Announcing the addition of scenic helicopter ride to Everest or Annapurna Base Camp.
We are pleased to offer an OPTIONAL helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp on Day 2, October 24th.
Those participating in the tour will depart Kathmandu airport via helicopter just after sunrise towards the Khumbu, and land in the Sherpa village of Syangboche (3780m), for breakfast with a view of Mt. Everest. Following breakfast, passengers will be shuttled 2-3 at a time for a landing at Kalapattar, at the base of Mt. Everest.
Mt. Everest (8848m) is located to the east of Kathmandu and is flanked by two other peaks over 8000m: Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,210 m). In addition to these three tall peaks, there are other relatively small peaks surrounding them: Pumori (7,561 m), Mt. Amadablam (6,856 m), Mera peak (6,654 m), Cholaste (6,440 m), Lobuche (6,119 m), Island peak (6,173 m), and Kwangde (6,011 m). The Everest region is also dotted with several beautiful and scenic villages (Namche, Lukla, Lobuche, Tengboche etc.).
Should weather prohibit the flight on October 24th, we’ll move to Plan B, based from Pokhara, our destination following the visit to Upper Mustang. We’ll have two windows for this scenic flight to Annapurna (8091m), on November 2, following our flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, and November 3, prior to our flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
The flight to Annapurna Base Camp includes views of the stunning Annapurna massif, as well as the equally striking Dhaulagiri (8167m) and the sacred and beautiful Machhapuchre, with a landing at the Poon Hill viewpoint (3910m) prior to the Annapurna Sanctuary (base camp) landing.
Pricing will be dependent upon weight and total passenger load. Please contact us for additional information.
