Preparation for Everest Luxury Trek– Return by Helicopter

Before embarking on the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter Return, it's crucial to prioritize your physical and mental well-being. If you lack prior trekking experience, consider incorporating activities like cycling, jogging, and regular morning walks into your routine for several weeks or months before making a reservation. Previous hiking and climbing experience can be advantageous for this trek, especially considering the highest point, Kalapatthar, stands at an elevation of 5545 meters. The journey encompasses various terrains, including farmland, terraces, and sherpa communities, involving several ascents and descents, demanding a level of physical fitness to endure daily walks of 5 to 6 hours. Mental fortitude is equally essential as doubt and lack of confidence can lead to discomfort and anxiety. It's highly recommended to consult with your doctor before departure, particularly if you have respiratory issues, and provide us with a copy of the medical report upon booking.
