Everest Helicopter tours

Helicopter tours to Mount Everest base camp.

 

Not everyone is able to hike up to the base camp of Mount Everest. Some are constrained by time and some by physical fitness. The good news is you don’t have to be limited to Everest base camp hiking these days. There are regular and chartered helicopter tours to the Everest region from Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal.

Everest base camp is situated at an altitude of 5335 meters from the sea level. Even the cost of trekking the Everest base camp is not very cheap. One slice of bread near the base camp at the highest bakery in the world might cost around 10 dollars. That is way more expensive than the most expensive cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and any other European or American. You can do the maths! If you are trekking for 11 days, it will cost you way more than you would imagine!


Going up to the Everest base camp also depends on the weather if you are hiking. Weather can get nasty anytime at the highest mountain on earth. The packing list for Everest base camp trekking can also go on and on! Everest base camp guide cost, insurance and whole lot of other things make it very expensive and last but not the least the flights to Lukla, they are not cheap either (around 500 USD round trip). All these things make the trekking expensive. If you are short of time and have a group size of 4 (you can join groups with other people as well) then Everest base camp Heli tours cost is considerably reduced.
