    Helicopter transfers arranged with max efficiency

    We used the services of Aspiration Adventures to organise helicopter transfers to and from Lukla. I cannot praise the company highly enough for the quality of their service package. I was particularly happy that when we needed to change the date of our return, this was done smoothly and speedily. We were picked up and returned to our hotel, and the transfers could not have been more efficient. We'll done, Ajnan!

    Glad we had Anjan

    We decided to trek to EBC and enlisted aspiration adventure to organize our flights to lulka and our helicopter flight from gorakshep, we unfortunately got sick in Namche and needed a quick escape. Anjan was our agent and was honestly was a god send. He reorganized our helicopter ride from namche within an hour, picked us up from the airport and looked after us like his own family. What a legend, if you are considering doing a trek you need Anjan on your side! He was our insurance and friend all in one.
