I had a plan for a helicopter tour to Mount Everest base camp, but the weather was bad, so it got canceled. But Surya was amazing! He arranged another flight for me the next day, and he didn’t charge me extra. I highly recommend Surya because he’s well-organized, honest, and reliable in setting everything up. My only regret is that I didn’t find Surya earlier during my time in Nepal. If I did, he could have helped me with more back country tours. I was really impressed with Surya, and I totally recommend him and all the services he can offer. If you want to explore Nepal and have someone trustworthy to take care of you, Surya is the best!
