Kathmandu -> Lukla -> Phakding -> Namche Bazaar -> Tengboche -> Dingboche -> Lobuche -> Gorakshep -> Everest Base Camp -> Gorakshep -> Kathmandu
Everest base camp helicopter fly-out trek starts from Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, we move towards Lukla with a Heli ride that will take around 45 minutes to complete. Then, we trek from Lukla to Phakding. It will take about 3 to 4 hours to reach Phakding from Lukla. Following this footstep, we will move from Phakding to Namche Bazaar covering a distance within a 6 to 7 hours time period. We will stay overnight at Namche Bazaar and spend the next day here as an acclimatization day.
On a forthcoming day, we will leave Namche Bazaar and head towards Tengboche passing through the nice yet off-beat trail. It will take around 5 to 6 hours to complete the distance. From Tengboche, we will trek to Dingboche for around 5 to 6 hours and halt for the day. The next day, we will walk further from Dingboche to Lobuche covering the trekking trail distance in around 4 to 5 hours. The following day, we conquer Everest base camp passing through Gorakshep, spend some time there, and return back to Gorakshep. The walking time for this day remains around 3 to 5 hours.
Finally, on the last day, the helicopter flight will pick us up from Gorakshep, and land us at Kathmandu airport.

Everest Base Camp stands at an elevation of 5,380 meters (17,600 feet) in the heart of the Himalayan landscape. It is the base camp of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest (8,848 meters/29,029 feet). So, climbing on it is not a cup of tea. It comprises lots of walking preparation, health checkups, and mainly willpower.
To rectify the regular trekking route, a return helicopter ride is incorporated with it. It makes the arrival to Lukla (trek starting point) and departure from Gorakshep (trek ending point) easier and calm. Furthermore, traveling to base camp by means of Heli flight instead of regular flights can be the safest opportunity to reach Everest. It is because of the safe and sound landing that the helicopter provides. 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. Meanwhile, the visibility level of the Heli is higher which lets it fly over even in less visibility when the weather is not favorable.
9 days Everest base camp trek and fly back by helicopter (Everest flyout trek) delivers the views of magnificence of mountain peaks and ranges, green and brown hills, snowy landscape, rivers, lakes, glaciers, icefalls, cascades, and exotic flora and fauna in the contrasting time period. Likewise, the memorial of Everest expeditors and Sherpa, meet and chit-chat with local residents about their culture, tradition, lifestyle, and ethics, prayer walls, monasteries and Chortens, the forest of pine, rhododendron, and oak, etc. worth the dedicated time and endeavor.
