The best time to visit Everest Base Camp Heli Trek

Mountains have erratic and unpredictable weather. You can see a clean, gorgeous blue sky with an expansive view of mountains, but it will shortly be cloudy. It often rains and snows. Outside of the rainy season in June, July, and August, the routes are often muddy due to rain. Also, the summits are blocked by clouds. So it is the least preferred time to visit Everest Base Camp.

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

Yet, the end of the late-May to mid-September monsoon season is the best time to visit Everest Base Camp heli trek. Late September through early November is best to take this trek. February through early May are also the major trekking seasons. This month, you get perfect weather, clear views, and mild temperatures at Base Camp.

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

We had a very short time in Nepal and wanted to see the Everest base camp. We didn’t want to go. So we took the Everest base camp heli trek. So, Puru suggested we trek to Namche, Everest View Hotel, and from there, we took a helicopter to Base camp.

We landed there and did a Kala Patthar top-up. It was a great experience. We recommend this trek for people who have a short time. If you want to enjoy the tour in the Everest region, you can visit the Above The Himalayas.
