Everest Base Camp heli tour with Gokyo Lakes is an 8-day trip that begins with sightseeing of World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu followed by a very short trek in the world-renowned Everest region. The main attraction of the trip is the heli ride over the Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Lakes and Kalapathhar. Stopping our chopper at Kalapatthar and Gokyo Lakes and spending some time at these locations, will truly enrich our Himalayan experience. From Kalapathhar, we get excellent views of the Himalayas including Everest, the highest mountain on earth. In Gokyo, the pristine emerald colored Gokyo lakes are ours to admire. Additionally, we also get to see the beautiful Khumbu Valley, Khumbu Glacier and Icefall region. On our helicopter ride we will also get to admire outstanding views of Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse and other Himalayan peaks.
The helicopter tour is ideal for those who wish to experience everything Everest but don’t have time to walk all the way to the Everest Base Camp. ‘Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Tour by Heli’ also includes trekking for a little over two days so that we get to experience first-hand what it’s like to walk on the trails that famous men like Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary have treaded upon.
