    The heli ride back to Lukla from Everest base camp


    I booked a helicopter to return to Lukla from base camp as I did want to walk further anymore. So I contacted my company and booked a helicopter for a drop-off ride.

    Best Pickup and Drop-off between Kathmandu and EBC


    I made two bookings for the same day. One for the ride to the Base Camp and another for returning back after a few hours! It was definitely a worthy and perfect decision for me. I enjoyed the base camp and explored it in my own way. The helicopter was comfortable and has mesmerizing views of the snow peaks and the mountain valleys from the left-hand side. Nepal Trek Adventures provided the best and secured booking service for the helicopter ride for me, which arrived at the exact time as it was mentioned. I highly recommend the NTA team for a pick-up drop-off service between Kathmandu and Everest Base Camp.

    I was waiting for responses from many travel agencies for my Everest Base Camp drop-off ride. The Nepal Trek Adventures was the fastest to confirm my booking.

But due to Nepal Trek Adventures, I had a comfortable ride to reach the base camp with no hassle at all. I roamed around the base camp. It was the perfect feeling as I was on the base camp of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. I successfully completed the helicopter ride and exploration.

  • Surprise Meeting with friends in the Everest Base Camp

    Surprise Meeting with friends in the Everest Base Camp


    My friends had gone trekking in the Everest Base Camp. Their travel agency the Nepal Trek Adventures had arranged them the trekking itinerary to reach the base camp. It was one of my friends' birthday, so I decided to surprise him. However, I didn’t know it was difficult to book the helicopter ride to the Everest. After trying for hours myself, I decided to contact the same travel agency (NTA) and told them the whole story. The NTA was very cooperative and helped me to confirm my booking with a helicopter. I reached the EBC just on time and gave him the BIG surprise. I could look happiness and rolling tears from his eyes seeing me. I also booked for a reverse trek from the same company so it was possible for me to get back with my friends. Absolutely loved the Heli ride to Everest! The views are surreal and startling. Definitely a must-visit destination! Prescribed one!

  • Simple and Time Efficient Heli Pick Up and Drop Service

    Simple and Time Efficient Heli Pick Up and Drop Service


    We wanted a quick journey to the Everest Base camp. We had another trip where we would walk back to Lukla with the local guide. We did not want to do too much uphill but downhill was not much a problem for us. So, we decided to do the Everest Base Camp Trek in reverse. So I booked my helicopter ride to base camp with the Nepal Trek Adventures. It was confirmed very fast and I had no problems along the trip at all. We enjoyed a comfortable trek back to Lukla with astonishing memories of the surrounding views of the mountain and the locals. Just took the easiest way, going through the helicopter ride! It was simple, time-efficient and highly recommendable.

  • Easy ride to Kathmandu from Base Camp

    Easy ride to Kathmandu from Base Camp


    I had just finished my base camp trek and I didn’t want to walk back all the way to Lukla for a flight. Fortunately, I had already informed my guide about it and the team helped me with all my booking formalities. My ride was on time and I easily got back to Kathmandu. The sky views back from the helicopter were amazing and I was really satisfied with my trip to Kathmandu from the Base Camp, as well as the whole trekking part. It was like having a cool beer after days of hard work. Too refreshing! Nepal Trek Adventures, the best agency for booking both the treks and helicopter ride in Nepal!

  • EBC Trek with Helicopter Flight to Kathmandu:

    EBC Trek with Helicopter Flight to Kathmandu:


    I was in the Himalayan lap enjoying the panoramas, after finishing my Everest Base Camp Trek. my other team members were encouraged to trek back to Lukla and then come to Kathmandu. But I did not have that much courage. I was suffering from some minor health problems, that was leading me to take a chance of helicopter flight to Kathmandu. I had primarily heard about the helicopter tour provided by NTA. It suddenly came in mind. I consulted with my guide and then he arranged this helicopter tour. I reached back to Kathmandu in just 45 minutes time span. It was the most amazing trip. It would have been more too, but due to my health, it was limited to that level of satisfaction. No worries. I will return back to Nepal, and at that time, I will surely summit the mountain. Company services and guide Shiva were incredible though. I will surely return to you for more tourism facility in Nepal, guys. Love you all.
