About Trip:

With it magnificent mountain scenery and lush deep hidden valleys, Nepal is beautiful from every angle. Adventurers have been climbing, trekking and discovering Nepal’s secrets for over forty years, now it is possible to discover perhaps its last, from the air.

Helicopter flights offer a unique birds- eye view of the world’s tallest mountains and deepest valleys as they take you deep into the spine of these ice clad monsters. It is the ideal solution if you are short on time or perhaps you just fancy the thrill. We use a modern fleet of helicopters that are proven and particularly well suited for mountainous terrain and passenger comfort.

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour is the ultimate flying experience arguably of anywhere in the world. The tour begins from Kathmandu flying east to Lukla, the iconic Sherpa gateway to the Everest Region. After a short stop for refueling, get ready for something very special, soaring up for a hawk like view towards Mount Everest and many other greats peaks. Gaze down on weathered gorges and the charming Sherpa villages, where Buddhist monasteries are perched precariously on narrow ridges. Cameras here work overtime above the lush forested foothills of the beautiful Dudh Kosi Valley as you are effortlessly carried up into the harsh glacier moraine and above the Khumbu Glacier. Spend a short time at Everest Base Camp or Kala Patthar, (time is limited to around eight minutes due to the high altitude). Still enough time to witness a surreal experience of the 360-degree dramatic panoramic view of Mt. Everest (8848 m) and the surrounding mountains, including Mt. Nuptse (7861m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6812m) Mt. Thamserku (6623m). On the way back take breakfast and a coffee (20 minutes) at Syangboche (Hotel Everest view). The name says it all, with more excellent views of Mt.Everest and its ranges. From here you swoop back down to Lukla for refueling, before the flight back to Kathmandu. If you are a Solo Traveler, or looking to join a group of travelers.
