Best time to do Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour

Overview of the Climate in Nepal

Nepal has a complex climate that can vary greatly depending on which region of the country you find yourself in. Generally, the climate in Nepal can be divided into two distinct seasons—the dry season and the wet season. In most parts of the country, the dry season lasts from October or November through May or June. While the wet season typically runs from late June to late August or September. The best time for Everest Base Camp helicopter tour is during the dry season when weather conditions are more favorable.

How do Weather Conditions Impact helicopter tours to the Everest Base Camp?

When taking a helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp, weather conditions can have a significant impact on your experience. You will be flying at high elevations in an area with drastic temperature changes and strong winds. Both conditions can be dangerous and you may face unpleasant experiences. To ensure the best aerial views of the region, it is important to plan your tour for the clearest weather when visibility is good and wind speeds are low. During the dry season, skies tend to be much clearer than during the wet season, making it ideal for helicopter tours.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Trek

What Are the Best Months for Everest Helicopter tours?

The best months to book a helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp are between March and April. At this time the visibility will be at its peak and wind speeds should be relatively low. Everest region is frequently covered in snow in January and February. While May to August can often be very windy. By flying during the dry season in March or April, you’ll have the opportunity to experience breathtaking views of Mt. Everest and its surrounding peaks with minimal risk and turbulence.

Best time for Everest base camp Helicopter tour.

EBC Helicopter Tour in Spring Season

With clear skies and good visibility, sunny days make for the perfect backdrop for a picturesque flight. If you’re looking for the best time to experience Everest by helicopter, then the Spring Season is your answer. The weather is generally mild between late March and early May. So we could know the visibility from the Himalayan peaks is perfect for sightseeing. The snow cover is also minimal at this time of year, so flying conditions are suitable for safer and smoother take-offs and landings. The views of the Himalayas in full bloom, brightly colored landscapes, and a stream of trekkers making their way onto Everest base camp is simply incredible from the air.

EBC Helicopter Tour in Autumn Season

With clear skies and pleasant weather conditions, autumn is the ideal time to take a helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp. From September to November, temperatures are mild with very few rains and plenty of sunshine. The beautiful valleys and hills are lush green after the monsoon season. Visibility is excellent and you can expect an amazing view of the Himalayas from your flight. Autumn is by far one of the best seasons for any kind of trekking in Nepal. So, if you’re looking for a chance to experience this majestic landscape from high above then make sure to consider visiting during these months.

EBC Helicopter Tour in Winter Season

A helicopter ride to Mount Everest Base Camp during the winter months of December, January, and February is not a good choice. But during this time, the Himalayan peaks will be fully covered in snow which will give you a Holiday vibe when reaching Base camp. However, precipitation and poor weather can reduce vision while remaining inside the chopper. We recommend you check the weather forecast before your trip.

EBC Helicopter Tour in Monsoon Season

The rainy or monsoon season begins in May and lasts until around early August. Flying during these months can be dangerous, as the clouds and strong winds can make it difficult to navigate. There is also significantly more precipitation during this time of year. This could increase the chance risk of the pilot being unable to land the helicopter safely. Therefore, we do not recommend you book the Everest Base Camp helicopter tour during the monsoon season.

Conclusion

If you’re looking to experience an unforgettable Everest Base Camp helicopter tour, your best bet is to plan your trip for either the Spring (March-May) or Autumn (September – November) season as these are the best times of year for optimal weather and visibility. To get the most out of your trek, make sure to schedule your journey for one of the months during these seasons – March, April, May, September, November, or December.

Altitude sickness

Altitude Sickness in Everest Base Camp Trek

Handling the threat of high-elevation sickness is among the most difficult tasks for trekkers who are traveling to Everest Base Camp. The physiological adaptations your body experiences at high elevations are known as altitude sickness. You will not encounter the typical effects of altitude if you trek Everest Base Camp with the proper precautions. But if you move up the route too fast, you run the chance of getting severe mountain sickness. This is because your body won’t be able to adapt to the reduced oxygen levels at higher elevations. The most crucial thing to keep in mind is to climb steadily and to take acclimatization days.

Altitude Sickness in Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

The Everest base camp is located at a very high altitude. On this tour, you will be changing the location from Low to high altitude in a short amount of time. It may cause altitude sickness issues. That’s why you will spend a short period in Kalapatthar to enjoy the scenic view of the majestic mount Everest and other gigantic peaks. 15-20 min will be enough time to explore and capture the memories with your loved ones in this Place. But you’ll have enough time to see the breathtaking mountains that the Everest View Hotel offers while having Breakfast.

Altitude sickness only occurs when a person is above 2500 meters above sea level. Due to no exposure to the outdoor environment, a person won’t feel any kind of changes inside the body during flight time. When you come out of the Helicopter, you will start to feel changes inside your body. So for this reason you get only some minutes to explore the Everest base camp region.

Since there is a pressure differential between the interior of the chopper and limited oxygen at Kala Patthar, you face the possibility of experiencing altitude sickness when the helicopter lands there. If you experience breathing difficulties, you will receive supplementary oxygen immediately. To meet these scenarios, the helicopter is equipped with masks and bottles of oxygen.
