Description


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 a 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 the Tibetan market, mountain views like Thamserku and other peaks and also popular for Hotel Everest View from where one can witness the entire Everest panorama. The trek then takes you to Tengboche from where we can experience the 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.Everest Heli Trek finally takes us to Kalapatthar and Everest Base Camp which are both popular vantage points in the Everest region for breathtaking mountain views. A climb to Kalapatthar offers us the most stunning view of Everest massif. Then we head to Everest Base Camp for more splendid views of mountain peaks. Now, we fly by Heli around the mountain panorama in the Everest region once again from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu. In this trekking, we are benefited in two ways: one is the trekkers can have an experience of adventure trekking to Everest Base Camp and the other is the experience of flying above the top of the world, Mt. Everest.

Children as young as 7 and adults over 65 have all done this trek. Steep ascents and descents and rocky paths may not be suitable for you if you have some knee problems or weak ankles. And it would be better to get a doctor consultation before heading on to this trek. If you are fit and also have some experience of trekking at high altitude then you are fit enough to do the Everest Region trek.

The best season for the Everest Region trek is from September to early December when there is clear weather. Also, during the March and May, the flowers are out and visibility is clear.

The route is relatively danger-free as the path has been widened in many places making it easier for the trekkers. The main problem is when people get Altitude sickness. Other than that, common injuries that people may face are twisted ankles and sprains. To cope with that we hire experienced guides and experts to tag along with your journey.

Of course, now the Everest Region trek has cell coverage. For charging the mobile, you should better pack some Power Banks. Some tea houses also have the facility of charging ports.

Many People having families with children have completed this trek. But it is unwise to take children who don’t obey their parents or can’t talk properly about the early symptoms of altitude sickness.

Yes, it would be wise if you brought some dry foods, power snack bars with you since the buying snacks on the trail can be pretty expensive.

The accommodations are quite nice considering the elevation. During the peak time, our guide will help in pre-booking of your rooms.

In the lower villages, you can find tea houses with 24/7 power. But as the elevation goes higher, teahouses are depended on solar only so, you might not have the chance to charge your mobile. So, we suggest you carry lightweight solar power banks.

Drinking at least 4 liters of water a day is a must for this trek. So, you should purify all your drinking water with purifying tablets. And it is better to carry a thermos flask for boiling water which is provided to you in tea houses.

During these months the skies are clear and you can have a splendid panorama view of mountains. If you are a snow lover, then this might be the chance for you to experience it first-hand.

Yes, you should let us know beforehand since we need to adjust the itinerary according to your needs. Mostly our packages are flexible so you should not worry about getting the trek extended.

Since June, July and August fall during the Monsoon Season, the paths are slippery and less relevant for hiking. The skies may not be clear, but you can find beautiful flora and fauna during the trek
