The trek starts with a short 30-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, where you can see the Himalayan Mountains from above. When they get to Lukla, the visitors will have time to get used to the altitude and look around before starting the moderate 3–4-hour hike to Phakding. The trail follows the Dudh Kosi River and crosses several suspension bridges, including the famous Hillary Suspension Bridge, which gives amazing views of the nearby mountains. When trekkers get close to Phakding, a small town on the riverbanks surrounded by pine trees, they will see Mount Everest for the first time. Trekkers can stay in places like teahouses and lodges and enjoy the local food and generosity. It's best to take it easy and let your body get used to the altitude.

Today we will  head towards Phakding for Namche Bazaar early in the morning, following the Dudh Koshi River and crossing it on suspension bridges several times. The scenery is beautiful, with snow-capped mountains and lush woods. We slowly climbed up to Sagarmatha National Park, where we had to show the permits in order to get them stamped. This park is home to many rare and endangered plants and animals.

After a short break for lunch at Jorsalle, the trail got tougher as we went up steep hills. However, the climb is worth it because of the beautiful views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam. As we got closer to Namche Bazaar, we could see the town situated in the valley with prayer flags blowing in the wind.

Namche Bazaar is a busy town that is the starting point for getting to Everest Base Camp. It has many shops, bars, and lodges for climbers and trekkers. We stayed in a teahouse or lodge  with a great view of the mountains and met the friendly Sherpas. The Sherpas are known for being great mountain climbers.
In the evening, we will walk around town and go  to the Sherpa Museum, where we learn about their history and culture. We stay at the teahouse for the night to get ready for the next part of our heli return trek to Base Camp.

On the 4th day of the Everest Base Camp Fly Out Trek, the group will trek from Namche Bazaar to Tengboche, which is 3,870 meters above sea level, at a moderate pace. The hike will take anywhere from 5 to 6 hours to finish.

The hike will start with a slow downhill walk through the woods on the way to the Dudh Koshi River. When the group gets to Kyangjuma, they can stop for a short break and enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains.

As the trek goes on from Kyangjuma, it goes up to the town of Sanasa, which is a steep and difficult climb. But the beautiful view of the mountains that you'll get as you climb will make it all worth it. After this part of the hike, the trail will begin to level out and lead to the Tengboche Monastery.

Tengboche is a town that sits on top of a hill and is surrounded by beautiful mountain views. It is also home to the Tengboche Monastery, which is one of the most important temples in the Khumbu area. The group will be able to look around the monastery and watch the monks say their daily prayers.

  • AccommodationTea House

On the 5th day of the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Return Trek, the destination for today  is Dingboche, which is about 12 kilometers from Tengboche. It takes about six hours to finish the trek.

The hike starts with a slow drop through a forest of rhododendron and juniper trees. As you go on, you will see several bridges that hang over the Imja Khola river. These bridges add excitement to the trek because you get to cross them and see the beautiful river below.

Snow-covered peaks can be seen in the background as you walk along the trail. As you move along, the trail gets steeper, and you may also notice that the air is making it harder to breathe. The route  also gets rocky, so you have to be careful not to trek on loose rocks.

The scenery changes from lush green forests to bare hillsides, and you will see yaks grazing in the fields. When you get to Dingboche, you'll have finished the 12-kilometer hike and be able to rest for the day.

    On the 6th day of the Everest base camp 9 days heli trek, the group will go to Dingboche and take a day to get used to the altitude. Acclimatization is important for hiking at high altitudes because it lets our bodies get used to the altitude and makes sure that our muscles and systems get enough oxygen.

    Dingboche is a town that is 4,400 meters above sea level. It has beautiful views of mountains like Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Nuptse. The day to get used to the altitude will be a chance to rest, look around the town and the area around it, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    During the day, there will be a brief hike to a nearby hill with stunning views of the valley below. The hike will give us a chance to get some fresh air and enjoy the scenery. There will also be an outing to a local eatery, where we can eat homemade apple pie and other baked goods.

    In the evening, there will be a meeting with the guide to talk about what's going on. The meeting will cover important information about the next day's hike, such as the terrain and the weather, to make sure we are ready for your trek.

    • Highest Altitude4,910m
    • AccommodationTea House

    From Dingboche to Lobuche, which is at an elevation of 4,910m, takes about 4-5 hours, based on the speed at which the group walks and how fit they are. The trail goes mostly uphill and has steep climbs and descents. The scenery is mostly barren and rocky, with small patches of grass and bushes here and there. The views of nearby mountains like Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kangtega are amazing.

    As the group climbs higher, the air gets thinner and the temperature drops. To avoid altitude sickness, they must stay warm and drink water. There are a number of small towns and tea houses where trekkers can rest, get a hot drink or meal, and talk to the locals.

    As you get closer to Lobuche, the terrain gets more difficult, with steep rocky slopes. The last part of the trek goes through a memorial for climbers who passed on Mt. Everest. This is a powerful reminder of how dangerous and difficult mountaineering can be.

    The group finally gets to Lobuche, a small town tucked between the tall hills of the Himalayas. The town has simple places to stay and eat, so hikers can rest and get ready for the next day's hike to Gorak Shep and Everest Base Camp.

    • Duration2-3hr
    • Highest Altitude5,364m
    • AccommodationTea House

    On 8th day, the trek starts with a hearty breakfast at the camp in Lobuche. From there, the trail goes to Gorak Shep, the last village before Everest Base Camp. Along the rocky moraine of the Khumbu Glacier, where the trail goes, there are several memorial stupas for hikers who died on Everest.

    As you get closer to Gorak Shep, the huge peaks of Pumori, Lingtren, and Khumbutse make the area look even more beautiful. The town is at an elevation of 5,180 m and will be your place to rest before the last part of the heli return hike to base camp.

    After a short break at the lodge, one will go to Everest Base Camp, which is the best part of the journey. From Gorak Shep to the base camp, the road is steep and rocky, with icy spots and boulders to get around.

    The difficult hiking will take a few hours, but once you reach the Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 5,364m, the view is amazing. In the background, the beautiful Mount Everest stands tall and proud. You can take some time to enjoy the view and take some pictures before heading back to Gorak Shep.

    The trip back isn't too hard, and you can rest for the day at the lodge in Gorak Shep after a descent back down.

    On the 9th day of the Everest base camp helicopter return trek, the journey starts early in the morning with a hike to Kala Patthar, which is 5,550 meters high. The main objective of this hike is to witness the stunning view of the sunrise from the top of the mountain.

    When you reach the top of Kala Patthar, you will be mesmerized by the view of the snow-covered hills and the valley bathed in golden light. You'll take some time to enjoy the Himalayas' beauty and take a lot of pictures to remember this special time.

      The Everest Base Camp trek with heli return offered me some of the most unforgettable scenery I've ever witnessed. From the lush greenery of the lower valleys to the stark, snowy landscapes of the higher altitudes, every moment was a photo opportunity. The helicopter ride back was the icing on the cake, providing a bird's-eye view of the entire Everest region. I can't recommend this trek enough to nature and adventure enthusiasts.
