Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return in 12 Days

Every adventure travelers and trekkers wish to stand at the Base Camp of mt. Everest, the world's top adventure destination. Unfortunately many can't afford more than two weeks. Mountain Monarch has specially designed this 12 days Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return Heli from arrival to departure ex. Kathmandu with Helicopter Out ensuring the safety and comfort on top priority. Having the chartered helicopter fly out to Kathmandu one does not need to worry about trekking out the same way to Lukla. Besides that not to worry about the Lukla flight cancellation due to the unpredictable Himalayan weather. Most Importantly our EBC Heli TREK itinerary is carefully designed to ensure enough time for proper acclimatization and exploration.

We take an exciting flight to Lukla to start the Everest base camp helicopter trek. Further, we hike to Namche where we spend 2 nights on the proper acclimation. We witness and explore the vastness of Thyangboche monastery before we head to Dingboche. The village nestles in the sunny valley facing the most beautiful Amadablam peak. Not to mention a great place to spend two nights to adjust the thinner oxygen level before we climb up above 5000 meters.

The alpine landscape becomes more rugged as we climb above the tree line on moraines to Gorak Shep via Lobuche. The walk to EBC over the Khumbu glacier moraines can be challenging but surely a great rewarding effort for the sense of achievement. If you have ever longed to set eyes on the highest Himalayan panorama and stunning glaciers around you, the view from Kalapathar will stay with you forever. Ultimately we spend a night at Pheriche before taking the chartered helicopter return flight back to Kathmandu. No doubt one of the most scenic Heli rides amidst the spectacular valleys and stunning high peaks in the Himalayas. A great experience of a lifetime never to be forgotten.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Trek with Style and Comfort

We do stay at a deluxe hotel in Kathmandu and comfortable lodges having attached bathrooms at most places are available on the EBC Heli trek. We make sure to have a medical trained experienced trek leader with safety back up like an Oxygen tank and medical box. Furthermore our signature responsible trekking policy of 01 TREKKER:01 PORTER.This short 12 days EBC trek with Heli return suites best for family and group of friends who have less than two weeks to complete the journey to the base camp of mt. Everest.

If you have time and less budget, we recommend you to join on 16 Days Everest Base Camp Trek or the ultimate high passes trekking called Three Pass Trek or expedition-style trek to climbing adventure to Mera Peak Climbing in Everest region of Nepal.
