Why is Everest Base Camp Trek By Helicopter popular?
On this trip, we ensure that most of the best viewpoints will be covered such as Kalapatthar, Namche Viewpoint, Chukkung, Tengboche, Pangboche. There are very few viewpoints on this trek where we can see the clear image of the iconic Peak, Everest. This trek is not just about the Himalayas but to experience the culture of Sherpa People and their hospitality. Oldest High Mountains Monastery is another highlight of this trek, especially at Tengboche and Pangboche Monastery where we can see Monks and chants every morning and evening.
Everest Region or Sagarmatha National Park is also a home of Snow Leopard, Himalayan Goats, Musk Deer, Yaks, and also a Nepali National Bird, Daphne (Himalayan monal). Subalpine jungle, beautiful Rhododendron flowers, Khumbu Glaciers, Icefall, crystal lakes, amazing Landscapes, and the snowy peaks around just makes you feel like you are at the dreaming place.
Many people think and understand that Trekking to Everest Base Camp is technical and you need to climb Everest! No, it’s not ! Trekking to Everest Base camp is not climbing and it’s not technical work. Because of elevation, thin air, and the climate, it’s quite hard but those who have done it, are never disappointed.
Everest Base Camp Trek with a return back by helicopter tour is a bit costly than a normal trek because we need a charter helicopter. For budget travelers, it might not be affordable but on a group trip, the price can be adjustable. People love to fly back because while flying back, you can see all the Khumbu Himalayas which are amazing and you don't need to walk the same way back to Lukla.
