Overview

While climbing the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, requires immense effort, skill and time, getting to the base camp is quite a bit easier and less time consuming, however for those on a really tight schedule, Accessible Adventures has come up with the Everest Base Camp Heli-Trek that shortens the duration of a regular EBC trek down to only 12 days without compromising on the Himalayan experience. There is also plenty of time allotted for acclimatization and exploration.

Through a chartered helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, you will be able to view the many hills and mountains from the east of Nepal from the sky and be able to see the Kathmandu valley as well as numerous small villages and towns scattered throughout Nepal.

 From Lukla, officially begins, walking through dense forests of pine and rhododendrons in a preserved area known as the Sagarmatha National Park. Numerous small villages dot the trek to the land of the sherpa, Namche Bazaar, the gateway to Everest.

Spending around two nights at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes, we will hike around the area, to get  the body accustomed to the low amounts of oxygen. Namche Bazaar itself has numerous locations of interest that will have you occupied and fascinated for the two days. We take the classic the classic route from here to Everest base camp via Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorekshep.

At Dingboche village we will also be spending two nights while climbing the nearby smaller mountains in the region. The view from the small village of Dingboche is indeed amazing and the medieval stone walls built around the village centuries will make your imagination travel to the past.

Moving further to Kalapathhar which lies at a massive altitude of 5500m and the Everest base camp. The view of Mount Everest and surrounding mountains like Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam are absolutely stunning.  Reaching the starting point to climbing Everest is an accomplishment on its own and after taking pictures and taking in the view, we make our way back to Gorakshep where a chartered helicopter awaits.

Rather than walking back to catch a flight from Lukla, the helicopter journey gives you the opportunity to explore the Everest region from the sky and be able to see the Mahalangur mountains face to face. The helicopter ride has been reviewed by many to be one of the best experiences of their life. This also saves quite a few days of trekking and exhaustion.

Spending the night in Lukla, relaxing after the journey you just took, the morning flight back to Kathmandu will mark the end of the trek.
