    Kathmandu to Lukla Via Helicopter


    A Huge thanks to NTA team (Namaste) A grand applaud to Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition for operating Kathmandu to Lukla helicopter flight. Actually last month I had Everest Basecamp Tour but got so many issues at the time of my flight. I was about to reach Lukla through regular flights. And at the last moment, I got my flight cancelled due to weather. I was unknown about the frequently changing the weather of Lukla. My friends were already in Lukla a day before and I had to reach there and I was hopeless then my friends suggest me for helicopter flight. Then I contact Mr Binod and he sends a helicopter within an hour. He also suggests me to fly in group joining flight so I can split my bill with other passengers. I am so grateful that I contact the right person at the right time.

    I had heard a lot about Lukla airport. I wanted to reach Lukla as my friends were waiting there for me. I did not want to go on a flight as they say it is one of the scariest airports. But, I had to reach Lukla in a day anyhow. Then I came to know about the helicopter booking system as explained bt Binod. He was so clear about all the facts in helicopter flight and booked a helicopter as soon as possible. Finally, I met my friends in Lukla skipping the scariest part of the journey and we were able to travel in the region. The service of NTA is really good and always tries to comfort us in any way possible. I highly recommend NTA for quality service.

    Captured Mesmerizing Views from Heli flight


    I visited Everest Basecamp last month with my friends via Kathmandu to Lukla Helicopter flight. We were afraid to fly to Lukla when we know Lukla airport has one of the dangerous runways. We didn’t want to take the risk so we contact Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition and ask whether there is any other option. Profiteer Binod Sapkota recommend us Helicopter flight. It was quite costly in comparison to other flights but the comfort and private time we get to spend together was beyond any cost.  Views were spellbinding. Amazing mountains and woodlands covered with snow make us forget about everything. For a moment we feel as we were flying in the sky and stealing amazing broad views as much as our eyes were able to capture. A great thanks to Binod Sapkota and the team for the best recommendation.
