The Everest Helicopter tour is the time-honored choice for the mountain lovers and enjoys the pleasant experience of flying over the gigantic Mount Everest which is the World’s tallest mountain in the world. If you are short on time and money isn’t the issues then you can observe such massive Himalaya sequence with a helicopter. You have a choice either land at Everest Base Camp or land at Kalapathar, but for the best panoramic view of the mountains along with Mt. Everest 8848m we recommend you to land at Kalapathar. The tour starts from Kathmandu airport and it’s a journey to explore the vastness of Himalayas.

Everest Helicopter tour is one of the most popular and single options to examine the plentiful impressive mountain including mt. Everest [8,848m] within few hours and minutes. Besides the Everest, you will be able to see the famous mountains like Pumari, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamaserku, Kongde, Gaurishanker, and many others. The journey on the sky will reward you with a breathtaking portrait of the Himalayas,  glittering snow peaks, and tranquil green valleys. We land at Pheriche helipad before we flying to the Everest base camp. We then make a stopover at Kala Patthar which is the best viewpoint to admire the rare and up-close beauty of the mighty Himalayas.  Also, get the photograph done before we take a flight back to Kathmandu to end the exhilarating Helicopter day trip.

      heli tour with Mountain treks Nepal

      This is a once in a lifetime experience! While I had to shuffle the date around a few times due to weather, it was very much worth the wait. The tour operator (Mr. Bharat ) and pilot ( Mr Sedai) were both extremely professional and experienced. If you’re in Kathmandu and thinking about this experience, don’t pass it up. It will be a memory you will never forget!
