Mount Everest Helicopter Tour

   1 Days    Trip Id (001-A-118)

Your visit to Nepal remains incomplete, if you miss a chance to get closer to the mighty Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world. Normally, getting to the Everest Base Camp requires at least 12 days, which might not be possible for every traveler travelling to Nepal. Present health condition, physical fitness level and time might come in the way as well. Therefore, taking these obstructions into account, Amigo Treks and Expedition would like to offer the Everest Helicopter Tour package; a perfect solution to every  kind of traveler, to help fulfill their wish to see and get closer to Mt. Everest.  

The Everest Helicopter Tour is probably one of the most exciting tour in the world. This tour in Nepal takes you from your hotel in Kathmandu to the Mt. Everest Base Camp and back in just 4 hours. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to admire the beauty of the Mt. Everest from the very famous viewpoint and the highest point of Everest base camp trekking, Kala Patthar, in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Along with the Mt. Everest (8,848m), this tour will also allow you to enjoy  the mesmerizing  view of a series of glorious mountains – Gauri Shanker, Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Dorje Lakpa, Shisa Pangma, Melung Tse, Jugal, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Lhotse and Makalu and the astounding hills, rivers, glaciers, lakes, the settlement of Sherpa people and most part of the Khumbu region. You will also get a chance to have breakfast in the Khumbu region of Nepal.   

Amigo Treks and Expedition’s the Everest Helicopter Tour package includes helicopter ride as per the itinerary, private pick up and drop off service from and to the hotel in Kathmandu, and airport departure tax. If you are looking for additional services, we can definitely make the arrangement (extra charges applicable). We also make sure that the helicopters are equipped with a set of Oxygen system consisting of 4-5 liter cylinder of mountaineering oxygen, fitted with a regulator and hi-tech top-out mask, to provide instant help in case of emergencies.

I had a fantastic experience


I travel from the US to India once or twice a year for work, and sometimes I will take a short vacation from India to an area I would not normally go to.  This past October I decided I would travel to Nepal for a few days of vacation after concluding my work in Bangalore.  I decided I wanted to see some of the Himalayas, including the Everest region if possible.  An internet search showed the possibility of an Everest Base Camp helicopter tour, which sounded perfect for a short 4-day trip to Nepal.  I contacted about 10 different trekking and touring companies, but Amigo Trekking was one of only about 3-4 places that responded back to my inquiry.  Right away, Niti Sharma was very helpful, explaining what the possibilities were for me and my time constraints.  When I stated to her (and the others) that the original price was too high for me, she was the only one who came back with an alternative idea that also was actually better, as the weather in Lukla is unreliable and I would need to spend more time out there than I originally anticipated.  She suggested that instead of me taking a helicopter from Kathmandu and back in one day that I fly to Lukla on a small plane, stay the night in Lukla, then return the next day to Kathmandu.  This gave me a much larger window to fly the helicopter on the Everest tour around any possible weather issues that might arise.  And this alternative also met my price budget better at the same time, so I decided to go with it.  She was totally correct!  In the end, all aspects of the trip were great and I saw everything I wanted to see (and more - I loved the experience of flying in and out of Lukla on a plane), but I did need the extra day due to rapidly changing weather conditions in Lukla.  So in the end, I would highly recommend working with Niti at Amigo Trekking for a trip like this one.  She designed the perfect 2-day trip within my budget, all arrangements were correctly made, and I had a fantastic experience that I will never forget.  Thanks Niti and Amigo

unforgettable experience


We did Everest Base Camp helicopter tour on September 2017. It was very unforgettable experience and wonderful trip to the base camp at very short time. The pilots & other staff were friendly and the service was great. We recommend Amigo Treks & Expedition for Helicopter Tour.
