well organized Everest helicopter tour

Good and happy tours. I loved it. It was a sharing helicopter flight to Everest base camp. 5 of us flew from Kathmandu, the route was to Lukla, Pheriche and Kalapather stop after EBC overfly. on the return leg stopped at Hotel Everest view and back to Kathmandu. It was 3.5hrs life time flight experience.

Everest base camp helicopter tour with Rajan from HHS

This company is great for anyone who wants to visit Nepal and Himalayas. Emails are answered quickly and there is total flexibility in assembling the tours. Nepal is still rebuilding the earthquake of 2015, but many monuments have been preserved and others have been renovated. It is a beautiful country. I made two unforgettable helicopter landing tours to Annapurna Base Camp in the Pokhara region, and to Everest Base Camp kalapather. As flights are shared with other tourists it does not get so expensive. And worth every penny you get in the center of the Himalayas!

Review of Everest Base camp helicopter tour with landing

We arrived at Himalaya Holiday Service after looking for many options for the helicopter trip to Everest, and the truth is that we were not wrong. Rajan was always attentive to answer the WhatsApps we sent him and went to the hotel to chat with us and receive payment. On the day of the flight, he perfectly coordinated the taxis and helicopters. Everything safe, everything as it should be. Excellent experience, highly recommended

Everest base camp helicopter tour review

From pre trip communication till the end of the trip we have wonderful time with the team of HHS. Everest base camp was very cold for us in November. We highly recommend Everest base camp helicopter tour with landing to any one who has short time and not willing to trek.

Helicopter tour to Everest Base camp and Tibet Bhutan tour

we had a lot confusions during planning the trip like cost, services we get and weather. Dipak answered all our questions with in few hours and we paid him some deposit in the beginning. His staffs gave us excellent service. We never forget the landing at Mount Everest Base camp and Tigers Nest hike. Our visit to Pothala Palace was unique. Thank you all.

Mount Everest base camp by Helicopter

Hi Rajan,

I wrote already in Trip Advisor but happy to tell you that we have loved the country and the trip.
Singe and Kinley were very attentive with us, always in time and taking care of us at all times.
we are very satisfied with the trip and all people following us in our trips (I had sent more than two thousand photos by whats-app) were amazed of the beauty of Everest and for sure they will go and visit it.
We would also like to come back and see other regions and your suggestions will be very welcome.
Thank you very much for your help and we hope to contact you in the future.

Best regards,

Alfonso de Pedro

Mount Everest helicopter tour

Me and my wife dreamed to go to the mount Everest base camp by doing 2 weeks trekking but never got enough time and changed our mind and asked to Rajan to do one day private helicopter tour to Base camp. He arranged all smoothly. We stopped at base camp and took some pictures then have Champagne at Everest view hotel. It is worth doing it. Highly recommended if you have only few days in Nepal.

Everest helicopter tour package

Beautiful trip to Everest base camp (EBC)
we booked a group joining helicopter tour package to Everest base camp for March 5th. In the morning weather was bit cloudy in Katmandu and flight was delayed by 20 minutes. Once we got to Lukla weather was fantastic. when we took of from Lukla to Kalapather we had to split due to weight in high altitude. First flight was for 2 people and last flight was for rest of all. When we landed at Everest base camp Kalapather we did not see a spot of cloud, cloud was very blue – I have never seen that blue in other world. It is expensive trip but worth doing it it you get sharing chance with a small group.
