    My wife and I was Traveling to Nepal for our Honeymoon trip without any fixed plan. When we landed in Kathmandu hotel car driver waiting and drive to our Hotel. As Mr Bhupendra(Li) was recommended by our friend from Shanghai, contacted him for the trip in Nepal. Quickly catch our intention and offer us Mount Everest Heli tour. We did not expected that we will see and touch the mount Everest Base in such a short period, but he easily said it worth it. We signed up for the trip even though it was little high cost but it was our Honeymoon trip once in a life.
    Next day early in the morning at 6.30 he came tp pick us up by car and drive to airport and frly to lukla about 45 minutes and landed there for off load the fuel and fly to EBC Kalapathar and landed for only 5 minutes. It was very short time but we were able to take some pictures of mountain, which was marvelous and fly back to Everest View Hotel which is one of the highest hotel in the world in elevation of 3900m, we stopped there for breakfast about 40 minutes. it was really nice there and we enjoyed the breakfast with great mountain views, this was amazing …. … After the breakfast we fly back to Lukla for re-fill the fuel and fly to Kathmandu. It took us about 4 hour but it was definitely great experience.
    I like to recommend View Nepal Treks and Expedition company and Mr. Bhupendra for any tour and heli service in Nepal. You are the best, who understand well and arranged well trip for my life time memory.
    Thank you and keep going .
