Similarly, it is also perfect for those who lack the physical ability or the time to engage in tiring treks.

Overview of the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

First of all, the trip begins from Kathmandu where a company staff will pick you up at the hotel. Then, you drive to the Tribhuvan International Airport. Here, you will complete all the formalities before you board on a helicopter and head towards the Everest region. Exiting the confines of the Kathmandu Valley, lush hills will welcome you and guide you towards the Khumbu Valley. Then, you will continue northeast over the vast stretch of the Sagarmatha National Park. Finally, you will reach the Everest Base Camp and explore the pristine setting around the base camp. Here, you can savor the views of the Mt, Everest (8848m), Khumbu Glacier, and Icefall. As you explore the base camp, you also have breakfast in the company of the grand mountains. Then, you fly back to Kathmandu and end the tour with a final glimpse of the Everest Himalayas. While spring offers beautiful views of the hills, the autumn season is the best time for the tour. However, winter and rainy seasons see difficult weather and climatic conditions for the tour.
