Trek to Everest Base Camp and Return by Helicopter to Lukla, 2024-2025

10 Days, Kathmandu To Kathmandu

Experience the stunning Mt. Everest Himalayan ranges on the 10-day trek itinerary, an alternative to the traditional 14-15-day trek for Everest Base camp treks.

The 10-day Everest Base Camp trek allows you to experience the stunning scenery of the Himalayan Ranges, immerse in Sherpa culture, visit religious sites, and explore diverse nature.

The Everest Base Camp trek is a 10-day journey that begins in Kathmandu, includes a helicopter ride from Gorak Shep to Lukla, and ends with a regular flight back to Kathmandu from Lukla. The helicopter ride saves 3 days, allowing for a limited yet wonderful experience of the Himalayas.

The Everest Base camp trek starts in Kathmandu and goes through Lukla, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, and finally reaches the famous viewpoints of Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. The trek ends at the base camp, and on the 10th day, you will be back in Kathmandu.

When you join our Everest Base Camp Trek program, you’ll have the support of well-trained and experienced local guides and porters flying with the best quality helicopter from base camp to Lukla. As a local trekking agency, we prioritize hiring local people with the best qualifications. Our 10-day trekking program offers an unforgettable experience while empowering the local community.
