Namche Heli from KTM
I had a long itinerary of EBC Trek and Gokyo Ri trek. So to reduce the days, I wanted to fly directly from Kathmandu to Namche Bazar. I also cut the acclimatization days in Namche and Dingboche. This flight not only helped me achieve my trek goal but also rewarded breathtaking view of Everest and other highest peaks.

Namche Heli Tour
Just before we flew to Lukla from Kathmandu, I got to know that we could fly directly to Namche from Kaathmandu. So I inquired about the heli flight and instantly booked for a reasonable price. We board a heli to Namche and saved 2 days for the trek.

Great Views!!!!
The mountain vista was out of this world, never had I ever had such great views to embrace. This short heli tour was worth every penny. Thanks to Third Rock for this amazing heli tour. If you're planning to do so make sure you are ready to tackle the queue at the TIA airport and maybe WAIT for more than usual time!

Good Service
I had to cancel the heli KATHMANDU TO NAMCHE BAZAAR BY HELICOPTER due to persistent bad weather. Naba and I had a daily exchange of emails and calls. He suggested me to cancel and see in about a 3-4 days. Until then he suggested me CITY TOUR OF KATHMANDU and I did it exploring the UNESCO world heritage sites of Kathmandu. Finally after 3 days the weather was open for heli flight. I immediately booked it and flew to Namche Bazaar. It was great service by the company.

Must do heli tour .
It was an amazing experience to hover over the Himalayas from Kathmandu and reach Namche Bazaar in just about an hour. But make sure you know about weight limit. If you choose Third Rock for this, you need not worry about it. They will inform and help you with it. Also they have safety at the top priority.
