Best time for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

Nepal is located in the Himalayas Mountains, which are frequently covered with snow. The weather changes frequently throughout the year in this region, which gives it the name “Roof of the World.”

However, since our trip only takes a few hours by air, we should not be deterred from seeing Nepal’s wonders. However, when it’s foggy or raining, it is impossible to fly. If we can’t see the mountain range and unique aerial vistas of varied topography clearly, there’s no point in flying.

In the winter season, the covering of snow thickens, giving mountains an even more magnificent appearance. If you can’t make it in the spring, perhaps winter is your option.

The summer, on the other hand, is not a good time for helicopter flights. It rains heavily and the weather is highly unpredictable since it changes constantly.

Cost of Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

The cost of a summit attempt by helicopter on the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, will vary according to the services and facilities required by clients. The price of a climbing expedition to Mt. Everest’s base camp would be greater if there were more facilities available.

The size of your party, whether it’s a single or a couple (or more) of people, will affect the cost of an Everest base camp helicopter landing trip.

The cost of an Everest base camp helicopter tour starts at $899 per person. If you have a group of five people, the cost for each person will be US$1200.

If we need to use an extra shuttle because the weight of the group is too much for one shuttle, there will be a fee that each person in the group pays.

Things to carry during Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

We leave early in the morning for Everest Base Camp. We check the weather to make sure it is safe before we leave. If the weather changes while we are on our journey, we are prepared to face any extreme conditions.

Day to Day Itinerary

Expand All Close All
Day 1 : Day 1 Kathmandu - Lukla - EBC - Kathmandu
Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m., the flight will generally be conducted early in the morning. Depending on the weather, the departure time may vary or be delayed. Before takeoff, Simrik Air pilots will thoroughly examine the criteria to ensure that they are met.

6:30 AM: Meet up at Tribhuvan International Airport

After you arrive at Tribhuvan International Airport’s domestic terminal, one of Simrik Air’s representatives will meet you. All you have to do is call them up using the provided phone numbers and confirm your reservation.

The instructor will go over some important safety procedures and regulations during the flight. After that, we’ll meet up with the pilot and board the chopper. If you have any concerns about the journey, please resolve them before we leave so that everyone can work together for a successful flight.

7:00 – 8:00 AM: Flight to Lukla and Defueling
Altitude: 2,860m/9,383 ft

The airport begins its journey from the ground, flying north and west to reach the Hillary Tenzing Airport near Lukla on the Nepal east side. The Lukla Airport is a tiny facility with a single runway 2,860 meters long.

On the journey, you will notice yourself looking at the beautiful snow-covered mountain range. Of course, we can’t forget about Sherpa settlements, monasteries, and stupas from the air.

The following are some of the mountains with which you may view: The Ganesh (7,429m), Gauri Shankar (7,134m), Ganesh (7,429m), Shishapangma (8,013m), Gyachung Kang (7,952m), Pumori (7,161m).

After the refueling, we’ll continue our flight to Lukla, which takes around 15 minutes.

8:15 – 8:30 AM: Flight from Lukla to Kalapathar
Altitude: 5545m/18,192 ft

After refueling, we depart from the Lukla Airport and fly to Kala Patthar. The journey usually takes about 15 minutes. We will be flying at an altitude of about 5,500 meters at this point. If the group consists of four to five individuals, it will be divided into two parts by aviation regulations.

8:30 – 8:45 AM: Sightseeing at Kala Patthar

We will stop for 10 minutes if you ask us to after reaching Kala Patthar. This is because our bodies are not able to quickly adapt to the sudden change in altitude from 1,400 meters in Kathmandu to over 5,500 meters. However, this is still long enough to take some spectacular photographs and see up close

8:45 – 9:00 AM: Flight to Hotel Everest View (Syangboche)

We return to Syangboche and have breakfast at the Hotel Everest View. This is one of the best parts of the tour because it offers great views of Mount Everest and the locals here are very welcoming and friendly.

9:00 – 9:30 AM: Breakfast at Hotel Everest View
Ground Duration: 30 Minutes

We celebrated the end of our trip with a delicious breakfast at the Hotel Everest View. This hotel is really special because it is the world’s highest situated hotel. It has been honored in the Guinness Book of World Records. The champagne breakfast is really popular here, and after that people usually eat something light.

9:30 – 10:00 AM: Flight back to Lukla and Refueling

We’re stopping at Lukla to refuel on our way to Kathmandu. We’ll be there for about 15 minutes before flying to Tribhuvan International Airport.

10:00 – 11:00 AM: Flight back to Tribhuvan International Airport

We take off from the fertile valleys and hills of Nepal, heading towards Kathmandu. We fly over the lush hills and mountains of Nepal as we make our way to Kathmandu. The flight back passes over the Khumbu Glacier before landing at Tengboche Monastery, which is spectacularly built.

We depart with a sense of accomplishment and pleasure after bidding farewell to the magnificent Mt. Everest. Finally, your pilots will be landing at Kathmandu’s domestic airport
