Heli- Trekking in Everest Region
Is it possible to trek to Everest region and return to Kathmandu in two days? It may seem unbelievable (what with AMS & other health concerns), but yes we have made it possible! How did we do it? Read our trip our report on the Everest Heli-Trek that we organized for Danish clients Mr. Ole Andersen & Ms. Line Gjessoe Andersen.
The father and daughter duo Mr. Ole Andersen & Ms. Line Gjessoe Andersen, after arriving in Kathmandu, were flown to Lukla on 14th May 2011. From Lukla they began their two-day trek to Shyangboche.
