Overview of 11 days Everest Helicopter Trekking

11-day Everest Helicopter Trekking starts from the domestic airport of Kathmandu, Nepal. Amongst the various options you can choose on your trek is the Helicopter Trekking in Everest. This trip entails piercing through the Sherpa villages of the Everest region and returning to Kathmandu, the capital city, on a thrilling ride in an AS350 B3 Helicopter.

The trip is as exciting and amusing as it sounds. The Everest Trek, on your ascent, takes the classic route through small Sherpa hamlets along the way up until the base camp of Mount Everest. However, your return journey will include comfortable and scenic travel on a passenger chopper waiting for you at Gorak Shep.

Claimed to be one of the best treks in Nepal, EBC Trek portrays a wide variety of offerings for trekkers. Your pathway ventures through the sparsely settled Sherpa villages of Lukla, Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorakshep before reaching the ultimate rugged space at the base of mighty Everest.

The villages along the trail have typical wooden houses inhabited mainly by the Sherpas. Their unique blend of Tibetan-Buddhist culture and tradition might be another point of interest for you. These people are highly appreciated globally for their might and daring capabilities in mountain climbing.

The utmost value offered by EBC Helicopter Trekking is its excellent geographical characteristics. The region falls within the vicinity of Sagarmatha National Park that houses an abundance of flora and fauna alongside some of the mightiest massifs in the world: Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Lhotse(8516m), Mt.Lhotse Sar(8383m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6812m), Mt. Nuptse(7861m), Mt. Khumbutse(6,665m)

There have been occasional sightings of Mountain Tahr, Snow Leopards, and Himalayan Black Bear within the national park area, which makes it even more enjoyable.

The trail follows through lush Rhododendron, Juniper, and Birch forests, which is evident enough to live up to the hype of Everest’s popularity.

Are you ready for the thrill of your life? The EBC Helicopter Trekking experience is one of the most awe-inspiring and exhilarating journeys you’ll ever embark on! Picture yourself beneath the tallest structure on the earth, surrounded by the breathtaking amusement of the Nepalese Himalayan Mountains.

With every meter of altitude gained during the trek, you will be rewarded by the stunning landscapes, dramatic peaks, and the warm, welcoming culture of the Sherpa people. Get ready to challenge yourself, as the EBC Trek will test your limits and reward you with a sense of accomplishment that you’ll cherish forever!

Your safe journey and utmost enjoyment are the primary concerns of Boundless Adventures, which is why we meticulously plan your treks to ensure a smooth and unforgettable adventure.

Everest Trekking returning by Helicopter
Everest Helicopter trekking image

Everest Base Camp helicopter trekking begins at the domestic airport of Kathmandu. It takes 45 minutes to fly by plane to the tiny airstrip of Lukla after the Himalayan flight from Kathmandu. Heading through the Sherpa villages and exploring their spiritual part of life is impressive. Sagarmatha National Park begins on the second day of walking, which is rich in flora and fauna.

The cultural prosperity around Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, Pangboche, and Tengboche is impressive and increases the charm of the breathtaking snow-capped Himalayas, including Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Nupshe.

However, Acclimatization is essential to this adventurous trek to Everest by Helicopter and deals with Acute Mountain Sickness. Everest base camp and Kalapathar are the important destinations of the trip.

After exploring the Everest tour, fly back to Kathmandu by helicopter from the heart of the Khumbu region- Gorakshep. (Gorakshep is the last camp of the trip)


Everest Helicopter Trekking Cost

The 11-day Everest helicopter cost is reasonable. As it is not a whole tour around the Everest region by helicopter, instead, you’ll return by helicopter from Gorakshep after a beautiful trek, so the price is lower. However, the exact cost of Everest helicopter trekking varies depending on different factors. 

One major factor that changes the Everest Helicopter trekking cost is whether you are in a group or solo. If you are in a group, trekking and helicopter flights cost less. The more you are in a group, the more you’ll get a discount. Boundless Adventure is offering a group discount for 11 days of helicopter trekking cost. However, if you are solo, we can also manage you with other teams if you are comfortable. 

Still, we suggest contacting us if you plan to trek the Everest helicopter. You can message us on WhatsApp at +977 9851033819; we are always ready to assist you. Furthermore, we’ll try to minimize costs for you.

Essential Information - 11 days Everest Helicopter Trekking

Everest Helicopter Trek Difficulty

The Everest Helicopter Trek is quite challenging compared to other significant treks in Nepal. It becomes increasingly difficult for travelers as they ascend above 4000 meters, particularly beyond Tengboche. As trekkers progress, the air at higher altitudes becomes thinner, resulting in slower movement.

This Trek involves traversing through semi-arid terrain high up in the Himalayas, culminating at one of Nepal’s most prominent trekking points, Kalapathhar Peak (5555m), which can be strenuous and challenging for those with limited high-altitude trekking experience.

Optimal physical fitness and endurance are required for this Trek. Additionally, the Everest region is one of the most isolated regions of Nepal, with narrow, rocky, and uneven trails leading to EBC, making it challenging to walk on.


Best Time For a Trip to Everest by Helicopter

The weather pattern inside the Nepalese territory has been classified into four different seasons: Autumn(September- November), Spring (March-May), Summer (June-August), and Winter ( December – February).

Nepalese highland sits on a climatic belt providing various climatic patterns, including Sub-Alpine, Tropical, Sub-Tropical, and Tundra. The overall climatic context is mildly temperate, while occasional rain showers occur across the boundary.

As considered by many, the Autumn and Spring months portray the best period for Everest Helicopter Trekking. The weather window from September to November and March to May is transparent with undisturbed sightings of the Himalayan Mountains.

High Himalaya’s temperature ranges from 19.5°C upper limit to -14°C lower limit throughout the autumn; spring month’s temperature ranges from 24°C UL to -13°C LL. This moderate temperature variation makes these months the best time for trekking to Everest.

Besides spring and autumn, summer may be a suitable time for trekking to Everest Base camp. Everest region lies in a rain-shadow area, making it dry even during the Monsoon period. The stretch above Namche Bazaar receives little to no rain during the summer. However, the monsoon clouds may disrupt the view of Everest Vista repeatedly. Also, due to the weather conditions, there are several flight delays and postpones during summer.


Physical Conditions

The trip to Everest Base Camp is a one-of-a-kind trek with lots of adventurous travel along the foothills of the Nepalese Himalayan Belt. The EBC Trek requires you to walk on a rugged, uneven terrain and remote landscape that reaches up to the elevation of Kalapatthar is 5555 meters from sea level. Similarly, a height beyond 3000 meters is considered an AMS-prone zone for the lowered oxygen level in the air.

However, the journey has been undertaken by people with varied characteristics, from age, physical fitness, and experience. While there might be some difficulty, especially after your traverse beyond Tengboche, with proper acclimatization and a steady walking pace, this adventure is perfectly doable for beginners too.

We advise you to properly break into your gear (Shoes, Rucksack, and other Apparel) before embarking on the Trek. You should also check with your doctor for any issues before high altitude traverses to Everest. Also, being in perfect fitness condition is an additional advantage for the Trek.


Lodging at the Trek to Everest by Helicopter

The EBC Helicopter Trekking route passes via charming hamlets in the Sagarmatha region. Sherpa communities reside permanently in these villages, offering rooms and other amenities in their teahouses. The accommodation services on the Trek are superficial and need more modern amenities.

When you traverse higher than Tengboche, finding an attached bathroom becomes challenging in your mountain lodge. Instead, the guests in the mountain lodges share the same bathroom in the areas beyond Tengboche. That being said, several lodges provide an attached bathroom with their rooms, but such accommodation options are provided to our luxury clients who opt for Everest Luxury Trek.

The mountain lodges in EBC Trek have basic amenities, and every room has two twin beds with foam pads, pillows, and blankets. If the provided bedding is not warm enough, you may ask for additional blankets with your guide, and they will happily help you out. We recommend renting a sleeping bag in Kathmandu for your Everest Trek in case it gets colder at night.

During your journey to Everest Base Camp, the mountain lodges are equipped with a traditional heating system to keep the guests warm. A stove, usually called Bukhara Stove, is a conventional Tibetan-type stove set up in the hotel’s dining area.

Most mountain lodges will have a power source from solar panels, and you can charge your electronic devices. Please note that Hot Shower and charging your electrical devices require additional payments not included in the package. Also, Type C adapters are incompatible with power sockets in the Everest area, so make sure to buy compatible ones before your Trek.


Meals in EBC Trek by Helicopter

While undertaking the EBC Helicopter Trip, you will find limited food options as you reside in teahouses. The areas at higher elevations lack road access, and all essentials are transported by Yaks or helicopters. On your Trek, there are various food options on the menu for you to choose from, but we suggest you take the local dishes available for hygiene reasons. Similarly, We’ll provide you with Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner during the trek.

Popularly savored food while trekking Everest Himalaya is traditional Nepali local cuisines, a mixture of high-calorie diet items alongside taste and spices. Similarly, Alternative food items you can opt to have are potatoes, noodles, soup, pasta, french fries, and even other Western dishes like pizza, steak, and burgers. As you ascend higher, your food options will be limited. Everest Region trekking is filled with small German bakeries that you can try out. These small eateries provide a range of bakery items to eat.


Drinking Water

For most of your Trek, teahouses in the route can supply drinking water. We advise you to drink at least 3000-4000 ml water daily to hydrate yourself along the journey. There is mineral water available in shops along the journey too. Also, you can choose from multiple alternatives for your hydration needs during the Trek.

Boiling water: Ask your teahouse owner for hot boiled water before you depart from the stopover. The tea houses will provide boiled and drinkable water from nearby streams.


Filtration System Bottle

There are filtration system-enabled bottles available in the market these days. Filtration straws effectively remove more than 90% of bacteria from the water. You can’t get such bottles in Nepal but you must bring them.
Fill your bottle with any nearby sources and get going, as this filtration system can filter out bacteria of up to 5 microns.


Chlorine or Iodine Tablets

Bacteria or Medical tablets are another effective way to sanitize water to make it drink worthy of bacteria. Such tablets dissolve with natural water and let it dissolve for half an hour. It is an easy method to ensure that you have safe drinking water. Similarly, You can get such tablets and drops in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Thank you, Mr. Dambar Khadka, for a beautiful journey combining trekking and helicopter tours in the Everest region. The trip was well-managed with excellent arrangements, and I’m glad everything was on time. My wife and I had a great time and created an unforgettable experience.

We were planning for the whole trek, but due to the time limit, we needed clarification; still, Mr. Dambar suggested this trip, and we are glad to share that we were okay with choosing the Everest helicopter trekking. The satisfaction of reaching Everest Base Camp in such a short time and returning through the comfort zone of a helicopter will always be in our hearts. Once again, Thank you to the entire team of Boundless Adventure for your excellent service.

Flying over the breathtaking Khumbu

I had an unforgettable experience with Everest helicopter trekking. I will always cherish the memory of flying over the breathtaking Khumbu region after an adventurous trekking journey. It was worth it.

I enjoyed trekking and helicopter tour experiences in one package while exploring the Everest region. The trip was well-organized with a knowledgeable guide who was my travel partner and never let me feel alone. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey from start to finish.

I trekked to Everest Base Camp from Lukla Airport, explored Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar, and then returned to Kathmandu by helicopter. Based on my friend’s recommendation, I chose Boundless Adventure for my trip and am glad I did. They provided me with top-notch service. I will select Adventure Boundless again for my future trips to Nepal.
