    The scenes around the great Himalayas of the Everest from the helicopter were absolutely perfect to view. The sunrise over Mount Everest was a must-see outlook throughout the journey. The fresh air around the base camp of Everest felt just so great. The Everest itself had a massive presence alongside the neighboring green lush forest, steep landscape, brown hills, blooming rhododendron, and rare wilderness. It just felt dreamlike with such an amazing view and a fun time taking photos from the helicopter. The Helicopter was on time and because of that, all my trip schedule was completed so well.

    Nepal Trek Adventures is definitely the best trekking agency in Nepal to visit Mount Everest Region. While many people struggle to get booking and problems with their pickoffs, I had no problem at all. All the timing of helicopter starting from Kathmandu to Lukla, Lukla to EBC and then back to Kathmandu was perfect and the view was a plus point to my trip. The base camp has a chilly atmosphere but is a great place that is a must-visit. The helicopter provided by Nepal Trek was so much managed and operative that I got the best stunning views overall. I miss nothing throughout the trip; all those homely feelings and friendly atmosphere were just miraculous. With this tour, you will not miss the sunrise and golden sun view on the mountain tops. It will make your day so much better and cheerful with its remarkable panorama. I loved my ride to Everest and an easy ride back to Kathmandu.

    I had a trip to the Everest Nepal and the whole trip was amazing that I had never thought to be that way great. I have to say that a single sight exploration and full day of a helicopter ride to Everest Region and return back to Kathmandu was just the one I was looking for. The Helicopter service was great and thumbs up that it was particularly on time. The local people and restaurants around the Lukla Village is a must-explore Everest territory. You get everything in Lukla such as tropical landscape, local market, hotels, restaurants, and the settlement around. The International Cuisines I had there was just amazing and lip-smacking. The helicopter view around the Everest region is definitely something to look forward to. The Base Camp exploration was great and I had a comfortable ride back to Kathmandu.
