Amazing Everest base camp helicopter tour

Date: 03 - 07 - 2019

Few days left at Nepal before leaving back home. We (me, dad, mom, and sister) had already toured around Kathmandu and Pokhara with the team of Nepal Hiking Adventure. They managed all our tour packages and hotels during our trip to Nepal. We travelled to renowned UNESCO heritage sites of Kathmandu, Patan and beautiful lakes, temples, and viewpoints of Pokhara. Still, it wasn't enough so I advised my dad for a short mountain trip so we went to Bishnu, our Managing Director to discuss about it. He suggested many packages from which we chose Everest Base Camp helicopter tour. Choosing this trip was one of my greatest decision and achievements. As it turned out to be one of the unforgettable moments of our life. Our tour guide was Ram, who has been working in this field for a decade now. He was very kind, caring and helpful guy. He came to our hotel at 5 A.M and we left to airport which is 20 minutes drive from our hotel. There he introduced us with the pilot and the pilot convinced us he would make this trip safe and memorable. Soon we left the Kathmandu valley at 6 A.M, from the air we saw amazing aerial views of the entire Kathmandu valley. Along the way to Lukla, my sister and mom was quite scared. But we landed safely to the gateway of Everest at Tenzing Norgay Sherpa Airport also called Lukla Airport.  At Lukla, the helicopter landed for 10 to 15 minutes for refueling then we headed towards the base camp of the World’s Highest Mountain i.e. Mount Everest. This base camp is situated at an elevation of 5,363m. Within 35 minutes of helicopter flight, we reached our ultimate destination Everest Base Camp. Our guide informed us that the helicopter lands only for 15 minutes so we could leave before the weather turned bad. Along with our guide, pilot and family members, we went outside. I had never seen mountains so close in my entire life. This trip added extra excitement on me as I was on the base camp of the World’s Tallest Peak. The entire base camp was covered with snow and rocks along with colorful prayer flags which was embellishing the entire base camp.  We took photographs and videos with guides and pilots then we flew towards the Highest Altitude Hotel i.e. Everest View Hotel. Everest Hotel was situated at an elevation of 3,962m. Here, we landed for an hour to explore around the hotel and to have some breakfast. Our tour guide Ram suggested me to have popular Tibetan butter tea along with local bread which was so delicious to have along with exceptional views of the great Himalayas. Food prices were quite expensive but the quality and taste were excellent. Never expected to have such food varieties at this level of height. Anyway, we left back to Kathmandu valley. Reaching Kathmandu, Bishnu called us for our experience about this trip. I told him that it was the most adventuring and exciting journey of my life. We all thanked him and Ram for their wonderful services and making our trip special and unforgettable.  Without a doubt, if I ever made plans to visit Nepal I would love to visit this agency once more truly they deserve recognition as they provide excellent services and knows what we want. Highly recommend Nepal Hiking Adventure if you really want best tour services in Nepal. Once again an overwhelming thank you to Bishnu and his team. Everest helicopter tour is the best tour those who want to experience Everest and great apex touching mountain views without trekking for long days.

When me and my friends arrived in Kathmandu we actually didn't know what to anticipate. Straight away we understood our trip will be an unbelievable adventure by his kind, helpful and welcoming nature. I didn't find anythings to suggest Bishnu and his team. Everest base camp helicopter tour is unforgettable adventure of my life.  He organised such an excellent and inspirational itinerary for us. Along how things did not proceed according to plan due to climate conditions etc but Bishnu took charge and made sure everything went smoothly and did not disappoint us. On the last night that he brought us to a local Nepalese restaurant and this was the best ending to a perfect holiday. Thank you Bishnu for making our visit to Nepal one that we will never forget.
