        NTA's arrangements of the Gosaikunda Helicopter tour

        After sending a month in Nepal, I still felt like exploring more. So, I contacted my trekking company and asked them about any packages available that take me near lakes and mountains. They immediately told me about Gosaikunda Helicopter tour. I asked them to book it f for the next day as I don't want to waste a day waiting. They arranged everything and the view of mountains, lush green forests of bamboo, and settlements were amazing. The 10 minutes that we send near the lakes, snow-capped mountains, and green hills were beautiful. Eventhough it was a short trek but the view will make everything worthwhile. Thanks, NTA for the arrangements of the Gosaikunda Helicopter tour.

        Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour package

        I came to Nepal with my parents as I wanted to take them out. I asked them where they wanted to go and they said Gosaikunda, but there was a problem , they didn't have enough time as they have to go backafter two days. So, hiking was not an option. So, I started surfing the internet and after surfing for hours I found NTA. They offered us the best deals at resonable rice in comparision to other company so i booked it immediately. The next day we went on Gosaikunda Helicopter tour which was amazing. The view of mountains, green forest, lakes were stunning. After completing the tour , my arents were happy which was a great achievements for me. Thanks NTA for this amazing Gosaikunda Helicopter tour package at best price.
