Have you ever imagined being so close to the highest peak of the world – Mt. Everest that you have a feeling you can almost touch it? Have you ever dreamed of watching the sunrise over the Himalayas as the first rays of the sun gently color their icy peaks? – If you are thinking yes, then join us in an unforgettable journey on a helicopter to the king of all the mountains!
As trekking for an uninterrupted long days in high elevated regions in the country is not everyone’s cup of tea or you simply don’t have enough time, the Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour is designed to fit all of your needs and give you a personal, undisturbed experience high up in the mountains.
The Everest Helicopter Tour kicks off at the Kathmandu Airport. When the helicopter takes off the landscapes beneath you will change from areal views of the many heritage sites of Kathmandu to more rural, thin settlements of the rustic Nepal. As the helicopter moves east, the snow-capped Himalayas start peeping from behind the clouds. After a short break at the airport in Lukla in order to get your private helicopter ready for the rest of the ride, the journey goes forward towards the real adventure. Even though you will already feel compelled by the beauty of the Himalayas in Lukla itself, what is waiting for you on the way to the Everest Base Camp will leave you breathless. Once the helicopter arrives in the vicinity of the Everest Base Camp, you will be able to see the highest peaks in the world right before your eyes – Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Thamserku and many more, including Khumbu glaciers. Whether your private helicopter will land in Everest Base Camp or not depends on the weather conditions.
The next stop of this great adventure will be Kalapattar where the helicopter will land so that you can fill your camera with some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. After you are satisfied with your shots, the helicopter will land once again in Syangboche Everest View Hotel where you will have breakfast just on the foothills of the highest peaks in the world and breath in some of the freshest air there is on the planet! After having your stomach filled with some fresh and delicious food and your camera filled with some of the most spectacular shots, the helicopter will bring you back to Kathmandu and leave you with memories you will never be able to forget!
