Why take our Lobuche to Kathmandu Helicopter Flights?
Fast and reliable
Opting for the Lobuche to Kathmandu helicopter flight will save you a few hiking days since you won't have to trek all the way back to Lukla to catch a flight. Additionally, it is more dependable than a regular flight because a helicopter can operate in marginally bad weather. Therefore, you won't have to be concerned about missed or canceled domestic flights and long airport formalities.
When trekking at high altitudes, there is a greater risk of injury or altitude sickness. Due to the lack of motorable roads in the Everest region, even a minor leg injury could cause serious problems. Similarly, with the alarming symptoms of altitude sickness, one must be transported to a lower altitude as soon as possible. A helicopter flight comes to a rescue during such cases.
Stunning aerial view
Trekking to the Himalayas to view the mountains up close from the ground is one thing. But flying over some of the tallest mountain peaks in the world and taking in the panoramic view of the entire Himalayan region from a chopper is just a magical experience. It is a dream come true for a nature lover.
