Everest Heli Trek Overviews 

Everest Heli Trek is a new flavor of trekking in Nepal merging classical 12-day Everest Heli Trek with a Helicopter flight from EBC. As time passes, the interests and preferences of tourists also change. To meet the preferences of tourists across the globe, we, Team Himalaya have designed a special package of a trek to Everest Base Camp blending the experience of Heli flight around the mountain panorama in the Everest Region. Everest Heli Trek, like other classical Everest Base Camp trek, takes us into the lap of the top of the world, Mt. Everest. This will be an exhilarating experience for the trekkers for a lifetime. The incredible mountain giants including Cho Oyu (8,201m), Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Everest (8,848m), holy Pumori, and other alluring snow-fed peaks in the skyline. This trek is not only popular for mountain views but also for experiencing various species of alpine flora and fauna in Sagarmatha National Park.

We will also gain familiarity with hospitable Sherpa people. EBC Trek with Return Helicopter commences after we have a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek then ascends to Namche via Phakding and Monjo. Namche is a popular tourist hub and the gateway to Everest region trekking. Namche Bazar is popular for the Tibetan market, mountain views like Thamserku and other peaks, and also popular for Hotel Everest View from where one can witness the entire Everest panorama. The trek then takes you to Tengboche from where we can experience the entire Sagarmatha National Park. Sagarmatha National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site which is a shelter to alpine flora and fauna including fir, pine, rhododendron, oak, and wildlife like musk deer, Derow, Ghoral, and Himalayan Thar as well as red-billed chough, Impheyan pheasant, blood pheasant, and yellow-billed chough. Everest Heli Trek finally takes us to Kalapatthar and Everest Base Camp which are both popular vantage points in the Everest region for breathtaking mountain views. A climb to Kalapatthar offers us the most stunning view of the Everest massif. Then we head to Everest Base Camp for more splendid views of mountain peaks.

Now, we fly by Heli around the mountain panorama in the Everest region once again from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu. In this trekking, we benefit in two ways: one is the trekkers can have an experience of adventure trekking to Everest Base Camp and the other is the experience of flying above the top of the world, Mt. Everest.

An Enjoying the great trip to Everest Base Camp Heli Trek

What an adventure hard to express enjoying the great trip to Everest Base Camp Heli Trek. As well from Everest base camp with a return flight on a helicopter to Kathmandu. The good time spent around Everest passed so quickly, hope to come back again for the next wonderful adventure and join with Nepal Holidays again. I was in doubt about whether to join or just take an Everest Base Camp Trek with a return on Heli Flight. Team Himalaya offered this grand opportunity adventure of fewer than two weeks with the opportunity to fly back after the Everest base camp trek. Oh, what a great memorable time I experienced, loved every moment of the trek.

Everest Heli Trek Overviews 

Everest Heli Trek is a new flavor of trekking in Nepal merging classical 12-day Everest Heli Trek with a Helicopter flight from EBC. As time passes, the interests and preferences of tourists also change. To meet the preferences of tourists across the globe, we, Team Himalaya have designed a special package of a trek to Everest Base Camp blending the experience of Heli flight around the mountain panorama in the Everest Region. Everest Heli Trek, like other classical Everest Base Camp trek, takes us into the lap of the top of the world, Mt. Everest. This will be an exhilarating experience for the trekkers for a lifetime. The incredible mountain giants including Cho Oyu (8,201m), Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Everest (8,848m), holy Pumori, and other alluring snow-fed peaks in the skyline. This trek is not only popular for mountain views but also for experiencing various species of alpine flora and fauna in Sagarmatha National Park.

We will also gain familiarity with hospitable Sherpa people. EBC Trek with Return Helicopter commences after we have a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek then ascends to Namche via Phakding and Monjo. Namche is a popular tourist hub and the gateway to Everest region trekking. Namche Bazar is popular for the Tibetan market, mountain views like Thamserku and other peaks, and also popular for Hotel Everest View from where one can witness the entire Everest panorama. The trek then takes you to Tengboche from where we can experience the entire Sagarmatha National Park. Sagarmatha National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site which is a shelter to alpine flora and fauna including fir, pine, rhododendron, oak, and wildlife like musk deer, Derow, Ghoral, and Himalayan Thar as well as red-billed chough, Impheyan pheasant, blood pheasant, and yellow-billed chough. Everest Heli Trek finally takes us to Kalapatthar and Everest Base Camp which are both popular vantage points in the Everest region for breathtaking mountain views. A climb to Kalapatthar offers us the most stunning view of the Everest massif. Then we head to Everest Base Camp for more splendid views of mountain peaks.

Now, we fly by Heli around the mountain panorama in the Everest region once again from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu. In this trekking, we benefit in two ways: one is the trekkers can have an experience of adventure trekking to Everest Base Camp and the other is the experience of flying above the top of the world, Mt. Everest.

Trip Reviews (4)

The experience of Everest Base Camp with Team Himalaya was amazing, very well organized, and tough but enjoyable. All the staff were so helpful. I would like to say a big thank you to Raj and his team for doing a great job. Our guides were more than amazing and really made the trip for us helping us every step of the way and guiding us through the paths. It was an adventure of a lifetime. Would definitely recommend this trek and company and team!

What an adventure hard to express enjoying the great trip to Everest Base Camp Heli Trek. As well from Everest base camp with a return flight on a helicopter to Kathmandu. The good time spent around Everest passed so quickly, hope to come back again for the next wonderful adventure and join with Nepal Holidays again. I was in doubt about whether to join or just take an Everest Base Camp Trek with a return on Heli Flight. Team Himalaya offered this grand opportunity adventure of fewer than two weeks with the opportunity to fly back after the Everest base camp trek. Oh, what a great memorable time I experienced, loved every moment of the trek.

What a great way to enjoy the marvelous adventure to Everest base camp and Return on a scenic chopper flight. It was truly a memorable adventure, enjoyed the walk to Everest Base Camp and the tough climb to Kalapathar hill. The food and lodge accommodation was excellent, and far beyond our expectations. The guide was an expert and knew how to serve its clients keeping us safe with interesting information on the areas of trekking.

From the start of trekking from Lukla, it was pleasant and enjoyable all the way to Everest base camp. We never faced any dull or boring moments, always Excitement on daily walks to Gorakshep and Everest base camp. The return flight on a small helicopter was an amazing experience, thanks to Team

Himalaya for the wonderful trip we enjoyed.
