Choosing from tons of websites to go off when you arrive Nepal, it’s always nice to have friendly face meet you, take you their office at Thamel, go over with Everest Helicopter flight itinerary.. etc… before putting down money our trip was  really ONCE IN LIFETIME, and experiences

I will definitely never forget!  If anyone willing to do Heli tour to Mount Everest, I highly recommend considering Adventure Discovery Treks & Travel and Rabi.

flight to Everest Base Camp by helicopter reviews Shawn McGuire - Vancouver, Canada

Email: buddyboy409@yahoo.ca

In December 2017 I planned a short visit to Kathmandu for few days and always had thought to see Mt. Everest. I goggled and found Adventure Discovery Treks and Travel and inquired them for possibilities to join Helicopter flight to Everest Base Camp. Rabi replied me very soon and came to meet me at my hotel the Fairfield by Marriott Kathmandu.

We went to talk his office and made deal for the flight. He gave me entire details of flight at his office and showed me some spectacular picture from his recent flight and I was excited. Next day morning he picked me up from my hotel and took to Domestic terminal of Kathmandu airport. After an hour checking we flew to Lukla for refilling and continued our flight to Kalapatthar which is probably the view point for Mt Everest. We landed there for about 10minutes and took hundreds of pictures and returned Hotel Everest View for breakfasts. Enjoining breakfasts with scenic Himalayan range including Everest and Lhotse was life time memorable trip for me.

The weather was perfect and clear. Breakfasts were great in Hotel Everest View. Thanks to Adventure Discovery Treks and travel for operating this flight for me and especially thanks to Rabi who is owner of company for operating flight and making my stay pleasure in Nepal.

Well surely return soon Nepal and highly recommend this team to anyone visiting Nepal for this flight.
