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

Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
Stephen, Australia I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
Ian, Canada My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after - be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
Evelyn, Ireland Organised this trip from Australia with very limited trekking experience. Ganga and his team were extremely professional and approachable in answering our questions and providing guidance. The travel itinerary was tailor-made to suit our dates. The accommodation in Kathmandu was excellent, accommodation along the trek was the best available and our guide and porter were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Our flight to Lukla was cancelled and our guide Mr Bim had organised a helicopter within a few moments. Felt very safe and secure with the local knowledge and expertise. The Nepal Hiking Team look after you from start to finish; meeting you at the airport with a garland of flowers and wishing you farewell with a Nepalese scarf. We were a party of three from Ireland and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Couldn't recommend this company highly enough. I will be advising anyone from Ireland to use this local company for sheer value and professionalism!!
