Everest Base Camp Tour by Helicopter – Travel introduction

A one-day trip to Everest Base Camp is a great way to experience Mount Everest in one day. We start our helicopter tour from Kathmandu and fly east to Lukla, a beautiful village of Sherpa. From here we fly over the base camp of Mount Everest, one of the most popular hiking destinations in the world. From our helicopters, we also appreciate the superb view of the Khumbu Glacier, which is ideally located between the mountains, Mount Everest and Lhotse-Nuptse. Next, we will stop at Kalapathhar and enjoy the best views of the world’s highest peaks and the neighboring Himalayas. Then we fly to Syangboche and spend about 20 minutes at the hotel while enjoying the beauty of the Himalayas. We returned to Lukla and returned to Kathmandu to complete the incredible trip to Everest Helicopter. The Everest Base Camp All-Day Helicopter Tour offers us a unique opportunity to reach not only the world’s highest mountain, the Everest Base Camp, but also the best aerial view of Mount Everest and the nearby Himalayas.

Best Time to Travel

The best time to take this trip is from September to April.
