What makes the Everest Base Camp Heli Trek amazing?
Instead of trekking all the way down to Lukla (the same trail), we will take a helicopter flight from Gorekshep to Kathmandu. Explore the best alternative to the standard Everest Base Camp Trek.
This package is designed for those with limited time to explore Everest. You will avoid the same return trek to Lukla because you will be flying to Kathmandu from Gorekshep on a helicopter. You won't have to worry about frequent delays or cancellations in Lukla due to bad weather. Magical Summits takes care everything for a comfortable trip.
