Everest Base Camp trek with Helicopter return Difficulty
Ten days of Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter return from Kala Patthar is easy, moderate, and luxurious, all combined. Our hike starts after landing at Lukla airport. The classic Everest trekking route takes us to Phakding, Namche, Tengboche, and Dingboche, where the walks are comfortable on a well-maintained trek route. Stone paved broad hiking trails won't be a significant issue on the hike.
But, the hikes to Pheriche, Lobuche, Gorak Shep, Everest Base Camp, and Kala Patthar become arduous and tiring. Lack of oxygen at these altitudes causes headaches and nausea, making trekkers tire faster. Besides that, you'll put your feet on Kala Patthar for sightseeing, return to Gorak Shep, and sit on a helicopter for a tireless and luxurious return to Lukla.
Means of Transportation for Helicopter Return Trek
Airport pickup and drop, Kathmandu to Lukla flight, and Helicopter return from Kala Patthar to Lukla or Kathmandu are the major transports in 10 days long Everest Base Camp Trek with helicopter return.
Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, as complementary, we at Dream Heaven Adventure offer our clients an accessible airport and hotel pickup and drop service.
On the trek, you'll first fly to Lukla from Kathmandu. From Lukla, you'll hike to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar before fleeing on a helicopter from Gorak Shep.
