I had felt the most amazing experience in my life during a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Kalapatther. It was the most thrilling moments ever I had. When the helicopter took off and headed toward the Everest region, omg! what great views. Everywhere big and large mountains, white snowcapped peaks, everything was very amazing. That all credit goes to the team of Luxury Holidays Nepal as they were all with me in every condition. They were always supportive, helpful, and always great to me. They provide everything that I was searching for with full luxury service and the best flight tour. And talking about the destination it was fabulous and mind-blowing.

Their work deserves an excellent rating, I like to suggest everyone make Heli tour. it is less risky, shortest and fastest.

I must share the trip of Mt. Everest I had last week via Helicopter from Kathmandu. Under the blue sky, the Himalayas were really mesmerizing. After leaving the Kathmandu, I found the landscape of Nepal was very hard and unique. I was at the height above 5000m while exploring the Mt. Everest. We could see different Himalayan ranges from place called Kalapattar.

Last month, I had a trip with my friend Jacob in Nepal. We had a first time helicopter tour for a day in Nepal. We were much luckier to have a favorable weather. The scenic view of the Himalayas was really astonishing. We saw the mightiest Mt. Everest from the Kalapattar. Not only the Mountain ranges, we also discovered the landscapes as well as avalanches from the sky view. It was really awesome moment we had in our trip. I personally would like to thank Luxury Holidays Nepal for this trip.

It was one of the best Helicopter tours I ever had in my life. The breathtaking view of the Everest region from the Helicopter tour was really awesome. The Helipad landed in Kalapattar which was in the height of 5555m from sea level. You definitely will feel new experience in such a great height. I also explored highest mountain in the world along with the alpine zone and Gokyo valley of Nepal. It was really the best and prefect tour for me. I explored many things that I never had experience before. This tour can be the perfect packages for people having short time in Kathmandu. It was wonderful to have flight in helicopter with team of Luxury Holidays Nepal.

We were fortunate to see the Mt. Everest while exploring the Nepal tour. Last month I and my family had a luxury helicopter tour to explore the Mt. Everest. I can’t believe that we saw live avalanche from the helicopter while exploring the Khumbu region and Himalayas. After having the aerial view we landed to Kalapattar and explored the beautiful Everest and other big mountains. It was very direful and memorable helicopter tour of my life.
