    Yes, yes, YES to all of this article! I’m definitely not a hiker and would most definitely appreciate a helicopter tour to the base camp! My initial thought was that this type of helicopter tour was pretty pricey, but then I had to take a second and remind myself that this is EVEREST that we’re talking about. So yeah, I’d definitely save up for this experience! I had no idea that this was even possible!

    I must say I had given up the hope of viewing the Everest as Im not fit enough to go trekking but this post gives me smiles as using the helicopter could get me close to it . I have visited Nepal years ago but dont think they had this service at the time. It would be a bit pricey but your not going to do it again and again so why not . The views from the helicopter are equally amazing . Thanks for sharing a great way to see the Everest.

      Absolutely, Amar. It’s a great choice for people that don’t think are fit enough or just don’t have enough time. It might be pricey but it is once-in-a-lifetime experience 🙂

    Such a pity that you cannot go to the top of Everest in a helicopter because that would’ve been something! But even the base camp isn’t bad and it surely is an extremely tough hike, so going by helicopter, even though it’s really expensive, sounds great. I can imagine the altitude sickness once you reach and thanks for the tips on what to carry and the weight limit.

      Well, technically it is possible but the risks associated with it are too high 🙂 However, even reaching the base camp is a stunning experience

    Everest is something that we all want to view. I have heard so much about the mountain and the EBC, I really want to visit there now. A helicopter ride is really something to remember and cherish. I am actually preparing for Everest Base Camp trek as I plan to do it next year, if everything goes well.

    I’ve to say, I’m not the most adventurous when it comes to traveling, so this was an interesting read. Nepal is somewhere I’ve never thought of visiting, but to see Mount Everest from helicopter would be an incredible sight, though super expensive. I appreciate the good tips you listed here too.

    A helicopter journey to EBC must surely be one of the most exciting experiences in the world. It is also a nice way to experience the worlds greatest mountain ranges and highest peak for those who cannot trek all the way. this is something we would love to do someday and this post is really valuable in terms of the information you have provided.

      Thank you, Cat Lin. I’m glad you liked this article. That’s a good question, actually! I don’t think there are, at least I didn’t see any because the lakes are basically glacier-fed freshwater wetlands

    Everest is on the top priority in my travel wish list. To see this enchanting mountain range through helicopter, would be the most beautiful thing to do here. I would also love to see the highest glacier of the world – Khumbu here.
