Everest Base Camp Heli Trek Itinerary
Our Everest base camp helicopter trek begins with a spectacular flight to Lukla from where we will walk past the dense forest of pine and rhododendrons in Sagarmatha National Park and pass through small ethnic villages to the Sherpa Land of Namche Bazaar. We have scheduled 2 nights at Namche bazar and 2 nights at Dingboche for acclimatization purpose. On these days, we climb high and sleep low allowing our body to adapt with the increasing altitude. We will follow the classic Everest Base Camp trekking route to the Base Camp via Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorekshep and then move further to Kalapathar for the unobstructed view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and surrounding mountains. From Gorekshep, we will retrace to Pheriche for overnight and board a chartered helicopter to Kathmandu next morning instead of walking all the way to Lukla to catch a flight back. The helicopter flight also allows us to witness the Himalayas from a closer view and high above the grounds. We offer Charter flight from Everest to Kathmandu for individuals, families, friends and corporate. We also have another trip which combines Everest and Gokyo Region with a helicopter flight back to Kathmandu, have a look at our Everest Base Camp Gokyo Lakes Heli Trek
What makes Everest Base Camp Heli Trek different?
- Instead of walking all the way down to Lukla to catch a flight back to Kathmandu, we will return to Pheriche from where we will board a helicopter flight back to Kathmandu.
- All-inclusive Everest base camp trek and Kalapathar with proper acclimatization in just 2 weeks
- Get the best alternative to the normal Everest Base Camp Trek. Being short trek in Everest, this package is for those who have a very limited time for exploration.
- Since you will be flying to Kathmandu from Pheriche of Everest via helicopter, you can avoid the same returning trail back to Lukla

I am a frequent traveller and have been to Nepal on three different occasions. Each time with different operator (Foreign and Local Company) but recently i travelled with Highland Expeditions after knowing them from my colleague and they are above all the companies i have travelled with before.
After doing short and lower elevation treks previously during my trip to Nepal, this time i decided to do Everest Base Camp Trek combined with helicopter flight back to Kathmandu and i had a trip of a lifetime with them. From communication prior to arriving until the departure, everything worked perfectly. Passang welcomed me at the airport and after reaching KGH, he gave us trip briefing and covered all the important aspects of trek which was really helpful. Their guides were amazing and we couldn’t have made it without them. Hotel in Kathmandu, Tea Houses/Lodges, Guides and logistical arrangements were all top notch.
After three consecutive trips to Nepal, I finally found a company that i can rely on.
Excellent service from start to finish.
We went for 12 days EBC tour with helicopter flight back to Kathmandu with Highland Expeditions and they met all our requirements and preferences.
Passang was very prompt to our email from the beginning and provided us very detailed information on trek, which helped us in planning for the trek from before and after meeting him and the fantastic crew of Highland Expeditions, we were well looked after and they were very professional in their work.
I would recommend Highland Expeditions to anyone considering a trek in Nepal.
