    Thank you Nepal Trek Adventures for providing best and amazing view of Everest Base Camp. I had a tour to EBC by Helicopter in 2018 March. The view of Mt. Everest including other different mountains from the top by flying in the sky was just awesome. Binod, the managing director himself is well experienced and friendly who was with me as a guide during the tour. I had already gathered the information about Everest from different sources but the information shared by him through his experience was totally new to me. Highly recommended.

    A wonderful team of Nepal trek adventures had given a meaning to our journey to Nepal. We had a tour with this agency during our vacation. With no plan, I arrived in Nepal with my friends and we stay in Kathmandu for more than 5 days by visiting the sites of Kathmandu with the help of google. After that, we started feeling bored and wanted something different and new on our journey. We asked many friends what to do, one of my friends suggested me to try Helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp with NTA which he had already experienced. The cost of Helicopter EBC tour is very reasonable and the services, guide provided to us were awesome. Thankyou NTA and the team for all the things done by you.

    Appreciable cooperation and guidance


    Seeing the Everest from top by Peregrine sight is somewhat mesmerizing and out of the bound. I also wanted to explore Everest region since very long but time was not in my support. One day, while I was surfing on internet, I got to know about helicopter flight to Everest Base Camp so, I did further inquiry and contacted many agencies but the one with which I was impressed was Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition. So, I decided to go for it and fixed 3 days holidays in my office and moved on to start my journey to Everest. I already had contacted the MD Binod Sapkota about tour and my stays. Staffs were sent to receive me and I was transferred to a very good hotel where I spent night. Next morning, they came to hotel to receive me and we went away to the domestic terminal. On the way, I was introduced with 2 more explorers. They were so friendly and cheerful that we all became good friends immediately. After reaching terminal, we immediately went further to our helicopter where Mr. Sapkota was waiting for us. We shook our hands and after about 5 minutes of talk he gave signal to take the flight off. Finally, we flew. Seeing beautiful valley, rivers, waterfalls also gave us a very good experience. After some minutes of flight, we reached to the Base Camp. The place was so beautiful and Mr. Sapkota was telling every detail about the area including Himalayas. I personally felt the place so beautiful and mesmerizing and am planning again to visit the same place. Thank you Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition for making my tour successful and most beautiful experience of lifetime.

    Experience guide and awesome company


    Last week we went to Kathmandu for our business conference. The conference was intended to hold for 7 days by it was completed on 3 days. There was no any pressure and work load from company’s side too so we decided to spend remaining for days in Kathmandu roaming around. We were four in a group. We went to different culturally and naturally places like pashupatinath temple, swayambhunath mahachaitya, Nagarkot viewpoint, and many more. As we all know, Nepal is land if Himalayas. So, we decided to explore Himalayas too. For this, our first and last choice was Everest Base Camp. We looked up for a trustable company and we were recommended Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition. We contacted them and they organized this trip for us. The tour was about 5 hours long which provided us the clear view of Himalayan ranges including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, etc., lakes (Gokyo Lakes), beautiful hills, and many more. We also went to a hotel (Hotel Everest view- Hotel at highest altitude of the world), where we had our breakfast. After clicking lots of photos and videos, capturing the beautiful moments of our life, we flew back to Kathmandu from where we headed back to our hotel. Thank you Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition for fulfilling our combined dream to observe the Everest region closely in such a short period of time.
