Helicopter landing tour begins from the Tribhuvan International Airport in
Kathmandu. You will be in the company of sublime sceneries in just a few
minutes after the take-off. The tour makes the first stop at Lukla (2840m).
Here, we refuel the Helicopter, and the journey resumes with the gorgeous views
of the Himalayas. The tour finally settles at the Everest Base Camp after
floating over the Khumbu glacier for a short while. The Everest Base camp at
5,364 meters offers glorious views of the Himalayan ranges, including peaks
like Pumori (7165m), Cholatse (6635m), and Nuptse (7861m). At the base camp, we
hike around for about 2 hours and relish the panorama of the Himalayas. Then,
the tour returns to Kathmandu.
The weather at the base camp is mostly cold and frigid
throughout the year. However, summer and spring seasons have a moderate
temperature during the day. As the base camp is at an altitude of 5,364 meters,
participants have to be careful to avoid falling prey to Acute Mountain
Sickness. To do so, you will have to apply minimal physical exertions to your
body. Do inform the trip leader immediately if you feel uneasy. Finally, there

Base Camp. In such situations, we will make necessary arrangements to continue
