What people are saying about Bagmati Zone

OMG I cannot describe the feeling of flying to Kalapatthar and seeing the glorious Mount Everest !!! The trip started off with the uncertainty of the weather but we finally departed a bit later! The pilot of our aircraft MR Prakash was brilliant!! After we left Kathmandu and ascended over the valley I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! The experience of seeing us fly into Lukla and the take off again and then the landing at Pheriche was just surreal.We were split into a group of two and got around 15-20 minutes at Pheriche ….the feeling of being in the lap of the Himalayan mountains was just magical Then we flew to Kalapattar our pilot pointed out everything to us …the peaks …the Kumbhu ice falls ..the camps…then we landed at Kalapatthar…the view of Everest ,Nuptse were incredible….we just were so happy!!!we missed out on landing at Everest hotel as it started snowing but we can’t complain…we flew back safely and happy ….pl do this it is a dream come true !!A huge thanks!!!

It was a little cloudy, so regrettably we can not see the peak of the Mt. Everest. But the 3-4 hours fligth overall is very precious experience for us. We can see the small and dificult airport Lukla, and the nice view from the Hotel Everest view with a litte but warm breakfast. Of course the mountains view is very beautiful and mysterious, and the several glaciers are more. If I have fortunately another chance, I want to see the clear sky with.

Well organized, safe execution ... and then the best weather

Tautly organized, it starts immediately, pilots are versed, impressive experience. Can just be recommended. Standing time at the Everest View Hotel was particularly long, since the helicopter had to fly to the base camp for a short-term rescue operation. Even then there are people who "complain" ... just to be ashamed of others. Not to change, a special experience will be remembered.

Try it at least once in your life

Maybe you have to wait a few days for the weather conditions to be perfect as you climb up to the moraine of the Khumbu glacier at 5500 meters above sea level, but it is an experience that has no equal. Just for the breathtaking views that meet from Lukla to Everest Base Camp, is it worth coming to Nepal to try an incredible option.

I loved this tour! I was a last minute and Mukti and his team were very accommodating to find a spot for me and super nice and helpful. The views were just fantastic and it was more than worth the money as you are surrounding by stunning views for hours.
