Trip Introduction

Day Tour of Everest Base Camp in Helicopter is a great way to experience Everest in just one day. We begin our helicopter tour from Kathmandu and fly towards the east to Lukla which is a beautiful Sherpa village.

From our helicopter, we also admire great views of the Khumbu Glacier which is ideally located between Mt. Everest and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge.

Then we fly to Syangboche and spend around twenty minutes at a hotel for breakfast while also admiring the beautiful Himalayan vista. We fly back to Lukla for fueling and return to Kathmandu and end our amazing helicopter day tour of Everest. The entire Day Tour of Everest Base Camp in Helicopter gives us a unique opportunity to not just reach the base camp of Everest, the highest mountain on Earth but get the best aerial views of Everest and neighbouring Himalayas on an exclusive helicopter flight.
