This Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla by helicopter trek are in the Khumbu region of Nepal, commonly known as the Everest region, which is also home to Mt. Everest (8,848m). As the highest mountain in the world, Mt.Everest is no wonder the dreamland of every adventurer who seeks peace and love within mother nature and its grandeur.

One such incredible experience of a lifetime is an adventure towards the base camp of the mountain of the mountains, Mt. Everest or Sagarmatha, which has a combined masterpiece of well-traversed trekking trails with the untouched true beauty of the Himalayas, well known for its beautiful scenery and the warm hospitality of the natives of the region, Sherpa.

Remarkable as it always has been, the landscapes you will come across en route to on an adventure in the Everest Base Camp, which is accessible to every healthy individual, unlike summiting the peak demanding years of sharpened technical climbing knowledge and experience, are diverse, which seems out of the world.

Therefore, the Everest Base Camp Trek is a journey of a lifetime that balances the yin and yang. At the same time, you pass by a few parts with steep ascents and descents, crossing goosebumping suspension bridges, and spiritual awakening at the largest and oldest monasteries of the region, called Tengboche and Dingboche.

Don’t worry, the Everest Region is another name for the cultural expedition, when you will get to stay in different tea houses, guest houses, lodges, or homestays opened by the locals of the Himalayas dominated by the people of Sherpa in an admirable harmony with other ethnic communities. The majority of them are practitioners of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism as reflected by the Everest region's rich cultural monuments.

The time has come to hear the calling of adventure from the Everest region of Nepal to immerse yourself in the serene encompassment of the highest peak in the world and the lifestyle of the famous Sherpa people, who are honored for their extraordinary power of adaptation at higher altitudes.

Everest Base Camp Trek and back to Lukla by helicopter: a journey must be done to find your life's true purpose and be awed by the fact that Everest is not the end of adventure and thrill but a beginning. Here are some other alternatives if you are looking for what to do after it:

What to expect at Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla by Helicopter Trek?

As soon as the trip begins, you will be mesmerized by the aerial vistas of the majestic Himalayas of Nepal, from Kathmandu to Lukla. The sky-soaring hills, cascading waterfalls, verdant forests, and dotted settlements in between look breathtaking.

Hence, there is no doubt the Everest Base Camp Trek is an iconic adventurous trail of the tallest peak in the world, which enables a fantastic natural exploration along with the cultural endeavor where you can expect:

Awesome flight to and from Lukla

One of the deciding factors that makes the Everest tour famous is the flight to and from Lukla, which grants trekkers and travelers not only spine-tingling moments but also a scenic experience like never before.

Furthermore, on this Everest Base Camp Trek, rather than retracing the trekking route back to Lukla by foot, you will board a helicopter that you will not be able to help boast about and is relatively more convenient than hiking down for another 5–6 days.

Similarly, the short landing strip of the Lukla airport, otherwise known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport, is what adventurous spirits find more exciting, along with the never-ending panoramic views of Lhotse (8,576m), Makalu (8,463m), Cho Oyu (8,201 m), and Khumbutse (6,665m), including Mt. Everest (8,848m).

Delve into the rich biodiversity of the Sagarmatha National Park

The odyssey to the base of Everest demands the registration of a permit in Monjo or Phakding as soon as you enter the protected national park area of Nepal in the Everest region named Sagarmatha National Park, registered as one of the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites.

The intent of being one of the conservation areas is to protect the delicate ecosystem of the Himalayas, which you can fully enjoy during your 12-day Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla flight trek.

In the lower elevations, Sagarmatha National Park features lush forests of rhododendron, pine, birch, bamboo, and oak, which transit into the alpine meadows to the barren landscapes at highly elevated land from Namche onwards.

Similarly, the Himalayan tahr, musk deer, red panda, and Himalayan black bear are some of the native world widely endangered mammals of the Sagarmatha National Park in the Everet region that you can encounter in our 12-day Everest Base Camp and return to Lukla by helicopter trek.

Look up to the cultural and religious significance of Tengboche Monastery

Tengboche monastery is one of the top destinations for trekkers and travelers visiting the Khumbu region, which is also believed to be the most ancient monastery in the whole realm of Everest. It has been serving as one of the best places for social gatherings, where the locals of the region come together to celebrate religious festivals such as Mane Ridum and Dumje.

Additionally, Thame, Khumjung, Pangboche, and Dingboche are a few other famous monasteries in the territory of Everest, which hold a highly spiritual and religious significance, prevailing in the cultural abundance of the region that you can be part of.

Must you summit Kala Patthar?

Yes, it is not mandatory, but it is one hundred percent a popular side trip for trekkers visiting the Everest Base Camp. Kala Patthar, translating to ‘Black stone/rock’ in Nepali, is one of the substantial vantage points of the Everest trekking region near Gorak Shep.

Standing tall at 5,643 m/18,514 ft, Kala Patthar provides the most wondrous panoramic views of Mount Everest and other surrounding peaks, including Nuptse, Lhotse, and Pumori, which look more extraordinary in the morning when the first ray of sunlight fills the golden hue at the top of all these.

Likewise, this scenic viewpoint takes you closer to the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest (8,848 m), even from the base camp itself, providing a unique insight into the summit of Mount Everest to capture with your lenses.

Since reaching Kala Pathar involves a steep uphill ramble, it has hidden a great sense of achievement upon arriving at such a high altitude, not only with the impressive view but also with the memory of a lifetime in the crisp mountain air, where tranquility and serenity have taken the lead of all.

A joyous typical day in the Namche Bazaar

Namche Bazaar is the epicenter and gateway to the Everest region, which historically was a major trading hub for the Khumbu people perched on an arch-shaped mountain with stunning views of the surrounding peaks, including a glimpse of Mt. Everest (8,848m).

Generally, as a part of acclimatization, trekkers are suggested to spend a day here only for exploration, where you can see the thriving little town market influx with travelers around the globe collecting souvenirs and other useful material for their upcoming journey to the Everest Base Camp.

While you roam around Namche, you will not be able to help yourself get mesmerized by the cultural beauty of the Sherpa people and their simple yet enriching lifestyle. The whole town pays tribute to the mountaineers and expeditors, showcasing their kind hearts filled with nothing but humbleness.

In the same way, Namche Bazaar is also a paradise for foodies, where one can taste delicacies ranging from typical Nepali and Tibetan dishes to several international cuisines. Many households here sell organic yak cheese and butter, which is worth buying.

What possibly can beat the feeling of being at the base camp of the world’s largest mountain?

Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla by helicopter is an ideal trip to invest yourself in the Himalayas of Nepal. Walking from the city of Sherpa to the majestic peaks at the Everest Base Camp (EBC) is a perfect vacation destination for you to carry out the long-lasting experience of adventure.

The overall journey will be out of this world while you stand at an elevation of 5,364 at the Everest Base Camp, where a 5–6 strenuous hike each day to the Everest region comes fruitful at the foot of the Khumbu glacier.

Although technically there are two base camps on Mt. Everest, South Base Camp in Nepal is at an altitude of 4,364 m (17,598 ft), and North Base Camp in China is at 5,150 m (16,900 ft) above sea level.

The one in Nepal, the South Base Camp of Everest, is considered more favorable, adventurous, and popular as one of the historical routes trodden by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa.

The great Khumbu glacier and Khumbu icefall, along with the panoramic vistas of enormous Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Pumori, and several others from the Everest Base Camp, are the reward of your unswayed determination and witnesses to your adventurous journey that comes once in a lifetime.

Heaven could be a myth, but Nepal is real, and its Everest, the highest gigantic peak in the world, is calling. Answer it now and contact us for a surreal, adventurous journey to the Everest region.

Useful Info

When is the best time to visit the Everest Base Camp (EBC)?

“The Everest Base Camp for every season” prevails! Trekkers are likely to find the Everest Base Camp adventure in Nepal suitable throughout the year, from novice adventurers who have just stepped out in the wild to refined, well-versed travelers and climbers.

Regardless, spring and fall are considered the best times to venture on an EBC trek, which is considerably full of joy due to the more consistent and mild weather in comparison to winter, when the crisp air might cause you some frostbites along with Khumbu cough.

Mid-October through mid-November is classified as autumn when the whole Himalayan encompassment of the Everest region begins to shade its color, while March, April, and May are characterized as spring when nature blooms at its finest state.

Meanwhile, trekking the EBC in the summer is also possible, which might require extra gear. Hence, spring and autumn remain the unrivaled best seasons to explore the Everest Base Camp.

Food and accommodation during the Everest Base Camp Trek

The trekking trail of the Everest Base Camp features well-maintained and established teahouses and local lodges along the route, where you will be offered daily meals. Usually, teahouses are taken as basic accommodation that provides comfortable mattresses with blankets, cushions, hot and cold showers, wifi, and other modern amenities alongside twin sharing bedrooms.

However, it cannot be said so as you approach the higher altitude. The advancements of the 21st century can get limited above Namche, which is necessary for a real raw Himalayan tea house trekking experience. Nonetheless, you will be offered carbohydrates and protein-rich meals required for a higher altitude trek, which generally include Dal Bhat, a typical Nepalese dish with lentil, bean, or pulse soup, followed by heaps of rice and some seasonal vegetables. Worth a try!

In addition, Syakpa (Sherpa stew), momo (Nepali dumplings), barley, buckwheat, millet, and corn roti (bread), veg and non-veg sandwiches, bakery items, tea, coffee, and varieties of noodles are also served throughout different teahouses on the route to Everest Base Camp, along with some international menus such as pizza, spaghetti, macaroni, lasagna, curry, and fried rice.

Permits for Everest Base Camp and return to Lukla by Helicopter tour

The TIMS (Trekkers Information Management System) card is no longer effective since 2018 in the Everest region. Instead of it, to go and visit the Everest Base Camp, you will be obtaining two other permits named Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality and the Sagarmatha National Park entry.

The rural municipality permit is regulated by the local government; hence, it is not accessible from Kathmandu, while the additional entry is issued by the Nepal Trekking Board (NTB), TAAN (Trekking Agencies Association Nepal), and government-licensed trekking agencies.

The cost may vary depending on the ongoing circumstances in the country. To receive up-to-date information, you can visit the website of Adventure Himalayan Travels and Treks or any websites based on Nepal operating tours and treks within the country.

Difficulty level of Everest Base Camp and return to Lukla by Helicopter Trek

The 12-day voyage to Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla by helicopter is rated as a moderately challenging experience on the Himalayan Trail, which you might find slightly more arduous than others if it is your first high-altitude trek.

Each day is a ramble of 5–6 hours. A few sections involve rugged terrain, steep climbs, and downhill walks where you have to be extra conscious. However, all it demands is a healthy, fit, and active individual who is self-motivated, has patience, and is determined to conquer the base camp of Everest.

Concern of acute mountain sickness during the Everest Base Camp Trek

Different people react to high altitudes differently, where acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a real concern above 3,000 m, where proper acclimatization, packing, and some advanced preparedness play an important role in determining how your overall journey to the Everest Base Camp is going to be.

Therefore, you should be well aware of the symptoms of acute mountain sickness, which generally include:

  • Severe headaches
  • Lack of appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping and breathing
  • Fuzzy vision and vomiting
  • Constant nausea
  • Extremely high or low heartbeat
  • Tiredness, fatigue, etc.

On spotting the symptoms, trekkers are advised to not ascent any further and to let the body recover before descending to the lower region. For further information, it is a good idea to spare a visit to the Himalayan Rescue Association of Nepal in Kathmandu.
