What people are saying about Kathmandu

Something you have to experience! Hotel pick-up and drop-off went smoothly. Flight was postponed by about 1 hour due to bad weather (safety first and not unusual in the mountains). Modern plane and very friendly staff who provided information about the mountains. Each passenger had a window seat. The view of the mountain range and Mount Everest is pure goosebump feeling.

Great experience overall! We booked the panoramic flight in the early morning incl. pickup from our hotel - everything worked perfectly: pickup was on time, we both got a window spot, the staff on board was really helpful and explaining us which peaks we see. Overall great and I would recommend it to everyone!

Simply sensational! We were picked up on time, but then had to wait a relatively long time (quite a delay) until we were allowed on board, but the flight made up for everything: super nice crew, you were even allowed to go into the cockpit for a short time and the view was indescribably beautiful!

Amazing experience and great cabin crew. Approved. Final rating ---> 8+ out of 10.

Good crew, excellent views and great flying experience.
