Everest Heli Trek

Everest Heli Trek Description


Everest Base Camp is one of the most visited base camps in the world. It is also one of the most difficult base camps to ascend and one of the most time consuming too. And if you are looking to save time and are not fit enough to take on the trek , Everest Heli Trek might be the  best trek for you.

Everest Heli Trek

Everest Heli Trek is one of the most exciting (if not the most exciting ) Heli Trek in Nepal. It’s not the only option to get to Everest Base Camp (there are a lot of other options and we have them all) but it sure is the easiest one there is.

The duration for Everest Heli tour is about 3 hours. You’ll fly through the Everest region and will be allowed to land at the base camp for 5 minutes because of the fear of altitude sickness and when you return you’ll be allowed to land for 20 minutes at Syangboche(you’ll stay at Hotel Everest View to take your breakfast) and enjoy the stunning views of Mount Everest. Then you’ll be flown back to Kathmandu from Lukla.
