This is a perfect Everest Base Camp trek if you do not have time for the complete round trip. Trek to EBC and fly back out by chartered helicopter
This is a perfect Everest Base Camp trek if you do not have time for the complete round trip. This trek is designed for hiking to EBC and flying out in a chartered helicopter.
This Everest Base Camp trekking package has been designed to offer views uniquely different from what other trekking companies provide. We do this by taking you to the base of one of the most beautiful mountains in the region – Amadablam.
Trekkers rarely visit the base camp at Amadablam, and the hike up to Amadablam base camp takes you along the tree line into a high altitude alpine forest and through summer pastures with stunning views of the Maha Langgur range. This cannot be seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp. We also bypass the congested Tengboche Monastery area, and you stay at the village of Pangboche, where the “responsible” in our adventures brings business to the lodge owners here who need the income.
This trek follows in the famous footsteps of Everest’s greatest climbing parties. Once above the tree line, the scenery is stark but spectacular. In the distance, set with Ama Dablam, Everest, and other mountains behind, we can view the incredible monastery at Tengboche in a unique setting.
Our goal is to climb Kala Pathar (5545 m) for the ultimate view of Mt. Everest, where the spirit of this mountain legend can be captured and savored.
Your experienced group leader and assistant guides make your health and welfare a priority throughout this trek while providing everything possible for a safe and memorable adventure.
Flying out by helicopter also saves you several days of walking back down the same trail, making the end of this adventure all the more relaxing.
