    Our tour was incredibly coordinated because of the brilliant response and adaptability of the company. Despite the fact that the climate had been looking very inauspicious for many days, our manager was patient and figured out how to track down the ideal time frame for us to travel to Everest and partake in its glory. The helicopter landing at 5,545 meters (Kala Patthar) and the delightful breakfast at Everest View Hotel was without a doubt an appreciated memory for me as well as my companions. Considering how well they changed our Everest base camp helicopter tour to suit the variable climate conditions and the mindfulness they displayed towards any issues I had on the trip.

It was a truly charming encounter and I must admit that the sharp vision of the tallest snow-capped peaks across the mountains area was something different! I had the option to completely appreciate the remarkable view and excellence of the mountains without stressing about anything else. It was because of the faultless preparation and cooperation of the company. I felt like I had spent some money on the worthy trip. I had an awesome helicopter tour experience in Nepal.

    I'm a nature traveler. So, I made an arrangement to do the Everest Base Camp journey in Nepal with my better half. For Everest, it takes a minimum of 14 days however I didn’t have that much time. Thus, at last, we chose to do Everest Helicopter Tour. The tour to Everest Base camp (Kala Patthar) was truly mind-blowing and we partook in a great adventure encompassing mountains and landscapes from the window. Those moments in Everest Base Camp were exceptional and I was truly pleased to stand in front of the massive Mount Everest. I will always miss those appreciated moments in the Himalayas.

    I took my family for an unexpected helicopter ride to the Everest Base Camp. We were three and booked a private helicopter trip which was simply great. Trekking might be harder yet helicopter flight was awesome and was the most ideal and best decision that I had ever made in my life. The world is a greater spot and Mount Everest Base Camp is at the top. Took pictures and videos in Everest Base Camp (Kala Patthar)! I totally acclaimed it.
