“The overall experience was superb. Seeing Everest so close in such a short time was spectacular. The process is still a bit haphazard and could be smoother (more info on the route in advance, details about what to wear, slicker through the airport etc). However is was all fine and we loved it.”

Mt Everest Helicopter Tour
“This April I took part in a Mt. Everest base camp tour via helicopter through Unique Adventures. Everything necessary for the tour (flights, helicopter, etc.) were all reserved in advance and the program director personally picked me up from my hotel in the morning.

Unfortunately, due to bad weather, the helicopter tour did not take place. Despite the poor circumstances, Unique Adventures was more than willing to work with me on options and pricing given the circumstances. I truly appreciated their flexibility, and would be inclined to choose them for any Nepal based tours moving forward.”
