Everest Helicopter tour is the easiest way to see Everest in a day.

Nepal has 8 of the 10 world’s highest peak in the world. The Himalayan region of Nepal holds 1,310 peaks that are over 6000 meters. Various gorges, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes, flora, fauna and exotic animals add in the beauty of the Himalayan region of Nepal.

However, the roads there are not that easy. Some have named the roads there as “Scary roads” or even, “Deadliest roads” in the world. Along with the difficult routes, the altitude also makes the travel toilsome. If you are not strong physically or mentally, then long-distance high altitude walk might not be a good idea for you.

So, is there no alternative?

Of course, there is! There is a helicopter tour to the Everest! The Everest Base Camp Trek takes 12 days to complete, but with a helicopter, you can do it in a matter of just 4 hours!

Whether you are young or old, this ride is safe enough for you. You will be in good hands of the trained and experienced staffs. We understand that compared to Mount Everest Flight, the Helicopter Tour is expensive. Not anymore! Catering to your needs, we also have a group joining the program. Thanks to that, the Everest helicopter tour is now affordable.

Private Everest Base Camp Helicopter Landing Tour

With the powerful B3e series helicopter, we can take up to 5 of you to Everest Base Camp, depending on your weight. We need to maintain the weight inside the helicopter. Your weight determines how many people we need to keep inside for that shuttle. So, we request you to provide us with your weight.

Everest Helicopter tour with Landing

You will land on a helicopter at the highest point of the Everest Base Camp trek, Kala Patthar (5545m). It is the best and closest point for you to view Mt. Everest. After landing, you will get 10 minutes there to take pictures or videos.

Only 10 minutes?

Yes, let us tell you why. When the people challenge the trek, it takes days to reach to the higher altitude. They slowly adapt to the higher altitude. Some people even fail to adjust and have to descend due to altitude sickness.

But in your case, you ascend to high altitude in just minutes! So, your body will not be accustomed to the altitude. That is why we give you 10 minutes during landing at Kala Patthar. If you stay any further, it increases the risk of altitude sickness.

Plus, 10 minutes is enough time for you to click your photos; both in your memories and in your device. After that spectacular view, you might be feeling hungry. You will get to replenish your energy with delicious food. You can have a choice to land between the two for breakfast: Kongde View Resort or Hotel Everest View.

You will get 30 minutes to devour your champagne breakfast.
