Everest Base Camp Trek (Return by Helicopter)

The Everest Base Camp trek package provides you with an utmost spectacular snow topped high mountain scenery, experience of the Sherpa culture, and excellent tea house views of the Khumbu Himalaya of Nepal. In this trip, you can view four of the tallest peaks in the world, namely, Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Makalu (8463m) and Mt. Cho Oyu, (8156m). Trekking to the base camp of Mt. Everest starts with a very exciting flight from the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu to the Tenzing Hillary airport in Lukla, then an uphill trek to a beautiful Sherpa settlement and the trading capital of the Khumbu region called Namche Bazar. After a one-day acclimatization in Namche Bazar, you start your trek for another two days to Dingboche (4,260m). Another two days of trek will lead to Everest base camp, passing through Gorakshep, the flat land below Kalapathar (5,545m) and Mt. Pumori.

Trekking to the Everest base camp gives you a chance to witness the lifestyle of the Sherpa people, observe the amazing and unique flora and fauna that the national park has to offer, and visit huge monasteries and museums whose existence goes very far behind the time period. The best time to trek Everest is at the beginning of September to October/ November and March to April/May.
