Everest Base Camp Heli Tour with Landing:
Everest Base Camp Heli Tour with Landing is a rather different experience from EBC Trek. The chopper lands once at the Tenzing Hillary Airport, the gateway to EBC Trek, Gokyo Lakes Trek, and Everest Three High Passes Trek. After leaving the fuel at the Lukla Airport, you take a helicopter ride over Everest and land at Kalapathhar (5,555m).
As you may suffer from altitude sickness, the chopper does not stop there for more than 10-15 minutes. While at Kalapatthar, you witness the closest view of the Giant Himalayas including the world’s highest Mt. Everest (8,849m).
Capture as many pictures as your camera-battery can by keeping the sparkling snowcapped peaks on the background. Enjoy the Khumbu Icefall and the Khumbu Glacier from Kalapatthar View Point as well.
Then, the chopper of your Everest Base Camp Heli Tour with Landing lands at the helipad of Everest View Hotel. It is one of the world’s highest placed hotels where the shuttle waits for about 30 minutes. You can have breakfast or lunch by observing the Giant Himalayas including Mount Everest.
Next, the helicopter lands at the Lukla Airport for refueling and flies back to the Kathmandu Airport. In this way, your Everest Helicopter Tour with Landing completes within two hours and fifteen minutes.
Everest Base Camp Heli Tour without Landing:
If you want to fulfill your Everest Dream in less than two hours, Everest Base Camp Heli Tour without Landing is the only option.
The chopper lands at the Lukla Airport to unload the fuel and then, flies directly towards Everest Base Camp. During the flight, what you see is just the spellbinding mountains smiling and welcoming you to their vicinity.
Flying over the glacial lakes, Sherpa villages within Sagarmatha National Park, the Khumbu Icefall, the Khumbu Glacier, and many other peaks, the chopper returns to the Lukla Airport. After refueling there, your Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour without Landing ends as the helicopter flies back to Kathmandu.
