A day Itinerary:
We will pick you in the morning from Kathmandu hotel and take you to tribhuvan international airport by our representatives. We will take you to private transportation. After doing check in we will wait some time to clear the weather or open airport. As soon as the weather clear we will be getting inside the helicopter to get ready for the journey of helicopter to base camp. We will be flying through the bhaktapur city passing the world town and then crossing the nagarkot villages then to junbensi village. Seeing the Himalayas ranges and villages we will reach lukla village which is situated on 2800 m elevation. We have tenzing Hillary airport on this town and we will be landing on airport.
Lukla airport is also the fueling stations for lots of helicopter. The helicopters keep the fuel there and fuel it on the way back. We will also keep some fuel on lukla airport and ready to fly towards namche villages passing phakding, monjo, jhorsella and Hillary suspension bridges. On reaching namche you can see the stunning village on the hill which is the Sherpa capital called namche village. Just above namche there will see sangbochea airport. Big helicopter land there as transportation and some flights too.We will just pass that airport and reach Everest view hotel. We ill leave two people there, if we have 5 people in flights because helicopter does not carry full people on high elevation.
After leaving some people we will start fly through the tengbochea Monetary and pangbochea village. We will pass ferichea village then laubecha village. After that we will pass gorekshap and then helicopter land on kalapather hill which is around 5380 meters elevation. This hill is known as kalapather view point and its highest point is 5550 meters. This is the same view point which is climbed by Everest base camp trekkers to see Everest close. We will get out from helicopter to see the Everest and spend some time on kalapather. We will click some stunning pictures and videos here. After spend around half and hour we will fly towards EBC. Only very rare conditions helicopter land in base camp but most of the time it fly over the base camp. Due to wind and glaciers move its always high risk to land on base-camp so, most of the flights avoids landing on base camp to be safe. Like the same way this flight also fly near khambu ice fall and fly very close to the ground of base camp and fly back through khambu glacier. We can see some Everest trekkers and in climbing season we can see lots of tents and people on base camp that’s why during climbing season helicopter do not go close to base-camp because risk for tents and people on base camp.
After living the dream to seeing base camp and Everest close we will fly back through ferichea, tengbochea and land on Everest vie hotel. Those who finish visit to base camp start having breakfast on Everest view hotel and the pilot fly again with other people doing the same things and coming back then have breakfast and start fly back to lukla where we will land and keep fuel on helicopter then fly all the way back seeing beautiful mountains and hill. Land in Kathmandu airport and our representatives will drop you to Kathmandu hotel where you stay, either in thamel or around.
