What to Expect

Everest Base Camp Heli trek is a short duration package which flawlessly blends the awesome trekking experience as well as the luxurious helicopter ride from Gorakshep. Reaching to the base of the highest peak on the earth Mt Everest (8848m) is undoubtedly every trekkers dream. Nevertheless, many trek enthusiasts don’t get the chance to experience The Everest Base Camp Trek due to time restraint. However, the Everest Base Camp is an awesome alternative for people to experience the majestic beauty of the Mount Everest. They can always opt for this short EBC Heli Trek which is of 11 days.

Initially, we will fly to Lukla experiencing breathtaking flight at the most dramatic airport of the world. Later, we gradually make our way to Namche Bazaar through the trek to Phakding where we pass through a fascinating setting as we climb along with the Himalayan pine and cedar trees until we reach the centre of Everest Region i.e. Namche Bazaar. Then, we will hike to the Everest View Hotel to observe incredible panorama of the Everest, Tawache, Lhotse, Amadablam, etc. A visit to Tengboche Monastery (3860m) which rewards us with the arresting views of Mt Amadablam, Mt. Everest and its adjacent peaks is the major highlight of the trek.

Before reaching the base camp we will step into Dingboche from where we will witness the spectacular views of numerous peaks like Amadablam, Lhotse and many more. We hike from Dingboche towards Nagerjun in order to witness the fine views of Lobuche East (6119m), Thamserku (6608m), Kangtega (6685m) etc. Likewise, we will take a walk to Lobuche filled with luscious meadows until we get to Gorekshep. From Gorekshep, we make our way towards to the Everest Base Camp incredible and memorable views. We hike along the way to base camp in order to perceive magnificent and astounding views of the legendary Himalayan range, the Mount Everest itself. Finally, we take a helicopter tour of the base camp and fly back to Kathmandu in a comfy yet awesome helicopter ride.
