This Heli tour to Kalapattar is for those who want to avoid long and tiring Everest Base Camp Trek and those who are confined by the time but still passionate to see Mt. Everest, the top of the world.
Kalapattar ( 5555m) is the highest point to witness incredible sunrise and mountain views in Everest region. It is also the best mountain viewpoint in Everest region in Nepal. The Kala Patthar (5555 m), meaning 'black rock' in Nepali, is a mountain in the Nepalese Himalayas near Mount Everest Base Camp just above Gorekhshep. It appears as a big brown bump below the impressive south face of Pumori (7,161 m/23,494 ft). Many trekkers in theEverest region attempt to summit Kala Patthar, since it provides the most accessible point to view Mt. Everest . It is interesting fact that we can not see Everest from Everest Base Camp. The views from almost anywhere on Kala Patthar of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are spectacular. During our Mount Everest special Helicopter tour, we make a stop at Kalapattar and give time to enjoy the Himalayan scenery and capture the images of Mount Everest and other world highest peaks in their mind and camera. Your eyes and the cameras will be stunned to capturing such marvelous views of the giant summit including the top of the world, Mt. Everest.
