Get an aerial view of the Himalayas. They look entirely different from the views from the ground. Short compared to trekking to the Everest yet equally enticing and exhilarating, Mt. Everest Heli Tour is three stops package that will take you to Lukla, Kalapathar or Periche and at Gokyo Lake!

Mount Everest is a dream for almost every human soul but only a few gutsy ones attempt to scale it, some strong ones trek all the way to see it live in front of the eyes… And a very few fortunate ones take it to the next level and take on Heli tour to get the aerial perspective of the Himalayas.

Everest Heli tour will take you around the Himalayas, flying close to world’s tallest peak Mt. Everest, unfolding the Himalayas from the comfort of the helicopter. You will get to fly over Everest region, fly above Everest Base Camp and stop briefly at Kala Patthar (5550m), the most popular viewpoint in the region. Moreover enjoy breakfast at Shyangboche surrounded by Himalayan peaks, before flying back to Kathmandu.

As you hover above over 8000-meter peaks, you would be able to peek into the world of heavenly feeling, feasting your eyes on the frozen panorama. The view over Khumbu Glacier and Icefall is one to die for during the climbing season with vibrant colored tented camps of expedition groups fill the area. You will also get to step on the most popular viewpoint in Everest Region, the Kala Patthar that stands at 5550 m. During the shortstop at this point, you will have adequate time to take pictures and savor close-up views of Pumori, Nuptse, Lobuche and Mount Everest.

Our Everest Heli tour is just for you to enjoy every bit of second in the wonderful Khumbhu region, flexible and accumulating your choice. You can choose to combine short trekking with an exciting helicopter ride tour. It is the best way to trek past the charming Sherpa villages and majestic mountain views.  After trekking for some times you arrive at a place from where you board the helicopter and fly across the rising 8000 peaks before finally arriving in Lukla for your way back to Kathmandu.

The exotic Everest Heli tour begins from Kathmandu. We begin our short trip to Nepal by visiting Kathmandu’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We will get a bird’s eye view of the Capital city on the way to Lukla, the short stopover for refueling. Flying parallel to the Himalayan range we can see endless chains of frozen mountains. We then make a stopover at Kala Patthar which is the best viewpoint to admire the rare and up-close beauty of the mighty Himalayas including Everest. After spending some time at Kala Patthar, we fly to Gokyo Lakes which are a set of six lakes that form the world’s highest freshwater lake system. We land near the third lake which is referred to as ‘the Gokyo Lake’ and admire its tranquil beauty. We can see people including trekkers with backpacks moving like ants on trails cut deep on the mountainsides. Fly above Sherpa settlements, solitary yak herders’ camps and ancient monasteries. We then fly back to Kathmandu and end our Everest Heli-tour in Nepal.

Simply put “WOW”.

Simply put "WOW". I have never met more responsible people in my life. They made sure every step of the way was taken care of from the drivers, tour guides, trek guides, porters and hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this company for its hard working, responsible and friendly people. The people make a company. Special thanks to: Anuja "the planner", Chitiz & Ashmir "the ultimate trekking guides" and finally Robin "the enthusiastic jungle bird watcher".

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip!

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip! We did the trip that included time in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan National Park and a 5-day trek around Annapurna. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we had guides showing us around and everything was perfectly planned for us. Maila, our trekking guide was amazing and had so much knowledge! It was a great trip!

Incredibly well organized

This company was amazing. Incredibly well organized. I felt safe and spoiled. Our airport transports were always early and waiting for us. All of our reservations for our accommodations and busses were perfect. The temple tour we took was super fun and educational. Some of our luggage got stuck in our layover country and between this travel agency and our hotel they were able to get it for us and deliver it the next day. We also had a 10month old traveling with us and they made sure that our accommodation and travel plans were safe for him. During our 5 days of trekking, we had THE BEST guide/sherpa. I would positively let them plan another trip for us. Thank you!!!!
Karen Graves,

I had a wonderful experience

I recently booked a tour with Plan Holidays, and I had a wonderful experience. Anuja scheduled the tour, and it was comforting to have our trip covered without any concerns. Our guide Shiva took us through Kathmandu, and showed all us the highlights of the city and provided us with the cultural and historical background. We also did the Poon Hill Trek with guides Chitiz and Ashmir, who provided a peaceful hike through the Himalayas. On our last two days, we spent time in Chitwan National Park, where our guide, Robin, took us on adventures where we saw crocodiles and rhinos. The entire package was affordable, and our guides met our every need; they went out of their way for us on many occasions. It was comforting to get off the bus and see our guides waiting for us with our name tags. I would highly encourage anyone to book a trip through this company. I promise that you will have an amazing experience--five stars!
