This presents you a fair chance to enjoy the Khumbu land, Sagarmatha National Park and the Sherpa people: their lifestyle, culture, tradition and hospitality. However, in this trip, instead of walking all the way up to the base camp, from Shyangboche you will fly to the Everest Base Camp and get back to Kathmandu on a helicopter.

The standard Everest Base Camp Heli Trek by AME guarantees bed and breakfast in Kathmandu (in a 5 star hotel) and full board (meal and accommodation in one of the best eateries and lodges, respectively) during the trek , all ground transportation and an English speaking, professional, trained, experienced and licensed guide. This package can be customized to meet your need, requirements and budget.

This package is perfect for time bound travelers. It is also perfect for groups with elderly and children and for those, who do not have the stamina and determination to walk all the way up to the base camp of Mt. Everest. In terms of weather, climate, visibility and trail, spring and autumn are considered the best seasons to plan this trip; however, if it is difficult for you to manage a holiday during these seasons, this trip can definitely be planned any time of the year.
