Mount Everest (8848m) and its base camp have been synonymous with glory and pride for travelers around the world. While trekking is the standard approach to conquering the base camp, Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour offers a different perspective to achieve the feat. This day tour to Everest Base Camp features a helicopter flight to the base camp over the esteemed mountains in the Everest range including Mount Everest (8848m) itself.

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, the summer and spring seasons have a moderate temperature during the day.
