Day Tour of Everest Base Camp in Helicopter is a great way to experience Everest in just one day. We
begin our helicopter tour from Kathmandu and fly towards the east to Lukla which is a beautiful Sherpa
village. From here we fly over the Everest Base Camp which is one of the most popular trekking
destinations in the world. From our helicopter, we also admire great views of the Khumbu Glacier which
is ideally located between Mt. Everest and the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. Next, we stop at Kalapathhar for the
grandest views of the world’s highest mountain and it’s neighboring Himalayas. Then we fly to
Syangboche and spend around twenty minutes at a hotel for breakfast while also admiring the beautiful
Himalayan vista. We fly back to Lukla for fueling and return to Kathmandu and end our amazing
helicopter day tour of Everest. The entire Day Tour of Everest Base Camp in Helicopter gives us a
unique opportunity to not just reach the base camp of Everest, the highest mountain on Earth but get the
best aerial views of Everest and neighbouring Himalayas on an exclusive helicopter flight.

The best time to take this trip is from September to April. Although spring and autumn are Nepal's
popular tourist seasons, a helicopter day trip in the winter guarantees equally clear views that will have
you mesmerized. However, being the monsoon season the months of June, July and August are not recommended.
