The Everest base camp trek is usually considered a little challenging, but it is not really true if you choose our Luxury Everest Base Camp Heli Trek.
This package is a blend of adventure and absolute luxury where you will get to experience breathtaking views from a helicopter and trek through the stunning landscapes of the Himalayas. And you will be staying in the best hotels and lodges throughout the trip.
Our Everest Base Camp Luxury Helicopter Tour is an amazing combination of adventure and luxury. We will be flying from the EBC (Everest Base Camp) to Kathmandu by helicopter to enjoy breathtaking views of Everest and the Khumbu valley – the land of the Sherpas.
This incredible EBC Luxury trek is designed for adventurers who want to visit the base camp but do not have extended time to do it all on foot. This trip will save you at least four days because of the helicopter trip that files you back and forth from the Everest region to Kathmandu.
The trek takes you through some of the most stunning landscapes in the world as you will trek through green forests, picturesque villages, and high mountain passes. Our experienced guides and porters from Earthbound Expeditions ensure that you have a safe and comfortable trek.
Throughout the trip, you will be staying in the best hotels and lodges, ensuring that you have a comfortable and luxurious stay. The lodges are a perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day of trekking, providing comfortable beds and bathrooms.
The lodges offer a taste of local cuisine, introducing you to the unique flavors of Nepali food. You will also have the opportunity to interact with the locals and learn about their way of life. Imagine sitting by the fireplace in the evening, sipping a cup of hot tea, and listening to the stories of the Sherpas.
On the way back, we board a helicopter, which takes us on a scenic flight over the Khumbu Valley, offering a final glimpse of the beauty of the Himalayas.
This trek can be customized for 2, 4, 6, or more people on your preferred dates or you can sign up and join an existing group trek.

You will be informed about the briefing time on your arrival at hotel.
After breakfast in the morning we take you for the Kathmandu sightseeing tour. We are going to do the UNESCO CULTURAL HERITAGE TOUR today which includes: Swoyambhunath - The oldest Buddhist Stupa in Kathmandu Valley, a beautiful abode for lots of monkeys thus also known as Monkey Temple, is also a perfect vantage point to see Kathmandu valley. Pashupatinath- A holy pilgrimage for Hindus and Hindu Crematorium, watch as the Hindu dead bodies are cremated in the most unique way in the world; we come across men with ash rubbed body, matted locks and dreaded look which is typical look of a Hindu Holy Men known as Sadhus.

We have our breakfast early in the morning and drive to the airport to take a Helicopter flight to Lukla, the gateway to Everest Region accompanied by your trekking guide. Once on the flight we can enjoy the stunning beauty of the rugged foothills that give way to the snowline of the majestic Himalaya. A lot of the world\'s highest mountains including Kanchenjunga III, Lhotse IV and Makalu V and many other snow capped mountains. After enjoying the adventurous flight for about 1 hour, we land in Lukla, an exceptionally beautiful mountain town in the Everest Region where we meet our porters and prepare for the walk of the day to Phakding, another mountain town. The descending walk leads us along the Dudh Koshi River and to Phakding village for the overnight stay.
The early start of the trek of the day takes you on mostly flat and gradual uphill trail along the Dudh Koshi River up to Hilary suspension bridge. From this point your first steep uphill walk on the Everest trail starts which takes you to an extraordinarily beautiful town of Namche, famously known as Namche Bazaar. On the way to Namche you can enjoy the view of some the Himalayan peaks including Thamserku, Tabuche, Cholatsem, Khumbila – Sacred Mountain which protects the Khumbu region and many other mountains. Get yourself immersed in the beauty of local Sherpa and Buddhist culture, take pictures of yaks, take in the spirituality from the prayer flags along the trail and many more just reach the destination for today to enjoy the more majestic view of Kongde, Kusum Kangri and Thamserku.
A stopover day in Namche for acclimatization. Hike to Everest view point for about two hours uphill and enjoy the view of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Amadablam and many other Himalayan peaks. Hike down to Namche and spend rest of the day exploring Namche Bazaar enjoying the local atmosphere.
Munch mountain breakfast early in the morning and start the trek of the day to Tyangboche. Initial part of the walk today is on a mountain flat and downhill trails to Phungi Thanga for about four hours. From there another steep walk for about another two and half hours to take you to the famous Tyangboche. Once you are in Tyangboche, never miss the opportunity to visit an ancient Tyangboche monastery where you can see the footprint of Milarepa, a famous ancient Tibetan yogi and poet from the Kagyupa sect.
Pave your trail through Diboche, crossing Imja Khola to Pangboche and to Dingboche – today’s destination. As you walk on the Nepali flat – sometimes up and sometimes down, enjoy the enchanting view of the snow capped mountains which is luring you even closer to the Everest. The view and the fresh mountain air is enough to make you forget about your tiredness. Engage yourself in the observation of the incredible beauty of the Himalayan atmostp here. Instead of Dingboche we can also go to Pheriche as Pheriche have better choice of Lodges.
At this altitude, the human body needs time to adjust to the environment so take your day to acclimatize to the high altitude climate. Rather than just sitting around, we encourage you to attempt one of the two hikes we recommend. The short and best option is to ascend the hill immediately behind Dingboche which takes about four hours to reach the top. The view from the top will just blow your mind. Your four hours effort to reach the top will be eventually rewarded , back to Dingboche and stay there. Instead of Dingboche we can also go to Pheriche as Pheriche have better choice of Lodges.
Be thrilled with additional mountain views as you walk on your pace along the Himalayan trail. Enjoying and integrating the mountain atmosphere into your life, you are heading yet another count of miles towards the famous base camp of the world’s tallest peak. The view is just a catalyst to take you to the Base camp. Communicate and listen to your body and go slow. After observing the memorials for the mountaineers at Dughla pass finally you reach another beautiful mountain village of Lobuche for the overnight stay.
Today is a long day as we walk to Gorakshep, check into lodge, have lunch and walk to the Base Camp and return back to Gorakshep for stay over. The most exciting thing about today is that you are going to be at the base camp. Walking along the Khumbu glacier – the highest situated glacier in the world, and crossing the Changri glacier, we walk ahead towards Gorakshep After the lunch at Gorakshep, we walk to the Everest Base Camp, enjoy the view, take lots of pictures, selfies. Return back to Gorakshep for the overnight stay.
Very early morning wake up to go to the highest point of the trek, Kalapatthar – a magnificent view point to the world’s tallest Everest and several other mountains in the Himalayan range. It takes about two to Three hours to reach the top. After the sunrise, hike down to Gorakshep; have your breakfast later walk down to Lobuche or Pheriche and fly back to Kathmandu by helicopter.

Everest Base Camp Trek, April 2018
This was the trip of a lifetime for me, this company Earthbound went above what I expected! I would not hesitate to use them again. Before the trip all questions were answered promptly, the guides were professional and knowledgeable.

Unforgettable Everest Base Camp Trek We just completed a 12-day trip to Everest Base Camp with Earthbound Expeditions. We have been on a number of trekking vacations, but this was by far the most amazing trip. The Himalayan mountain range was stunning and humbling. The Nepalese people, particularly those in the Khumbu region, were incredibly kind and hospitable. And of course, the food was delicious. We look forward to returning to Nepal again in the future and will definitely be using Earthbound Expeditions. Special thanks to the following individuals who made this a memorable, safe and joyful experience: (1) Rajan: Earthbound’s incredibly responsive and thoughtful leader. He patiently answered all of our questions about the trip prior to our arrival and accommodated many of our requests without question. He even picked us up at the airport and met with us again the day we came back from Base Camp. (2) Kumar: our Kathmandu city guide who shared his knowledge of Nepal’s rich history and culture by taking us to some World Heritage sites in Kathmandu. (3) Raju: our wonderful Kathmandu driver who ferried us safely back and forth to various destinations in Kathmandu and joined us our final night for a Nepalese cultural show. (4) Tiger: our wonderful porter who was never without a smile. He was kind and funny and always made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable on our trek. He was with us every step of the way and thoughtfully checked in to see if we were tired along the way. (5) Shreeram: last, but not least, our fearless guide. Shree was incredibly knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with. He answered our many questions about food safety, high altitude sickness and hot showers with good humor and patience. He made sure we were hiking at a good pace to allow for altitude adjustment and shared his love of dal bhat with us. Most importantly, he instilled in us a deep appreciation for Nepal’s beauty, diversity and resilience.

12-Day Heli Trek to Everest Base Camp We completed the 12-Day Heli Trek to Everest Base Camp. Earthbound Expeditions made sure we were well prepared for our journey ahead, providing us with the best possible accommodations along the way. Our experience in Kathmandu, learning about the Hindu and Buddhist Cultures was remarkable. The trek to Everest Base Camp was truly about the journey, the relationships we built along the way, not to mention the relief and excitement we felt taking the helicopter back down the mountain. I can't wait to take another trip with Earthbound Expeditions, hopefully making my first ice climb to above 6,000 meters. Thank you to Shree, Abishek, Jiban, and Don for all of your help, expertise, and friendship along the way; I hope to see you again soon!
Unforgettable EBC trek Nepal My fiancé and I completed the EBC trek with Earthbound Expeditions using Helicopter also and have nothing but extraordinary things to say about the whole experience! For months leading up to our departure, Rajan answered all of our many inquiries and made sure we were all set for a life changing journey. Once in Kathmandu, we met our wonderful guide Gopal! We truly felt in the best of hands with Gopal who so generously shared the amazing Nepali culture with us throughout our trek. He ensured we were always comfortable, ate enough, rested enough and walked slowly to ensure we make it all the way to EBC. We cannot thank him enough for helping us achieve one of our dreams. And a big thank you to our porter Kancha! We truly had a dream team!! Looking forward to returning to this incredible country for another trek with Earthbound!!

Really happy.. “This company Earthbound is amazing, we arranged to go to Everest base camp through them. They were so professional and organised the whole trip, they looked after us at each stage even after when we planned to go to Pokhara for a sort break after our Everest trek. They arranged flights to hotel accomodation, transport so we didn't have to worry about it. Nothing was a big thing for them. Thank you to Rajan, Badri and all the team for making our dream come true. I would definitely be going back to Annpurna and would go through them to arrange everything for me. Giving you 5*s.. All the best..” from UK.
Everest Base Camp Nepal Heli Trek 12 Days... My life dream was to reach Mountain Everest after climbing Kilimanjaro mountain in Africa. The dream I had for many years became true when I landed at Kathmandu Airport and meet beautiful people from Earthbound Expeditions. The trek itself was very wonderful and organized professionally, great Sherpas, great mountain scenery and great value. It was an everlasting memory provided by this great team for more than two weeks in the great Everest mountain. I recommend this team of Rajan for their great help during my trip to Everest and valuable information they provided to us which contributed a lot to the success of our trek to Everest. For sure I'll come back to climb this Mountain with my family and grand kids when they grow well and we will climb another trek again with Earthbound Expeditions. Thanks and highly recommended.

Excellent Nepali service Rajan and his team provided us with great service and comfort during our two weeks time in Nepal. Arjun, Gokul and Rajan were our guides and went beyond any of our expectations. With expertise, knowledge and humor, they showed us the best of Nepali culture. We have much to learn from you. The treks were excellent and well planned for our large group. I also recommend the Helicopter trips to Everest Base Camp area.

Complete Nepal Experience Rajan (Earthbound Expeditions CEO) and Arjun (our Sherpa and leisure guide), we’re EXCELLENT! You will not find anyone better for your Nepal adventure! They are friendly, patient, caring, thorough, and simply top-notch. We spent almost a month in Nepal and they cared for us 24-7. We were able to go to Everest Base Camp, Chitwan National Forest, Pokhara, and many other places! Their drivers are the best around and are very safe. They will get you to delicious and safe eateries, and get you the best overall experience—enjoyable, safe, and always on time. Hire these guys! You won’t find any better!

Satisfying adventure to Everest Base Camp in winter Trekking to EBC in winter is challenging; We made it with the experienced and professional guidance from Earthbound Expeditions. Guide Arjun was dedicated to support our trekking from planning, preparation, along the way, till completion. We didn't need to worry about anything other than to enjoy the splendid view of the world peaks, amazing adventure!
Everest base camp with a 12 year old My 12 year old son and I did the Everest base camp trek and Chitwan safari October 2019. To make things even more difficult, my son had snapped both bones in his arm in half just below the wrist 3 weeks before we started trekking. Rajan was absolutely amazing from planning the trek to making accommodations for us while we were in Nepal. He always responded in a timely fashion. We went for a month, and told Rajan everything we wanted to do and the next day I had a full month itinerary planned out. When I suggested a few changes, Rajan made them without hesitation. Our guide Bharat was very knowledgeable about everything in the Everest region and took great care of us and our needs. He kept a watchful eye on us and adjusted our schedule everyday based on our performance/health. We went by ourselves instead of a large group which was the best choice for us. There were many things we wanted to stop and do/see along the way and Bharat helped facilitate all of it, something we couldn't do in a group. After comparing prices, going solo with Earthbound was MUCH cheaper than most other companies where you have to go in large groups. And after seeing and talking to many of these groups, we also realized we had FAR superior service than any of the other groups. If you're planning on doing any activities of any kind in Nepal and want some direction, you HAVE to go with Earthbound. You won't regret it.
