How long does the Everest Helicopter tour take?
The tour usually ends within four hours of the start, but sometimes the flight may get delayed due to air traffic in Kathmandu and weather condition around Mt. Everest.

Manaslu, Mount Langtang, and Mount Shisha Panama at the beginning of the trip from the sky of Kathmandu to Mt. Everest, Mt. Mount Nuptse, Mount Lhotse, Island Peak, Mt. Kongde, Mt.
