We did Everest base camp tour by helicopter. It was awesome experience. This guys has collaboration with Air dynasty helicopters so they give us the best price. Even best price than The helicopter company we asked previously. And once again the tour was awesome, it took 3 hours but we felt like it was just 3 mins.
