    Nepal Trek Adventures provides the best booking service for a fun Chopper Ride, either it is long distanced or short distanced. I was planning to visit Lukla and Namche for a short look-out around the region. As I didn’t have much time on my hand, I needed something that was short and quick but safety was my first priority. The helicopter ride to and from Lukla was a great option. The views that I got from the chopper was marvelous. One must try it once in life. My chopper was on time and I did not have to wait for my take offs and landings at all. The Nepal Trek team helped me to manage hotels at Lukla and Namche too, at my request. They have a very cooperative team and provide the best options for traveling by Helicopter. Thumbs up!

    Amazing Helicopter Ride from Lukla to Kathmandu

    The helicopter ride from Lukla to Kathmandu was amazing. I have been to Lukla through domestic flights and was always worried about my landing and takeoffs. There used to be some percentage of fear within my heart. But it was not the case with a helicopter flight. The helicopter tour assured me of my safety and security, which was not possible on regular flights. With a comfortable ride around the beautiful Himalayas, I enjoyed the scenes of high mountains, greenery, river, and different natural aspects all around the helicopter route. I have to say, the experience was so much different than that through flight which used to be filled with continuous fear about landing and takeoff. I truly loved my helicopter flight between Kathmandu and Lukla. Most prescribed!

    I was worried about my helicopter ride from Lukla. As I had seen, the domestic flights were somewhat disappointing and didn’t feel secure at all. I wasn’t expecting the helicopter to be a different story. It looked brand new with comfortable seats. I have had previous Heli tours and I think I can critique the helicopter pretty well. But I didn’t need to, it was perfect and easy-going. With an easy take-off and a quick stroll around the mountain regions, it was a fun adventure to look around the beautiful nature and environment of Mount Everest from the chopper. I loved the Kathmandu valley sky view. The landing was great, filled with thrill and excitement. I highly recommend the Helicopter booking from Nepal Trek Adventures coz they are great!

    Getting a Heli ride to Lukla is not easy; however, it wasn’t a problem for me. My travel company is Nepal Trek Adventures. I had heard the flight to Lukla is dangerous and wasn't sure if I wanted to take the flight. I consulted with the NTA and they recommended the Helicopter ride to Lukla. I thought it was the best option. I wasn’t wrong, getting to Lukla which is surrounded by high mountains is difficult. But with the Heli, you will have an easy ride to the airport. The mountain views are amazing and you can enjoy your time as you land in Lukla. Recommended one!

    It is difficult to have a good flight to Lukla. But not for me! Since I wanted to trek around Everest, the helicopter tour to Lukla and a quick ride back to Kathmandu were just perfect. I did not have to wait long as I had to wait for regular normal flight, and it was just an easy helicopter pick up drop-off ride to and from Lukla.  The views from the helicopter were vastly different than that from airplane flight as you get a closer look at the beautiful mountains and the Kathmandu city. I loved my helicopter ride. Thank you, NTA for my fast and last-minute booking of the helicopter ride to Lukla from Kathmandu. And of course, thumbs for your perfect pick up and drop off time. I highly recommend this helicopter ride from Kathmandu to Lukla with the NTA team!

    I was planning to trek to the EBC. Watching a lot of videos and comments online, I chose the helicopter ride to Lukla and booked it with the NTA team. The views from the Heli that I saw were simply wonderful. The Himalayan range around the Mt Everest has a charming one. I saw it and believed that I recommend it to all. I had no problems with my Lukla Heli flight booking and the flight was on time. Also, it was very comfortable. As I dropped in Lukla, I could see tired faces of travelers from the flight, but I was perfectly fine and enjoying the view around me to the fullest. Definitely, the best way to go to the Everest!

    Personally, I believe that the chopper ride to Lukla from Kathmandu was a simple comfortable way to get to this place. I didn’t have problems with my pickoff and drop-off ride that I had with the chopper. I was able to enjoy the beautiful mountain views and the surrounding green hills. Most amazing was the Lukla Airport. The airport located in this deep valley is said to be one of the most incredible, if not the most dangerous airport. The slanted runway is scary to see but was the great experience of landing there. It was the best ride for trekking to the Everest Region. Most prescribed!

    Choosing NTA for Heli Tour to Lukla

    Rating:

    NTA is probably the best bet if we are traveling to Lukla in the most luxurious and memorable way. It is very troublesome to book a Heli ride yourself. Also, many agencies take a long time to finalize your bookings. NTA, however, do their work very swiftly. In my last visit to Nepal, I chose the NTA for the base camp Heli ride. This time too, I chose the NTA for booking my Heli Tour to Lukla. You will know why the helicopter trip is so important after you land at the airport. The people waiting for their flights, and people paces when they drop off from their flights tell you their story. Many foreigners will be scared of the airplane flight. If you can go for the Heli option, it will be the easiest way for reaching there and having the best sight of high mountains and surroundings. Must choose NTA for Heli Tour to Lukla!

    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.

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.

    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.

    I wanted to travel to Lukla region and had only 3 days remaining in Nepal. The day I wanted to go to Lukla, there were no flights due to the bad weather. As the NTA team understood my situation, they suggested the helicopter flight and soon booked a helicopter for me. The helicopter flight was possible in that weather and the view were little unclear but were awesome. I soon reached in Lukla and this was possible only due to Nepal Trek Adventures. I'm so glad that I chose NTA for this journey.

  • Don’t buy an open-ended return ticket. If the weather is bad and flights are canceled, you will be at the back of the queue for standby seats and could wait days. Get a fixed date or just buy a single one. It’s easy to buy a return ticket from Lukla when you are ready.
  • Sit on the left for best views.
  • Take earplugs for the flight or use the cotton wool.
  • Be prepared for a delay, take snacks.
  • Children’s tickets are cheaper than adults.
  • Carry your own kinds of stuff so that trip gets easier for you.
  • You are traveling at higher altitude so be prepared.
