You will be taken to the airport early in the morning to fly to Lukla. The 40-minute journey offers spectacular views of the mountains until you land at Lukla (2800m), the gateway to Everest Base Camp Trek. Air routes are considered magnificent as the high peaks look spectacular from a distance. You can enjoy tea in Lukla while our guide divides the luggage for porters. The trek begins through a well-off Sherpa community. The trail will take you through several tributaries. The magnificent views will reveal nature's beauty as you reach the small village of Phakding (2650m). You can relax, take a short walk to a nearby monastery, or stroll around the area to get an idea of what it's like overnight.

Note: Due to Kathmandu airport maintenance and air traffic, the flight to Lukla sometimes departs from the Manthali Airport in Ramechhap. The road trip takes about 4 hours and starts early in the morning, around 3 am. You can avoid traffic by driving early and still making the flight.

We take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once-vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come across the Indian Army mountaineers’ memorials. The path from here can be misleading; hence, we will have to follow our lead diligently, Sherpa. The walk is strenuous due to the thin air at the high altitude. We pass through rocky dunes, moraine, and streams before reaching the Everest Base Camp. Upon reaching the Everest Base Camp, we see tents of mountaineers that stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. We get back to Gorak Shep for a good night’s rest. Overnight in Gorak Shep.

Early in the morning, you will trek to KalaPatthar. This is one of the most famous vantage points in Nepal's Everest region. The sunrises, expansive views of the Everest region mountains and Mt. Everest. From KalaPatthar, you can see Mount Everest as golden rays of the sun fall on the sparkling snow. KalaPatthar is where you will spend a few hours before heading down to Gorakshep. Flying above the Everest region, you will be picked up in Gorakshep by a helicopter and taken to Kathmandu. During the journey, you can enjoy incredible views of the Himalayas. You will also see the Khumbu Glaciers and Sagarmatha National Park. After arriving at Kathmandu airport, you will be transferred to your hotel.

Note: The helicopter flight is on a sharing basis. It’s not a private charter flight. If you want a private ride, please Contact us for the price. Please note that in altitudes above 4,500 meters, the helicopters can land but can’t take off with more than 3 passengers. So, if there are more than 3 people, the helicopter will take 3 people in the first shuttle and drop them off at a designated point below 4,500 meters. The fact is usually the village of Pheriche. Then, in the second shuttle, the helicopter will transfer the remaining passengers from Gorakshep; it will stop at the designated point to pick up the first three passengers and take all of them to Lukla. The helicopter ride from Gorakshep to Lukla takes about 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the weather and the number of passengers.

Useful Info

Kathmandu- Lukla- Kathmandu Flight Delay Info:

The weather in mountain areas can be unpredictable, affecting flights to and from Lukla. When the weather is good, the Twin Otter planes are reliable. However, flights may be delayed or canceled due to bad weather or technical issues. We can arrange a helicopter to ensure you stay on schedule in case of flight cancellations or long delays. Helicopters can fly in lower visibility than Twin Otters, meeting the Nepal Civil Aviation rules. You can pay for the helicopter flight in US dollars, credit cards, or traveler’s cheques at our Kathmandu office. We provide a receipt for reimbursement from your travel insurance company. The cost for the helicopter flight is $500 per person, or you can opt for a Helicopter Charter at a rate of $3000. We recommend arriving in Kathmandu one day before the trek to allow time for purchasing trekking gear and adjusting to the time difference. Additionally, allocating extra days after the tour will help minimize the risk of missing your international flight in case of any trekking difficulties or flight cancellations caused by severe weather conditions in Lukla.

Acclimatization And High-Altitude Sickness

The acclimatization planned during the trip helps trekkers adapt to the environment with less oxygen. Our body needs time to adjust to higher altitudes. Rushing to the higher elevation without acclimatization may result in acute mountain sickness (AMS), which could be fatal. The trekkers may suffer from AMS above 2,400m/7,875ft as the amount of oxygen becomes less and less with the increase in elevation.

We can categorize AMS into three categories with its symptoms. The trekker suffering from normal AMS feels giddy, gets headaches, has Nausea, is out of breath, and is suggested not to worry as it disappears after the body gets used to less oxygen. Likewise, trekkers suffering from mild AMS show symptoms of dizziness, muscular pain, insomnia, headache, vomiting, loss of appetite, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath. Mild AMS can be treated with anti-headache medicines.

A person suffering from serious AMS shows heightened symptoms, including shortness of breath, even while resting. The trekker with serious symptoms can barely walk, and fluids may start building up in the lungs. The trekker having serious AMS has to be taken to a lower altitude immediately.

 

Advanced Cases Of AMS

If AMS is not treated in time, it can be life-threatening and lead to edema, a condition in which fluid accumulates in the body's tissues. Following are the two serious altitude sicknesses caused at high altitudes.

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE)

In HACE, the brain gets swollen, which can lead to coma and even death. Its symptoms are paralysis on one side of the body, bladder dysfunction, fatigue, bowel dysfunction, loss of coordination, and confusion. Descend to a lower altitude as soon as possible to prevent the worsening of the condition.

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)

Fluid accumulates in the lungs, which also increases the capillary pressure. Its symptoms include severe shortness of breath at rest, dry cough that later leads to producing frothy pink sputum, and fatigue. Important Note: Severe cases of AMS are rare. All our Adventure Club Trek guides know the symptoms of AMS and can handle it with care. We prioritize acclimatization, talk about the use of Diamox beforehand, and counsel all our trekkers on the risk and preventive factors before and during the trip. Your safety is our main concern.

First-Aid Kit

Our guides and porters are equipped with a basic first-aid kit during regular treks. A comprehensive first-aid kit is compulsory for expeditions that take on isolated and off-the-beaten trekking paths; the same goes for climbing expeditions.

  • A bandage in case of sprains
  • Plasters/ Band-aids and antiseptic ointments for simple cuts
  • Iodine or water filter (optional) instead of buying bottled mineral water
  • Moleskin/Second skin in case of blisters.
  • Aspirin/Paracetamol -painkiller.
  • Oral rehydration salts-Nava Jeevan or Jeevan Jal (orange-flavored ORS)
  • The broad-spectrum antibiotic (norfloxacin or ciprofloxacin).
  • Anti-diarrhea medication (antibiotic).
  • Diarrheal stopper (Imodium - optional).
  • Diamox 250/500mg (for altitude sickness).
  • Gel hand cleaner/sanitizer.

Note: We can add medical supplies per the trekkers' unique needs to the first-aid kit given above.

Our Leader And Staff

It needs experienced, highly skilled, courteous, and helpful team members to make any trip successful. Our guides are experienced and licensed professionals chosen based on their knowledge, skills, and expertise in leading in the Himalayan region. All our guides can speak English fluently, while some have informal learning in additional foreign languages. Our team includes some supporting members, especially local Sherpas who have adequate knowledge about their cultural diversity, ecosystem, history, geography, and regional flora and fauna.

 

Experience Required

Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek suitable for passionate walkers who can walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack. We may need to walk for 7 to 8 hours on some days. Walking at higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking at lower altitudes; however, if we are in excellent health with average physical fitness, a positive attitude, and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek. Exercising and jogging regularly is a good idea to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset, but no technical skill is required for this trip. Before booking the trek, participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should inform Adventure Club Trek. We also recommend you consult your doctor(s) before the trip.

 

Best Time To Travel

Autumn (Sept -Nov) and Spring (March-May) are the best seasons for the Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is sunny and warm, with outstanding views. Trekking in Summer or Monsoon (June to Aug) will be affected by rain, but a summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.

 

Visa And Entry Procedures

Everyone needs a visa to enter Nepal except Indian nationals. Citizens of the SAARC nations like Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Bhutan do not require a visa for 30 days. Fortunately, getting a Nepal visa is an easy process. Tourist visas are issued on arrival at the international airport and official overland entry points. However, travelers from Afghanistan, Iraq, Cameroon, Ghana, Somalia, Swaziland, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Liberia are not issued visas on arrival. After arriving at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will find electronic kiosks to assist with your visa processing. After taking the completed form and paying the visa fee, you must stay in the long immigration queue for your visa on arrival.

Visitors can now apply for the online visa within 15 days of their arrival date in Nepal. For this, you will need your Nepal hotel address and a digital passport-sized photo to be uploaded to the online application. After submitting the form online, you need to print out the confirmation page, which has to be furnished at the immigration section in Kathmandu airport, along with your passport and the required visa fee. 

Tourists can also apply for a Nepali visa at the local Nepali Embassy or Consulate in their respective countries. Or, they can even mail their visa application to the office near their location, but well ahead of time to allow sufficient processing time. Nepal visa information for all categories of travelers and their correspondence cost is convenient so for more information and contact details of the Nepali Embassies and Consulate worldwide.

Whichever way you enter Nepal, you will be given a 15/30/90-day visa per your requirement. The general Nepal tourist visa fee on arrival for multiple entries is:

15 days – US$30, 30 days – US$50, and 90days – US$125

Tourist visas can be extended for 150 days a year, and these extensions are granted only at the Department of Immigration offices in Pokhara and Kathmandu. For more information on Nepal visas, visit our visa information page.

 

Travel Insurance

To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment, and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities you will undertake during your stay in Nepal, such as trekking and climbing. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof that you can pay for it. Adventure Club Trek has an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect your money once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism, or you may need help to settle a claim.

 

Electricity, WIFI, And Battery Recharge

During your trek on the Everest region, electricity is available to recharge your phones, laptops, and iPads from micro-hydropower and solar panels on a paying basis. As for Wi-Fi, there are no hotspots along the trekking trail after Namche. Starbucks Coffee in Lukla and Everest Bakery in Namche are the only two places offering free Wi-Fi. At other places upwards, you need to pay for internet services, which increases gradually with the altitude.

 

Communication On Trek 

On the Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Trekking for 7 Days in Nepal, the internet service will be available at lodges with some extra service charge. You can contact your family and friends from the guesthouses, but as we reach high altitude, the communication will be through the phone for safety purposes. We communicate with all our valuable clients through the team leader at least once daily to ensure you are fine and enjoying the trip. The Adventure Club Trek office in Kathmandu will constantly contact you for help you may need during the trek. Depending on the network you use, there could be a poor signal to the network before the high altitude. Upon your request, we can provide you with a separate local SIM card for a better network. Many places have WIFI service available at an extra cost.

 

Group Size And Team Composition 

We always form a small group of like-minded people to give them a wonderful and perceptive travel experience. It provides opportunities to interact and share in a fun-filled environment when out in the wilderness. Generally, our travel group comprises a maximum of 16 members. We need at least two participants to run our fixed departure dates. For private trips, the number of group members does not apply. We always strive to form a team, ensuring members are comfortable with one another.

 

Tipping 

Tipping is optional in Nepal as most services include a service charge. However, if you want to express gratitude, you are free to tip drivers and hotel staff. People usually welcome such generosity. When tipping your porters or trekking leaders, use your discretion as per the quality of the services. Tip money does not form a part of our employees' wages. However, you can use tipping to show appreciation for excellent service at the end of the trip
