About Everest for Breakfast

Early morning at 6:30 am take a spectacular helicopter flight from Kathmandu airport to Lukla in the Everest area.

Everest View hotel, sublime breakfast will be served by our Sherpa staffs. You sit out and marvel at the panoramic view of the Himalayas with the unmistakable pyramid tip of Mt. Everest at its glory. Apart from Everest, you'll be rewarded with the majestic views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Cho-Oyo and AmaDablam and the magical Khumbu Valley.

Nepal has 8 of the 10 highest mountains in the world. The Himalayan Region contains 1300+ peaks that are over 6,000 meters. Numerous gorges, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, flora and fauna and exotic animals add in the beauty of Nepal's Himalayan region.

In fact, Everest is situated within the Sagamartha National Park, home to unique wildlife and Sherpa Buddhist communities. For many people, the trek itself is the destination. But for some of us, we are not so able to spend the time or energy to hike for two weeks to reach Everest Base Camp.

With high altitudes to sustain but many ups and downs along the journey, this hiking is certainly not suitable for everyone. If you're not physically or mentally strong, then a long-distance high-altitude walk might not be a good idea for you.

Highlights

  • You will enjoy the joyful Helicopter flight from Kathmandu to the base of the world's tallest mountain.
  • You can have the privilege of landing at Kala Patthar, 5545 meters in an hour.
  • You will arrive at the Everest Base Camp, without a drop of sweat or lethargy, with a comfortable flight.
  • Breakfast at the Everest View Hotel, one of the finest high altitude hotels in the world.
  • You'll see some of the best mountain views in the world.
  • No need to trek for days to get to the Everest Base Camp. You can wave to the hikers far below as you enjoy the aerial view of the area.

Itinerary

    7:50 am – 8:35 am Visit to the Everest View Point / Breakfast

    As the helicopter is flying at very high altitudes of over 5,500m, we need to reduce the weight. If you're in a group of 4 or 5 people (the usual maximum for any trip), you'll be divided into two.

    While one group enjoys breakfast, the other will fly to the Everest Viewpoint: Kalapatthar (5,545m).

    In fact, the human body is not made to transition from 1400m Kathmandu to more than 5000m+ in a few of hours! While this trip is completely safe to do.

    Yet, it's long enough to get some great photos, videos and memories! The close-up view of the Mount Everest and the surrounding mountains is the highlight of this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

    8:40 am – 9:35 am Return flight to Kathmandu

    With Khumbu Glacier and Khumbu Icefall, Tengboche Monastery, Everest Base Camp (EBC) and Mount Everest below and around you, not to mention dozens of other mountains, your helicopter will bring you safely back to Kathmandu.

    9:35 am – 10 am Drive back to your Hotel

    It's hard to imagine that you've returned to your hotel in about four hours after getting a very close view of the highest mountain in the world! We know that you are too excited to sleep and enjoy a cup of coffee while remembering this magical adventure and posting your videos online!

    Yes, we have created a sharing group so that all solo, couple or private trip can contact us and join our existing group. For a fixed departure there should be at least 5 persons. The price per person can vary with the number of people.

    Just for a short time, just to be there and catch a view of at least 10 to 20 minutes, which is enough time for you to enjoy the beautiful sights and scenery of the stunning views and glaciers. Due to the high altitude threat, no longer time is recommended.

    If the weather seems unfavorable, we will delay and fly the following morning at no extra charge. It's unlikely that the weather will change quickly enough to keep us on Everest once we get there. The helicopters that we use are also used for high altitude rescue with experienced pilots.
