From here, you'll go side trip to Thamo and Khumjung village. After this, you'll spend a night at an exclusive Hotel Everest View at 3,880m. You'll enjoy the luxury facilities with warm Sherpa hospitality during your stay. And then, you'll take a heli ride to EBC, Kala Patthar, and Gokyo Lake, which is also the main highlight of this trek.

From the iconic viewpoint of Kala Patthar, you'll relish the awe-inspiring mountain views and stunning natural beauty of the Everest region. The view of lofty snowy peaks such as Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Changtse, Pumori, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kangtega, and Lobuche is totally stunning. In addition, the aerial view of Gokyo Lake and getting off the helicopter to enjoy the scene of pristine Gokyo Lake is an absolutely mind-blowing experience you would ever have.

Within one and half hours, you'll explore all major places of the Everest region and get back to Kathmandu for the final departure.

incredible mountain flight
This was the best I could expect. I never thought that a Nepali travel agency would organize such itinerary. It took me almost a week to search through the internet and scan through hundreds of travel agency before I could finalize the trip for myself. The founder himself chatted with me and even called me to make sure everything is syncing. How great is that of Him! It was an amazing trip.
