The reasons why the helicopter lands at Kalapathar instead of Everest Base Camp
Well, the Everest Base Camp is situated on the glacier of Khumbu and it doesn’t have suitable space for landing, especially during the peak season when submitters set their tents for the summit push. On the other hand, Mt. Everest is not visible as the mountains around overlap the view of Everest and hide the view.
Meanwhile, Kalapathar offers the most majestic view of Mt. Everest including other peaks. It is high enough that you will see yourself above the clouds enjoying the sunrise. So, Kalapathar is the only option that provides everything.
