You don't want to stop at 1600m that's 4m short of a mile high!

5265 ft is what your aiming for :D

Yes, its perfectly possible to fly that high, and higher. And legal so long as you don't climb into any restricted airspace. Our local area has a 6500ft ceiling before we are in class A

Wrap up warm. Expect your motor to be a little sluggish at altitude. Don't fly in the clouds, that's where mountains hide. And take a Camera :D

Hi Rotor over mountain tops can be up to 2000 if a wind is blowing Have a plan and be careful I had a serious event once when I was flying my lightweight single seat microlight. I really thought I had made my last flight! I was just too low and the rotor which you cannot see gave me a real experience! A calm day would have been another kettle of fish.

I have 3000 hours flyight time and got caught out

Good luck
