Kala Patthar(EBC) Heli Tour

This unforgettable Heli tour takes you as close to Mt. Everest as you can reach in a day. The flight takes off from Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport at 7 AM. The helicopter flies east, parallel to the Himalayan range. A breathtaking landscape unfolds as your pilot glides the helicopter above picturesque Sherpa mountain villages, gompas (monasteries), emerald mountain lakes and a snowy expanse of Himalayan peaks and glaciers. KhumbuHimal, AmaDablam, Kantega, Nuptse, Lhotse, Pumori and Mt. Everest are some of the peaks you will get to see up close. If you take this flight during the climbing season, you may also spy colourful-tented camps of expedition groups on the mountains. There will be a brief stopover (5-7mins) at Kala Patthar – 5,545m (the site of the ‘World’s Highest Cabinet Meeting’) for you to take pictures. From Kala Patthar, one can get the closest view of Mount Everest. At 8:45 AM, you will be having breakfast at the World’s Highest Resort Kongde Resort. By 9:15 AM, you will board the helicopter and fly back to Kathmandu. The stopover at Kala Patthar is subject to weather conditions. We may have to forego the visit at Kala Patthar if bad weather prevails. In that case, we will stop at Shyangboche (the drop-zone World’s Highest Skydiving- Everest Skydive)
