Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return is one of the fastest ways to reach the very base of the world's highest mountain and return in a short time, especially for people who dream of walking into the heart of Everest with limited vacation time.
Everest Base Camp Helicopter Trekking Beautiful and impressive Sherpa villages, Everest's highlanders, and male-folk pioneers in their early days as mountain guides Tenzing and Hillary first set foot on the summit of Everest on May 29, 1953.

Apart from the amazing view of beautiful landscapes and high mountain scenery, the culture and traditional heritage life of the native Sherpas are equally fascinating and worth visiting, as is enjoying the culture and warm hospitality on the trekking route and spending the night in nice lodges around the beautiful Sherpa villages.

Trekking to EBC and back to Kathmandu on a scheduled helicopter flight from the capital city, Kathmandu begins to reach the high Khumbu in the North Central Himalayan region of Nepal, around the town of Lukla, where our trek begins and enters Sherpa country, encountering incredible mountain views along the trek.

Trekking to reach the famous Namche Bazaar, the main town or village of Khumbu, and then on a scenic trail to reach beautiful Tengboche, surrounded by an array of peaks with views of Mt. Everest and majestic Amdablam lined with green vegetation and towering tree lines.

Enjoy an interior tour of the much-interested Tengboche Monastery as we make our way beyond the tree lines within the windswept landscapes of the high mountains to reach our main highlight and final destination at the world's highest base camp, Everest Base Camp.

Marvel at the exquisitely beautiful surroundings of the high mountains with close-up views of the huge Khumbu Icefall and glaciers, then the adventure takes you to the highest point of Kala Patthar at an altitude of 5,545 meters with a breath-taking view of the peaks along with Mount Everest, Pumori, Lhotse, and Nuptse.

Spending amazing time and experiencing the best and most picturesque places in the high Khumbu valley, ending the scenic and adventurous trek with a smooth helicopter flight to Kathmandu via Lukla, and returning helicopter with fun moments and everlasting memories of Everest Base Camp Trekking.

Best Time For The Everest Base Camp Trek With Helicopter Return

The best time for the Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek with a helicopter return is during the pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons in Nepal. These seasons offer the most favorable weather conditions and clearer skies, making the trek and helicopter return more enjoyable and safe.

Spring Season (March to May):

The spring season is one of the most popular times for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is generally stable and mild, with warmer temperatures during the day and cooler nights. The trekking trails are adorned with colorful rhododendron flowers in full bloom, creating a picturesque landscape. The visibility is usually good, providing excellent views of the surrounding mountains, including Mount Everest.

Autumn Season (September to November):

The autumn season is another excellent time for the EBC Trek, with a helicopter return. This season follows the monsoon, and the weather is typically clear, dry, and stable. The temperatures are pleasant, and the skies are usually free of clouds, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Himalayas throughout the trek. The autumn months are the most popular among trekkers due to the favorable weather and stunning scenery.

During both the spring and autumn seasons, the trekking trails are well-established, and tea houses along the route are open and fully operational. It is recommended to plan your trek between the beginning of March and early June for the spring season and from late September to November for the autumn season.

When opting for a helicopter return, you can choose to take a helicopter from Everest Base Camp itself or from Gorak Shep, which is the last teahouse settlement before reaching the base camp. The helicopter ride will provide you with a scenic aerial view of the region and save you time compared to trekking back the same way.

Keep in mind that weather conditions in the mountains can be unpredictable, so it's essential to check the weather forecast and be prepared for sudden changes.

We are selling several related trekking packages for Everest Base Camp Trekking, please check them out below:

Drop the luggage and most of the things at the hotel in Gorakshep, then with a small day pack, walk to base camp, while walking to base camp and back only on the glacier and ice. Once you reach the base camp, take time to take pictures, and videos, and enjoy the view. After that, it's back the same way to Gorakshep overnight.

Your luggage will remain at the hotel as you embark on this day hike, carrying only a daypack.

As you depart from the village, you will traverse a sandy terrain leading you towards Kala Patthar. Along this route, you'll be treated to views of the Pumori mountain, which looms just beyond the rocky hills. The trail is relatively straightforward and enjoyable, providing you with a respite from strenuous hiking. Instead, you'll be treated to picturesque vistas of the Everest Region.

Everest like never before, with a crystal-clear view of its majestic peak. Moreover, this vantage point affords you glimpses of glaciers, lakes, and other nearby mountains. Experiencing this sight firsthand will leave no doubt as to why it is acclaimed as the best viewpoint.

Don't forget to capture plenty of photographs before retracing your steps back to Gorakshep, following the same path you took.

After breakfast, you will gather your belongings and bid farewell to Gorakshep. As you stand on the brink of concluding your remarkable journey, the helicopter will prepare for its flight. The duration of this helicopter flight from Gorakshep to Kathmandu will be approximately one hour and thirty minutes, assuming clear weather conditions, exclusive of ground handling time.

Why is it a good choice to take a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Gorakshep to Kathmandu?

Taking a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Gorakshep in the Everest region of Nepal offers several compelling advantages. First and foremost, it's a highly time-efficient choice. Helicopters are significantly faster than trekking, saving precious days for travelers with limited time to explore the region. Additionally, the notorious weather-related delays at Lukla's airstrip can disrupt fixed-wing flights, while helicopters are more versatile, often providing a more reliable means of transportation.

Furthermore, the scenic experience is unparalleled. Helicopter passengers are treated to breathtaking views of the Himalayan landscape, including panoramic vistas of iconic peaks like Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse. This aerial perspective adds a unique dimension to the journey.

Comfort and convenience are additional benefits. Helicopters offer a smoother and more comfortable ride compared to crowded flights or grueling treks. Passengers enjoy more personal space and less physical exertion.

Moreover, in case of emergencies, a helicopter can be a literal lifesaver, allowing rapid evacuation to lower altitudes or Kathmandu's medical facilities. The option for customization is also appealing; you can tailor the departure time and locations to suit your preferences.

While helicopter flights are pricier than other modes of transport, the advantages, including avoiding crowds and reducing physical exertion, make them a valuable choice for those who can afford the experience. Overall, a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Gorakshep offers an efficient, comfortable, and visually stunning way to access the breathtaking beauty of the Everest region.

Best time for Everest Base Camp Trek

Climate is a decisive factor that greatly influences the success of a trek. However, it is difficult to accurately predict the weather in the Everest region. Although professionals, locals, and thrill-seekers trek to the base camp throughout the year, the best time to trek to EBC is either spring or autumn for warmth and a high chance of clear skies.
Trekking is a bit challenging but possible in winter and monsoon. Mountain Magic Treks organizes treks during these seasons as well.

Himalayan weather is unpredictable and temperatures can change quickly.

EBC: Cold season (January and February)

It is the coldest season with heavy snowfall and low temperatures. Daytime is usually warm, but nights are cool. Although Mountain Magic conducts the trek during these times, we do not recommend you to trek during these two months, especially if you are allergic to cold. However, if you decide to trek during these months, our team will ensure that you are safe, secure, and comfortable.

Temperature: 15°C to -15°C.

EBC: Best Season (March to April)

March to April is also a great season for trekking to base camp. This season offers stunning views of the Himalayas and fascinating glaciers. From March, the weather starts to warm, and by mid-March, the sky clears, and the snowy mountains will look their best.

Temperature: 18 °C to -12 °C. 

EBC: Good weather (May to June)

May to June is also the best time for trekking as it is the pre-monsoon period. Generally, it starts raining in Nepal from the month of June and lasts till mid-August. So if you want to avoid the rain and trek when the temperature is hot, this is the perfect time for you. The scenery at this time is breathtaking and beautiful.

Temperature: 25°C to -5°C.

EBC: Rainy Season (July to August)

It is raining in Nepal during this period and Lukla flight may be canceled. Trekking becomes challenging but not impossible. If you decide to trek during this period, Mountain Magic will ensure your safety, security, and comfort. One of the advantages of trekking in this season is that the trails are less crowded, and the waterfalls look beautiful.

Temperature: 27°C to 5°C.

EBC: Best Season (September to October)

September to October is one of the best seasons for the EBC trek. As the monsoons slowly recede, the weather looks absolutely lovely, and hordes of trekkers will be on their way to the base camp. Due to the weather, scenery, and comfort level, we recommend you to trek during this time. An added advantage – it is also the festival season in Nepal, and if you trek during this time, you will get to enjoy the festivities.

Temperature: 20 degrees Celsius to 5 degrees Celsius.

EBC: Good weather (November to December)

The month of November offers a great time for trekking, the skies are clear, and the view of the mountains is breathtaking. The temperature during the day is very constant. As November progresses, winter slowly sets in, snow begins to fall, and trekking becomes difficult. By December, temperatures drop to annual lows.

Temperature: 18°C ​​to -10°C

How long does it take to acclimate to EBC?

The highest elevation we reach is Kala Patthar at 5,545 meters. Our trekking itinerary includes two days of relaxation and acclimatization in Namche and Dingboche. Altitude sickness is very common but preventable. However, if you ignore the symptoms, it can be serious. 

Mountain Magic Treks guides and trek leaders have completed extensive first aid training and use oximeters to monitor your oxygen levels to detect early altitude sickness. Furthermore, we have designed our itinerary to prevent altitude sickness. However, for severe mountain sickness cases, the only treatment is immediate descent. Your group leader has the right to stop the climb considering the condition of vulnerable persons.

EBC Trip Grade: Fitness Level and Health information

Exercising regularly a few weeks before your trip will increase your stamina. Anyone with normal fitness can complete the trek. However, the fitter you are, the more enjoyable your experience will be. We recommend that you conduct stamina-building exercises a few weeks before your trip. 

Previous hiking experience would be an added advantage, but no technical experience or skill is required. With a light day pack, participants who can walk for 5 to 6 hours a day, at a reasonable pace, can complete this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform us or consult their physician before booking the trek.

EBC Trekking in Group or Single

We organize group and private treks. Group discounts are available based on the size of your team. The bigger your team, the more discount Mountain Magic Treks gathers a group, you will not qualify for the discount.
We can handle all group sizes. Your group will include a group leader, a porter for every two treks, and an assistant guide for groups of 6 or more. 

A typical day during the trek

Each day brings a unique experience of trekking, climbing, enjoying the view, taking photos, and exploring the local villages. Experienced expert Sherpas will share information and historical facts about the places as you trek. The day starts with breakfast, and then we head out from 7 am to 8 am depending on the duration and nature of that day's hike. After three hours of trekking, we have lunch and some rest, then proceed to our destination for the day.
Once we reach our overnight lodge/tea house, we have extra dietary food. You will have some free time to explore nearby places every day and better to walk around than stay in the room.

You will have dinner from 6 pm to 7 pm, and after dinner, we will have time for socializing. Your trek leader will brief you about the next day's plans. After the briefing and before going to bed, you will have time to enjoy reading, Monopoly, playing cards, or watching mountaineering documentaries.

Communication during the trek

You can enjoy Wi-Fi at extra cost in lodges/restaurants/hotels, but at higher altitudes, communication will be via phone. Our Mountain Magic Treks office in Kathmandu will be in touch with each team through the trek leaders at least once a day. Mobile signal is weak at high altitudes. If you want, you can easily buy a local SIM card in Kathmandu. You can get Wi-Fi access in lodges/hotels at an additional cost.

Additional personal expenses during trekking

This policy should cover medical and emergency repatriation at high altitudes (up to 6000 meters) along with helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses. We may recommend insurance companies based on the recommendations of our previous clients, but we do not sell insurance policies.

Trekking members are requested to send their details – including insurance information after they book for trekking. In the event of an emergency, we will use your insurance policy and the information documents you have sent us. This will help us arrange a quick and efficient rescue operation and transfer to a medical facility if necessary. Before purchasing travel insurance, call the company and double-check if they have heli-rescue and evacuation at altitudes up to 6000 meters.

Mr Rewati was our tour guide for this trip. He was amazing. Communication was easy. He was very professional and made sure that we were comfortable during the entire EBC Trek and return Back by helicopter tour. We were a family of 3. Our Guide was very helpful and experienced in EBC trek and everything. Our captain made sure that we were ok upon taking up from Gorakshep. We spent about 5-10 minutes on a helicopter around Everest base camp and Kalapatthar before heading back to the Lukla. The views were more spectacular by helicopter than by trekking to EBC.

This is one of the best options to choose (EBC Trek with Helicopter return. We even made a pitstop at Lukla airport for refueling which was in itself an amazing experience. We never felt rushed as we took our time walking around in some of our pitstops, especially after landing at Lukla airport. Book this Everest Base Camp Trek with a return by Helicopter tour with Mr Rewati. He will take care of you. You won’t regret it. 5 stars for a comfortable flight, and professional service while trekking to Everest Base Camp!

Thank you for Mountain Magic Treks Team! We did Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return
 It was such a great experience! The trek was perfectly organized, the hotel was 4* in Kathmandu (Yatri Suites and Spa). In the mountains lodges were nice and clean, according to our requests meals always good and with several options to choose and we had an amazing trip leader and porter: our trip leader Khem did everything to make us feel at home. He was always available and took care of all our needs.
. The assistants, among which Rabin, were also nice and super helpful. We did the Kilimanjaro also last year but we did not feel that helpful as this team. The team gave us great comfort during challenging times (especially at higher altitudes, when we were tired and the trek was more difficult). Needless to say, the trek itself was fantastic! Amazing and diverse landscapes, and the feeling of reaching EBC was unbelievable!!!! We were impressed with these professionals and loved all the local people we met while in the Everest region.

Thank you for making our experience unforgettable! ❤
We definitely recommend Mountain Magic to all people interested in reaching EBC and enjoying the Himalayas!

The assistants, including Kumar, were also nice and very helpful. The team gave us great comfort during challenging times (especially at higher altitudes, when we were tired and the trek was more difficult). Needless to say, the trek itself was fantastic! Amazing and diverse landscapes, and the feeling of reaching EBC was unbelievable!!!! We were impressed by these professionals and loved all the local people we met while living in the Solukhumbu area. 

Thank you for making our experience unforgettable! 
We highly recommend Mountain Magic Treks to all people who want to reach EBC and enjoy the Himalayas!

I recently fulfilled my dream of going to Everest base camp with a helicopter return trip. I was very happy to go with Mountain Magic Treks. The owner, Rewati, was able to answer many questions we had prior to our trip via email. He was very accommodating to my special schedule.

Arriving in Nepal from America, we were greeted by our guide Rajesh as we cleared immigration and collected our bags. From that moment, he was truly our "guide" before, during and after the trek. He always ensured that all our concerns and needs were addressed during the trek.

The company has also provided porters to us. It was a pleasure to make Tikaram a porter. He carried our duffel bags up and down the trek and all the stops in between. And when he's not helping carry our bags, he joins us on some of our hikes to help us during the hike.
He was also great to be around to take the perfect picture. And at night he would join us in the dining room to help serve us. He took the time to make us apple pie dessert.

I was very happy to have Rajesh and Tikaram as guides and porters. At the end of the trek, they were like my new brothers who helped me achieve my dreams.

If you plan to do Everest Base Camp, I highly recommend Mountain Magic Treks.

For those with limited time and difficulty hiking the mountain, a suitable option is trek to Everest base camp and return by helicopter. Along with three other friends, I went on this trek with Mountain Magic Trek in November. I never forget this wonderful experiance. Our trek to Everest base camp is made incredibly enjoyable by a competent guide and porter.  The pilot made us go up to the base camp and bring us down, which was an amazing experience. We return back on helicopter from Gorakshep after reaching EBC, which was very magnificent.

Mr. Revathi, the owner of Mountain Magic is very knowledgeable and responsive. Excellent hotel provided at the right location in Thamel.
When we landed at Kathmandu airport, everything was organized, someone picked us from the airport. Trekking to Everest base camp and helicopter return with Mountain Magic Treks team was fantastic.The guide and porter were very helpful. The helicopter ride back to Lukla is breathtaking view.

Thank you all
I would give Mountain Magic Treks 10 stars if I could.

A fantastic trek to EBC and Helicopter return 10 days

Words don't do it justice. The trip was fantastic - from day one to the time I boarded my return flight. It was my first trip to Nepal and I was impressed by the warm hospitality and genuine kindness of the people and the natural beauty. Trek to Everest Base camp and helicopter return flights proved to be a mind blowing experience for me! 
A big thumbs up to Mountain Magic Treks for suggesting this trip and for their excellent service!

I was on a very short vacation and wanted to visit Everest Base Camp. I collected the both experience, 7 days hike to Everest Base Camp and mountain flight on a helicopter back to Lukla. 

Highly recommend Mountain Magic Treks for trekking to Everest base camp and helicopter return

Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter return, just imagine my excitement and nervousness level. This collaboration with Mountain Magic was one hell of a roller coaster ride.

Everyone suggested taking a Helicopter flight to Lukla as the best and safest option to reach Lukla. I had limited time so I chose the EBC Trek with Helicopter return 10 days package rather than complete both way trekking. Now writing this review I can feel that I made the right decision, a both way helicopter flight was amazing. 

From Kathmandu, the helicopter took off to land in Lukla to start the trek. The scenery, landscape, and settlements seen from the window are beyond explanation. You are above the clouds, feel like you are on the top of the world looking through the creation. The helicopter lands first at Lukla near Lukla airport. Started trekking to EBC and reached it in 8 days with two acclimatized days. Rewati provided Khem as a guide and Keshap as a sherpa, both of them were good at caring for us. Because of them, we made it.

The flight was smooth and team members were friendly. They explained all the minute details about this place. The view from Kala Pattar is really hard to describe, it was a moment to live. The 360-degree view of Everest and surrounding mountains will mesmerize you. Choose EBC Trek with Helicopter return 10 days package arrival to departure service and no look further than Rewati (Mountain Magic Treks).

We took lots of photos and kept forever in our memories. It was not something that you experience in your regular life. It was much more than surreal experience and thank you Mr. Rewati and his team for making this trek exciting. The cabin crew members were professional and understanding. Mountain Magic Treks is certainly one of the best in the traveling business. Every money we spent was worthy enough after the views and hospitality of the company.

As someone who has travelled to over 200 countries and partnered with numerous international climbing and tour companies, I hold a very high bar in terms of the level of service, expertise, professionalism, and value for money I expect. Rewati, the owner of Mountain Magic Treks, and his team far exceeded my expectations. My friend and I booked the Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter return. This package provided a both way helicopter service and was the best experience ever. From the moment I made my first inquiry with Rewati, I knew I had made the right decision.

I extensively researched and reached out to numerous companies, both in the US and locally in Nepal. Unlike other companies, Rewati was extremely responsive throughout the process, patiently answering my laundry list of questions and providing expert recommendations based on my personal preferences and goals. Every aspect of the program was extremely well organized and executed flawlessly from start to finish.

Unlike other companies, which are purely “transactional” and impersonal, it’s clear that Rewati and his team deeply and genuinely care about each and every one of their clients; it was as if we were welcomed into a family. What is not apparent from the website is the fact that Mountain Magic Treks is the primary point of contact and logistics provider for mountain rescues. When you book with them, you should know that you have immediate and direct access to rescue resources, unlike other companies that would have to reach out to Mountain Magic for assistance! As you can imagine, this is something you don’t want to compromise on.

Our trekking guide, Suman, was truly exceptional and went above and beyond to make our trek a dream come true. Suman was absolutely meticulous about ensuring every small detail was taken care of from start to finish and was incredibly caring and thoughtful, continually checking in on us and constantly motivating us with his positivity and upbeat attitude. He is an incredibly experienced guide, and his passion for guiding and sharing the beauty of the mountains with others is an inspiration.

Our days were filled with laughter and smiles, and he created a uniquely warm and welcoming environment from the moment we said “good morning” and until we said “good night” every evening. Suman provided invaluable guidance on every aspect of our trek, ranging from food recommendations to dressing appropriately for the changing weather conditions. Our porters, Rabin and Shyam, were also incredible, and their strength and fortitude are nothing short of jaw-dropping. Along with Suman, they were constantly looking out for us, and we felt so cared for. It was like spending time with a wonderful group of friends.

I can’t recommend Mountain Magic Treks highly enough. I’m someone who has extremely high standards, and Rewati and his team far exceeded my expectations. Don’t waste your time booking with companies located outside of Nepal and paying triple the price of a paper-pushing middleman; go to the source of expertise on the ground. Mountain Magic Treks truly sets the benchmark others should strive for with deep expertise based on years of accumulated experience. I was so impressed with their level of customer service and expertise. I will continue to recommend them and make them my go-to guide service for any travel in the region.

"An Exceptional 10-Star Journey! Look no further, opt for Mountain Magic Treks (Rewatis Team)!

In the final week of September 2023, my partner and I embarked on the unforgettable Everest Base Camp Trek With Helicopter Return. Our experience was nothing short of fantastic, and we wholeheartedly endorse Mountain Magic Treks. Their commitment to ensuring our satisfaction was truly outstanding, marked by impeccable organization and high professionalism.

Here are just a few noteworthy instances that exemplify why we were thoroughly impressed:

In the face of adverse weather and canceled flights to Lukla, Mr. Rewati orchestrated a last-minute helicopter arrangement, allowing us to commence our trek as scheduled.
Our guide, Khem, was exceptional—possessing a wealth of knowledge, boundless attentiveness, endless patience, meticulous organization, and a sense of fun. His extensive experience ensured that we reached destinations on time to seize photo opportunities, make the most of favorable weather, stay at preferred accommodations, avoid large crowds, and tailor our itineraries to our liking. Khem's passion for the Himalayas was truly inspirational, and we cannot thank him enough for making our EBC Trek With Helicopter Return journey a remarkable one.
Our porter, Durga, was also exceptional—kind, informative, and incredibly helpful. It felt like we had been provided with two guides, a stroke of good fortune that we deeply appreciated.
The Mountain Magic Treks office in Kathmandu maintained regular phone contact with our guides, ensuring effective communication and prompt resolution of any issues that arose.
From the moment we disembarked in Kathmandu until our departure back to Sydney, everything was flawlessly organized.
The itinerary was thoughtfully tailored to suit our pace and could have easily accommodated those moving slower or faster.
Throughout the journey, we felt entirely secure. My partner particularly relished this, and the breathtaking vistas were nothing short of spectacular.
The trek maintained an intimate atmosphere, consisting of my partner, myself, Khem (our guide), and Durga (our porter), aligning perfectly with our expectations.
The trek itself unfolded amidst breathtakingly beautiful scenery, leaving an indelible mark on our hearts."

My wife always wished to fly on a helicopter to the mountain and this trip was the best one. Thanks to Rewati for his tireless effort from the very first day and to his team on the field who was amazing. Glad we talked with Rewati just before booking with another company. We were confused and that confusion leads to Mountain Magic Treks. I talked with Rewati about helicopter service for both ways and history in Nepal and what options we have for helicopter with the trek. I liked his professionalism and the price was affordable. Rewati called me on WhatsApp and we had a good talk. His detailed attention and knowledge impressed me. 
Everest Base Camp trek with Helicopter Return 10 days is the best itinerary and is comfortable enough, no look further! Book with Mountain Magic Treks (Rewatis Team)
Highly recommended trekking company in Nepal.

We are back to Toronto from our recent EBC Trek with Helicopter Return that had a helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Gorakshep to Kathmandu at the end of the trekking. I never imagined that a local company would have such an amazing team and service. The price was unbelievably good considering the service offered. In Kathmandu, we had no problem. My guide Rajes took me to shopping for the rest of our gear. He gave a little tour to the Thamel market. He was friendly with a good heart. His experience is outstanding. We are impressed with what he can do as a trekking guide. Rewati was the main person behind the operation and management. We had dinner with him on the last day in Nepal. We highly recommend Mountain Magic Treks Team

I decided to do the EBC Trek with Helicopter Return last week of September and chose Mountain Magic for this trek to guide me. There were four other people with me in my group. From the very beginning to the end everything was arranged perfectly. Tea houses we stayed, breaks for snacks and resting, the route they took us to the EBC, trekking license to be able to trek on Everest area, and many other small things were organized professionally.

Group guide Khem and two of the assistants were beneficial and nice people. Rewati the company manager was very friendly and helpful. It was an incredible experience to make it to Everest Base Camp and I am glad I chose the Mountain Magic Treks Rewatis team to guide me, we all took a helicopter flight to Lukla and also a return flight from Gorekshep so, this tour is best for those having short days to reach EBC and do not want to walk back. 
We highly recommend the Mountain Magic Treks Team!
