Many people spend days trekking to Everest Base Camp and back. However, there is a quick and convenient way to reach there without having to break a sweat. This trip is the perfect option for those who want to travel to the base camp but do not have enough time or are not in the best of their health for all the physical toil that it requires.
We will pick you up at your hotel in Kathmandu and drive you to the airport. Hop on the chopper and start your journey to the mountains. If the sky is clear, you will see numerous peaks in the Himalayas glistening in the sun from the seat of your chopper. We will ensure that you get the window seat inside if two or more travelers book this trip together (the maximum is six people).
Land in Lukla for refreshments and get your first glimpse of Everest. Then fly over the Khumbu Valley while enjoying beautiful views of the Himalayas. The chopper lands for a while either in Everest Base Camp or Kala Patthar, thereby allowing you to experience panoramic views of some of the world's tallest mountains, including Mount Lhotse (8,516 m), Mount Nuptse (7,861 m), Mount Makalu (8,481 m), Mount Shishapangma (8,013 m) and Mount Cho Oyu (8,201 m), up close.
Also see the stunning Khumbu Icefall and numerous Himalayan glaciers. On your way back, you will land in Tengboche village, home to the oldest and biggest monastery in the entire Everest region. The monastery is home to ancient manuscripts, statues, and paintings. Continue your flight back to Kathmandu after spending some time there. We will drive you back to your hotel in the capital city after the chopper lands.
