12 Days Everest Base Camp Deluxe Trek With Helicopter Ride is one of the best trekking in Nepal. Leaving the arrival and departure day, we spent 12 days in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Taking trekkers up to the base camp of Mt. Everest and the altitude of 5,545m (Kala Patthar), this trek allows trekkers to explore and enjoy the natural and cultural magnificence of the Khumbu region en route to the base camp of Everest. Apart from the views of some of the major towering peaks of the world including Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Cho Oyu, trekkers also get a chance to explore the attractions of the Sagarmatha National Park. These attractions in the area are beautifully backed up by the perfect culture, lifestyle, and sincere hospitality of the Sherpa people living in the region.

This hike to the Base Camp of Everest begins with 35 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, we walk up to the base camp and retrace the same path to Lukla to fly back to Kathmandu. Our 12 days Everest Base Camp Trekking package includes full board during the trek and bed and breakfast before and after the trek. Accommodation is arranged in local lodges and guest houses managed by local people that provide basic amenities, bed, breakfast, and dinner. The lunch is ordered from a tea house menu. Both typical Nepali and western food are served during the trek. Trekkers can also enjoy a free map with this package. This 12-day package also ensures necessary acclimatization before ascending the height.

Nevertheless, the packages offered by Amigo Treks and Expedition are fully customizable. All customized packages guarantee 100% departure date and flat rates with a special group discount. Though the difficulty level is comparatively high, and physically fit and mentally determined person can attempt this trek. Moreover, the best season to plan this trek is spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) for supportive weather, temperature, visibility, and smooth trail.

The trip starts with a 30-35 minute flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. From Lukla, up till the base camp is on foot. If you are looking to spend more splendid days in Nepal go for Everest Three High Passes Trek for 19 days or even Everest Base Camp Trek with Gokyo Lake and Chola Pass for 18 days.

This trip is available every day from 15th March - to 20th May and 1st Oct-20th Dec  with a minimum of 2 pax

Our Attempt to avoid Altitude Sickness

(“Climb High, Sleep Low” is the rule one needs to follow, to avoid altitude sickness. Therefore, apart from 2 days of acclimatization, at Namche and Dingboche, to aid the acclimatization process, we hike a little higher than our overnight stop and get down for overnight rest.)   

Note:
Although we try to depart on the scheduled itinerary, we cannot promise to guarantee fixed departure only in case of flight cancellation, or delays. Thus, we request you to plan out extra few days in case the weather does not stay in our favor.  Since your safety is our uttermost priority, we also request you to follow your team leaders and your guides’ since they are trained and experienced in this particular area. We can arrange to occupy your day with adventures and exploration activities to utilize the day. 
The weather condition in the Himalayas is also subject to change which can be an obstruction during your travels. Since obstacles are unpredictable, Amigo Treks & Expedition facilitates our customers to arrange helicopter service if needed (at extra cost). We can arrange helicopter service during the time of flight delays/cancellations and personal preferences.  Since helicopters can fly in arduous circumstances compared to airplanes.
