Everest Base Camp Trek and fly back by Helicopter

Trip Highlights

  • Sightseeing in UNESCO World Heritage sites in Kathmandu
  • Short and scenic flight over the mountain to Lukla
  • Walking along the Sagarmatha National Park
  • Hiking to EBC and Kalapatthar
  • Gorgeous views of Mt. Everest, Ama dablam and others
  • Helicopter ride over the Himalayas

This is a great package that offers two different experiences such as trekking to Everest base camp and flies back by helicopter over the gorgeous Himalayas.

The Everest base camp trek helicopter return starts only after your arrival in Kathmandu. After having a short and scenic flight to Lukla, the EBC trek starts. It ends at Phakding on the first day. On the next day, the trail goes to Namche Bazaar. It is the beautiful Sherpa highland. You can spend the two nights over there as an acclimatization day for one day. The gorgeous Everest ranges come nearer to the nearest from the trekking beginning to the ending places respectively. Walking along the Sagarmatha National Park is inexplicable. The park includes different kinds of beautiful flora and fauna. The national flower of Nepal i.e. rhododendron can also be seen in almost all ways.

The continuation of your trips to Mt. Everest base camp takes you to Gorakshep. From there, you can have a hike to the base camp of Mt. Everest and Kalapatthar. The former does not offer the mountain views very perfectly whereas the latter shows the closest views of Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and other snowcapped peaks vividly.

Gorakshep is the Everest base camp helicopter trek ending point. From there, you can come back by our chartered helicopter. While returning, you can find yourself on top of the mountain and see the remarkable Himalayas of the Khumbu region. The helicopter directly stops at Lukla. Finally, the Everest base camp trek with helicopter return ends in Kathmandu airport on the next day.

Rising Adventure also customizes the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour as well as the Budget EBC Trek. We have been organizing the Everest base camp trek and helicopter return package for a long time. For more details, you can contact us at any time.
