 Discovering Everest: A Luxury Trek with Helicopter Return

Plan your trek where adventure meets luxury – the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek with Helicopter Return. This unique experience combines the raw beauty of the Himalayas with the comfort of high-end accommodation and services, creating a trek that's as rewarding as it is memorable. Perfect for those looking to indulge in the majestic vistas of the Everest region without sacrificing comfort, this trek offers an incredible blend of opulence and adventure.

A Unique Blend of Comfort and Adventure

The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek by Helicopter not only offers an adventure of a lifetime but also wraps it in luxury. After challenging days spent hiking through the breathtaking landscapes of the Khumbu region, deeply entrenched in Buddhist culture and home to the cheerful Sherpa community, you can unwind in luxury lodges that offer cozy twin rooms with attached bathrooms. This trek is an excellent choice for anyone celebrating a special occasion like a honeymoon or an anniversary, or simply for those who wish to experience trekking in luxury.

The journey starts with sightseeing in Kathmandu, where you stay in five-star hotels and soak in the local culture and historical heritage. From there, you fly to Lukla, the gateway to Everest, and begin your trek through iconic trails leading to the Everest Base Camp. Unlike traditional treks, you won’t need to trek back the same path, as a helicopter will whisk you from Gorakshep back to Kathmandu, saving you time and offering a breathtaking aerial view of the landscapes you traversed.

Itinerary and High-End Accommodations

Your trek route mirrors the classic Everest Base Camp Trek up until Gorakshep. Here, amidst some of the world's highest peaks, your trekking challenge culminates. After reaching Gorakshep and spending a brief period soaking in the monumental beauty of Everest Base Camp, a helicopter will be ready to take you back to Kathmandu. This not only provides a thrilling conclusion to your trek but also offers a unique perspective of the Himalayas from above, highlighting the rugged terrain and ethereal beauty of the region.

Throughout your journey, you will be accommodated in the best luxury lodges available, ensuring that each day ends with a touch of comfort and elegance. Whether it’s the warm hospitality of the Sherpa people or the tranquil solitude of the mountains, every aspect of your trek is designed to provide an unparalleled experience.Tripadvisor

Expert Support and Guidance

With Himalaya Heart Treks, you are in capable hands. Our mountain guides are seasoned veterans, familiar with the nuances of high-altitude trekking and equipped to handle any situation that might arise. They are supported by a team of porters and staff who are equally well-prepared and equipped with top-notch gear for the journey. Your trip leader will continuously monitor all aspects of the expedition to ensure that every participant is comfortable, safe, and poised to achieve their trekking goals.

Planning for Contingencies

It's important to note that flights to Lukla, notorious for their dependence on weather conditions, can occasionally be delayed, especially during the monsoon season from late May to early September. While these delays are an integral part of the adventure in the Everest region, they can be frustrating. We recommend adding a day or two at the end of your trip as a buffer to accommodate potential delays, especially if you have an international connection.

The Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek with Helicopter Return is more than just a trek; it’s a fusion of spectacular natural beauty, cultural richness, and luxury. This journey offers an unforgettable adventure with all the comforts of high-end travel, allowing you to enjoy the majesty of Everest without the hassle of retracing your steps.

FAQs

Do I need to bring my own sleeping bag?

You can bring your sleeping bag from home or you can rent one in Kathmandu or Himalaya Heart will loan you one. Most tea houses also have blankets but we suggest you bring a warm bag with a liner to use with the blankets.

Are permits included in the price of the trek?

Yes. All of the necessary permits and conservation fees for your trek are included in the price and will be arranged for you by Himalaya Heart prior to your trek. (we prefer doing this on line before your arrival) For certain restricted regions (like Manaslu and Upper Mustang) we need to have a full day in Kathmandu prior to your trek as we need your passport for the permit registration.

What date does the trek start?

We have fixed departures clearly stated in the website otherwise if you are planning to make your tour specific to you and your group the tour starts on the date that works best for you.Typically, you need 2 days in Kathmandu prior to your trek.

Where can I store my luggage during the trek?

You can leave your additional luggage at your hotel in Kathmandu or at our company office in Thamel. Either way, your luggage will be waiting for you at your hotel when you return back from your trek

What trekking gear should I bring from home?

You can buy virtually everything you need for trekking from down jackets to water bottles in Kathmandu. There is a variety of branded stores as well as a large selection of copied products mainly in Thamel that are of fairly good quality. It’s still worth bringing your own gear if it doesn’t take up too much weight, especially your own trekking boots to avoid any potential issues when purchasing new shoes..

What kind of trekking boots do I need?

You should bring trekking boots that are comfortable and broken in. There can be some snow at higher altitudes especially when crossing high passes, so it’s good to be prepared for a variety of conditions. Your footwear should be strong and durable. It should have a chunky sole—preferably made of Vibram or another durable material—and should also protect your ankles..

How much should I tip the guide and porters?

Tipping is not required but is expected, and really depends on how happy you were with the service. Guides (both for trekking and cultural tours), porters, and drivers are typically provided with a tip at the end of their service with you..

How long do we trek each day?

Most days in the mountains involve 4-6 hours and longer of trekking. When you consider your day starts at 8 am and ends around 4-5 pm, it’s not too arduous as you’ll be taking a number of breaks and stopping for lunch along the way. The higher you get in elevation (especially in the Everest region), the shorter your trekking days will get to ensure we minimize the risk of altitude sickness.

Do I have to carry my own gear?

You only need to carry your day pack with daily essentials (sunblock, water, hat, light jacket, and camera) Our porters carry the bulk of your gear, such as extra clothing and overnight essentials

Do the guides speak English & have first aid training?

All of our guides at Himalaya Heart speak English and have had many years of experience in guiding foreign travelers. It’s a requirement that they all are trained in first aid as well and we carry a first aid kit during the trek.

What is the usual group size for a trek?

For group treks (treks that start on a specific date and are open for travelers to join), the group size can range from 2-10 people but typically ends up being around 4-6 people.

What happens if I fall ill during the trek?

If you fall ill during your trek, the course of action depends on what’s wrong. If it’s altitude sickness, moving to lower altitudes and taking altitude medication will solve this in most cases; if it’s severe, our guide will arrange for an emergency evacuation by helicopter Himalayan Heart will cover the initial costs then claim from your insurer (be sure that emergency helicopter rescue is covered in your travel insurance it is an essential requirement before travelling with us). If you have stomach sickness or another type of food or water-related illness, our guide will have medication on-hand for most common illnesses.

The best trip with the best guide!

My mother and I just got home from a 2-week trip to hike the Everest Base Camp track.

We were guided by Hari, who came strongly recommended via multiple reviews online and was just as fabulous in person.

From touching down in Kathmandu, the team at Himalaya Heart were waiting for us with Marigold flowers to show us some true Nepalese culture.

Our first day we were taken around Thamel, to ensure we had all the equipment required. We did bring most things as described on the packing list given to us before departure however it was handy to go around with our guide to make sure we had the final things before we departed.

From the morning we left out hotel, our guide Hari, constantly made sure we were comfortable and well informed on what was going on ahead of us. We were fortunate because they managed to organise us a helicopter from Kathmandu to Lukla, ensuring we had a safe and easy trip up the hill.

Each night our accommodation provided to us along the trek was fabulous, with Hari continuously ensuring we have the best options provided to us.
Upon mealtime, he would also check with the chef's at each hotel to see what produce was the freshest to ensure we were always eating quality and healthy food.

Over the course of the next 8 days, we trekked from Lukla to EBC while maintaining a solid pace and feeling very strong. The guidance provided to us from our guide Hari definitely helped us achieve our goals of reaching base camp.

If you are contemplating booking with Himilaya Heart Treks, I would strongly consider you do because my mother and I cannot recommend them strongly enough.

Thank you for making the trek one we will remember for a lifetime.

Great Experience

We did the Everest Base Camp trek with Himalaya Heart, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! We had the honor of the first trek with them since COVID hit, and the disruption didn’t seem to have knocked them off their stride at all.

Our guide Hari picked us up personally at the airport, and he was a consummate pro. We couldn’t have asked for better in a guide: Hari was knowledgeable, courteous, spoke great English, and was always one step ahead (literally and figuratively) in anticipating what we would need and when we would need it. More than that, he was just a great all-around guy, and by the end of the trip we could honestly say we considered him not just a guide, but also a friend.

On the logistics side, Himalaya Heart was up front with all the info we needed, and they were very responsive to our questions via email and WhatsApp. The price they quoted never changed, and they were very clear about what was and was not included in our trek package. They even facilitated our COVID tests for our return travel so we didn’t have to worry about how we would get that done. Thakur and Shital were honest brokers who obviously cared about our experience, and they went out of their way to ensure we were completely satisfied.

I highly recommend Himalaya Heart for trekking in Nepal, particularly if you are looking to support a reasonably-priced, local company. These guys handle their business like pros, and I would use them again with no hesitation.
