The best views of the Khumbu Himalayan spread. From the helicopter, you initially can observe the changing landscape, from green valley to snow-covered mountains. Then, we fly over Everest Base Camp and stop at Kala Patthar (5,644m/18,519 ft) which provides the best close up view of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Nuptse (7,861m/25,790 feet), Mt. Ama Dablam (6,812 m/ 22,350 ft.), Lobuche (6,119m/20075 ft.), and Mt. Pumori (7,161m) among others.
Enjoy breakfast in Syangboche at an altitude of 3,841m (12,601 ft.). Return to Lukla and then to Kathmandu the same day via helicopter. For a more extended experience in the Everest region along with a helicopter ride over the Khumbu Himalaya, Adventure Club Trek also offers Everest Base Camp Heli Trek-11 Days and Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Tour by Heli-8 Days.
Spending only around five minutes in Kala Patthar will prevent us from getting altitude sickness. Our helicopter will be on stand-by at. Therefore, it is technically impossible to spend more than the allocated time.
