HIMALAYAS & EVEREST BASE CAMP
Start your journey through Nepal by transferring to the Himalayan foothills by helicopter while the mountain scenery soars up around you. Check in to the exclusive Happy House at Phaplu—formerly the home of Sir Edmund Hillary. Lunch , food that a traditional sherpa would enjoy, is served in the garden where you’re surrounded by remarkable Himalayan views.
Trek up to the Ratnange ridge along winding forest paths passing weathered monasteries, until you arrive at your traditional ger camp. From your exclusive viewpoint, you’ll watch the sun color the faces of the mountains orange before you fall asleep beneath the stars.
Come morning, and after breakfast in the fresh mountain air, return to Happy House through the glorious blooms of a rhododendron forest. The helicopter will take you to Everest Base Camp, located beneath the Khumbu Icefall at an elevation approaching 18,000ft.
Upon arrival, you’ll have around ten minutes to experience the location, steal a few photographs, before a swift and scenic descent back to thicker air in Kongde where you’ll enjoy lunch with Mount Everest as your backdrop.
