Everest Heli Tour Itinerary

The Everest Base Camp helicopter tour starts from Tribhuvan Domestic Airport to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to the Everest region, Everest Base Camp, and Gokyo Lake trek. From Lukla, we proceed towards Everest areas to view Everest Glacier, Everest Ice Fall, Lhotse, South Col, and the mighty Mount Everest. You can see Tengboche Monastery and return to Kathmandu via Lukla. Landing at Lukla is quite a unique experience. The Lukla airport, built by Sir Edmund Hillary in the bygone days, is hemmed in by hills and mountains.

Looking for an Everest Heli Tour?

Lukla is a Sherpa territory, yet it is crowded with thousands of trekkers during the season who are on their way to the Everest trek. Your mountain flight will give you the closest view of Mount Everest and its surrounding peaks. This tour will be a major highlight of your life adventures. Although the EBC Heli tour provides a dimensional vision of the mountains, its closeness would be the prime attraction of this flight. You can either do the EBC trek or enjoy the day EBC helicopter tour within a few hours.

The heli tour to massive Mt. Everest, surrounded by other mighty mountains, is the dominating feature here. If time allows, you can also do the Everest Panorama Trek. Another highlight of this flight is landing at the Tengboche Monastery, the Vatican of the Sherpas, known as the world-famous "Tigers of the Snows". The Monastery, recently rebuilt, is a "must" visit in the Everest region.

Moreover, you can experience the serenity and beauty of Mt. Everest and its neighboring Himalayas. The impressive blend of people and place, along with the fragility of the environment, makes this EBC Heli tour a lifetime luxury experience.
