Unbelievable..!! extremely brilliant tour. One must try while visit in Nepal. I was on my business trip, I and my husband decided to have an extraordinary trip but initially, we don\'t have any idea where to go. As we were looking for a travel companion, we got a Master Himalaya. Then they suggest for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. Everything was perfectly organized from pick to drop. The view from the flight was breathtaking and the pilot was so supportive. I\'d like to thank the entire team of Master Himalaya for their support. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone willing to go Everest without Trek.

The whole trip was great shared many laughs and had a lovely breakfast at Hotel Everest View. All the crew members are very supportive. Highly recommended
