Trip Information

Everest heli sightseeing is the tour that gives you the opportunity to ride and have an up-close encounter with the highest mountain in the world.

The morning flight of 7 am takes you from the Tribhuvan International Airport towards the east flying parallel to the Himalayan range and finally reaches to the point from where a spectacular view of the Everest can be seen. Heli stops at Lukla for refueling and then flies towards Everest base camp.  You can have an aerial view of the famous Everest, Nuptse, Lotshe, Amadablam, Thamaserkhu, the Gokyo valley and the turquoise water of Gokyo Lake. On the way back from the Everest base camp and Gokyo, the Everest heli sightseeing tour takes you to one of the world’s highest hotel in Kongde for breakfast. You have about an hour for breakfast, to capture the best moments and enjoy the sight of truly glossy snow-capped mountain ranges. The helicopter soon takes over due to the altitude threat and you are ready to return back to Kathmandu. Throughout the Everest heli sightseeing tour, you will be flying close to Mt. Langtang and Jugal Himal on your way back, finally ending up with an aerial view of the entire Kathmandu valley.

Time Duration: 3 hrs. + 1 hr. (Ground time + Breakfast) – Depending on weather.

What makes this trip different ?

Ace the Himalaya works closely with and is one of the main supporters of local NGO Sambhav Nepal. We support them in a number of ways.

Ace the Himalaya donates up to 10% of its annual revenue to Sambhav Nepal’s projects which cover regular maintenance of school buildings, constructing toilets, rebuilding earthquake-affected houses and schools, and so on.

One of the major activities of Sambhav Nepal is the children sponsorship program, which is conducted with full collaboration with Ace the Himalaya and its sister organizations, Ace Holidays and Ace Xpeditions.

Partnership (Volunteering Program)
The Volunteering Program, devised by Ace the Himalaya and Sambhav Nepal, aims to mobilize teams of experts and interested individuals as an effective and economic measure in providing the human capital for education, health and community development in the villages of northern Gorkha district, western Nepal.

After the Earthquake of April 25, 2015, the Volunteering Program’s focus has been mobilizing the volunteers in various school and house rebuilding projects in the hard-hit Gorkha district.
