8. Why is a helicopter tour the best travelling option in Nepal?
While Nepal is well known for the pristine trekking route, not everyone can complete the harsh trekking adventure. Hence, a short but fulfilling helicopter trip to Everest Base Camp is your best travelling option.
9. Why can’t a helicopter go as high as an aeroplane?
Helicopters require a particular lift to fly. Helicopters fly around 15,000 to 18,000 feet. The lack of air in the high altitude regions is the reason why a helicopter can go as high as aeroplanes.
