I had extremely limited window of time to do anything and was thinking about skipping Nepal for this trip. But I as I had a 96 hour window and was already nearby in New Delhi I took the gamble. Normally I am a budget traveler and would not have considered this trip, as it is very expensive. My boss however wanted to do this trip and did not want to do it alone.... can you say "paid for by my boss"? Well it's a game changer. I could get used to Luxury traveling. The bottom line is that if you can afford the price of the trip do it! The excursion is shocking! Starting with the nail biting landing in Lukla to the beautiful views of the glaciers and peaks. The actual landing and time at the base camp is not the highlight of the trip, it is the flying to get there. I am going back when I have time and at that time I will do the hike into the base camp and it will be more impressive since I have the memories of the flight. I could not have gone to base camp any other way with my limited time. Again, if you have the funds available for this trip do it. I have done a lot of travelling, to 46 US states and 67 countries and this is the highlight of all my travelling .

I just returned from my fantastic trip to Everest base camp by helicopter. It was a wonderful experience. I booked a group joining helicopter tour as private trip was out of my budget. I enjoyed the company with other passenger of the flight. We chat a lot while waiting for the flight and had a lovely breakfast together at Hotel Everest view. The booking process was very easy and the company contacts me just right after I made the booking. They provide the very helpful tips before going on the flight. While we flew to Lukla, the weather on the way was not good and worried, we may not see the mountains, but when we go higher locations, the weather become more clear and clear. The landing in Kalapattar was amazing experience. We saw the many mountains including Mount Everest just in front of us which were unbelievable experience. If you are visiting Nepal and want to see the Himalayas, nothing can be better then Everest base camp helicopter tour. Highly highly recommended.
