      When things don't work out...

      We visited Kathmandu early Sept 2016. The highlight of the trip was suppose to be a helicopter tour of the Himalayas. The weather had other plans. Every morning of our trip we met up with Suman, the managing director of Dream Heaven. Suman dedicated A LOT of his own time, everyday, for five days. The weather never cooperated. Suman was professional and handled everything with ease. Exchanging this amount of money outside of the US (for someone who had never done this before) can be a little scary. There is no reason to fear or doubt the integrity of Dream Heaven Adventure or Suman Aryal. Dream Heaven cannot control the weather. Book with Dream Heaven. You'll be extremely satisfied.

      Exactly what we needed!

      We booked a helicopter tour through Suman. He had excellent communication with our group all the way until we left Kathmandu. He gave us advice before coming and helped with the arrival at the airport too. The weather wasn't cooperating during our visit but Suman kept our group up to date every morning and even had alternative options for us in case it did not clear up. He and his team were very professional and did everything they could. I recommend his help to any and all.

      Amazing EBC Helicopter Tour

      Just finished 5 hours helicopter tour of EBC. We planned this tour as we didn't have enough time for trek. It was once in life time experience for us. We heard that there was no flight just one day before our trip because of bad weather; luckily it was extremely nice weather. Suman and his team organized very well. The cost was reasonable. Views from Kala Pathar were amazing; must do this trip if you love to see Mount Everest!!
