Trip Overview

The Everest View Heli Tour one of the most exciting and thrilling experiences of witnessing the wonders of Mount Everest. It is a fascinating adventure that presents to you the chance of immersing yourself in the ever flowing beauty and natural beguiles of the Everest landscape like no other. With a beautiful airplane ride to Lukla, you will get to enjoy the mountainous terrain of Nepal’s Khumbu in its most amazing form. Then as you fly deeper over the snowy vastness of the majestic mountains, you can see breath-taking aerial views of Mount Everest as well as many of its neighboring peaks in all their glory- as they present a daunting picture of giant Himalayan peaks jutting out like snowy spires. It truly is a beautiful journey that you must experience if you want to enjoy a new way of tasting the many nuances of the Sagarmatha!

The Everest View Heli Tour takes you to the beautiful Khumbu region- home of the legendary Sherpa people of the mountains. You will begin the journey first to Lukla where you can take in the contrasting landscape that differs so much from the hilly belt of the country. Surrounded by tall cliffs, the Lukla Airport is located atop a cliff with a short runway that makes landing and taking off an exciting mini adventure! The emerging mountain peaks will also let you get your initial encounters with the magnificent oddities of Everest. Then as you move further along the journey, you will visit the popular Syangboche airstrip from where you can see a beautiful panorama of the mountain valley of the Dudh Koshi. The sprawling topography of the river valley presents a gorgeous picture of coruscating mountain rivers and dainty villages and settlements among the verdant Himalayan woodlands. Moreover, the journey also includes a visit to the famous Everest View Hotel- a hotel recorded in the Guinness Book of World records as the highest-located Hotel in the world, boasting of amazing views of Mount Everest from all of its windows.

Correspondingly, the Everest View Heli Tour is a quick and easy way of really taking in the beauty of the Everest Mountains and the Khumbu’s riches without resorting to the exhaustion of a long trekking journey. It gives you the bird’s-eye view of the landscape and presents to you a world that is seemingly different than that of land trekking. Relish in the snowy shroud of the mountain as you sip warm butter tea from the hotel balcony. Feel like you are on a different planet as you breathe in the fresh mountain air as it flows through the many trenches and crevasses of cerulean peaks. Likewise, you will also visit the beautiful Khumjung village and can have a tour of the Hillary School and the village’s monastery. It is a daring journey of comfort and beauty blended perfectly together!

Thus, join us in the Everest View Heli Tour as it is a journey that will forever be embedded into your minds for years to come!

Hareth Alsaadi, Phillipines I went for Everest base camp trip by mid-Dec 2021. I was a little worried as I never went trekking in my entire life.. however, i did a lot of research and came across Nepal Hiking Team so I decided after much thought to go with them Initially, I was in contact with Ganga the CEO of the company... i was highly satisfied with his interaction and communication with me right from the beginning.. i had so many questions and concerns regarding the trip and he was able to guide me and answer me all my inquiries... the on-boarding process was smooth and easy.. when i arrived in Nepal I found everything ready starting from the person picking me up from the airport, the hotel, some equipment for the trek, full introductory meeting on what to expect from the journey, all ground transportation, and even before i left Nepal after the trek.. a PCR staff was provided and came to my hotel... As for my trekking guide Prakash. i am truly happy that i had him as my guide.. a very spectacular human being.. he was more than a guide.. he was a great companion as well.. he ensured that i was having a good time.. continuously shared his expertise of mountains, Sherpa people, and Nepalese culture.. he always went the extra mile to support me... even at days when it was tough for me to continue due to altitude sickness.. he encouraged me and inspired me not to give up on this lifetime journey.. he always puts health and safety first.. Despite all the challenges of Everest Base Camp trek.. but i am very glad i did it... and i did it with an excellent group of people.. Nepal Hiking Team.. i highly recommend them for anyone intends to go trekking in Nepal. Read this review on trip advisor (click here)
Peter, United States of America My friend and I recently spent 2 weeks in Nepal, guided by the Nepal Hiking Team. Our original trek was canceled by an international company,  and the Nepal Hiking Team stepped in flawlessly. Ganga answered all of our questions, had our safety as his top concern always, was flexible, and was gracious with his hospitality. From Kathmandu, Pokhara, to the various tea villages, all the way to ABC, our Nepal Hiking Team was phenomenal. Our guide Arjun and porter Prem were first class, helping us navigate and learn about the terrain, giving us sage advice, and also making sure we had a great time (thanks for the wine!). I felt truly connected with them and it was hard to leave! A massive thank you to the entire team. Let's summit one of those monsters together soon!
William Belue, USA Nepal Hiking was incredible starting with the airport pick up all the way to drop off at the end of the trip. I had a scenario in which the airline lost my luggage and NHT arrange for my boots to be delivered via helicopter. This alone speaks to the level of care they provide their clients. Our guide, Bal, was one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and his attention to detail truly made this experience for me. The accommodations, food, gear, etc all blew my expectations out of the water. If you are looking for a guided Nepal experience, please look no further. I met other trekkers along my journey who were paying more and receiving less. This trip was a surprise birthday present and I am already planning my next trip back.

Ahmed, USA Joined recently for an Everest Base Camp tour and it was simply spectacular! The team was well equipped with all logistics and planning and Ganga did a fantastic job with communication before and during the trip too. As for the trip itself, it far exceeded expectations as we got lucky with great clear weather and really enjoying our hiking. Our tour guide Bal was excellent as he had a lot of previous experience, very knowledgeable, friendly, and a fun person. The accommodations and food were good too. Overall I would highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team to others. Note: Read this review on Tripadvisor (Click here)  
Dave, USA Had a truly great time in the mountains with the Nepal Hiking Team. Arrived from the Pacific Northwest with my boomer mom to trek to Everest Base Camp. (Made it.) Our group included four other ladies who’d met in college and were reconnecting. Was tough going at times but the NHT crew led us well. Our guides and porters were professional, kind, generous, and attentive. Their work was difficult—carrying our extra stuff, monitoring our conditions as we gained altitude, maintaining morale if/when it flagged, teaching us about Nepali and Sherpa culture, and showing us the way—and they all performed legendarily. Ganga and Raj put a lot of thought into making our trek enjoyable. They took great care of my mom and were very proactive with those who faced any altitude-related issues. I’m no world traveler or experienced backpacker, but this trip felt particularly fun and special. It awakened in me a far greater curiosity for travel. The mountain experience—organized by Ganga and led by Raj and his team of guides and porters—will be a cherished memory. Our NHT crew were all good people. I enjoyed their company and guidance immensely. We fly home this evening from Kathmandu and I’m already excited to return with friends, family, or solo. I look forward to trekking with NHT, Ganga, and Raj again. Read this review on Tripadvisor.
