I took a couple of hour for Chopper trip to Everest coz itz my dream to catch The Top of the World very closely. Morning time’ weather wasn’t cleared but about 11 AM, it’s wonderful. Shining sun and I went Everest Tengboche’ then EBC. The Everest Panorama was just marvelous. Pilot Dinesh was describing me about the mountain ranges and elevation. ~John Rad (USA)
