Everest Base Camp Heli Tour Highlights
  • Thrilling helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp
  • Stunning landscapes, icefalls, and glaciers
  • beautiful villages and valleys
  • High-altitude landing at Kalapatter for unsurpassed Everest views
  • Breakfast at the Everest View Hotel
  • Great views of famous peaks such as Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and many more

With its magnificent mountain scenery and lush, hidden valleys, Nepal is beautiful from every angle. Adventurers have been climbing, trekking, and discovering Nepal’s secrets for over forty years. Now it is possible to discover perhaps its last secrets from the air.

Helicopter flights offer a unique birds'-eye view of the world’s tallest mountains and deepest valleys as they take you deep into the spine of these ice-clad monsters. It is the ideal solution if you are short on time, or perhaps you just fancy the thrill. We use a modern fleet of helicopters that are proven and particularly well-suited for mountainous terrain and passenger comfort.

The Everest Base Camp Heli Tour is arguably the best flying experience in the world. The tour begins in Kathmandu, then flies east to Lukla, the iconic Sherpa gateway to the Everest region. After a short stop for refueling, get ready for something very special: soaring up for a hawk-like view towards Mount Everest and many other great peaks. Gaze down on weathered gorges and the charming Sherpa villages, where Buddhist monasteries are perched precariously on narrow ridges. As you are effortlessly carried up into the harsh glacier moraine and above the Khumbu Glacier, cameras work overtime above the lushly forested foothills of the beautiful Dudh Kosi Valley. Spend a short time at Everest Base Camp or Kala Patthar (time is limited to around eight minutes due to the high altitude). There is still time to experience the surreal experience of a 360-degree dramatic panoramic view of Mt. Everest (8848 m) and the surrounding mountains, including Mt. Nuptse (7861 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6812 m), and Mt. Thamserku (6623 m). On the way back, stop for breakfast and a coffee (20 minutes) at Syangboche (Hotel Everest view). The name says it all, with more excellent views of Mt. Everest and its ranges. From here, you swoop back down to Lukla for refueling before the flight back to Kathmandu. Whether you are a solo traveler or looking to join a group, do not hesitate to contact the local experts.

    An amazing Everest Base Camp Heli Tour

    An absolutely fabulous and unforgettable trip. The weather was perfect for our helicopter ride to see Everest and base camp and the tour round Kathmandu was fascinating, guide knew his history. The trek on the second day was tiring and long but was worth it. Everything was well organised and very friendly guides. Can’t recommend this company enough
