A helicopter Tour in Everest Kala Patthar can be an outstanding experience for anyone. Once you fly over the mountainous region, you may not want to come back. It is just like immersing in a paradise area. You get outstanding views in front of you with snow-capped peaks and glacial ranges.

Kala Patthar is a rocky mountain nearby the Everest Base Camp. It is the perfect viewpoint of the Everest region. As a result, most of the trekkers attempt to hike to Kala Patthar for looking at the golden sunrise and sunset over the gorgeous Himalayas during their trekking to Everest Base Camp. It offers very closer views of Mt. Everest with its ranges and the other mountains such as Lhotse, Nuptse and so on. The sceneries are very remarkable.

The Helicopter ride to see Everest always begins in the early morning after observing the weather condition. It starts at Tribhuwan Domestic Airport at Lukla Airport. At first, you fly to the Nagarkot area, then to the Everest region from the Jiri to Lukla. These both places Jiri and the Lukla are the gateways to the Everest Base Camp Trekking. You have a short stop at Lukla for fueling purposes. You can have the first glimpse of Sherpa inhabitants over there. Then the flight heads towards the Everest Base Camp over many Sherpa villages like Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, and others. You get the stunning experience over the World’s Highest Mountain.

Finally, your Everest Helicopter ride stops directly after reaching the Kala Patthar where you can enjoy the live views of the Everest ranges and the other snow-capped peaks as well as the glaciers very closely. You can also capture snapshots of these picturesque views. After spending some time, you have a ride back to Kathmandu by retracing the previous airways.
