What is the Luxury Helicopter Everest Base Camp Trek & what makes it luxury?

The Luxury Helicopter Everest Base Camp Trek is Nepal Trekking Tours' most valuable, shortest, and most luxurious trekking package.The ultimate aim of designing such a luxury trekking package is to guide you and your family to a successful summit of Mount Everest base camp and Kala Patthar trek—the world's most famous hiking.

During the whole trek of 12 days, you will be warmly welcomed by Nepal’s top-class luxury hotels in Kathmandu and the best luxury lodges in the Everest region. You will follow the same itinerary and stay in the highest quality trekking lodges as on our 15-day Luxury Everest base camp trek, such as Yeti mountain home and the best available lodges. However, to save your time and energy after visiting both Everest base camp and Kala Patthar, you may find it a comfortable option to return to Kathmandu. Hence, you will fly back to Lukla by helicopter to save a few days and energy to give yourself the best comfort during the whole journey. This is the most luxurious way to fulfill your dream of trekking or hiking to the base camp and Kala Patthar, the world's highest peak.

Is this trekking for me? How difficult is the Luxury Helicopter Everest base camp trek?

The highest altitude of this trek is Kala Patthar, 5644m, and the second highest altitude on this trip is 5364m, Everest base camp. The trek above the 5000m altitude is rated as a demanding trek, but it is not a really challenging one. This is the shortest trekking itinerary; however, there are two acclimatization days at an altitude of 3440m and 4300m in our itinerary, which are fully helpful to prevent unnecessary AMS. Your previous trekking experience is an advantage for this trek; however, all newer trekkers are welcome to participate.All you need to be is physically fit and ready to trek for a minimum of 4 hours to a maximum of 6-7 hours.

The best time to trek to Everest base camp by luxury helicopter:

The best months for this luxury trekking for the best weather are October, November and December. The second-best month in the spring season is March. April and May. The monsoon season starts in Nepal in mid-June and ends by mid-September, so during these 3 months there is not great weather. The season begins in September, so there are fewer hikers on the trail.

Hello Pasang,

Thanks for your email after our return home. We reached home and would like to thank you a lot for all the  best service you have provided during our Nepal trip. We had a awesome vacation in Nepal. Every little service was handled well. Your guide, Rinji, is perfect and the porter is very helpful. The lodges you have booked are very nice. The helicopter ride back after the trek was enjoyable and it was nice to return to Lukla by helicopter rather than walk back the same route.

Thanks for all your great service. It was a great trip.

Sincerely,

Robert
