Trek to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest! Then, visit Kalapthhar and go on a helicopter tour of Gokyo Lake on your discovery of the Everest region before heading back to Kathmandu.

This 12-day trip begins in Kathmandu, from where you will take a mountain flight to Lukla and begin trekking. Trek through rhododendron forests, along river banks, and on stony trails. Experience the remote mountain culture of the local people as you pass through villages and monasteries. Soak up the stunning views of the Himalayan giants. After the trek, we ride back to Lukla by helicopter from Gorakshep. One of the most exciting parts of this Everest trip is the helicopter tour over the pristine Gokyo Lake, which is also a popular trekking destination among trekkers who travel the Everest region.

“What a wonderful experience. I knew I was not going to get to the Himalayas on our trip to Nepal this time and I was not interested in doing the kind of trek it would take to get an amazing view of the mountains so this was perfect for me. I loved the added touch of the champagne as we passed Mount Everest.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
