    Helicopter Flight to Namche- Lifelong Memories

    My friend who has done everest base camp trek earlier has suggested me to directly fly to Namche Bazaar instead of flying to lukla and trekking. So, I booked the flight to Namche Bazaar with aspiration adventure. We were not a pro hikers so exploring around the namche, tengboche and hiking up to hotel everest view was our plan. we are really happy that anjan made add on option of taking flight to Kala Patthar and back to kathmandu on next 4 days. Lifelong memories and experience.
