Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return

The trip starts with an exciting trans-Himalayan flight to Lukla, a popular gateway to Everest. We hike up to Namche Bazaar where we spend 2 nights for acclimatization. We trek further to hilltop village of Tengboche which houses a vibrant Buddhist Monastery. Next, we continue to Dingboche via Pangboche for the second acclimatization. Here we climb the hill just behind the village for unrivalled views of Nuptse Glacier, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Everest and more.   

As we gain elevation, temperatures drop and forest and farmland gives way to dwarf scrub, then rock and ice. After a night halt at Lobuche, we trek to the highest village, Gorak Shep. Following the rugged trail along the glacier and ice-fall towards the summit, we reach the Base Camp of Everest. The hike to Everest Base Camp via Khumbu glacier might be challenging but the rewards worth it. We hike down to Gorakh Shep for overnight stay.

A pre-dawn climb to Kapatthar hill ensure the majestic view of Everest, Lhoste, Nuptse and many surrounding Himalayas. We spend night at Gorakh Shep before taking a morning chartered flight back to Kathmandu with superb view of high valleys, lakes, glaciers and stunning mountain vistas – an experience that will last forever.
