Everest Base Camp Heli trek

Everest Region

Trip Overview

Mount Everest (8,848 m/29,029 ft), the tallest mountain on the planet, was an unclimbable mountain until May 29, 1953. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa were the first men to reach the summit of Everest.

Today, however, reaching Everest’s base camp is much easier thanks to the service of the Heli trek.

In this journey, we will travel to Lukla and then hike to Namche Bazaar, stopping for a night in Monjo along the way. From here, the adventure to meet Everest begins. We will go via high mountains and steep hills to Everest Base Camp, the ultimate goal of every trekker.

Then we’ll return to Kalapathar for a better glimpse of Everest before flying back to Kathmandu via helicopter. Throughout the trip, you do not need to carry your bag since we are hiring porters for you. Thus, without feeling rushed or concerned about anything, just live the journey.

Kathmandu, the city teeming with hustle and bustle, is a fantastic destination for sightseeing. This little town contains seven UNESCO World Heritage monuments.

Day 3Flight to Lukla (2,860 m) and hike up to Monjo (2,835 m)

On the very first trip to Lukla, most passengers would agree that it was the most amusing flight they had ever experienced. The best views of the Himalayas are from below, as well as the landing at Lukla Airport. Once you've experienced it, you'll understand what I mean. So, the adventure begins here. We'd then have a hot breakfast in Lukla. Take some time to relax. to feel the chill of the Himalayan air. We'd then climb up to Monjo. Stay in Monjo for the night.

We'd start our journey from Monjo and make our way to Namche Bazaar, the Himalayan gateway town. Namche Bazaar, also known as Nemche Bazaar or Namche Baza, is a small and popular village in the Khumbu region that offers the greatest hotels as well as banking, shopping, and expedition equipment. Staying the night at Namche Bazaar-Lodge

Day 5Acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar(3,440m)

Even if you are feeling OK, never, ever underestimate the acclimatization day. Acclimatization will assist you in adapting to the climbing altitude and will provide you with a free day to hike around Namche Bazaar. Every Saturday, a temporary market known as Haatbazaar in Nepalese is built up to this height. If we arrive in Namche on Friday, you'll be able to see it. Furthermore, you can use your acclimatization day by hiking up to Chhorkung, which is located above Namche, or by walking to the small runway at Syangboche. Stay the night in Namche Bazaar-Lodge Namche Bazaar's other attractions include: The Kunde Hillary Hospital Sagarmatha Visitors Center and the Sherpa Culture Museum are both located on the mountain of Sagarmatha.

Day 6Namche Bazaar(3,440 m) to Debouche(3,820 m)

On day 6, we would leave Namche, following the hilly trail with the most panoramic view of the Himalayas. We would arrive in Tengboche, where we would also have lunch, after walking over rocky and difficult trails and visiting neighboring gompas and forests. Tengboche or Thyangboche (3,860 m) is a small settlement with a stunning view of the Himalayan peaks, including Tawache, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and Thamserku. It is also the site of Tengboche monastery, the largest monastery in the Khumbu region. Dawa Choling Gompa is another name for Tengboche monastery (Thyangboche monastery). We'd then keep heading toward Debouche. Stay the night in Debouche.

Day 7Debouche(3,820 m) to Dingboche(4,410 m)

Today, we would begin our journey from Debouche (3,820 m) to Dingboche (4,410 m), which would take roughly 5–6 hours. It'll be a hard day of hiking, but it'll be worth it because the hike begins with one of the best and most fascinating vistas of Ama Dablam. We'd get to Pangboche and then Dingboche after crossing Milingo and a little footbridge. You may also notice that the air is dryer from here. Stay the night at Dingboche.

Day 8Acclimatization day at Dingbouche(4,410m)

Here! Another day of acclimatization is planned, including a short climb in nearby Nangkartshang, where there are meditation retreats. A trained guide would undoubtedly take you much higher than Nangkartshang, where you may see the heavenly clean views of Cholatse (6,440 m), Taboche (6,542 m), Chhukung (5,550 m), and Makalu (8,481 m). Stay the night at Dingboche.

Day 9Dingboche(4,410 m) to Lobuche(4,940 m)

Today, we shall continue our journey to EBC, our ultimate goal. The day after tomorrow, we'd be standing at the base camp. So, after we started walking, we'd stop at Dughla, a wonderful area to have an early lunch. We'd climb over the looming pass from here. It is regarded as one of the most difficult trails on the Everest base camp trip. As a result, we shall take our time passing it. After paying attention to the memorials of climbers and porters who perished on Everest at the summit, we will resume our trek to the cold settlement of Lobuche. Stay in Lobuche for the night

Day 10Lobuche(4,940 m) to Gorak Shep(5,164 m)

Because of the altitude, Lobuche, a little settlement under the shadow of Mount Everest, is considered a difficult location to visit. Observing the Khumbu Glacier and then hiking the Changri Shar Glacier would be a difficult feat in the dry air. We'd fight those anxieties and lack of space by dehydrating ourselves to keep going. It would appear that the journey from Lobuche to Gorak Shep would take 3–4 hours. So go ahead and take your time and enjoy the scenarios. Stay in Gorak Shep for the night.

Day 11Gorakshep(5,164 m) to Everest Base camp then again back to Gorak Shep(5,164 m)

A two-hour hike from Gorakshep would take you to the dream destination of Everest Base Camp.  Breakfast at the Everest Base Camp, where the journey of the highlanders who chase their ambition of conquering Everest begins, would undoubtedly be a memorable event. Despite our difficulties, we will not pass up the opportunity to see Mount Everest. As a result, we will trek back to Gorak Shep before ascending to Kala Patthar. We'd be staying in Gorakshep so that we could get up early and get to Kala Patthar as soon as possible.

Day 12Gorakshep(5,164 m) to Kala Patthar(5,643 m) and fly back to Kathmandu

It will be our final day of trekking and the highlight of the Everest Base Camp trek. We will leave Gorakshep early in the morning and go to Kala Patthar for the best possible view of Everest that we can catch on film. We will travel back to Kathmandu via chopper from Kala Patthar after spending some time enjoying the scenery and eating breakfast. The Dwarika Hotel is where you'll spend the night. Visit a spa and unwind for a while.

Day 13Departure

It’s time to say goodbye to Nepal; today is the day of your departure. Following breakfast, our tour manager will check you out of the hotel and transport you to Tribhuvan International Airport.
