Seeing Mt. Everest up close and reaching its Base Camp falls on the bucket list of many people, but all people may not like the arduous trek up the base camp of this world's tallest mountain, Mt. Everest, 8,848-meter (29,029-foot). Although the journey to Everest is well worth taking on foot, those who don’t want the strenuous walk and who don’t have time can enjoy Everest. It’s the spectacular scenario of the neighboring hundreds of snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas on our Everest Heli Tour.
On the Everest Heli tour organized by Icicles Adventure, you will take a helicopter ride above the majestic Himalayan mountain range, Everest base camp, and then land at the famous Kalapatthar viewpoint, which is located at an altitude of 5,545 meters. At the base of the highest mountain on earth, this stunning location is truly like no other place on earth.

The mountains glow with the early morning sun’s rays golden, making the whole scenario charismatic.
