Today you need to get up early. Our guide and the driver will pick you up at your hotel in the city center of Kathmandu at the appointed time and escort you to the airport. With the captain's accompanying, you will then enjoy an unforgettable Everest Base camp helicopter tour.

When the helicopter takes off, you will see the panoramic view of Kathmandu Valley and the beautiful Sherpa Villages. As the helicopter continues to fly east, the formidable snow-covered peaks will come into view. The main peaks are Mt. Manaslu, Langtang, and Jugal Himal in the west. Then you will see more eastern Himalaya peaks such as Mt. Gaurishankar, Melung Tse, and Numbur.

The helicopter will land and refuel at Lukla at an altitude of 2,820 meters. Then we will fly over the famous Namche Bazaar, Tyangboche Monastery, and appreciate the bird's view of Mt. Everest. Namche Bazaar is a midway stop on the Everest climbing route. It is built on the hillside, like being in the circular auditorium of an open-air theater. Below the hillside, two deep river valleys are in the shape of a V converge. Thyangboche Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the Khumbu Valley in eastern Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 3,867 meters. On the way to the Everest Base Camp, it is one of the most famous and largest temples in the entire region.

Continue to fly over Pheriche, Khumbu Icefall and glaciers. The Khumbu Icefall is considered to be the fortress and the most dangerous section when climbers try to hike to the summit of Mount Everest. Later, we will reach today's destination Mount Everest Base Camp. In the climbing season of Mount Everest, climbers from all over the world will fill the glacier. The colorful tents can stretch for one kilometer. We will land at Kala Pattar 5,400 meters above sea level. It is the best viewing spot for thousands of snowy peaks including the Mount Everest. Stop for a while for you to take pictures. Afterwards, proceed to Everest View Hotel to rest and have breakfast. After breakfast, we will return to Kathmandu by helicopter and stop at Lukla on the way. Upon arrival in Kathmandu airport, the guide and the driver will escort you back to the hotel.
