Special Notice: Due to unpredictable weather conditions in the Himalayas, there may be unforeseen schedule changes in domestic flights to Lukla and from Lukla. The flights may be delayed for several hours or pushed back by a day or more, depending on the circumstances. Although this is rare, it can happen even during the best trekking seasons. As you know, high altitude weather conditions can be difficult to predict. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you plan for this by allowing for an extra day or two in Nepal after your trek, if possible.

Our daughter surprised us by an invitation to an exciting Everest base camp trek helicopter trek in March during his Thanks Giving holidays in Nepal. During and along the entire Everest base camp helicopter trek – 11 Days, on the path or in the tea houses, Kulendra with extreme kindness always checked we were getting the best of the incredible experience. We are very grateful to the Nepal Tours team and especially to Kulendra. We highly recommend them to everyone.

We booked our 11 days Everest base camp helicopter trek with Nepal Tours as they response my email very quick, all the positive reviews online and best price they offer me. So, if you are thinking of going to Nepal, you are highly recommended this company. The Everest base camp helicopter trek was very well organized and very professionally run. The guide (Sancha) and porter (hari) are very knowledgeable and professional as well as being really friendly with lots of jokes and laughs. They really did become part of our family while we were on trek.
