The best domestic airlines in Nepal. Experienced pilots and a great ground engineers and crew who keep the airlines in top top condition. In Nepal, you should always opt for Buddha air if you are flying domestic. It should be your first choice.

The view of the Everest and the surrounding mountains were great. The reason they are getting a 4 stars, instead of 5 is because of the junky airplane. The seats were not straight and leaning and the tray table came out on its own.
