How to reach the world’s largest peak in a day?

It is an understatement for what the view of the largest peak looks like from high above the sky. Picturesque isn’t enough to describe what it looks like. You’ll be in awe, for how much your eyes can manage to grasp, and yet it isn’t enough. Even when you swift your eyes as far as they can go to, the view that looks like it has been taken out of a painting will leave you stunned.

As you can tell already, we are talking about the experience of seeing Everest. And when you think of Everest, you think of trekking. But what if trekking is not everyone’s cup of tea, or what if people don’t have enough time to experience a trek? And what if one wants to take the experience without much of a hassle? Or simply, what if one wants to go to Everest in just a day?

Well, we have a solution for you. It is very much possible to see Mt. Everest in a day. And what if we told you that you get to enjoy breakfast after your trip to Everest as well? That too, in just a day. Yes, you can reach Everest in a short amount of time, in a helicopter.

You could gain this experience by booking a trip for “Everest Heli Tour”, and after the weather condition is good enough for you to take that trip, the helicopter will proceed forward while tearing the cloud. And when you see that helicopter coming down to the land, to pick you up, your adrenaline gets pumping.

This Heli tour will take you to the base camp of Everest and from there you will get to witness Everest and everything that lies around it, from aerial view. You will also be able to see the snowcapped beauty that Ganesh Himal, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Langtang and overall thirteen more mountains and more are.

Between Mt. Everest and Nuptse lies Mt. Lhotse, which feels like, is welcoming you to climb through that snowy steep to get to her. And you also see Tsuro glacier that looks like a frozen waterfall, but it is not. It is a glacier. From an aerial distance, it looks like a waterfall but when you get closer, you see that it is, in fact, a glacier.

From the top, when you see the ranges standing next to each other, you feel like you are in the center of a bigger world that you didn’t know existed. That is exactly what it feels like.

The mountains embraced mid-way with clouds look like a halo that has been pulled down to waist length. So while looking out for the mountains and glaciers, you might be thinking that there would be no sight of vegetation. But that is quite not right.

As you head back to where you began your journey from, you will feel refreshed to see some vegetation back at Pangboche.

And as your journey comes to an end, and you see the platform where you took off from, there is that sensation that the journey is coming to an end. That bittersweet feeling that makes you want to go for round two fills you with nostalgia already.

It is the feeling that you cannot believe because your eyes see something that looks like a painting, but it is not. It is that innocent confusion when you know that it is not a picture, but it looks so ethereal. You suddenly realize why people buy paintings of the Everest and how much it can awaken nostalgia.

And if having read this, makes you want to experience this yourself, you can contact us. We can tell you this much; that this experience is soulful which will touch your heart with enticement.
