Our group wanted to explore many places in Nepal but due to our lack of time we were not able to explore for a long time but this 3 day trip to Everest base camp made our wishes come true. During the short period of time, we were able to experience the most alluring Mountain View and Himalayan surroundings that involved high hills, green lush forests, and typical flora and fauna. The local settlement, tea houses, restaurants and cultural experiences with Mountain people were also wonderful ones. All thanks to Nepal Trek adventure. Because of their 3 days' tour package, our tour went miraculous. The price was suitable and the services were splendid i.e. way beyond expectation. We didn't even have to worry about our needs and any kind of facilities at all. Everything was arranged before our arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal. All went well, even best!

    Best Short Trek to Everest Base Camp with helicopter


    While I was in Nepal, it was the best moment of my life. I did 3 days Everest Base Camp Trekking there. On the first day, I went on straight to Phakding, with the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, and then trekking to Phakding from Lukla. Then, I moved on to Namche Bazaar, the next day. Furthermore, on the next day, trekked upward to Syangboche, where laid the Hotel Everest View. The trekking journey was amazing, and also was thrilling. Some places were steep, slippery and there were hurdles too. I literally got pissed off in a couple of places. The experience was good though. Oh yeah, at Hotel Everest View, I had a typical Nepali dish. The taste was amazing and I got the lip-smacking and hand-licking practice. From there, we took a helicopter flight to Kathmandu, screening the encompassing mountain ranges and all the natural brilliance that we had and had not experienced while walking throughout. This chopper ride from HEV was likewise a remarkable thing done in Nepal. Everything was amazing. Thank you so much, Rajan, for leading me towards this remarkable place in the world. Of course, thanks a lot, Nepal Trek Adventure & Expedition, for that great arrangements and providence of such a knowledgeable and funny guide. Kudos!
