Essential Info

Best Time to do Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour 

The Everest Region is at a high altitude, where the weather is constantly changing. We shouldn't be prevented from enjoying the beauty of the Himalayas in Nepal, though, as our trip only requires a little amount of flying time. But when it's raining or foggy, it's just impossible to carry out the flight. If we cannot clearly see the mountain range and distinctive aerial beauty of different terrain,  there is no use in flying. Following is a description of the ideal time for a helicopter flight: 

1. Spring Season 

In Nepal, springtime occurs in March, April, and May. It is the perfect moment for a  helicopter tour of the EBC region. The base camp is surrounded by a nice temperate in Spring Season.  

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter excursion is strongly advised in the spring. Around this time, the weather is favorable and clear. Enjoy the stunning scenery and blooming rhododendrons that cover the entire woodland. You might have to wait in line, though,  since many people choose Heli tours throughout the spring. 

2. Autumn Season 

Autumn in Nepal, from September to November, is the ideal season for Everest Base Camp  Helicopter Tours. The best views of the high Himalayas are guaranteed because there won't be any clouds or fog. 

The view is breathtaking. View beautiful mountain ranges as well as lush hills covered in flowering vegetation. Again, there may be a lineup during the season, so it is best to book as soon as possible. 

3. Monsoon Season 

The monsoon season in Nepal lasts from early June till mid-September. Due to the unpredictable weather, it is often not regarded as the best time to take the Everest Base  Camp Helicopter Tour. Mt. Everest is typically obscured by clouds at this hour. Monsoon season is when flight delays and cancellations are most likely to happen. 

Even in the morning during the rainy season, visibility is clear, making the tour still viable with additional safety measures.  

4. Winter Season 

From December through February, which is the winter season, the base camp region experiences freezing weather. But helicopter flight is still an option. The sights resemble a  wintertime version of Disneyland because the hills and mountains are completely blanketed with snow. 

Although the vistas of the Himalayas are stunning, you may encounter difficulties during this season due to the bitter cold, brisk winds, and copious amounts of snow. Because of the poor weather, flight delays and cancellations are extremely common; thus, mentally prepare yourself. 

COVID-19 Safety Protocol 

Good news for all visitors from around the world: safety precautions are simple and highly flexible in Nepal. There were tight standards to follow in the previous years, but since the fall of 2021,  Nepal has been safe with a low case of Covid-19.

Weather and Climate

In the spring season, which is March, April and May the daytime temperature is 15°C, a warm temperature. While the temperature drops to -10°C in the morning and evening. The mountain views are well apparent.

FAQs

  • No, we can’t land at Everest base camp because Everest base camp is located on the Khumbu Glacier. As a result, there will be no opportunity of landing the helicopter due to a lack of landing space. Another place where helicopter tours do not land at Everest base camp is the Kalapatther. You will be able to see Mount Everest, Mount Abadablam, Mt. Pumori, and other high mountains in the Everest region if you land in Kalapatter.
