A perfect trek if you do not have the time to do the regular trek to the Everest base camp. This trek is designed to hike to EBC and fly out in a chartered helicopter. This Everest Base Camp trekking package has been designed to offer views uniquely different from what other trekking companies provide. We do this by taking trekkers to the base of one of the most beautiful mountains in the region – Amadablam. Trekkers rarely visit the base camp at Amadablam, and the hike up to Amadablam base camp takes you along the tree line into a high altitude alpine forest and through summer pastures with stunning views of the Maha Langgur range. This cannot be seen from the main trail to Everest Base Camp. We also bypass the congested Tengboche Monastery area, and trekkers stay at the village of Pangboche, where the “responsible” in our adventures brings business to the lodge owners here who are in need of the income.
This trek follows in the famous footsteps of Everest’s greatest climbing parties, once above the tree line; the scenery is stark but spectacular. In the distance, set with Ama Dablam, Everest and other mountains behind, we can view the incredible monastery at Tengboche in a unique setting.
Our goal is to climb Kala Pathar (5,545 m), for the ultimate view of Mt. Everest, where the spirit of this mountain legend can be captured and savored. Your experienced Group Leader and assistant Guides make your health and welfare a priority throughout this trek while providing everything possible for a safe and memorable adventure. Flying out by helicopter also saves you several days of walking back down the same trail, making the end of this adventure all the more relaxing.
