As much as I love to label myself as adventurous, I know that it's almost certainly impossible for me to ever climb over Mount Everest, NIML😊. That's why I was really excited about the flight over Mount Everest, thinking that might be the closest I could ever get to the highest peak in the world. Well, the title can be misleading, since we didn't really fly over the summit of Mount Everest, just circled around the Himalaya Range. Nonetheless, it was an unforgettable experience!

TIA is the only international airport in Nepal. It looks like a bus station. But still, I have to say that it is much better than expected.

There is no passenger boarding bridge at the airport (guess HSBC would have to find another place to display its global slogans in Nepal).

The highest point in the picture is Sagarmatha/Everest (8848 m/29028 ft) and Lhotse (8516 m/27940 ft) is right next to it.
