Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour landing at base camp is a unique Heli riding experience that allows you to see the world’s highest peaks in a short amount of time. This thrilling helicopter tour takes you high over the Himalayan range of mountains, past lush hills and alpine forests of rhododendron.

Mount Everest (8848 meters) is the world’s highest summit. For many people, seeing and exploring it in person is a dream come true. Even if some people are passionate about visiting Everest, they may not be able to trek the complete trekking trail. Others may be constrained by time or health concerns. This Everest Heli tour is also a fantastic alternative for them. The Everest helicopter tour provides an unprecedented aerial view of the colossal Mount Everest and surrounding peaks, as well as an adrenaline rush and an exciting adventure.

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Travel is a wonderful complement to any individual’s Nepal tour package. You can go from Kathmandu to the Everest Base Camp and back in a few hours. This is one of the best Everest Base Camp Trek alternatives, especially for people who are short on time. At first look, the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Flight (with Landing at the Base Camp) may appear to be a little pricey, but it is available as a charter or as a group joining, making it a very inexpensive pricing per person.

The trip can be done with 2pax, 3pax, or 4pax in the same flight up to a maximum of 5 people, however we recommend at least 4pax to get the most bang for your buck. If you have a group of less than four people and want to go on this trip, please send us a note using the inquiry form so that we can assist you. Anyone who has taken the EBC Heli Tour will tell you that it is well worth the money. Starting in Kathmandu, every minute is special.

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour departs from Kathmandu and takes you to Nagarkot, which is located east of the capital. As you get closer to Jiri, the verdant hills and lush valleys with the few villages give way to a closer glimpse of snowcapped peaks like as Ganesh Himal, Langtang range, Gaurishankar, and several other peaks. The first refueling stop is Lukla, where you can take a 15-minute break to enjoy the mountain air and beauty.

Lukla serves as the starting point for most treks and expeditions into the Khumbu region. The Tenzing Hillary airport in Lukla is named after the famed mountaineers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who were the first to conquer Everest. The little airport here is also noted for providing a thrilling landing experience for airplane travelers. Soon, we’ll take off from Lukla and enter the Sagarmatha National Park’s area. Once we arrive in Namche Bazaar, the Himalayan views will be considerably better than earlier. Namche is a Sherpa market town that serves as the region’s economic core. Almost every visitor travelling deeper into the Everest region passes through here, earning it the moniker “Gateway to Everest.”

At this moment, Ama Dablam will most likely be the most visible among a number of other peaks such as Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, and Kwangde. We will arrive at our main destination, the Everest Base Camp, after flying past famous Sherpa villages like Syangboche (known for superb views of the Everest range as well as the Everest View Hotel), Tengboche (home to the Tengboche monastery, the Khumbu region’s largest monastery), and Gorak Shep (region’s final settlement).

The Everest Base Camp, located 5,380 meters below the infamous Khumbu icefall, is a dream destination for many trekkers and adventurers across the world. We will have roughly 15 minutes after landing to spend in the foothills of the world’s highest peak, to fully enjoy the beauty and magnificence view around us. The base camp is surrounded by massive peaks, providing spectacular views of Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, and a variety of other peaks and glaciers.

If we are unable to land at Everest Base Camp due to unforeseen circumstances, we will attempt to land at Kala Patthar instead. This may be an even better alternative for people who want to take in the scenery. One of the best perspectives in the Everest region is Kala Patthar, which is known as a photographer’s paradise. Unlike the base camp, where Everest is obscured by the Lhotse Nuptse ridge, Kala Patthar offers a panoramic view of the region, including Everest. If the weather is good, you may see Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Khumbutse, Changtse, and Pumori, among other peaks.

The Hotel Everest View is the next station after taking off from the Everest Base Camp or Kala Patthar. The Hotel near Syangboche offers an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; a superb breakfast at about 4,000 meters while admiring the Everest, the world’s tallest peak. After a delightful 30-60 minute break here, we continue on our way back to Lukla, where we will make our final break. As we lift off from Lukla, we say our goodbyes to the Everest region and take in the final flight and aerial vistas of the Himalayas. We’ll be back in Kathmandu in just over half an hour, and the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour will be completed.

Is it possible to reach the summit of Everest via helicopter?

At a height of 8,848 meters, it is difficult to take a chopper. Actually, the tiny layer of air above Hillary’s step would prevent the helicopter from pushing enough air to complete the flight. As a result, the chopper’s ability to fly near the peak is hampered by inclement weather and a thin layer of air. However, an Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with Landing is a wonderful way to get a close look at the magnificent Mt. Everest. Above all, this helicopter journey allows you to travel to the base camp and back to Kathmandu in one day.
