This is an exciting helicopter trip to Everest. In a couple of hours, you will be flying from the busy city of Kathmandu to arrive at Everest Region, the top of the world!
The trip takes you on an exciting helicopter ride from Kathmandu to Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla. The Lukla Airport is one of the highest airports in the world in terms of altitude. The scenic 45-minute flight from Kathmandu will take you above valleys, hills, lakes, farms, forests, rivers, and pastures to arrive at the mountain town of Lukla. It is in fact, the gateway into the Everest region where people from around the world begin their expedition and treks.
Located at 2,820 meters, Lukla is where it all begins - trekking, mountaineering, and camping. You will spend some time while the helicopter is refueled in this busy mountain town surrounded by high peaks on several sides. The flight continues above the extraordinarily white waters of Dhudh-Koshi river and passes through gorges near Kwangde. With fascinating views of Thamsherku and other peaks ahead, you will fly above Namche - the de facto Sherpa capital. Down below you will witness markets and houses with their colourful roofs. In the town below, people will be seen walking in every direction while the fresh crip environment will enliven your experience.
In this trip you will fly to Kalapatthar where you can have unobstructed panoramic views of the highest peaks on Earth. This vantage point is on the list of every visitor to Everest, and once you land here, you’ll understand why. From Kalapatthar you will fly to Syangboche for breakfast. This special breakfast is one which you will remember for a lifetime! Travel with your partner for a unique and precious morning in Nepal.
In this trip you will see close-up views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori and several other peaks of the Himalayan Range. The flight above Lukla, Namche, and Tengboche will become memorable as you will suddenly come face-to-face with the realm of Everest and see the iconic places that you’ve only read about. This trip from High Venture Plus will certainly leave an impression about Nepal in your mind, but more importantly, in a matter of hours, you’ll see how diverse and beautiful the world really is!
