thanks for the heads up their ... that scenic flight looks to be exactly what im after! ... reasnoble price to ... im guessing its a good couple of hours worth .... the site suggests it takes 1 hour to actually get to Everest .. maybe 10 mins circling it etc .. either way providing i get a good weather day, it should be immense!
will def look into Pokhara ... me thinks 7-8 days spent all in Kathmandu would be somewhat of a waste
If there's multiple flights on the one day make sure you try get the earliest one in the morning as there's more chance it will be clear!
Ive just been up in Nepal, i was up there for 22days in Pokhara, we didnt go to Kathmandu, guess the feel of Pokhara was too much to pull us away. The sights are true breath taking even in Pokhara, if you get up early enough go down to the camping chowk and you'll see all 8(i think) of the annapurna range! I heard in Kathmandu you wont get mountains. If you get a chance go to Chitwan National Park, its expensive to stay inside the park($180 each for 2nights/3days) but it was well worth it,i got to see a wild tiger on a elephant safari!!! - we went to 15different travel agents and haggled hard for our deal!
Hope it helps
