You can only dub it an “Adventure in Nepal” when you have toured the Everest Base Camp. Following the victorious venture by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the Everest Base Camp has since been one of the most sought-out destinations for the adventure fanatics. As a result, thousands of tourists throng this sight each year. Normally, there are three ways you can reach Everest Base Camp: trekking from Jiri to Everest Base Camp, flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and finally a helicopter reservation from Kathmandu to Everest Base Camp. The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour is among the simplest and most enjoyable alternatives to get to Mount Everest Base Camp. Helicopter flights have become growingly favored as a mode of picturesque air travel. Travelling by helicopter to Everest Base Camp offers passengers a breathtaking aerial view of the landscape as a whole. Due to the limited number of passengers per helicopter ride, the tour will feel more personal and private allowing you to even have a chat with the pilot.
Once we set off from the Kathmandu Airport, you will get a breathtaking view of the entire valley including the vista of green forests, flying parallel to Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal and Jugal Himal ranges. The expedition will then carry on the eastern and far eastern Himalayas, which include Cho-Oyu and Gaurishankar. In about 45 minutes we will arrive at Lukla (2,820m), also referred to as the “Gateway to Mount Everest”. The flight will proceed towards Namche Bazaar (3,440m) commonly known as the Sherpa Capital. Although very different from the usual modern city, Namche provides you with all the facilities you may need such as ATM counters, Banking service, Internet, Luxurious Restaurants and Hotels. After a period of time we will get to Yangboche Monastery (3,867m) from where you can get a spectacular close-up of the Tharmasarkhur, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and of course the magnificent Mount Everest. Satori Adventure’s Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour directly takes you to Everest Base Camp, landing on Kalapathar, where you will have ample time to go trigger happy on your camera snap button. After taking some rare snaps to your fulfillment, we will then trek to Gokyo Lake. The Everest Base Camp Heli Trek tour is also included in the package, where you get to land and trek the amazing landscapes. We will spend some time at the Everest Base Camp, have lunch at the Everest View Lodge and eventually depart for Kathmandu. The entire flight to Everest Base Camp lasts only 3 hours- 3 hours of amazing experience you will remember for a lifetime.

Satori Adventures has not able to include the cost of each package in the company website. Many of our clients have the same query: why Satori Adventures has not included the price in the package. To provide you service in reasonable cost and attempt to address your each requirement we desired to provide you with some information which directly affects the cost and also helps us breakdown the cost. That’s why, we have decided to clarify our customers that due to following reasons we have not included the cost in our website and package:
Please feel free to contact Satori Adventures for any information about in your selected package.
Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal. Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries). Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.
On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:
Please kindly submit Trip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip.

While we were in Nepal for a conference and wanted to organize a quick helicopter trip to Everest base Camp. The manager of Satori Adventures was Rishi who organized a heli trip with a very experienced heli crew up to Lukla, Hotel Everest View and to an advanced point near base camp. We enjoyed ourself by watching the clear view of Everest and the surrounding peaks. On our request Rishi organized a quick half day tour to fill in our day in Kathmandu.
I highly recommend Satori Adventures for the Nepal Tour.
