Everest(8848m) which is top of the world, Makalu(8463m), and Lhotse (8516m) are the highest mountains seen from this flight. But if you choose the route via Gokyo you can see Cho Oyu(8201m) also one of the highest mountains over 8000m around the world. Lakes, Chortens, Monastery, and numerous village jungle and terrace land also another attraction of this tour. 

Namche to Everest Base Camp helicopter tour:

The most tourist Hub of Khumbu region- Namche Situated at 3440 m above the sea level and Pasang Lhamu Municipality. It is the gateway of the Everest region and most busy because tourists can stay there 3 nights in Everest Base camp trek. After the flight to Lukla and trek, two days then can reach Namche Bazar. Because of high altitude tourist need to acclimatize their body with high altitude so they need to rest there and when they complete the trek and back from Everest Base camp they stay one more night again. If they with trek Everest Panorama or Everest View also they stay two night here. Because one day they arrive and the next day they need to explore Namche or they need to go Khumjung, Khunde, and the world's highest altitude star hotel at Syangboche Hotel Everest View(3880m). so after exploring Namche the tourist like to go to Everest Base camp but their time frame is short so they like to Take the Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour from Namche. And back to Lukla or Kathmandu by helicopter. Some tourist cannot trek above from Namche because of high altitude and sickness but they like to see the majestic view of Everest Base Camp. So they choose this flight. They can see the Panoramic view of lots of Himalayan ranges like Thamserku, Kusum Kangaroo, Ama Dablam, Everest, Lhotse, Kwongde and several other peaks in this flight. If you book the flight via Gokyo you can see the majestic view of Gokyo lake, Gokyo RI, and Cho Oyu(8201m) also. So this flight is very important for travelers who reach Namche Bazaar but like to explore Everest Base camp with Khumbu Glacier and icefall.

Dingboche to Everest Base camp Helicopter tour:

Dingboche is the second acclimatization place in Everest base camp trekking. This place is very popular because the people who trek High pass and the trekkers who trek Kongma-la pass they must stay there. Dingboche situated at the valley and altitude of 4410m above the sea levels. In this high altitude, some trekkers can feel Acute Mountain Sickness and like to back Kathmandu through helicopter. But they can book a flight through Everest base camp too. Some trekkers bored with trekking because they have no habit of the trek in long-duration so they ask Mission Himalaya Treks for Heli tour and back to Kathmandu. They can enjoy the view of Chukung valley Lhotse and Lhotse Sar with Makalu, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Mt. Everest, and several Himalayan ranges with Khumbu icefall and Glacier. If they go through Gokyo they can enjoy lake view and different landscapes then another world they explore before. Helicopter tour views much nicer than trek view because you can see from high altitude.

Birendra took us up the mountain with a Helicopter flight. He was always very considerate in taking us to our Flight and breakfast and getting us refreshments when Everest View Hotel 3880m. The flight to the helicopter was so amazing and we saw lots of mountains during the flight and having breakfast time. I would definitely recommend Birendra and Mission Himalaya for future Trekking and tour.
