We chose the first flight of the day to Lukla to optimize our chance of actually flying into the mountains. In the spring, and rainy season this is the best way to go. The flight was delayed, but that had to do with national security with the visit by some VIPs from India, but that wasn't the fault of Yeti....

Yeti Airlines, the best option in Nepal for travelling urban to rural areas. The jetstream flight is even shorter than we imagined. We are a bit upset that the flight to Pokhara is always delayed from Kathmandu.

While we couldn’t find a ton of information on Yeti Airlines, both of our flights with them, from Kathmandu to Pokhara and from Pokhara to Kathmandu, were reasonable. There was only minor turbulence and neither of us got airsick. We had never previously traveled on such a small plane, but the windows provided the best views of the Anapurna Mountain...

Great short flight up to the Himalayas to see Mt Everest. Slightly late take off, weather affected, but that goes with the territory. Once airborne though the views were amazing. Flight attendant knowledgeable, pointing out the various peaks as we flew by. Opportunity to visit cockpit to get some even better views of the mountains. Flight rounded off with glass...

Good domestic airline. The flight to Pokhara is very short one. The staff are most helpful at the airport. I think we only had one flight attendant and she was wonderful. I also flew with Yet Airline alongside Everest Mountains. Breathtaking views of the mountain. All our flights were delayed but, largely due to the weather. Good airline to fly...

We did fly with Yeti from Kathmandu to Lukla and then back for our 3 passes trek. For both legs I have booked first morning flights using their website. In both cases we got to the airport early (before it even opened), checked our bags in without any problems (even though the whole process was a bit chaotic), had no...

Once in a lifetime trip to the Himalayas and to see Everest up close. We were lucky as the airport was not shrouded in fog, so we were able to take off pretty much to time. Once up there, it was clear views all the way. We were individually invited into the flight cockpit and served champagne after the experience....

Nice and picturesque flight . Clean cabin and comfortable seats. Only coffee was served during the flight. Short flight lasting about 45 minutes. Waiting in the Pokhra airport was more than the flight time!. The Cabin crew was cheerful and happy to serve . Efficient and no nonsense flight and ground handling too.
