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!

Reviews

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
