Everest Heli Trek is a new flavor of trekking in Nepal merging classical 12 days Everest Heli Trek with Heli flight from Everest Base Camp. As time passes, the interest and preference of the tourists also change. According to meet the preference of the tourists across the globe, we, Team Himalaya has designed special package of a trek to Everest Base Camp blending the experience of Heli flight around the mountain panorama in Everest Region.
Everest Heli Trek, like other classical Everest Base Camp trek, takes us into the lap of the top of the world, Mt. Everest. This will be an exhilarating experience for the trekkers for the lifetime. The incredible mountain giants including Cho Oyu (8,201m), Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Everest (8,848m), holy Pumori and other alluring snow-fed peaks in the skyline. This trek is not only popular for mountain views but also for experiencing various species of alpine flora and fauna in Sagarmatha National Park. We will also get familiarity with hospitable Sherpa people.
Everest Heli Trek commences after we have a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek then ascends to Namche via Phakding and Monjo. Namche is a popular tourist hub and the gateway to Everest region trekking. Namche Bazar is popular for Tibetan market, mountain views like Thamserku and other peaks and also popular for Hotel Everest View from where one can witness entire Everest panorama. The trek then takes you to Tengboche from where we can experience entire Sagarmatha National Park. Sagarmatha National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site which is a shelter to alpine flora and fauna including fir, pine, rhododendron, oak, and wildlife like musk deer, Derow, Ghoral, and Himalayan Thar as well as red-billed chough, Impheyan pheasant, blood pheasant, and yellow-billed chough.
