  1. This is so not true… Planes fly above Himalayas… Cause planes from CHINA comes to NEPAL which you need to pass over the Himalayas

  2. There have been flights between Lhasa and Kathmandu at least in the 90ies 😉 Worked a lot in the Himalayas, and they are quite narrow ….

  3. over 1,700 dislikes???? who dislikes information presented with a fun and truly layman approach??? am I missing something?

  4. There's no such thing as "kph". Stop using imperial/US customary unit logic with metric units; the symbol for kilometres per hour is "km/h". Also, the symbol for metres is "m", not "M".

  5. I am going to brag: As a serviceman in the Army Air Corps, my father flew cargo and troops between India and China over the Himalayas during WW II in a C130.
    It was one of the most dangerous and crucial in the war.
    Dad would have turned 100 this year.
    RIP Daddy!!!

  6. lol to high in case of an emergency descent the GRID MORA are extremely high ., and probably no enough oxygen inside airplane to maintain high level ., basic flying rules

  7. Actually planes do fly over it, there’s actually a company out there that does air tour. Ps airlines have max ceiling altitude of 50,000ft, why go 35,000 over the mountains. I’d probably go 47,000ft. Oh and the higher they fly the less fuel they burn because winds are pretty strong up there / engine doesn’t need to work as much.

  8. Some of the wrong information given in this video

    Airplanes fly near Himalayas
    Kathmandu has instrumental system for emergency landing..

  9. Fyi, the Paro to Kathmandu flight does fly over the Himalayas and the passengers do get the opportunity to spot Mt. Everest

  10. Wow phillipines go pass everest? Nah when i go to trip my plane dint go there :/ and ofc ik where the plane is going dont complain

  11. They do flyover Himalayan Ranges and very smoothly.
    New Delhi – Kathmandu
    Kathmandu-Lukla
    New Delhi to Leh (Ladakh)
    New Delhi to Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir)

    Rename the Video to why Planes don't fly over Everest

  12. There is an airport at Shrinagar, Kashmir which is situated in the laps of Himalayas and we do see snowclad mountains before landing.

  13. Hello I am a Nepalese 🤥and for your kind notice flights fly over the Himalayas. Flight Air China t flies from Kathmandu to Lhasa over the mountains😀🙂

  14. this is completely lie … i live between three mountain ranges Himalaya karakuram and Hindukush but planes fly over thees ranges on daily basis

  15. But what the video should've described is why does that turbulence or decompression happen when the planes fly above the Himalayas, whereas there were only few sentences spoken behind that science (mountain winds)….
