Yes, you can.

You have the incredible opportunity to upgrade to a helicopter ride from Kathmandu to Lukla. By booking in advance, you can secure your spot for this thrilling adventure. The cost for this unforgettable experience is USD 450 per person for a one-way flight. Also don’t forget that you’re merely a passenger rather than a charter so there will be other people in the flight with a maximum of 5 people.

Opting for a helicopter ride not only adds excitement to your travel plans but also ensures the quickest and most reliable transportation through the majestic Himalayas. So, get ready to say goodbye to long drives and hello to breathtaking aerial views!
