas respectively. They won't go as close as a proper mountain flight, but close enough to bring up your camera and mountain profile map.
If you travel to Taplejung, Simikot, Lukla and Tumlingtar you will have the same experience.
If there is a haze and cloud cover, only Buddha Air will fly high enough to give you a view (20.000 ft).
