As you land at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you'll be welcomed by one of our staff and then escorted to the hotel. Our journey initiates with a thrilling 35-minute flight to Lukla. Upon landing, your journey to the Everest Base Camp on foot begins. As you walk through Sagarmatha National Park, you'll reach your first stop, Monjo village, for an overnight stay.
Moving forward, you'll walk along the Dudh Koshi River and make your way toward Namche Bazar. You'll spend one more day here to let your body adjust to high altitude. On this day, you'll hike up to the Everest View Hotel and enjoy the 360° views of the surrounding white giants.
After spending nights at popular Sherpa settlements like Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep, you'll get to stand at the foothills of the mighty Everest. Subsequently, you'll hike to the famous viewpoint of Kala Pathar early in the morning to see the majestic sunrise over the Himalayas.
Now, you'll hike back to Gorakshep, where your helicopter ride awaits you. Instead of walking back to Luka and catching a regular flight, you'll conclude the Luxury Everest Base Camp Heli Trek with a helicopter ride back to Kathmandu. You'll bid the Himalayas goodbye in style and enjoy the aerial view of the Khumbu region's remote terrains, valleys, and mountains.
As the name suggests, the Luxury Everest Base Camp Heli Trek offers the comfort of staying in the best/most luxurious hotels, guesthouses, and lodges. But the question is, does it offer the same comfort throughout the whole trek?
Before clearing this question, here’s a small note: Even though the Everest Region is one the most popular regions in Nepal. It is not the most developed one. Remoteness is one of the major highlights of trekking in this region. It allows you to witness the undisturbed nature and experience the true mountain lifestyle.
Now, coming back, the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek package offers a two-night stay in the 5-star hotel in Kathmandu upon your arrival and at the end of the trip. It also offers a three-night stay in luxurious lodges in Namche Bazar and Phakding.
Apart from these places, as the areas are not developed enough, you’ll be accommodated in normal but the best guest houses in the area for the rest of the journey.
