Helicopter Tour – Mount Everest Base Camp/1 Day Tour

The Helicopter Tour of Everest Base Camp 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 tour, 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 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 Base Camp.

    "My husband and I have just returned from Nepal after touring Lumbhini and Kathmandu and trekking in Sagarmatha National Park. A helicopter ride over the Himalayan ranges gave us an indescribable view of THE Mountain - Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest). All our travel plans in Nepal were handled by Expedition Himalaya and they did an outstanding job of making our trip an unforgettable one. Neema Sherpa was our guide at the beginning of our trip and was our friend and still is, at the end of our trip. Neema made sure we were safe at all times and our welfare (not his) was his prime concern - truly a loyal friend. Neema also made sure we knew the next day's itinerary, the condition of the tracks, the altitude and approximate trekking time. Every morning he asked us how we felt and was ever watchful for signs of altitude sickness. Nabin Trital the Manager was in frequent contact with Neema making sure we had acclimatised and everything was running smoothly and safely. Nabin was also very flexible in that, if we decided to ditch road travel for air travel he would get our tickets within minutes and we would be flying either the same day or the next. Nabin also changed the itinerary to suit our flight times. Would we travel with Expedition Himalaya again - you bet we would, on the proviso that Neema and Nabin are at the helm! Thank you Expedition Himalaya in particular Neema and Nabin for a tour to remember."
