Everest Base Camp Trek and Fly back by helicopterEverest Base Camp Trek and Fly back by Helicopter
Every adventure travelers and trekkers wish to be at the world’s adventure destination of the base camp of Mt. Everest but unfortunately many people can’t afford more than two weeks to complete the regular Everest Base Camp Trekking Package. Peregrine Treks has specially designed this Eleven day Everest Base Camp Trek and Fly back by Helicopter with safety and comfort on top priority. Having the chartered helicopter fly out to Kathmandu after leaving the historical footprint at EBC one doesn’t need to worry about returning the same way down and the Lukla flight cancellation.
We take an exciting flight to Lukla to start the Everest base camp heli trek and hike to Namche where we spend 2 nights for the proper acclimation. We witness and explore the vastness of Tengboche monastery before we head to Dingboche – nestles in the sunny valley facing the most beautiful Amadablam peak – a great place to spend two nights to adjust the thinner oxygen level before we climb up above 5000 meter. The alpine landscape become more rugged as we climb above the tree line on moraines to Gorak Shep via Lobuche. The walk to EBC over the Khumbu glacier moraines can be challenging but surely a great rewarding effort for the sense of achievement. If you have ever longed to set eyes on the highest Himalayan panorama and stunning glaciers around you, the view from Kalapathar will stay with you forever. We spend a night at Pheriche before we take the morning chartered helicopter flight back to Kathmandu, one of the most scenic heli rides amidst the spectacular valleys and stunning high peaks in the Himalayas – a great experience of life time never to be forgotten.
Our Everest base camp trek and fly back by helicopter itinerary is carefully designed to ensure enough time for proper acclimatization and exploration. We do stay deluxe at hotel in Kathmandu and comfortable lodges having attached bathroom at most places on trek for the comfort even in exploring the wilderness of the Everest region. We make sure to have medical trained experienced trek leader with safety back up like Oxygen tank and medical box along with enough trek crew having responsible policy of 02 TREKKER: 01 PORTER. This short Everest express trek to EBC suites best for family and group of friends who have less than two weeks for the adventure trip to Everest base camp.
