Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour facilitates to the tourists watching Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Lhotse, and Mt. Makalu – all of Earth's 10 tallest peaks!

You can share the fly with your family and friends!

We can take up to 5 passengers to the Everest Base Camp depending on the weight of the travellers. To maintain the weight inside helicopter, we may ask you to provide the weight of you and your fellow travellers.

Sharing a chartered helicopter to the traveller costs less than a solo Traveler so You are kindly requested to be in group so cost comes down and it will not affect any in the journey of other fellow travellers due to more on quantity. It also would like a private helicopter tour since your fellow tourists will complete the ride in the time when you engage for your breakfast.

You will get 10 minutes to take the pictures and videos in Kalapatthar (5545m). These 10 minutes are determined due to high altitude, if you stay any further in this place the risk of altitude sickness increases.

In addition, you also can ask us for hiring a guide to inform/explain you about the location and a professional photographer to take the special photos and videos for you in extra price.

      Flight to Everest Base Camp

      I recently did my trip to Nepal with my colleagues for a few days. We wanted to look over the Everest Base Camp so took a helicopter flight to Everest Base Camp. Flying inside the Himalaya, amazing landing at Kalapatther and witnessing Everest Base Camp closely was a breathtaking experience. It was an awesome trip, we enjoyed it a lot.

      Everest Base Camp With heli fly

      The Everest Base Camp trek with heli fly was well organized from beginning to the end. I received immediate answers to any question I emailed over in forward. The service of the Shepherd Holidays was excellent. Enjoyed a lot and have a lifetime experienced. I would definitely operate this company again.

      Absolutely worth every penny!

      Absolutely worth every penny! The views are nothing short of breathtaking, with Everest as the undeniable highlight. However, the vistas throughout the entire helicopter flight are equally surreal. The service was exceptionally professional, with a steadfast focus on safety. I wholeheartedly recommend this experience!
