One of the world's most exclusive tours (Everest Experience Flight or Everest mountain Flights). Can the magic of flight ever be carried by words? “Why do you want to climb the Everest?” was the question which prompted the now world famous quip,“because it’s there!”  We have for decades tried to comprehend what it is that drives men to push themselves to the limits of their physical and mental endurance. Many have tried but failed to summit the Everest, the highest peak in the world. It has been the exclusive realm of a select breed of mountaineers, always inaccessible to other mortals. The Everest Express, one of the world’s most exclusive tours, is a lifetime experience. A flight that takes you deep into the Himalayas, flying into valleys close to the rock face, as close as five nautical miles from the Everest itself. Now you can see the stunning beauty of nature; raw, undiluted and truly majestic.

Everest Base Camp Trek and Fly Back by Helicopter tour, we trek to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest, and visit Kala Patthar which is another most sought after destination in the Everest region. The 12 day trip begins in Kathmandu and we fly to Lukla the next day and begin trekking from there. We charter a helicopter on our way back to Lukla from Gorak Shep. Another exciting part of our Everest trip is the helicopter tour over the pristine Gokyo Lake, which is also a popular trekking destination among trekkers who travel the Everest region.

Arriving at Kathmandu International Airport at 4.30am was painful, as was the $130.00 airfare! Yet, after we were all strapped into our seats in the twin-engine 26 seater aircraft, we were soon up and away before the daily mist, fog and smog descended upon Kathmandu...More
