    A shared Everest Base Camp (EBC) landing helicopter tour is a more affordable way to experience the stunning Everest region while sharing the journey with other travelers. This tour typically begins in Kathmandu and takes you to EBC, with a stop at Kala Patthar for unparalleled views of Mount Everest and the surrounding peaks.

    Everest Helicopter Landing Tour Sharing Basis

    Here is a comprehensive overview of the shared EBC helicopter tour:


    Departure from Kathmandu: Your shared helicopter tour starts with a flight from Kathmandu towards the Everest region. The flight duration is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour before reaching the first stop, Lukla.
    Refueling at Lukla: A brief stop at Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region, is made for refueling the helicopter. This stop usually lasts around 10-15 minutes.
    Flying to Everest Base Camp/Kala Patthar: After refueling, the helicopter will fly towards EBC and Kala Patthar. Kala Patthar, at an elevation of 5,643 meters (18,513 feet), provides awe-inspiring panoramic views of Mount Everest and the neighboring peaks.
    Landing at Kala Patthar: Due to environmental concerns and regulations, helicopters are generally not allowed to land directly at EBC. Instead, they land at Kala Patthar, where you'll have around 10-15 minutes to take pictures and enjoy the views. Keep in mind that the time spent here is limited due to the high altitude and thin air.
    Breakfast with a view (optional): After Kala Patthar, the helicopter may fly to a luxury hotel, such as Hotel Everest View in Syangboche or Yeti Mountain Home in Kongde, where you can enjoy breakfast with a spectacular view of Everest (additional cost may apply).
    Return to Kathmandu: After the breakfast stop or directly from Kala Patthar, the helicopter will fly back to Kathmandu, concluding your shared Everest Base Camp landing helicopter tour.


    The cost of a shared EBC helicopter tour typically ranges from USD 800 to USD 1,200 per person. This cost generally includes the helicopter flight, fuel costs, an experienced pilot, and oxygen support if required.


    A shared Everest Base Camp landing helicopter tour usually takes around 4-5 hours, including stops at Lukla for refueling, Kala Patthar for panoramic views, and an optional breakfast stop.

    Best Time

    The best time for a shared EBC helicopter tour is during the spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) seasons when the weather is stable, and visibility is optimal. However, with careful planning and flexibility, helicopter tours may still be possible during the winter and summer months.

    Important Considerations

    • Due to the high altitude, there is a risk of altitude sickness. It's essential to stay hydrated, move slowly, and follow the advice of the pilot.
    • Dress in layers, as temperatures can vary throughout the journey. Wear comfortable shoes and bring sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat to protect yourself from the sun.
    • Keep in mind that mountain weather can be unpredictable, and the tour may be delayed or canceled due to adverse weather conditions. Always consult with us and consider the weather forecast before booking a shared helicopter tour.
    • Be prepared to share the helicopter with other passengers, which may require some flexibility and cooperation during the journey. The maximum capacity of a helicopter typically ranges from 4 to 6 passengers, depending on the aircraft type and weight restrictions.
