Main attractions of Everest base camp helicopter tour with landing
A quick and short trip to the Khumbu region
Everest base camp helicopter tour has made it possible for travelers to explore the Himalayas in a very short time. This makes it a great side trip too if you get an extra day or morning free during your trip to Nepal. Unlike the Everest base camp trek package, you do not have to commit to a long trekking period to reach Kala Patthar.
Get to see the beautiful Sherpa villages and have some memorable interactions with them
Everyone has seen the beauty of the Sherpa villages from the ground, but only a handful of travelers have watched the mesmerizing aerial views of the Sherpa villages. The tiny settlement areas from the sky add more character to the overall scenery.
Moreover, you land in some of the villages and get to meet the locals. Of course, you'll have a short moment to observe the daily lifestyle and have some meaningful interactions, but those little moments will enhance your tour.
You will see all the famous villages Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Pangboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep during the flight.
Enjoy the aerial views of the Everest region
The Everest base camp helicopter flight lets the participants have a stunning aerial view of the Everest region. Comparatively, a very less number of travelers get to witness the aerial scenery, which makes the helicopter flight very special. The densely forested trail, rivers, terraces, hills, glaciers, icefalls, moraines, etc from the sky are fantastic.
Multiple landings at different places
We have three confirmed landings and one optional landing during the Everest helicopter tour. The places where you land are Lukla airport, Kala Patthar, and Hotel Everest View. We only land in Pheriche if we have to add a helicopter to the tour. These landings take the whole helicopter tour to the next level. Touching down the ground even more in a short time will let you immerse more in the venture and feel the cold Himalayan air & soothing scent.
Witness some of the giant mountains in the world up close
You get to witness breathtaking views of many snow-clustered mountains during the Everest base camp helicopter tour with landing. The views include the five highest mountains in the world- Everest (8,848 m), Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463 m), and Cho Oyu (8,188 m).
Apart from them, numerous other peaks, such as Nuptse (7,861 m), Thamserku (6,608 m), Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Khumbila (5,761 m), Cholatse (6,440 m), Island Peak (6,160 m), Mera Peak (6,476 m), Baruntse (7,162 m), Kongde Ri (6,187 m), Pumori (7,061 m), etc, are seen.
