Fantastic Everest Helicopter Tour

We recently done the Everest helicopter tour organized by Hari Bhatta of Life Dream Adventure. Hari is a good communicator and was with us in every step of the way from initial planning to finish of the tour. We had some amazing views of Kala Patther and Mount Everest during our helicopter ride. The service was really satisfying.

We highly recommend Life Dream Adventure Tours for organizing Mountain heli-tours. The team was professional and highly attentive to customers.

Helicopter tour of Mt. Everest Base Camp

This trip was a very last minute decision on our part, but Life Dream Adventures were very quick to respond and accommodated our requests. Everything was simple and efficient. My one "must do" in Nepal was to see Mount Everest. Didn’t have enough time to do the trek and the flight around the Himalayas seemed lame. We found the option to have a freaking helicopter take us up into the Himalayas and we jumped at the opportunity. For anyone who wants a lifetime story to share, Do This!! You won’t regret it.
