OVERVIEW

"I may not have climbed Mt. Everest, but I have touched it with my heart".

Everest Helicopter Day tour with Champagne Breakfast at the foot of Mount Everest a truly breathtaking experience !!!

Everest is not all about a mountain flight in Nepal, which has made it one of the most popular activities for tourists. These flights offered by Nepalese domestic airlines offer a fantastic alternative not just to view Mt. Everest but almost the Himalayan panoramic view. Very few experiences can compare with this ecstatic close encounter with the famed mountains of the Nepal Himalayas unraveling as the aircraft apparently inches eastward. Most of the flights take the west to east direction unveiling the beautiful mountains one after another. The first one to appear is the Ganesh Himal with its four peaks followed by Langtang (7,234m), Shisha Pangma (8013m), Gauri Shankar (7,134m), Melungtse (7,181m), Cho Oyu (8,201m), Gyachungkang (7,652m), Pumori (7,161m), Nuptse (7,855m), Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Chamlang (7,139m), Makalu (8,643m) and Kanchenjunga (8,586 m). 

The helicopter used by the airlines are Air Bus B350E series with 5~6-seating capacities aircraft. They can carry only 3 persons to land at KalaPatthar (5,400 m) for enjoying the Everest vista while others will have to get down at the mid-way point at Periche (4,200m) where there is a high altitude clinic and a very nice Lodge where the remaining passengers may get off and allow the helicopter to make the shuttles carrying 3 persons at a time.
