A day Itinerary:
We will pick you in the morning from Kathmandu hotel and take you to Tribhuvan international airport by our representatives. We will take you to private transportation. After doing check-in we will wait sometime to clear the weather or open airport. As soon as the weather clear we will be getting inside the helicopter to get ready for the journey of the helicopter to base camp. We will be flying through the Bhaktapur city passing the world town and then crossing the Nagarkot villages then to junbensi village. Seeing the Himalayas ranges and villages we will reach Lukla village which is situated at 2800 m elevation. We have Tenzing Hillary airport in this town and we will be landing at the airport.
Lukla airport is also the fueling station for lots of helicopters. The helicopters keep the fuel there and fuel it on the way back. We will also keep some fuel on Lukla airport and ready to fly towards Namche villages passing phakding, monjo, jhorsella and Hillary suspension bridges. On reaching Namche you can see the stunning village on the hill which is the Sherpa capital called Namche village. Just above Namche, there will see sangbochea airport. Big helicopter land there as transportation and some flights too. We will just pass that airport and reach the Everest view hotel. We ill leave two people there, if we have 5 people in flights because helicopter does not carry full people on a high elevation.
After leaving some people we will start flying through the Tengboche Monetary and pangbochea village. We will pass Pheriche village then laubecha village. After that, we will pass gorekshap and then helicopter land on kalapather hill which is around 5380 meters elevation. This hill is known as kalapather viewpoint and its highest point is 5550 meters. This is the same viewpoint that is climbed by Everest base camp trekkers to see Everest close. We will get out of a helicopter to see the Everest and spend some time on kalapather. We will click some stunning pictures and videos here. After spending around half an hour we will fly towards EBC.
