While many dreams to summit the peak, few reach Khumbu region after the long, exhausting treks. The Everest Heli tour is the perfect way to explore the treasures without the hassles of a long trek. The single day trip with few hours in Khumbu region takes you down to Everest Base camp and then to Kala Patthar.

Finally, you see Khumbu region with Langtang and Tibetan settlements.  The helicopter stops in Lukla to refuel and then proceeds to Everest Base camp.

The highlight of the trip is Mount Everest which you can capture in your camera from the window seat.  Dorje Lakpa, Mera peak, Lobuche, and Island peak are famous among many others. It is a breath-taking experience to have a bird-eye view of the majestic beauty of Khumbu region.

The flight stops at Kala Patthar to relish great views of the majestic mountains.  Spring and autumn are the best time to see the mountains, glaciers and lakes due to clear weather.  Trekkers passing through rhododendron forests and traditional settlements are also seen from the flight. The flight allows for panoramic views of all the snow-capped mountains from the window seats.
