The best time to visit Everest Base Camp is Heli Trek

Mountains have incredibly erratic and unpredictable weather. You can presently see a clean, gorgeous blue sky with a wide view of mountains, but it will shortly be cloudy. It often rains and snows heavily. Outside of the rainy season in June, July, and August, when the routes are muddy and the summits are hidden by clouds, is the less preferable time to visit Everest Base Camp.

The bare paths of winter, the exuberant flurry of spring, and the pleasant, verdant days of fall are all advantages of the other seasons. You may plan your vacation using month-by-month guidance and professional advice from us.

However, the end of the late-May to mid-September monsoon season is the best time to visit Everest Base Camp. The major trekking seasons, with relatively constant weather, clear views, and comfortable temperatures at Base Camp, are late September through early November and February through early May.

Nevertheless, in late April or early May, you could see groups of climbers at Base Camp getting ready for their ascents of Everest. But we recommend late November and early February, where temperatures is exceptionally low—around -15°C during the day and even lower at night—clear sky is often the norm, and quieter routes and teahouses add to the exciting sense of untamed remoteness.

Why is the Everest Base Camp Heli Trek special?

It is different as this package is for individuals who have very little time for exploring because it includes a short trip to Everest. One can take a helicopter from Gorekshep to Kathmandu rather than trekking all the way down to Lukla to catch a flight back. An all-inclusive trip to Kalapathar and the Everest base camp in only two weeks with sufficient preparations. Discover the finest substitute for the standard Everest Base Camp Trek.

You may skip taking the same trek back to Lukla since you will take a helicopter from Gorekshep to Kathmandu. In Lukla, you won’t have to worry about frequently canceled flights because of changeable weather. Above the Himalaya trekking handles all of the procedures for a hassle-free journey.

Everest base camp Heli trek

Mount Everest (8848.86 meters) is the top destination on the bucket lists of adventure seekers worldwide. A helicopter tour of the Himalayas delivers evocative landscapes and lush flora. By using a helicopter, it is possible to quickly and safely reach Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. Why not plan ahead for a once-in-a-lifetime trip?

If you don’t get the opportunity to come up close to Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world, your trip to Nepal would be incomplete. Reaching the Everest base camp typically requires at least 12 days, which may not be possible for many travellers to Nepal.

Duration, current physical fitness level, and overall health status might also be obstacles. In order to enable travelers to achieve their desire to view and get near Mount Everest. So, the trekking would like to provide the Everest Helli Package Tour, considering these challenges into consideration.

For those who don’t have enough time to trek for longer timeframes over several days, an Everest Base Camp Heli trip is the best option. People might be curious about how challenging climbing Mt. Everest would be, but this extravagant trip gives breathtaking sights of beautiful mountain ranges up close.

With less than 3-4  days, you may travel in comfort and elegance to the base camp of Mount Everest with the Everest Base Camp Heli Fly Out Trek. While enjoying the journey through intriguing Sherpa small villages and taking in the breathtaking aerial views of the Everest area on the Heli fly back to Kathmandu, trekkers get the opportunity to see Everest and other peaks.

Helicopters take off to the Everest base camp trip combine an Everest base camp hike with an Everest base camp helicopter tour. Instead of returning to Lukla via the hike from Everest base camp, you can take a direct helicopter ride to Kathmandu.

With a helicopter trip to Everest base camp, you will go from Kathmandu to the summit, see it for a short while, and then fly back the same day. However, this trekking package is intended to provide a quick and safe method to enjoy hiking in the Everest region.

Return Heli offer

Everest Base Camp trek with helicopter return is also the greatest option for trekkers who want to visit Everest Base Camp but don’t want to return by the same route. The Heli ride from Everest Base Camp to Kathmandu will be something you will relish instead.

The adventure starts with an exhilarating flight across the Himalayas to Lukla, a well-known base camp for climbing Mount Everest. After that, you will continue on to Namche Bazaar and spend two nights getting used to the higher altitude. Then, you will proceed upward to the hillside settlement of Tengboche, which is the location of a thriving Buddhist monastery. The second acclimatization will then take place in Dingboche, which you will travel to from Pangboche.

You will ascend the slope behind the village there to enjoy the greatest views of the Ama Dablam, Nuptse Glacier, Makalu, Everest, and more.

As you ascend, temperatures decrease, and dwarf scrub, rock, and ice replace agriculture and forest, respectively. You will spend the night in Lobuche and then go to Gorak Shep, the highest settlement. We arrive at the Base Camp of Everest by traveling the difficult path past the glacier and ice-fall toward the summit. Despite being difficult, the Khumbu Glacier climb to Everest Base Camp is worthwhile. You will make the nighttime trek to Gorakshep.

The beautiful view of Everest, Lhoste, Nuptse, and many neighboring Himalayas is guaranteed with a morning hike to Kapatthar Hill. You will stay the night in Gorakh Shep before catching a morning chartered flight back to Kathmandu with spectacular views of high valleys, lakes, glaciers, and breathtaking mountain vistas—an experience that will last a lifetime.

The problem that might rise during Trek

The schedule could occasionally alter somewhat as a result of unforeseeable events beyond the control of our management. For example sudden changes in weather, government regulations, regional politics, natural disasters, travel delays/cancellations, trekkers’ health, etc.

When these situations arise, the lead hiking guide will choose the best course of action after considering the trekkers’ interests. Regardless of our best efforts to reduce the impact, we cannot be held responsible for any additional costs or for any difficulties or outcomes brought on by modifications or cancellations.

Another issue that might arise while trekking is the potential for Lukla airplane delays and cancellations. As is well aware, there are a number of variables that contribute to plane delays and cancellations to Lukla, including the airport’s narrow runway, remote location, increased traffic at the airport, and unfavorable weather.

To avoid missing your international flight in the instance of a delayed flight or cancellation, it is strongly advised to add a few additional days to your estimated number of days when trekking in the Everest area.

In the unfortunate event that your scheduled flight between Kathmandu and Lukla is canceled, a travel agency can assist you in hiring a private helicopter to guarantee that you make it to your destination on time and in time for your international flight. In contrast to aviation like the Twin Otter and Dornier, which require a vision of 5,000 meters or more, the helicopter may readily fly in conditions as low as 1,500 meters.

However, reserving a private helicopter will cost you extra money in addition to the domestic flight ticket. In the meanwhile, if you’d want to cut your costs in half, you may take a shared Heli flight.

Similar to that, a quick helicopter arrangement typically costs USD 500 per person. When you give us less than 24 hours notice or in emergencies, this charge is applicable. Please be aware that there are a limited amount of helicopters available, so if you request one quickly, you will need to wait in line to use it. Booking early will help you be on time, so do it immediately.

Additionally, we advise you to get travel insurance that includes coverage for adventurous activities performed above a particular height (4,000 m), as well as adverse events like bad weather, accidents, aircraft cancellations or delays, helicopter evacuations, etc. In this situation, the agency can advise you about the paperwork needed for your insurance claim.

 

Experience with Everest Trek and Service

While it might take approximately two weeks to trek to Everest Base Camp in Nepal if you prefer to walk,  instead you can visit there with this easy helicopter trip. Along the route, you will witness distant settlements and verdant farmland in addition to the amazing rocky and ice environment that surrounds Everest.

For individuals with limited time or physical limitations who nevertheless wish to view Mount Everest while in Nepal, for example, this is the perfect trip. Similarly, hotel management will manage the national park fees and permits. This makes visiting Everest Base Camp simple. Experience the thrills of a Himalayan helicopter flight is on the most recommended list.

Physical requirements

The Everest Base Camp Heli Trek reaches the highest altitude of 5,500 meters (18,195 feet) in Kalapathar and a maximum altitude of 5,140 meters (16,865 feet) while spending the night at Gorekshep.

On the other hand, it will take 6 to 8 hours daily if you take a physical walk. Although the schedule is carefully planned to allow for optimum acclimatization, you must make sure you are physically fit for the trip. No prior trekking experience is necessary, however, you should be in reasonable physical shape, enjoy trekking for extended periods of time, and be able to acclimatize to high elevation circumstances.

In addition, you could experience extreme coldness in the helicopter as you ascend to a high altitude; so, you should cover in warm clothing to warm up your body. It is preferable if you have extra jackets on your journey. Another potential issue is altitude sickness. Carry an oxygen cylinder as part of your preparedness in case of emergency.

Time and Cost

Above the Himalaya trekking  provide private helicopter tours, shared flights, Everest flyover tours, and helicopter landing tours at the most affordable prices.

This trip will take around 4 hours, and each helicopter can hold up to 5 passengers. It usually leaves Kathmandu in the morning. However, depending on the weather, the timing may alter.

Keep on note

Keep your safety as the first priority when you are a traveler in Hills Adventures. Please be aware that if you have any worries about your safety, your guide has the option to change or postpone any aspect of the schedule. They will make every attempt to adhere to the aforementioned schedule, but as this journey involves traveling through isolated mountainous areas, the agency cannot promise that they won’t depart from it.

Moreover, the schedule may alter due to a variety of factors, including rough weather, a group member’s health, unanticipated natural calamities, etc. Although the trek guide will make every effort to make sure everything goes according to plan, however, be ready to be flexible if necessary.
