Need For Landing At Lukla During Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

The reason for landing at Lukla Airport is for re-fueling purposes. Similarly, we will take a small tea break at Lukla before flying to Kala Patthar. So, this is why we will land at Lukla first during our Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour During Different Season

Nepal has four distinct seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Could we take a quick look at the different seasons?

Spring Season (March to May)

Spring is the best time for the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. The weather and climate conditions are ideal. The sky is also clear, with excellent visibility. The temperature can range from 15 degrees Celsius to -5 degrees Celsius. Moreover, the rhododendron forests and Himalayan wildflowers are in full bloom. It adds colours and vibrancy to the landscapes.

Summer Season (June to August)

The summer season brings rainfall in most parts of Nepal. The lower regions, significantly 3,000 meters, experience heavy rainfall. The higher altitudes receive little rain. Therefore, many travellers choose the summer season for the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. The temperature can range from 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. But the views can be obstructed by clouds. So, if you are considering taking an Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour during the summer, consult your trekking agency first. Also, it is essential to check the weather forecast for a safe flying experience.

Autumn (September to November)

Autumn is another great season for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. The season has the most stable weather conditions with excellent visibility. The temperature also ranges from 10 to 20 degrees Celsius. The sky is clear without much obstruction. You can enjoy the most magnificent views of the mountain peaks, glaciers, and landscapes in autumn.

Winter (December to February)

The winter season brings heavy snowfall in the higher elevations, including the Everest base camp. The temperature also drops significantly and reaches a freezing point. It can range from -6 to -25 degrees Celsius. Similarly, it is very windy during the winter season. The western wind brings severe fog and snow to the region. So, winter is not recommended for the Everest Base Camp helicopter tour.

Note

During the Tour, you can share your Helicopter with your partners and loved ones to take on this interesting Helicopter flight to Everest Base Camp.

A single Helicopter will carry up to 5 pax maximum.

FAQs

What is the maximum height the Helicopter will go to during the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour?

The helicopter flies from 3,000 meters to 6,000 meters during the Everest Base Camp flight. However, under certain circumstances, the helicopter can fly above 6,100 meters. If there are less number of passengers, the helicopter becomes light enough to fly above the average limit or height.

Can we take a Helicopter ride on top of the Mount Everest?

No, since commercial helicopter flights are only permitted to fly over Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp, they do not fly over Mount Everest. Similarly, the weather and climate also play significant roles in the helicopter Tour. In case of less visibility or windy situations, flights are not permitted for safety purposes.

How long will we stay at the Everest Base Camp?

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour will last around 10 to 20 minutes. It may seem short but do not worry. You will have enough time to enjoy the mountains up close. Since the base camp is situated at an elevation of 5,364 meters (17,598 feet), staying there for an extended period is not recommended.

Is drinking water available at the Everest Base Camp?

Safe drinking water is provided during the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. But if you like, you can bring your water bottle with filtered water. Note that the water purifying tablets do not work 100% on hard Himalayan water as they contain high minerals like manganese-bi-carbonate and iron. You can also buy bottled water but remember, it is bad for sustainable tourism.

Can a solo traveler join the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour?

Yes, solo travellers can join the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. However, joining a group flight is cheaper than taking a private tour. It helps to reduce costs. But if you’d like to join a group or tour solo, you can contact Adventure Walkway with your preferred date and requirements. We will make sure to tailor the tour to suit your needs.
