Everest Base Camp Trek With Heli Return

Everest Base Camp Trek With Heli Return

Everest Base Camp Trek With Heli Return

After exploring Kathmandu, we take a short flight to the hillside village of Lukla (2800m). Through the diverse and eye-catching vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, we trek to the Sherpa ‘capital’ Namche Bazaar. A colorful, bustling and friendly town, Namche was formerly a trading post between Nepal and Tibet.

From Namche we move towards to Kyangjuma and ascend slowly but steadily to Phortse,Upper-Pangboche,Dingboche Lobuche and finally to Gorek Shep, advancing above the tree line into more rugged and moonscape-like surrounds. Gorek Shep at 5160m is in fact the highest point at which we will lodge, and we take our time to reach this altitude properly acclimatized. Typically, we leave our packs at Gorek Shep to make an afternoon foray to Everest Base Camp, passing spectacular glacial forms and enjoying the triumph of having made it all the way.

The following morning, we ascend Kala Pathar (5550m), a short but steep and challenging climb, which leads to a viewpoint acknowledged as one of the best from which to see Mount Everest. The climbing route from Base Camp through the Khumbu Icefall is apparent from here. The same day we will fly back to Lukla via Helicopter and stay there overnight where we will also farewell our trekking crew before flying back to Kathmandu.
