CLIENTS REVIEW

What our customers say about us

Wonderful experience with majestic view of Mt. Everest

My wife and I with another couple (all in our mid 60s) went on a “Everest Base Camp tour” with helicopter from Air Dynasty. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience seeing the majestic Mt Everest. The helicopter took us to Everest View Hotel for a breakfast stop before going back to the base. Mr Ramesh Dhakal from Nepal Mountain Trekkers organized the tour for us. I would highly recommend Ramesh for his very efficient and professional service.
