Everest Base Camp is situated at 5,364m above sea level on the Nepal side. Fly to Everest Base Camp on a helicopter tour with SHANGRI-LA VOYAGES. Live your dream. Everest Heli Tour is the best option for travelers who do not have enough vacation in Nepal and find it difficult to get two weeks time to hike up and down the mountains for 6-7 hours every day. Everest Heli Tour is a day trip by helicopter flying four hours from Kathmandu, offering you fantastic views of the mountain.
As the flight goes to the east side, the snowy peaks start to appear in front of your eyes and the helicopter lands at Lukla airport for refueling. At this time, you can see beautiful Lukla villages. After refueling in Lukla, the flight continues to fly towards Everest Base Camp. Passing through Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep and then landing at Everest Base Camp, you may not believe that your eyes are witnessing the world’s highest peak in front of you. Similarly, from the base camp, you can see peaks like Pumori, Lhotse, Nuptse, Amadablam, Thamserku and many more peaks along with Khumbu Glacier.
You will have 5 minutes to land at Everest Base Camp with Kalapatthar due to the altitude threat. Kalapatthar means black rock peak. It is the perfect vantage point to enjoy the 360-degree views of Mount Everest. We can take some beautiful photos as a memory of a great Everest trip. From Kalapatthar, the helicopter will take you back to Syangboche. You can enjoy breakfast, tea or coffee at the Everest View Hotel while looking at a stunning view of Mount Everest. Afterwards, fly back to Kathmandu landing in Lukla to refuel.
