Everest Base Camp Premium Heli Trek

duration: 12 days

difficulty: Easy

group size: 10

experience: Beginner


This trek offers a wonderful combination of culture, nature and landscape into an experience of a lifetime. But the rewards of this trek must be earned as it climbs over 20,000 ft. and loses over 7,000 ft. of elevation over 75+ miles over the course of the trek, at high altitudes.  

On this version of the Everest Base Camp trek, you can accelerate your descent back by taking a helicopter from Gorakshep, with an extra day in Kathmandu built into the itinerary to allow for any helicopter flight changes and cancellations due to unfavorable conditions. Further, the accommodation is upscale with 5-star hotels and premium tea houses wherever possible.  

Trip highlights:  

1. Trekking to the base of the world's tallest mountain  

2. Taking in sweeping views some of world's tallest peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori  

3. Getting a close look at the Khumbu Glacier, world’s highest glacier  

4. Opportunity to trek up to Kalapathar, one of the most beautiful viewpoints in the region with views of 8000 meter peaks like Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu  

5. A visit to one of the oldest and biggest Buddhist monasteries, Tengboche monastery  

6. Spending a day at Namche Bazar, the Sherpa capital  

7. Experiencing the local culture and cuisine at the tea houses along your trek
