Everest Helicopter Tour

  • Everest Helicopter Tour

Overview

Highlights Of The Tour

  • The Monastery, rebuilt very recently, is a "must" for your visit.
  • The serenity and peace of its neighborhood and surroundings will give you an impression of a harmonious blend of people and place.
  • The fragility of the environment in its delicateness will not escape your attention.
  • This is your flying visit to the neighborhood of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.

In Nepal, going to remote corners of the Himalaya is not a problem for visitors. In fact, it is a pleasurable and exciting activity. How? By helicopter!. Since the whirlybird needs only a small landing space, it can be hired to take tourists to whichever destination and at whatever time they want to go. No wonder chartering a helicopter for sight-seeing has become a popular tourist activity in Nepal.

There are two types of helicopters currently operating in the private sector. The most frequently seen is the powerful Russian made MI-17. This is a big bird, capable of transporting 22 passengers or four tons of cargo. MI-17's can reach altitudes well in excess of 5.000 m and have been known to land at Everest Base Camp. They offer excellent utility and reliability under extreme conditions.

The other craft is the smaller and more maneuverable French made Ecureuil AS35OB series. This sports car of the rotor world is smooth and quiet and offers excellent visibility. Wide bodied and comfortable, it can carry five passengers and the newest models can land at 6.100 m. They are thus ideal for Himalayan sight-seeing and intimate charters.
