Urban Adventures: The Himalayas in luxury
Himalayan peaks can be explored from the luxury of your table with this exceptional add-on to your journey through Nepal. With a helicopter drop to a high mountain lodge and a champaign breakfast on offer, there is precious little that trumps this experience.
Early in the morning, take a spectacular helicopter flight to Lukla in the Everest region. After a brief stop, continue on to one of the highest lodges in the world at 4,250m (13,950ft). At the lodge, sumptuous breakfast will be laid out and served by the expert staff. You sit out marvelling at the panoramic views of the Himalayas with the tip of Mt. Everest distinctly visible. Apart from Everest, you will be rewarded with majestic views of Lhotse, Nuptse, Cho-Oyo and Ama Dablam along with views of the spectacular Khumbu valley. This once in a life time trip will leave an ever lasting impression of having breakfast with Mt. Everest in one of the most remote parts of the world and some of the nature’s breathtaking views around it.
