Everest Base Camp Heli Trek fly in fly out (Both-way) is the best regard for the mountain lovers and climbers. As the fully trekking can be marked outdated, this helicopter trek to EBC with both way flying opportunity can be the ideal choice. Because it includes the rectification of dangerous Lukla Airport’s flight landing. Also, trekking back the same (or some different) route to Lukla and then to Kathmandu is not a necessity. Now, the main question may arise as, Why do we prefer EBC Helicopter Trek? The simple answer remains as “it’s better to fly and upsurge than to walk more and loose urge”.

Everest Base Camp Heli trek is an 8 nights 9 days package with both way helicopter facilitating itinerary. As per the itinerary, you will have the helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, then trek to Phakding, Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, Everest Base Camp, Gorakshep, and finally have a helicopter return flight to Kathmandu from Gorakshep (Everest Base Camp). Amid the helicopter fly in and fly out the tour and the trek, you will observe the wonderful mountains, snowy landscape, green hills, cascades, rivers and lakes, glacier, and exotic flora and fauna. Also the memorials of climbers and Sherpas, encounter and chit-chat with local inhabitants about their lifestyle and values, prayer walls, monasteries and chortens, and so forth worth the applied time and effort.

Traveling to Everest Base Camp by Helicopter can be the safest opportunity to reach Everest Region than from airplane flight. It is because of the safe and sound landing that can be provided by the helicopter. The helicopter is smaller and the landing space needed is also lesser in comparison to the airplane. So it won’t need a long runway and other precautions that might be required by airplane flights. It will take around 45 minutes to reach Lukla from Kathmandu. The visibility level of the helicopter is also higher meanwhile of which helicopter can fly over in less visibility too.

Hence, this Heli flight can be organized in possible bad weather too at which airplanes could not fly. The safety level of this trek/tour is also high. As per the short term vision, this helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and Gorakshep to Kathmandu will be most feasible. Because there is the renovation work going on the domestic airport (Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu) which make the Kathmandu – Lukla flight diverted as Kathmandu – Ramechhap – Lukla Flight. This time of reaching Ramechhap from Kathmandu (by road) and then to Lukla (by flight) will be minimized.

Most of the companies are selling one-way EBC helicopter flight to reach Mount Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar. But this is the first itinerary brought to you by Nepal Trek Adventures and Expeditions to facilitate the travelers of Mount Everest.
