 Everest base camp Helicopter Tour was Dream about the world's thrilling helicopter ride to the world’s tallest mountain along with a breathtaking landing experience at Kala Patthar(5550 m via Base camp etc). The Everest Base Camp helicopter tour is one of the best tours that fly you to the base of the world's highest mountain, Mt Everest, from Kathmandu on a private helicopter flight ( flight sharing is also available ). You will be flying beyond 8000 m enjoying the breathtaking view of the beautiful mystic Everest region with magnificent high Himalayas, local Sherpa settlements, varied landscapes, etc. Everest Base Camp helicopter tour has become the dream tour of many travelers these days as they can be at the base of mighty Mount Everest within a short period without the need to trek for weeks. Travelers will experience wonderful adventures during this trip. Not all travelers have the time and physical strength or ability to trek in this region. So, for time-bound travelers and those who are challenged physically with a long trek, Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with landing at Kalapatthar is by far the most favorable option.

the Everest base camp  Helicopter Tour with landing at  Kalapatthar offers some remarkable cinematic views of the snow-capped Himalayan mountain range. Likewise, travelers who are differently abled and even the elderly can enjoy 4-5 hours of a helicopter ride to the Everest Base Camp in Nepal.

On our flight back to Kathmandu, we will stop at Hotel Everest View at Syangboche, the highest-altitude hotel in the world for breakfast. 

The limit load a helicopter can carry at a time is 220 kg from Pheriche to Kalapatthar due to the high altitude. If the limit exceeds we will have to double shuttle. Also, note that 4-5 people cannot board simultaneously. In this case, a single charter only carries 420 kg right from Kathmandu valley itself up to Pheriche.

Places of interest in Everest Base Camp helicopter?

Kala Patthar:

Kalapatthar, located on the south elevation of Pumori, is situated at an altitude of 5644 m above sea level. This hill point is very famous for panoramic close-up views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Everest, Changtse, and surrounding peaks. Kalapatthar has established itself as an alternative to Everest Base Camp for many travelers since the viewpoint provides a glimpse of Everest peak which cannot be seen from Everest Base Camp.

Hotel Everest View at Syangboche:

Hotel Everest View is awarded as Guinness Book of World Records in 2004 for the highest situated hotel. It is situated at an altitude of 13,000 ft above sea level. Situated on the lap of the Khumbu region, Syangboche is a beautiful resting place. The varied and vivid landscapes serve you an extremely relaxing environment. The EBC Helicopter Tour with landing in Nepal is the way to go if you are driven by nature, want to experience the massive Himalayas from up close, or, well, have a delightful breakfast at the highest placed hotel in the world.

Khumbu Glacier:

Khumbu Glacier is the world’s highest glacier with elevations of 4,900 m at its end to 7,600 m at its source. Located in between Mount Everest and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, Khumbu Glacier is also the largest glacier in Nepal. Trekkers encounter it on the final trail to the base camp. The glacier has a huge icefall which is called the Khumbu Icefall. Furthermore, it is one of the riskiest challenges for those who are on their way to the Everest summit. From above, however, the giant glacier looks stunning, along with a breathtaking aerial view of the Himalayan range around it. Therefore, the EBC Helicopter tour is practical to observe the icefall without getting too risky along the way.
