Touring by helicopter to view the mighty Mt. Everest is a thrilling way to experience the breathtaking Himalayas. To do this, it is always the best idea to form your own group in order to avoid the high cost of regular helicopter tour. On Nepal Helicopter Tour you fly above the roof of the world on a 4 hour helicopter flight across Mt. Everest and get unique views of areas such as the Khumbu homeland of Nepal’s Himalayan tribes. On your way you can also see the majestic peaks of Ama Dablam, Pumori, Cho Oyu and many other interesting places and peaks.
Your Nepal Helicopter charter tour starts from Kathmandu domestic airport and will be flying above magnificent vistas of the soaring Himalayan peaks. After quick stop at Lukla for refueling you will fly either to the airstrip in Syangboche, located at 12,340 feet (3761 meters) or, if you wish, you can land at Hotel Everest View and enjoy your breakfast there.
From there you can take the helicopter either to Everest Base Camp or head closer to Kalapathar for a brief stop to take photos. After this you will fly back via the route of your choice either to Syangboche, Hotel Everest View or to Lukla and then back to Kathmandu.
