Excellent ways to get close to Mt. Everest and giant peaks of Himalayan range.It was out of my dreams, being so close within towering giant peaks with Mt. Everest at near distance. A great trip on Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour of few hours, truly recommendable for those who not have enough time to trek.  It was so awesome and fascinating from the moment of take-off to landing facing  mind-blowing views of Himalayan chain of peaks. Although it did not land at Everest base camp due to technical region, as well unsafe for landing the chopper. But the views from the base of high Kalapathar Hill, was so brilliant it was a breathtaking moments for all of us. Thanks to Team Himalaya for arranging this wonderful Everest Helicopter Tour.
