Yes, a two week trek to Everest Base Camp! As most people can only take a two week holiday at any one time, an Everest Base Camp two week vacation hasn't really been a possibility.....until now!!! By using a private helicopter the return to Kathmandu takes just minutes instead of several days trekking. So, this Everest Base Camp Trek fits nicely into a two week holiday. Great, if visiting EBC and Everest herself has always been your dream, but you've never quite been able to find the time. Mindful of the challenging trekking and the necessity to acclimatise to the high altitudes, you'll trek the standard trail up to EBC, but after visiting Base Camp and seeing Everest from Kala Pattar you'll travel back to Kathmandu by private helicopter. This is an example itinerary and or illustrative purposes only reflects a "whistlestop trek" that assumes that the mountain gods have been kind with the weather and that any one undertaking it is both well-acclimatised and a very strong mountain walker. But, as this is a private Everest Heli Trek and can be customised we recommend consideration for day 9 as explained in the the detailed itinerary along with additional contingency.
Sleeping bags (4 season) will be required for nights spent in trekking lodges. We can arrange sleeping bag rental if required.

Example Itinerary Overview
NOTE: The price guide above is for a private party of 3 persons. A private, chartered helicopter represents a significant part of the over all cost of this trek and optimal use of seats on a helicopter has been taken into account. So, one helicopter can fly three clients AND the guide back to Kathmandu. For larger groups additional helicopter/s would be required seating up to 4 clients per helicopter. The total costs to charter one additional helicopter for two people being the same if the helicopter is chartered for four people.
