1 Day





Best Season:

March-May and September - November

Nepal, being a land of mountains, has attracted quite a number of tourists, mountaineers, and adventure lovers. People from all over the world visit the Everest region to witness the world’s tallest peak ‘Mount Everest’ within sniffing distance. Everest Base Camp trekking takes a great deal of endurance and a sufficient amount of time but the end result will take you to Utopia. You will forget the pain you endured and all your efforts will pay off once you reach the Himalayan province. But, such treks may not be possible for every one of us.

Some of us would like to explore base camps and pleasurable Everest range in a short period of time and without much physical efforts.
Everest helicopter tour is one of the adventurous and thrilling tours to view the dignified Everest in the vicinity. Everest helicopter tour in Nepal is probably the best option to witness massive glorious Himalaya range within a fraction of the time.
The amazing sky journey above the towering peaks embarks from Kathmandu Domestic Airport. Everest helicopter tour is a convenient alternative to long trekking tours for the observation of the Everest region thoroughly.

Taking a close glimpse of the breathtaking profile of the Everest range, rocky terrains, green villages, rivers, and lakes, sparking snow-capped mountain peaks from an elevation is an overwhelmingly impressive experience.
The helicopter will alight at base camps for sightseeing where you can capture the beauty of the magnificent Himalayas and its domain in the photographs.

The Everest helicopter sightseeing tour will reward you with unforgettable memories which you will recall with a smiling face and proudly share with others. Then, the next helicopter landing will be at Kalapathar. The location is at 5,550 meters height and gives the best view of Mount Everest and other mountains.

The most attractive and interesting feature of Kalapathar’s point is that it gives you the best sunrise view in the morning on a clear day. From Kalapathar, you can observe the incredible panoramic view of a number of peaks like Mt. Everest, Kwangde, Pumari, Thamserku, Mt. Nuptse, Gaurishankar, Ama Dablam, Mt. Lhotse, and many others.
Not only the Everest range but you will get to witness other high and mighty mountain peaks too, that is proudly holding the head of the Nepalese high. After an exhilarating and gratifying helicopter journey of the Everest region, the helicopter lands for breakfast and finally heads back to the Kathmandu Domestic Airport. The total tour duration is of 4 hours.
The strong point of Everest helicopter tour is that it doesn’t demand tiring and painful physical efforts, the tour is short and fruitful, you get to fly above the high peaks, and your tight schedule is not a problem.

I was so surprised to see how the management was done. It was so well organized. And similarly, throughout the tour, the staff were so kind to me and respectful. My guide Lakpa was so knowledgable and respectful. Thank you Blue Lake travels for making this possible.
