Overview

Everest Helicopter Tour – Getting to Mount Everest is on the bucket list of every single traveler. However, some dreams are harder to achieve than others. Some travellers may not be able to trek, or do not have the required stamina to hike to Everest.

To help these travellers fulfil their dreams, Eyes on Nepal now operates the Everest Helicopter Tour!

Everest Helicopter Tour allows everyone, even those without physical fitness, to view Mt. Everest, world’s highest mountain without having to trek. The journey begins from Kathmandu towards the Everest Region, as you fly over the towns of Lukla, Namche,  Tyangboche, Gokyo, and finally land at Kalapathar at an elevation of 5550m.

From Kalapathar, one can see Mt. Everest up, close and personal. You will fly back to Syangboche for a breakfast at Everest View Hotel, the highest mountain in the world before heading back  to Kathmandu.

Mount Everest Helicopter Tour costs about USD1200 per pax.

Note: If there are more than 3 pax on board the helicopter, we will need to make one more stop at Periche. You will feel colder here because of the late sunrise, due to the tall peaks and mountains blocking the sun.

We will be spending about 10 minutes here owing to the high altitude, and the need to keep the engine running (*Depends upon temperature). Also, it will be difficult to acclimatise in high altitude for longer periods of time. Famous mountains such as Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Lhotse, Everest, and many more can be easily seen along this route.
