Mt Everest Trek- ways to see Everest 

Trekking to Mount Everest Base Camp is one of the most popular and iconic treks in the world. Located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, this trek takes you through stunning landscapes, and Sherpa villages, and offers breathtaking views of the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest (known as Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma in Tibetan).

First, let’s talk about the Everest base camp tour in detail.

Everest Base Camp Trek

This is probably the busiest and most celebrated mountain trekking route in the world. These 12 days of trek near Everest are going to change your life forever. Yearly, more than 10,000 trekkers complete the beautiful trek to Everest base camp. This tea house trekking route is moderately difficult with 12 to 15 km of distance each day (6 to 8 hours of walking every day). The highest altitude during the trek is Kalapatthar (black-stone) a point that lies next to the base camp.

However, trekking to Everest base camp is not the only way you can witness the majestic beauty of Everest. The Everest base camp trek is very long tiresome; also equally expensive. This is why Himalayan Master offers a wide range of options for everyone who wishes to view Everest but doesn’t have enough time for such long treks in the Himalayan.

Popular treks in a Sagarmatha region other than the Everest base camp trek are listed below.

Everest View Trek

Everest view trek is a 7 days long trek in the Khumbu region that allows you to explore the lower altitude of Everest while having stunning views of many Himalayan ranges. This is a rather cheap and comfortable trick with luxury accommodation and food throughout the trek. The trek begins with a flight to Lukla and you will only have to trek for four days to witness the Majestic Mountains. The major highlight of the Everest view trek by Himalayan Masters is a visit to Namche Bazaar and a hike to Everest View Hotel, one of the highest-altitude hotels in the world. We shall also visit Khumjung village to witness their popular Sherpa culture before flying back to Kathmandu. Rather than the long trek days with 7 to 8 hours of walking each day, Everest View Trek gives you a calm experience with great options for food and accommodation.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tours

Do you want something comfortable and luxurious while witnessing the most spectacular views of the mountains? Do you know that Everest is less than one hour of aerial distance from Kathmandu the capital city of Nepal?

Now, imagine witnessing the entire Khumbu region from an altitude higher than the mountains themselves. And you will not just fly above the mountains, you can also land the helicopter at different spots, just to view the majestic Mountain from different angles. The longest landing will be at Kalapatthar, which is the best viewpoint of Everest with two other landings at Lukla and Everest View Hotel. You will even enjoy a damn great breakfast at Everest view hotel while capturing beautiful pictures before flying back to Kathmandu in another hour.


Is the Everest base camp helicopter tour very expensive?

Surprisingly, the Everest base camp helicopter is cheaper than the actual Everest base camp trek. Since the accommodation and food during the trek are really expensive and you also need to take a domestic flight to Lukla, the cost turns out to be very high. On the other hand, the Everest helicopter tour is only a few hours long and you can witness equally beautiful views at a cheaper price. The best deals for Everest helicopter tours start at $1000 and can go up to $1300.

Is the Everest base camp helicopter tour safe?

Yes, we assure you that helicopter tours to Everest are a very safe option to witness the Himalayas. We operate at the international level with helicopters in a really good condition and experience guide. You can read the details about the types of helicopters that we will use and the price in a full Everest base camp helicopter tour here.

What is the best season for trekking in Everest?

Autumn, which means September/October/November is the clearest month for trekking in the mountains. The sky is clear and the overall region opens up to show the most beautiful views. The spring is also a good season with many blooms of wildflowers. You can do the Everest View trek and Everest base camp helicopter tour in winter and summer as well. However, the actual Everest base camp trick is not possible in summer and winter due to monsoons and a thick level of snow.

To embark on the Everest Base Camp trek, you can either organize it independently or through a reputable trekking agency. The latter is often recommended for safety and logistical reasons. Always consult with experienced trekkers or professionals before planning your journey to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
