Overview

Countless trekkers flock to the Everest base camp each year to see the once-in-a-lifetime Himalayan scenery. To have this ultimate look of these grand mountains, many people reach here either by trekking or flying. If we have to talk about these options, both have different kinds of experiences. You can get a majestic view of the mountains by flying directly to the Everest base camp. However, if you only choose this option, you'll miss one of traveling's most essential features: adventure. Meanwhile, going with the trekking option will encourage adventure but you would be sacrificing comfort. So, we think that combining these two features into one would make a perfect Everest base camp helicopter trek journey.

Trekking is generally a challenging way to complete a long journey. However, most people choose this way to fulfill their adventurous souls. But, some people want to do this activity in comfort. So, this is a journey that should not be missed by individuals who want to fully explore the historic pathways and heritages while also enjoying the convenience of a helicopter ride back to Everest base camp. We highly recommend this trek for those who have very limited time for Exploration but want to experience a lot in the Khumbu region.

The trekking course initially follows the same route as any other Everest base camp trek since it is a half-heli tour and a half-trail trekking trip. The trail will start from the Lukla and then finally reach Namche and hike up to the heli pickup point to Syangboche. While following this trail, you'll get to relish spectacular views of the peaks as well as the Sherpa people's rich cultural traditions.

Finally, after days of trekking along the trail, you will reach Syangboche. On the next day after having a delightful Breakfast at the Everest View Hotel, you will head on to the Kalapatthar. Here at the ultimate destination, you will take in the jaw-dropping vistas of Gorakshep, the Khumbu Glacier, the Khumbu Icefall, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse, Pumori, and the mighty Mount Everest. Once you've had a chance to take it all in, you'll then eventually make your way back to Kathmandu in a helicopter bidding farewell to Khumbu.
