Day Tour of Everest Base Camp by Helicopter is a great way to experience Everest in just one day. We begin our helicopter tour from Kathmandu and fly towards the east to Lukla which is a beautiful Sherpa village. From here we fly over the Everest Base Camp which is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world. From our helicopter, we also admire great views of the Khumbu Glacier which is ideally located between Mt. Everest and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. Next, we stop at Kalapathhar for the grandest views of the world’s highest mountain and it’s the neighboring Himalayas. Then we fly to Syangboche and spend around twenty minutes at a hotel for breakfast while also admiring the beautiful Himalayan vista. We fly back to Lukla for fueling and return to Kathmandu and end our amazing helicopter day tour of Everest. The entire Day Tour of Everest Base Camp in Helicopter gives us a unique opportunity to not just reach the base camp of Everest, the highest mountain on Earth but get the best aerial views of Everest and the neighboring Himalayas on an exclusive helicopter flight.
Everest Heli Tour is a specially designed package in which travelers can get a lifelong memorable event of leaving their footprints on the foothill of the world’s tallest mountain Mt. Everest (8848 m) or gaze at the panoramic mountainous range from the top of Kalapathar (5545 m) with ease. Our travel planners designed such package with vibrancy and meticulous thinking. While ascending to such high altitude the risk of getting caught in altitude sickness is very high. The speed of traveling and change in the altitude might have negative effects on the human body. Our travel planners knitted the itinerary in such a way that travelers will be safe from such mishaps. The chance to have either breakfast or lunch at the world's highest situated hotel the Everest View Hotel is another milestone of this helicopter tour in Nepal. The journey starts with the scenic chopper ride through hills, terraced farmlands, and forests of lower Solu. After refueling in the world’s most extreme Lukla Airport, travelers head to either Kalapathar or Everest Base Camp (5364 m). Travelers will be blessed by the sight of Mt. Cholatse, Amadablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Everest, Kwangde, Kusum Kangaru, Lobuche, Island, Tabuche, and many more.
Spending only around five minutes in Kalapathhar will prevent us from getting altitude sickness. Our helicopter will be on stand-by at Kalapathhar therefore it is technically impossible to spend more than the allocated time.
