Why is it called Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return? 

Because of Everest Base Camp Trek with helicopter return Tour is one of the best and most popular packages in the Everest region. It will take you to the world’s highest Base camp of Everest day-by-day trekking and the helicopter presents in a high altitude for the tour. It is risky when you will spend more time there is more possible to get high altitude sickness. And another thing is many trekkers will be looking for an option after reaching the Everest Base Camp. Most of the people who don’t want to trek back will be happy to be back by helicopter tour rather than trek back to Lukla.

Why helicopter will be not land at Everest Base Camp? 

Everest Base Camp is in the beside of Khumbu glacier and icefall. There wouldn’t be any chance to land a  helicopter due to the expedition groups of Everest in spring and lack of space for landing a helicopter.  Another main reason is the base camp of Everest is not good to see the views, the best viewpoint is  Kalapatthar so that not landing at base camp. If you land at Kala Patthar you will be able to see Everest,  Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and many more other high mountains of the Everest region.  Everest Base Camp will be in the bottom of the mountains. So helicopter tours will want to provide the best adventure trip of your life.

What is a helicopter shuttle for the Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour? 

Every helicopter flight has a weight limit. Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with landing is high altitude helicopter flight tour in the mountain. And the EBC helicopter tour will be up to 250 kg weight limit due to the high altitude this is the reason only 3 people each flight will be touring in the helicopter flight (over 4400m). So the Everest base camp helicopter tour has to manage the weight limit. We have to do 2 shuttle flights from Pheriche (4370M) if there are more than 3 people due to high altitude risk management.

Is there any hidden charge that will be added during the tour? 

No, there won’t be any hidden charge added during the Everest Base Camp Trek Helicopter return. Because this is the 8 days trip in total with Return Back by helicopter tour.
