    This four-hour helicopter flight to Everest Base Camp took us to the Everest region and landed at the Kalapatther viewpoint, which is about 5500m high. The helicopter flew low near the base camp so that we could also enjoy the view of the Mount Everest base camp. The fantastic thing about the trip is the landing at the Kalapatther viewpoint in Syngboche. The views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse were impressive and very close. The tour is value for money. An excellent ground assistance team with delivery and collection at the airport. Thank you for organizing this delightful trip.
