  1. Great opportunity to view Everest
    By Mark Downhill March 15, 2024
    It was a really unique and great way to see Everest. The views were great, crew members allowed us to see Everest from the cockpit, hotel to airport transfers were on time and overall, it is a highly recommended tour to view the 8,848 meter high Everest.
  2. Great to See Mount Everest
    By Bill Freud March 6, 2024
    It is probably the best way to see Mount Everest. This tour exceeded my expectations and is a good treat for someone who cannot trek to see the beauty of Mount Everest. It was a once in a lifetime experience for me to see Everest up close. Thank you, Mosaic Adventure, for the good arrangement of this flight ticket and transfer and thanks to driver Ram for waiting at the airport while I enjoyed the tour. Highly recommended tour to see the Himalayas, particularly the highest peak on earth.
  3. Everest Scenic Flight with Hotel Pickup
    By Liz Richardson March 1, 2024
    It was a once in a lifetime experience with breathtaking views throughout the tour. Each passenger gets a window seat and the plane crew was really helpful in explaining what we were seeing during the flight. Booking was easy through the Mosaic website. They quickly provided details upon booking and the pickup driver was right on time to take us to the airport and was waiting for us upon our return from the flight. Well worth the experience.
  4. We liked their service
    By Nicky Atkinson February 22, 2024
    We booked this 1 hour tour, but due to bad weather conditions, the flight didn't take off and this wasn't Mosaic Adventure's fault. I am giving them a 5 star review even though we didn't do the tour due to their seamless service. The booking process was easy and we received an immediate response from Madhav after booking. After our tour was cancelled, they immediately processed the refund without much trouble. I trust this company and will book with them again if I can return to Nepal.
  5. Great Everest Viewing Flight
    By Kim Babbie February 20, 2024
    Taking a short trip towards the Everest range reveals an amazing view of its beauty. Even if you're only in Kathmandu for a little while, you can still enjoy this unique experience. Not only can you see Everest directly, but also the other mountains around it, creating a stunning view of nature's greatness. Everest stands out majestically among the other Himalayan peaks. The friendly staff onboard point out the peaks during the journey and at the end, we also receive a certificate. It's a great tour to view Everest and it was a nice arrangement by Mosaic Adventure to show us Everest.
  6. Just WOW!
    By Craig Bale February 13, 2024
    I had the best experience viewing Everest on this tour. Airport transfers were smooth, crew members of Shree Airlines were great and the views were nice with the best glimpse of Mt. Everest.
  7. Great way to see Everest
    By June Haigh January 10, 2024
    This was a great scenic flight of approximately 1 hour to see Everest. We had perfect weather on the day and got to see Mount Everest and the entire mountain range was spectacular!
  8. Truly Amazing Flight around Everest from Kathmandu
    By Michal T July 24, 2023
    I booked a one-hour flight around Mount Everest from Kathmandu for my wife and me. Everything went smoothly, from the hotel pickup to the flight itself, which offered spectacular views of the world's highest mountain, including Mount Everest. It was a great opportunity to have such favorable weather for a trip I had been wanting to take for a while. The experience was truly amazing, especially for someone like me who is not interested in trekking but still wants to see mountains.
  9. The flight was spectacular
    By Byron Blaker April 21, 2023
    We used Mosaic Adventures to arrange our Everest flight from Kathmandu. The flight was spectacular. Raj was really helpful and gave us lots of tips of other things to do and places to see in Nepal. Will definitely use Mosaic Adventures again when we return to Nepal.
  10. The scenic flight to Mt Everest was delightful
    By Sara P April 4, 2023
    The scenic flight to Mt Everest was delightful. Although we attempted to use the airline's website to book, it proved to be a difficult process. Fortunately, we discovered Mosaic Adventure's website, and the booking was completed immediately. The cost of the flight included airport transfers, which was a beneficial addition, considering the challenge of finding a taxi early in the morning. We hope to have the opportunity to trek to the base camp with Mosaic Adventure someday.
  11. See the stunning mountain range
    By James McShane February 8, 2023
    This flight is highly recommended if you want to see the stunning Himalayan mountain range, including Mount Everest, without having to walk. It's a great option for those who may not have enough time to trek all the way to the base camp.
  12. Mountain Flight
    By Vyshakh Nair January 7, 2023
    I was looking for something unique to do when I was in Kathmandu a few days ago and heard about this mountain flight. I booked it with Mosaic Adventure and it's a really good Everest sightseeing mountain flight. It was a well organized tour that I can highly recommend for anyone looking to see Mount Everest.
  13. Worth the early morning wakeup
    By Robin Walthour December 17, 2022
    I have to start a bit early as this tour departs early in the morning, but it is worth the early wakeup. The driver from Mosaic Adventure transferred me to the airport and waited while I enjoyed the Everest Scenic flight. It was my birthday and the airlines provided champagne to celebrate it. The weather was good, with a clear view of the high Himalayan peaks. It's a good option for me, as I can't trek all the way to Everest :)
