Full Board During The Trek

    One of the representatives will pick you up and escort you to the hotel.

    The day starts with a short tour of the city of Kathmandu where we visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as Durbar Square; an ancient palace, Boudhanath Stupa, an important Tibetan Buddhist site, Pashupatinath Temple in the evening for the Aarati and Swayambhunath where monkeys play among the trees and watch from the tops of the stupa. Stay overnight at Kathmandu.

    The third day starts with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu; one of the most incredible airstrips in the world. The flight lasts around half an hour with the eye-catching the view of the Himalayas on one end, and lovely agricultural landscapes on the other. Afterwards, we trek towards the small town of Phakding (2,610m), where we will encounter many animals such as oxen, mule, and donkey along the way. The trail then winds its way to the Dudh Koshi River. We walk across suspension bridges over this glacially fed river while Buddhist prayer flags flutter in the breeze. Also notice the Tibetan scriptures carved into stones and that are scattered along the trail at various points, usually around stupas or near monasteries. Once we arrive in Phakding we will get settle and spend the night.

    Today the trek heads to Namche Bazar (3,440m). Considered a tourist hub and the real beginning point for expeditions to Mt. Everest. This is where we also enter into the Sagarmatha National Park where our guide will facilitate our entry. Namche Bazaar is a trade area for people, offering Saturday morning markets. It is also the first acclimatization point to facilitate adjustment to the altitude. We can see the snow- capped mountains from here such as Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse (8,414m), and Thamserku (6,623m). Stay overnight at Namche Bazar.

    The fifth day starts with the hike to Syangboche (3,720m), a village near Namche Bazar. There is an airport at Syangboche; the highest altitude airport. It is a home of Sherpa people where we can experience the Sherpas lifestyle. Also, we can view Mt. Ama Dablam (6,856m). Stay overnight at Syangboche.

    This day we will pass through more idyllic villages like Khunde, Khumjung, Phunke Tenga, and Tengboche. The Khunde Hillary Gompa of Khunde village and Khumjung Gompa of Khumjung village will be placed to visit along the way. Also, the Tengboche Monastery which is the largest in the whole Khumbu Region is another important. We will overnight in Tengboche.

    Passing the villages such as Pangboche, Somare and Jamdang and crossing rivers above small bridges we arrive at Pheriche. Pheriche lies above Tsola River and a small town where we can see yaks passing the way. This place is also a popular stop for trekkers and climbers. Stay at Pheriche.

    This will be another acclimatization day to allow the body to adjust to the increase in elevation. Instead of gaining more elevation we will continue to stay in town, yet enjoy some activity. Enjoy having tea and speaking with the locals during your stay.

    From Pheriche, we will trek to Lobuche (4,910m). The trail goes through rocky ridges, monasteries, and wonderful views of the Himalayas such as Lobuche (6,145m), Pumo Ri (7,165m), Cholatse (6,335m), Nuptse (7,861m), and Ama Dablam (6,856m). Along the way, we will also start to view the Khumbu Glacier. Stay at Lobuche.

    The tenth day begins with trekking to Gorakshep (5,140m) the highest year around an inhabited settlement. We trek uphill and reach the end of the glacier. This place is the closest stop to Everest Base Camp. We then hike to Kala Patthar above Gorakshep; the closest viewpoint to watch Mt. Everest (8,848m). The hike up to the knoll of Kala Patthar is surprisingly steep, but keeping a slow and steady pace allows us to reach the summit with success. Then we will return back and stay at Gorakshep.

    This is the final day of the trek and a visit to the Everest Base Camp (5,364m), we reach the base camp and enjoy views of Everest that feel so close you could reach out and touch its slopes. Also enjoy views of other peaks such as Pumori (7,161m), Lingtren (6,749m), Khumbutse (6,665m), Lhotse (8,414m), Nuptse (7,861m), Cho Oyo (8,188m), and Ama Dablam (6,856m) We fly back to Kathmandu by Heli, This beautiful Heli tour is saving time and energy as well which also provides you the best scenery that can’t be forgotten.

    This day is a rest day with some strolling around the streets of Thamel, and an evening walk around Boudhanath Stupa with the evening lights? Relax and enjoy your last evening in Kathmandu.

One Review to “Everest Base Camp Heli Trek”

    • Carl M

    I always had a dream to stand below Mt. Everest and raise my hands up to the sky in joy. My dreams came true when I booked a helicopter ride from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp. Himalayan Summit organized the helicopter ride for me and it went as smooth as creamy butter. It was a beautiful day with wonderful service from the team. Will never forget the experience.
