As the plane moves along, the mountains come closer and closer. The first mountain you will see is Choba-Bhamare, the smallest one of the lot at 5,933 m but singularly stubborn as it has never been climbed.
Next appears Gauri-Shankar mountain which is not only prominent by sight but also in spiritually. Lord Shiva and his consort Gauri are said to protect this mountain, and at the proud height of 7,134 m, the summit had a history of unsuccessful attempts until 1979. Gauri-Shankar is sharp and very conspicuous during the mountain flight.
As the plane moves towards the land of the rising sun, the eastern Himalaya, a succession of glorious mountains follow. Melungtse, a Plateau like mountain stretches up to 7,023 m. This is followed by Chugimago, at 6,297 m is still a virgin, waiting to be climbed and at 6,956 m, Numbur mountain resembles a breast, a maternal source in the sky providing pure milk to the Sherpas of the Solu Khumbu.
You will now admire Karyolung, an intensely white mountain that at 6,511 m gleams with the rising sun and Cho-Oyu, the eighth highest mountain in the world, reaching a height of 8,201 m, it appears stunningly beautiful from the aircraft.
Next to appear is Gyanchungkang, at a majestic height of 7,952 m, it is considered an extremely difficult climb, and to the right of Gyanchungkang is Pumori at (7,161m).
As passengers get closer to Everest, there's Nuptse (7,855 m), which means West Peak, signifying its direction from Everest. Finally, there’s Everest (8,848m) itself, known as 'Sagarmatha' by the Nepalese and 'Chomolungma' by the Tibetans.
Much has already been written about Everest, but to actually witness it face to face during a mountain flight is something else. Even while it looms there in front of the eyes, it remains an enigma, this highest spot on earth.
