Helicopter from Lukla to Syangboche


Khumbu’s crown jewel and a window to see out the northeastern Himalayas, Syangboche, is an earthly paradise. It has the glory of standing alongside Mt Everest and viewing the beautiful landscapes and towering mountains.

This beautiful Sherpa village lying in the lap of Khumbila also serves as a domestic airport in Namche. Although it doesn’t operate regular commercial flights, many chartered flights depart and land from the airstrip.

Syangboche is a vantage point for many Everest trekkers to catch the first glimpse of the highest peak. It’s also the most sought-after trek destination with just 5.67 miles of walk from Namche. Many avid trekkers use Syangboche as a side trek for acclimation and to enjoy the picturesque view.

They take a long and steep ascent to reach Syangboche, taking anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. Those traveling from Lukla have to trek even longer to get to the hilltop. This is strenuous and time-consuming, especially who have planned a short visit to the town.

Therefore, most travelers hoping to get a sight of Mt. Everest prefer to take a heli flight to the hilltop. A helicopter flight is the best way to travel to Syangboche and watch the glistening mountains if you have a short time to do so.
