The Kalapatthar and Mt. Everest  Helicopter Tour is an easy venture that one can do in a matter of a few hours. Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with landing is unlike the famous Everest Base Camp trek and other adventurous treks in the Everest region. It does not demand 12 days and above difficult walking time to reach the lap of Mount Everest, Everest Base Camp (5,364 m/17,598 ft).

We understand reaching the EBC is a huge accomplishment for many adventurous hearts around the world. And not everyone can afford to do the long treks, either because of their health issues or time limitations. Thus, our team has precisely designed the EBC Helicopter Tour itinerary. We have kept every little detail in mind to offer you the best journey of your lifetime in the Everest region.

Before we move further towards detailed information about the E.B.C Helicopter Tour package, we want to remind you that our Mt.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Views

Everest Base Camp (EBC) helicopter tour offers the finest Himalayan scenery. The aerial views of the Himalayas you will get to behold during the Everest Heli tour are out of the world. As the helicopter takes off, the lush green hills, verdant valleys, rushing rivers, picturesque mountain villages, and the snow-capped mountains unfold themselves one by one in front of you.

Trust us, the panorama you will see on this helicopter tour will make you emotional and touch the core of your heart. We have been there and felt it too. Our guests said to us, “I felt rejuvenated. A new spark and hope have ignited inside me. I felt calm and connected to myself. The Himalayas are magical.”

You will get to be face to face with some of the mighty eight-thousanders like Mt. Everest (8,848 m/29,03 ft), Mt. Makalu (8,463 m/27,766 ft), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 m/26,864 ft), and Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m/27,940 ft).

Major Attractions of Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with Landing

There are many things the Khumbu region and this helicopter tour offers. You might be wondering, what are the major attractions of the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with Kala Patthar Landing. Below we have talked about the places you will visit during the Everest Base Camp helicopter tour.

Lukla

In northeastern Nepal, at 2,860 meters (9,383 ft), is a small Sherpa town called Lukla. It is the starting point of all the adventurous treks in the Khumbu region (Everest region). And the most renowned is the Tenzing-Hillary Airport.

The short and steep runway of Lukla airport has made it quite famous as one of the most dangerous airports in the world. The thrill of landing and takes-off one gets to experience while flying in and out of this airport is unreal.

We will stop twice at Lukla airport, at the beginning and the end of the Everest Base Camp Helicopter with flight landing to refuel the aircraft. You will get 10 to 15 minutes to refresh and look around.

Kala Patthar

Kala Patthar (5,644 m/18,519 ft) is also known as black rock. It is a famous vantage point in the Khumbu region, located on the south ridge of Mt. Pumori above the Gorak Shep. Fun Fact: Gorak Shep is the first base camp of Mt. Everest. Trekkers ascend to Kala Patthar upon returning from EBC. Kala Patthar offers a glorious sunrise and outstanding views of Everest and other mountains.

Our helicopter Everest tour lands at Kala Patthar (if not EBC). This place offers better views than Everest Base Camp itself. For your information, Kala Patthar is also the highest altitude one can reach in the Himalayas without a climbing permit.

Upon landing at the Kala Patthar, you will have around 10 minutes to soak in the beauty and take pictures. Because of high altitude and thin air, we can not stay at Kala Patthar more than that. Moreover, staying more than 10 minutes will also make you vulnerable to altitude sickness.

Everest Base Camp

Travelers usually get confused about the base camp of Everest as there are two of them. The first one is the south base camp located in Nepal at 5,364 meters (17,598 ft). And the second one is the north base camp located in Tibet at 5,150 meters (16,900ft).

Climbers use both base camps to climb Mt. Everest. It depends upon the wish of the climbers, whether they want to scale the mountain from the southeast ridge or northeast ridge.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with landing flight takes you to the south base camp in Nepal. We may or may not land at the Everest base camp because of the accessibility, and of course, the wish of the group.

*Note: The top of Mt. Everest is not visible from the Everest Base Camp. Other mountains like Lhotse and Nuptse block the view.

Syangboche Airstrip

Syangboche airstrip above Namche Bazar at 3,780 meters (12,402 ft) is the second closest airstrip to EBC. This airstrip is mostly used by travelers who plan on visiting the nearby hotel. The runway is short, 405 meters (1,329 ft) in length.

Syangboche Airstrip is not licensed for commercial operations. It is only open to private flights from Kathmandu or Lukla. It takes around 7 to 11 minutes to reach Syangboche Airstrip from Lukla.

The mountain views are superb from here. During the Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour, we will land at Syangboche airstrip. And further hike to the Everest View Hotel.

Everest View Hotel

At a great height is one of the highest hotels in the world, Everest View Hotel. Opened in 1971, Hotel Everest View got listed in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2004 for its location at 3,962 m (13,000 ft). The hotel offers a luxurious stay and world-class service at that altitude.

Our Everest Base Camp helicopter tour with landing will take you to this beautiful hotel for a delicious breakfast. You can enjoy the breakfast of your choice with a breathtaking mountain panorama. The most interesting fact about this hotel is that you can see Mt. Everest from all its windows.

Brewed coffee, a refreshing glass of juice, fancy champagne, or whatever you want, Everest View Hotel will make your short stay there unforgettable.

If you are lucky and get clear weather & views, then Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour in winter has its distinct charm. And trust us, the Himalayas look The best in the winter.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with Landing Detailed Itinerary

Phase I: Wake up early and reach the domestic airport by 6:30 AM to 7:00 AM

Everest Base Camp Helicopter flight landing tour begins early in the morning. Mornings have the best weather conditions. If you want, we can pick you up from the hotel and drop you at the domestic terminal. Before boarding, there will be a short briefing session by the flight instructor.

You will get to know all the important information about the Everest Base Camp helicopter tour. After the briefing, meet the captain and board the helicopter. Listen to your captain's instructions during flight, and do not do anything silly.

Phase II: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla Airport

Altitude: 2,845 m/9,334 ft

Duration: 45 minutes

The second phase of the Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour flies to Lukla airport. The flight offers stunning aerial views of the historical sites of Kathmandu. Gradually the views unfold to lush green hills and valleys. The Ganesh Himal and Mt. Gaurishankar is the first mountain to come into our sight. We will see many other snow-capped mountains in the distance and land at Lukla airport.

Phase III: Refuel and fly to Kala Patthar

Altitude: 5,644 m/18,519 ft

Duration: 15 minutes

We land at the Lukla airport to refuel the helicopter before ascending further. It takes approximately 15 minutes to do all the refueling-related stuff. Until then, you can look around and take a breath.

After refueling the chopper, we will continue flying towards the Kala Patthar. We will be flying over the beautiful Sherpa settlement areas like Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep. As per the weather condition, we will be either landing at the base camp Everest or Kala Patthar.

The views from Kala Patthar are more stunning than the EBC. You can see striking views of the mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Ama Dablam, etc.

Phase IV: Land at Kala Patthar and explore

Duration: 10 minutes

The landing period at the Kala Patthar is 10 minutes. We do not allow to stay more than that at this height. The first thing, it can trigger altitude sickness. And the second thing, the thin air makes starting the engine difficult, so the pilot does not turn off the engine.

You can see mountains all around you with close views of the giant Mt. Everest. Do not miss out on taking pictures. The landing time at Kala Patthar is short. However, it will be enough to enjoy the surrounding views.

Phase V: Fly to Syangboche Airstrip (3,780 m/12,402 ft) and hike to Everest View Hotel (3,962 m/13,000 ft)

Altitude: 3,962 m/13,000 ft

Flying over the Khumbu Icefall and Khumbu Glacier, we will turn towards the Syangboche Airstrip. This part of the Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with landing allows you to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast at one of the highest hotels in the world, Everest View Hotel.

Land at the Syangboche Airstrip and hike to the Everest View Hotel. It is 182 meters above the airstrip. Everest View Hotel is a luxury hotel in the Everest region. The hotel offers all the modern comforts. Here, we will spend half an hour to 45 minutes having breakfast.

*Fun Fact: You can see Mt. Everest from every window of Everest View Hotel.

Phase VI: Fly to Lukla for refueling and back to Kathmandu

Duration: 1-hour

After breakfast, we fly back to Lukla and land to refuel the chopper. The views will be fantastic while flying back. From Lukla, we will once again fly high and approach Kathmandu airport.

Internally satisfying

I was going through some rough times in my personal life. I could not decide what I need to do or what I want. One of my friends suggested that trekking in Nepal could be the best option for you at this moment of your life.

I am not much of a traveling guy. I had never gone to another country for trekking or anything like that. At this point in my life, where nothing was going right I decided to visit Nepal. I had some ideas about Nepal through my friends. Browsing through the internet, I found various packages related to Helicopter landing to Everest Base Camp.

I was pretty much excited to visit Nepal and Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. I started communicating with Exciting Nepal and after a few chats, I came to know they were experts in this field. They seemed so polite, friendly and professional, I decided to go with them. They resolved my queries and confusion without any delay.

Within a few weeks, I met them in Kathmandu. Mr. Subash and his team had made all the necessary arrangements. The helicopter ride towards the Everest region was one of the best decisions I made till now. Lukla was the first destination, I am still amazed by the landscape and surroundings of this area. All those snow-capped mountains and cool breeze passing through the ear, I won’t forget it anytime soon.

Kala Pattar was the highlight of the tour. The view you get from there is beyond imagination. I felt some instant connection with this place. I don’t know whether it is me or the place but I felt some pure vibe with this Everest region itself. I would like to thank my friend and Exciting Nepal team for making this trip internally satisfying.

Really Exciting the Everest Helicopter tour

Four of us booked this with Exciting Nepal Treks. we contacted Mr. Subash via WhatsApp, we always got a quick reply even a mid-night, Found that the company is very professional for the Everest base camp Helicopter tour.

We were staying at Hotel Soltee Crown plaza which was a bit away from the city. We have taken care of all pickup and drop. Altogether we were only four of us so we did two shuttles with two people to the Everest base camp from Syngboche to Everest Kalapatthar. Landing into the Kalapatthar was amazing, the View of Mt.

Everest Helicopter Tour

We did a once in a lifetime helicopter flight to Lukla, fly over base camp (unfortunately it was a bit high) and a brief stop over at Kalapathar. The flight was amazing as we fly through the valleys and have an exhilarating view of the mountains. Short of trekking to base camp we could see the Khumbu glacier and the many tents that dotted the base camp. We were lucky that on that morning the sky was cloudless and Mount Everest was in full view.
I had chosen Exciting Nepal Treks and Expedition because it had very good reviews. Indeed although the shop was small, Subhash was very professional, always ready to answer all my questions about safety, cost, etc. I even requested for an extra oxygen tank for my friend and that was catered for.
I can say that Subash is a reliable agent and one can place one’s trust in his organization. Truly recommended

Outstanding aerial tour in the Himalayas

A close friend suggested this stunning Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour. Frankly, I was very nervous about the helicopter ride as I had never been on a helicopter before. But the outstanding crew at Exciting Nepal assured us and helped me get past my anxieties. The exciting trip was just out of this world. The sharp pick up timings, smooth ride and the overall management of the trip was very well organized. The aerial tour was absolutely breathtaking and provided us with stunning views of the snow capped mountains from up above.

The flight captain and the crew of the Helicopter was very friendly and gave us a detailed tour of the stunning Everest Base Camp. We made some great memories that we are going to cherish all our lives. Highly recommended!

Amazing 2 days Chisapani Hike

I did the Chisapani hike in December of 2016 wth my college friends. Our trip was managed by Exciting Nepal, a travel-based company in Thamel. They had the best reasonable price for the trips and their hospitality was great.

The day hike to the wilderness of Shivapuri National Park was absolutely amazing. We were told by our guide that 300 species of birds and animals like Leopard, Wild Boars, Pangolin inhabited this National Park. Our trip guide was very humble and flexible to our needs and last-minute changes. Almost six hours of hiking was pretty tough in the beginning but gradually it became easier after a few hours. Water Falls, scenic view of Kathmandu valley, wild chirping of birds, natural vegetation, and escape from hustle and bustle of the city area is what you can look for in this short hike.

We stayed overnight at Hotel Trekker’s Paradise. We were whole-heartedly welcomed and served warm and refreshing meals there. The hotel room was very home-like: clean with cozy beds. After continuously hiking for almost 7 hours on the following day, we took a local bus from Jharsing Pauwa and headed towards our hotel.

We all were immensely pleased by the hospitality and outstanding management of the trip by Exciting Nepal. They provided us with adequate information and a knowledgeable guide which made our trip more amazing. Thank you Exciting Nepal.

Intriguing Helicopter Tour to Everest Base Camp

Exciting Nepal arranged our Helicopter tour straight away to the mighty Himalayas in last December. I and my husband along with our kids toured to Everest Base Camp as we always wanted to get as close as we could to the Himalayas. We were lacking enough time to hike upward to the Base Camp so after an hour of search through the internet, we consulted with Mr. Subash K.C about our expectations and requirements. We were totally reassured for doubts and questions we had then we finalized the tour.

That was our first ever experience on a chopper flying above the shiny and snowy mountains. We were flying over some of the highest mountains on the planet. All the crew members were strictly professionals and responsive to every query we’ve got. We flew from T.I.A in Kathmandu and landed for refueling at Lukla forty-five minutes later. On the way, we were able to see thick rhododendron forest, passing one hill after another, leaving behind valleys and small settlements. The aerial view of the landscape, ice, and glacial lakes is worth mentioning.
In just a matter of a few hours, we were at the base of the world’s highest mountain. The surrounding view was breathtaking and unexplainable in words. I would suggest every adventure lover and enthusiastic traveler do the Everest Base Camp helicopter tour once in their lifetime.

Transportation, tour management, guidance and information, all were fine as expected. I would suggest Exciting Nepal’s tour and service to my friends.
