Everest Base Camp: Trek & Fly Back with Helicopter

What better than trekking to the Everest Base Camp Trek, you ask? We say Everest Base Camp With Helicopter return. The trip is about trekking to Base Camp and enjoying scenic views of Lukla, Namche Bazar, and Tengboche. Then, fly above stunning views of the path you walked back to Kathmandu.

The nine-day trek starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, we follow the classic itinerary to Everest Base Camp. On the first day itself, after a 30-minute flight to Lukla, we trekked to Phakding and spent the night there.

The next day, after an early morning breakfast, the trek expands to Namche Bazar. At Namche Bazar, you can explore the buzz of the Tibetan market, which features handmade artifacts. As we have gained quite an altitude by now and will move further up in the following days, the next day is dedicated to acclimatizing at Namche Bazar.

After relaxing on the third day, our bodies will adapt well to the trek to Tengboche on the fourth day. This day is the most challenging part of the Everest Base Camp Trek. Not to mention, it is also one of the most visually rewarding. It flaunts majestic landscapes and the largest gompa/monastery in the Khumbu region, called Tengboche Monastery.

On the fifth day, the trek takes you to Dingboche, which lies at an altitude of 4410 m. It will be around a six-hour long walk. Accompanied by sights of Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Nuptse, etc.

It is time for acclimatization again to prevent the possibility of suffering from mountain sickness/ altitude sickness. So, the sixth day will be about exploring Dingboche and preparing for the next day.

The next day, the stunning Louche awaits us. We get to behold the sight of the world’s highest glacier, Khumbu Glacier. Other than the elevation gain, the trek to Lobuche doesn’t have challenging trails. So, we will take it slow and easy.

Finally, on the eighth day, we trek to the lap of Everest. This day comprises the longest walk of the Everest Base Camp trek. First, the trek expands to Gorakshep from Lobuche, which is about 3 hours long. Then, after resting for a bit, we head to the Everest Base Camp. To spend the night we return back to Gorakshep.

On the last day, we first trek to Kala Patthar, AKA the best viewpoint of Everest. After spending some time syncing in the beauty of Kala Patthar, the trek takes you back to Gorakshep. Then, we take the most awaited scenic helicopter ride from Gorakshep to Kathmandu, which is about an hour long.

    Traveling in Nepal during the Monsoon Season

    Monsoon season in Nepal is a low time for tourist movement. But there are a lot of activities and tours that you can still do during the rainy season and enjoy it. The greatest advantage of traveling in Nepal during the monsoon season is having fewer tourists. Fewer tourists mean you can explore and enjoy your time in a peaceful atmosphere.

    The months of June, July, and August get heavy rainfall causing the days to be wet. But if you enjoy the rain, there are lots of activities you can do during the monsoon in Nepal. Short sightseeing tours like Kathmandu Valley Tour offer a wonderful experience of touring around in monsoon.

    Not only short tours but also longer ones like Nepal Heritage Tour give you a pleasant experience of traveling in Nepal.

    Does it rain every day?

    As this is the heavy raining season in Nepal, you can expect rainfall every day. But the good news is it doesn’t rain all day long most of the days. You will feel fine with an umbrella or rain poncho/jacket. Even though it rains, you will be able to enjoy the tour activities you sign up for.

    You can enjoy from cultural sightseeing tours to jungle safari activities.

    Is trekking a doable activity during monsoon?

It is absolutely possible to go for Everest Base Camp Trek and the likes. Traveling in Nepal during the monsoon season brings a joyful adventure experience in the mountains.

    Challenges during the monsoon

    The biggest challenge of tours in Nepal during the monsoon season is certainly the rain itself. As it rains almost every day during the season, it may make you feel the challenge. If you are in Nepal during the monsoon for a few days, you can certainly feel the rain challenging your activities. But the good thing is that it doesn’t challenge you all day long most of the time.

    When the monsoon in Nepal starts, one of the main traveling seasons (The spring) just comes to the end. Thus, the movement of tourists in the country declines. But there are still some travelers enjoying the wonders that Nepal has to offer in Monsoon.

    Advantages of traveling in Nepal during the monsoon

    There are also a lot of benefits of traveling in Nepal during the rainy season. The most important of all is the peaceful atmosphere because of the less movement of tourists around. As one of the main seasons is just over, there are only a few tourists in the country.

    You can also see beautiful greenery everywhere you travel during the monsoon in Nepal. The rain-enhanced greenery and nature look so fascinating that send you overwhelming vibes.

    You will also get to travel around at a more reasonable cost during the time compared to the main seasons.

    It is only a low season for tourist movements but certainly not for the attractions. You will enjoy an even better and different experience on the tours in Nepal during the monsoon season.
