Full description
This aerial tour of the Everest region will provide you with breathtaking views of the region and memories to last a lifetime. Each participant gets a window seat while flying to Everest Base Camp. Fly east from Kathmandu towards the beautiful Sherpa village and the gateway to Everest, Lukla. After fueling in Lukla, fly towards the Everest Base Camp at Kalapathar. The flight goes over the Tengboche, Dingboche, Gorakshep and Khumbu glaciers to reach the Everest Base Camp. You will be given a maximum of 5 minutes landing time at the Base Camp due to the altitude threat. Located at approximately 5644m, it provides unbelievable views of Mount Everest, Nuptse, Changtse and Lhotse. Indulge in an exclusive breakfast at the Everest View Hotel, located on a ridge. Watch the changing landscape as clouds drift past the peaks and reveal forests and small villages on the mountain sides. You will then fly back to Lukla for fueling and then to Kathmandu to end this amazing experience.
