The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour starts from Kathmandu and flies east towards Everest Base Camp, passing beautiful Sherpa villages and serving as the gateway to Everest. During the flight, you can enjoy eagle-eye views of the Kathmandu Valley's heritage sites. As the flight progresses, snowcapped peaks begin to appear, and the helicopter lands at Lukla airport for refueling, providing a glimpse of the picturesque Lukla villages.
After refueling in Lukla, the flight continues towards Everest Base Camp, passing notable landmarks such as Tengboche, Dingboche, and Gorakshep.

Other peaks such as Amma Dablam, Thamserku, Lhotse, and the Khumbu glacier can also be seen from the base camp.
Due to altitude concerns, the landing time at Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar is limited to a maximum of five minutes. However, during this time, you can enjoy the 360° views of Mount Everest and take beautiful pictures to commemorate your journey.
