Overview

Do you dream of seeing Everest, but not quite fancy spending a few weeks hiking there? Well, don’t worry – we have the solution for you. We can take you on Everest Helicopter Tour in just 1 day – that’s also within 4 to 5 hours and all in the comfort and thrill of a helicopter!

Starting your exciting luxury journey in Kathmandu, where you will be treated to an aerial view of the bustling city and its famed UNESCO World Heritage Sites, before heading towards the ‘Gateway to Everest’ (Lukla). Criss Cross over snowy mountain peaks, lush green landscapes, local settlements, and majestic monasteries, as you fly alongside the Himalayan range on your way towards Kala Patthar (5550 m), the most popular viewpoint in Everest Region. Step off the helicopter and enjoy up-close views of Pumori, Nuptse, Lobuche, and of course, Mount Everest.

Climb back into your luxury helicopter Tour and fly over trekkers cutting their way through mountainsides on their way to Everest Base Camp and its 8000-meter peaks. Enjoy the view as you hover above and observe the landscape peppered with multi-colored tents, and marvel at the frozen panorama of the Khumbu Glacier and Icefall.    

Then take your second stop at Shyangboche, and enjoy a breathtaking breakfast surrounded by Himalayan peaks, before one final swoop over the Goyoko lakes. The perfect way to explore one of the world’s most beautiful sights, all from the comfort of a helicopter!

This is therefore ideal for anyone not able to trek, or with limited time, or maybe just not keen on the idea of trekking itself. However, if this doesn’t sound like you, but you still fancy the thrill of the helicopter, then why not combine the helicopter ride with one of our many trekking packages? You can still experience the sights on foot, but you can cut down on your journey, and enjoy the adventure of the Tour.

Your Itinerary

Transfer to Tribhuvan International Airport: Everest Helicopter Tour: You will be collected from your hotel in the morning and driven to the airport. From here you will board your helicopter to Lulka – and the excitement will begin! Flying early in the morning, the skies should be clear as we fly east, enjoying panoramic views of Kathmandu before heading towards the mountains. We will then fly above Himalayan peaks on our thrilling ride, before reaching Lukla, a mountaintop Sherpa settlement known as the ‘Gateway to Everest’. We will land at Tenzing-Hillary Airport to refuel and explore, before setting back off toward the mountains.

Fly from Lukla to Everest Base Camp; Stopover at Kala Patthar (5550m/19,290ft)Enjoy breathtaking views of glacial rivers, Sherpa settlements, and majestic monasteries as we get back on board and fly over the emerald Gokyo Lakes – their sparkling turquoise waters contrasting with the icy white frozen glaciers.

As we reach Everest Base Camp, your helicopter will hover over the expedition groups as they attempt to scale Mount Everest. If it’s the climbing season, the snow-covered landscape will be filled with colorful tents, creating a beautiful patchwork for you to observe from above. Surrounding the trekkers you can view the broad glacial basin of Western Cwm, Khumbu Icefall, and Khumbu Glacier.

The helicopter will then touch base in Kala Patthar. At a height of 5545m, you are almost at the foot of Mount Everest and can take in the atmosphere as you are surrounded by one of the most incredible views on earth. A chain of some of the highest peaks in the World rises up around you as you soak in the views and take pictures. Due to the height, the air here is thin and oxygen levels are low. So, to ensure that you are not affected by the altitude, we will only stop here for 10 to 15 minutes, before flying onto Shyangboche.

Breakfast at Shyangboche (30-40 minutes) and fly back to Kathmandu Our next stop is in Shyangboche, where we will step off the helicopter for 20 – 40 minutes and enjoy one of the most magical breakfasts of your life. Flanked by the frozen walls of Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Khumbu Himal, you can celebrate the completion of this wonderful tour.
