Why Everest base camp helicopter tour
The peak of Everest is the world's highest point i.e there's nothing above the Everest peak. Obviously, it's one of the most important landmarks in the world that every man should visit at least once. However, getting to Everest isn't easy. Most travelers trek for 10 to 15 days after months of planning and preparation. This is because many of them are uninformed about Everest base camp helicopter tours.
The bird's eye view of Everest from an altitude that is higher than the camp I is also a big plus. With three landings of almost 2 hours, the views you can see are as good as that of trekking. And unlike a mountain flight to Everest, you can actually capture all the beautiful photos and videos of yourself before the mountain.
Need no plan and preparation as the Everest helicopter tour can be booked in less than 24 hours before you fly to Nepal. With no limit on age, health, and nationality this helicopter tour to Everest can be done by anyone who cannot trek for such a long hour.
