Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour


Day 01 - Helicopter flight to Everest and surrounding

Early morning drive to airport and board a helicopter to Everest. Flight time is usually at 7am and you need to be at the airport 1 hour prior to the flight time. After check-in, we fly to Lukla which will take 45 mins. After refuelling at Lukla Airport, we take off for a scenic mountain flight and our real experience will begin. Witness the spectacular closeup view of world’s highest mountain right as we fly near Everest and land at Kalapathar for quick photo. Maximum 5 minutes of landing time will be given at Kalapathar due to the threat of altitude as we gain the altitude rapidly from Kathmandu (1,350m/4,415ft) to Kalapathar (5,545m/18,132ft). From Kalapathar we fly back to Kathmandu via Lukla. Everest Helicopter Tour is the best Ariel tour you can possibly do and it surely will be a lifetime experience.
