5 Days Shortest Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return Package 2023/2024
The 5 Days Shortest Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return begins from Kathmandu. You have to be available in Kathmandu on the given date to join the trek. Our team will pick you up from your hotel lobby on the day we fly to Lukla airport. The flight will be fantastic, with stunning aerial views of the Himalayas. On the same day, you fly to Lukla you'll descend to Phakding village.
From Lukla, Phakding is situated approximately 4 hours away. The trail drops down, following lush woodlands and the Dudh Koshi river. A few small villages and suspension bridges come on the way. The walk is soothing and does not put a huge strain on your body. The trail then ascends to Namche Bazaar on the next day.
Phakding to Namche Bazaar trail is long and has some steep uphill paths towards the end of the trail. Frequently crossing hanging bridges over the Dudh Koshi river, the trail walks past some small settlements to Monjo. There is a police check right outside of this village where we register all the permits before continuing toward Namche Bazaar.
Trekking through beautiful forests of rhododendron and magnolia, we ascend and descend for a few hours. Namche Bazaar will welcome you with the heartwarming welcome of the Sherpas and enchanting scenery. You'll spend the remaining day relaxing and looking around the village. The following day, wake up early in the morning, and hike to Syangboche Airstrip. The hike is rough and offers striking mountain views.
From Syangboche begins the next adventurous part of our short Everest base camp trekking, the helicopter flight up to Everest base camp with landing at Kala Patthar. Flying over the verdant river valleys, terraces, hills, and Sherpa villages, you ascend to Kala Patthar.
The helicopter lands there for 5 to 10 minutes for you to soak in the Himalayan air and witness the breathtaking mountain panorama. You'll then fly over EBC, Khumbu glacier, and Khumbu Icefall before descending to Lukla. Spend the rest of the day in Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu the next day.
