Flight To Everest
Everest Base Camp Helicopter Flight was an amazing experience once in a lifetime. I and My Girlfriend, Lynda went to Everest Base Camp Helicopter Flight on April-18, 2018 through Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition Company. Really they are most professional organizing such a memorable trip with Sherpa guide. We do hardly recommend for climbers to go through Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition if you trust us.
