Fulfill your dream to Everest in the most exclusive way!
This amazing Heli tour takes you as close to Mt. Everest as you can reach in a day. The flight will take off from Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport at 7 AM. The helicopter will fly east, parallel to the Himalayan range. A breathtaking landscape will unfold as your pilot glides the helicopter above picturesque Sherpa mountain villages, gompas (monasteries), emerald mountain lakes and a snowy expanse of Himalayan peaks and glaciers. Khumbu Himal, Ama Dablam, Kantega, Nuptse, Lhotse, Pumori and Mt. Everest are but some of the peaks you will get to see up close throughout the trip. If you take this flight during the climbing season, you may also spy colorful-tented camps of expedition groups on the mountains. There will also be a brief stopover (5-7mins) at Kala Patthar-5545m (the site of the ‘World’s Highest Cabinet Meeting’) for you to take pictures. From Kala Patthar, you can get the closest view of Mount Everest. At 8:45 AM, you will have breakfast at one of the world’s highest resort Hotel Everest View. By 9:15 AM, you will board the helicopter and fly back to Kathmandu.
Please do note that the stopover at Kala Patthar is subject to weather conditions. We may have to forego the visit at Kala Patthar if bad weather prevails.
