Have you ever dreamed of flying to Everest Base Camp by helicopter? Make your dream come true with this trip from Kathmandu. Don't miss out!
Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour
We'll start by picking you up from your hotel first thing in the morning, and we will then head to the airbase. Here we'll climb on board a helicopter which will take us up close to one of the world's highest summits.
After making a quick stop to refuel at Lukla airport, we'll fly over the Khumbu Valley, the most well-known part of the Himalayas, and from here we'll be able to spot the famous Mount Everest, as well as Mount Pumori, Mount Nuptse and Mount Lhotse. Following 25 minutes of incredible views, we'll arrive at Everest Base Camp, our much-awaited stop.
We'll land close to Everest Base Camp, specifically at Kala Patthar, over 18,000 feet (5,545 metres) above sea level. Heaven for all photography lovers! You'll have 15 minutes here to admire the rugged mountains and revel in the breathtaking beauty of the nature surrounding you. If you're lucky, you might even spot some yaks, the most emblematic animal of Nepal.
We'll board the helicopter once again and set out towards the Everest View Hotel. We'll drop down to give ourselves a 360-degree view of the impressive peaks of the UNESCO listed Sagarmatha National Park. In this picture-perfect setting, you'll have 45 minutes to enjoy breakfast (not included) or make the most of the natural landscape.
We'll finally take the helicopter back to the airbase, and from there we'll return to your hotel in Katmandu.
