The Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour landing at Everest Hotel is a magical adventure in Nepal.

One day, the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Trip is one of the most popular tours in Nepal. A helicopter ride to the Everest Base Camp brings one right up to the base of the highest peak, Mt. Everest, at 8,848m. The Overfly EBC Helicopter tour offers an alternative option for those who want to reach the Everest Base Camp but have limited time. This Heli trip takes just 5 hours on the very first day and takes you to the Mt Everest zone. It brings you close to Mt. Everest by passing Kalapathar and Everest base camp. This helicopter program with an EBC tour is the best way to have the most beautiful mount and cascade, green hills, settlement areas, farm villages, and fewer things from the air. Let our drone catch the magnificent glimpse of Mount Everest (the highest mountain in the world that looks completely covered in snow and dotted with wildflowers) from the air.

    Security check and transfer to the helicopter

    At the airport, you will be checked by security by the airport staff. Following security clearance, passengers will get a comprehensive pre-brief of the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Itinerary covering tour activities, safety guidelines, and emergency procedures. The staff will lead passengers through the dos and don'ts, ensuring everyone is well-informed and ready for the coming experience. The pre-briefing is done, and the passengers will be taken to the helicopter. The helicopter provides the passengers with all contemporary features and comfortable seats. Thus, the helicopter travels safely and comfortably. As people settle into their seats, the experienced pilot initiates the takeoff procedure from Kathmandu. 

    Scenic Flight From Kathmandu

    As the helicopter begins its journey, prepare for a stunning aerial trip through the Himalayan sky under the bright turquoise sky of the Himalayas. Fall in love with a vision of Kathmandu city and valley as it is located amidst an array of green hills full of houses and terraced farms. Enjoy the wonders of the world-class 360° panoramic view of the Himalayan mountain range and fly down to the east through a spiral. Through the wide window scene, one can view the farmlands of Nepal and picturesque sceneries, including hills and valleys.

    Landing and Refuelling at Lukla

    Then, the helicopter turns northeast, heading for the small mountain airport named Tenzing & Hillary Airport, named by the late great climbers. Lukla is best known for being a busy airport and one of the most dangerous. It is also the airport's starting point for a number of destinations located in high Khumbu places, including the Everest base Camp. Once landed in Lukla, the Everest base Camp heli passengers enjoy a 10 - 15 minute free time during helicopter refuelling at Lukla. It may look like a short break – nevertheless, these precautions are the keys to a successful tour as they ensure the riders ride in the endless scenery of the Himalayas without any problem.

    Fly Towards the Everest

    After completing fueling tasks, the helicopter heads for the main destination area. The place is the astounding Khumbu region, which lies at the heart of the Khumbu region. The scenario changes rapidly into something even more amazing than you can imagine when you approach Everest Base Camp. The sparkling Dudh-Koshi river, which looks like a mark dividing two paradises, meanders smoothly as it flows past you. The flight proceeds over the well-known sites of Namche Bazaar, Khumjung, and Phortse, which stand out, with the summit of Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam in the background. Impressive Mount. To your right lies Cho-Oyu, the sixth-highest peak in the world. The flight takes over the Pangboche and Periche villages. 

    Flyover Base Camp and Kala Patthar 

    Soon, the peak hour arrives, and we fly above the famous Everest base camp and Kala Patthar. The passengers will be in this fascinating world as the helicopter soars above these top-notch locations. Then, you continue to climb the pass at Thukla, where you see Cho-La pass left and the Lobuche peak ahead, with the settlement and lodges around it. You will enjoy spectacular views of Mt. Pumori, among other peaks, as well.

    Finally, you fly over the Khumbu Glacier towards Gorakshep village on the way to the Everest base camp. Next, the helicopter rises above the base camp, where many tents and climbers are getting ready for their Everest expeditions. The multicoloured group of tents, Base Camp, is the undefeatable proof of man’s unbeatable spirit. On the other side is Kala Patthar, whose stature offers unmatched views of the Everest range. This is the chance for the travellers to take pictures with other graphics that will remind them of one unique time in their lives.

    Note: As per the CAAN rules, the Everest base Camp helicopter will not land at Kala Patthar or Everest Base Camp.

    Helicopter ride to Hotel Everest View

    At this point, after enjoying a bird' s-eye view of Everest, g.g., Everest base camp, Kala Patter, etc., you will arrive at the world-famous Everest View Hotel, situated at 3880 metres. The settings are amazing. 

    En route you can see Namche and the village in this enchanting valley. You will also be allotted around an hour for the tour around the Everest View Hotel. With a little over an hour free, you can enjoy the delightful breakfast in the spectacular mountain scenery of Ama Dablam and Mt. Everest.  It certainly is a golden moment. Our balcony is a great place to see Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Tawache, and Thamserku among the many other mountains.

    Helicopter Flight back to Kathmandu

    We end our beautiful break at Hotel Everest View and return to Lukla for refuelling. Lastly, we will fly towards Kathmandu via the grandest of the sceneries. After getting off the helicopter, you go through the immigration process and proceed to the domestic part of Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) Kathmandu.

    Best Time for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour 

    Helicopter Flyovers to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar can be done annually. Still, Autumn and Spring are the ideal seasons. Everest Base Camp helicopter flights will not be conducted in unfavourable and poor weather conditions. Our experts look at the weather forecast in advance to design a pleasant helicopter tour of Everest Base Camp in a helicopter.

    Spring (March to May)

    The spring season, from March to May, is the best time for an Everest Base Camp helicopter tour. During this time, the skies are generally clear, giving you panoramic views of the Himalayan peaks. The temperatures are also pleasant, ranging from 15 to 25°C, making it comfortable to explore the area.

    Summer (June to August)

    The summer monsoon season from June to August is not ideal for a helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp. The heavy rainfall and thick cloud cover mean the visibility and flying conditions are poor. The rain also makes the trails very muddy and slippery, and the leeches come out in full force. Unless you want to experience the challenges of the monsoon, it's best to avoid these months.

    Autumn (September to November)

    From September to November, autumn can also be a lovely time to visit Everest Base Camp. The rains have cleared, the skies are crisp and clear again, and the temperatures are cool but comfortable. The autumn foliage emerges towards the end of the season, dotting the hills with shades of red and gold. The trails are also less crowded after the busy spring season. So, if you want to beat the crowds, autumn is a great choice.

    Winter (December to February)

    The winter months from December to February are very cold at Everest Base Camp, with temperatures dropping below freezing. While the clear skies provide excellent visibility, the freezing temperatures can be quite uncomfortable, especially when flying in an open-door helicopter. The trails also tend to be icy and snow-covered, making it difficult to explore the area. So, unless you want to experience a true Himalayan winter, avoiding the winter season for a helicopter tour is best.

    Is Everest Base Camp Heli Tour Right for You?

    Yes, the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with Everest View Landing is the right tour to choose if you are a traveller with limited time in Nepal and want to reach Everest in just a single day. Here are some reasons why this one-day Heli trip is the right package for you to choose:

    • Ever dreamed of seeing the tallest peak on Earth up close without the strenuous trek? The Everest Base Camp helicopter tour is perfect for you. In just a couple of hours, you'll be transported to the base of the mighty Mt. Everest, an unforgettable experience you'll cherish forever.
    • Unlike the multi-day hike to reach Everest Base Camp, the helicopter tour gets you there in comfort and style. The high-altitude flight offers breathtaking views of snow-capped peaks, glaciers, and the lush Khumbu Valley far below. 
    • No overnight stays in basic teahouses or challenging climbs are required. 
    • The 5-6 hr flight from Kathmandu over EBC and Kala Patthar takes you over some of the planet's most spectacular mountains. 
    • As your helicopter soars by, look out for Makalu, Lhotse, and Nuptse. Circle around the towering peak of Everest itself, then land at the iconic yellow tents of base camp, perched at 17,600 feet.
    • If the idea of trekking for days at high elevation makes you queasy, a helicopter tour is the perfect way to experience the thrill of the Himalayas without the physical demands. Anyone can take part, regardless of age or fitness level. The quick flight up and scenic descent back to Kathmandu means limited exposure to altitude sickness.
    • Whether you're an avid mountaineer or an armchair adventurer, seeing Mt. Everest in person is a bucket list item for many. A helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp offers a comfortable, exhilarating way to fulfil that dream and gain a new appreciation for the roof of the world.

    Weight Limitation Of Flying Helicopter In Everest Region

    The thin air at high altitudes means helicopters must work harder to generate lift and stay airborne, limiting their weight when flying in the Everest region. Most helicopters can only take five passengers. The weight limit for passengers travelling from Kathmandu to Lukla is 500 kg. However, the weight limit decreases to 250 kilograms for flights from Lukla to Kala Patthar/base camp.

    As helicopters ascend higher into the mountains, the air density drops significantly. This causes the rotor blades to become less efficient, requiring more power to produce the same amount of lift. Some helicopters may not have enough power to hover or safely land and take off at extreme altitudes. The pilot must consider the weight of passengers and fuel to ensure the craft has enough power to operate safely at all points during the flight.

    The pilot must balance the helicopter's weight so that it does not exceed the maximum lift available at higher altitudes. If it is too heavy, the helicopter will not ascend and may even start to descend, putting it in danger of crashing into mountain sides. For your safety, weight limits are strictly enforced before takeoff.

    The maximum passenger weight from Kathmandu to Lukla is 500 kg, and the same is 250 kg from Lukla to Kala Patthar/ base camp. This is the most crucial aspect of keeping the correct balance and speed. If the weight of the whole group goes beyond, the group will be divided into several helicopters.

    Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Permits Required

    This helicopter tour requires two permits to get into Sagarmatha National Park and obtain a Khumbu municipality entry permit. Here are some details about the permits below:

    • Sagarmatha National Park entry permits are compulsory for all visitors. The price is Rs.3,000 per person, which is equal to 30 U.S. dollars. 
    • Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit: You must also pay the local government entry permit, which is 2000 rupees per person or 20 USD. In addition to the national park permit, tourists are also assigned an entry permit for the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Municipality, the administrative area surrounding Everest.

    Additional Information to Know For Everest base Camp Helicopter Tour

    Altitude Sickness

    Kala Patthar sits at a lung-crushing 18,192 feet above sea level. At this altitude, oxygen levels are about 60% of those at sea level, so altitude sickness is widespread. Symptoms like nausea, headaches, and shortness of breath can appear within hours of landing. The pilots carefully monitor weather conditions to ascend and descend as rapidly as possible, but you must still be cautious. Stay hydrated, avoid alcohol and heavy foods, and take it slow. Descend immediately if symptoms become severe.

    Weather Conditions

    The weather in the Himalayas is notoriously unpredictable and can change rapidly. Although we at Adventure Altitude Treks carefully evaluate conditions before each flight, unexpected snowstorms or high winds could impact a helicopter flyover around Everest. As a safety precaution, the pilot may turn around early if the weather deteriorates during the flight. Your safety is the top priority, so their judgement calls must be respected.

    Airport Tax

    Tribhuvan International Airport has imposed an airport tax that every traveller must pay for 500 NPR or 5 USD.

    Hotel Everest View Breakfast Cost

    Breakfast at the Everest View Hotel is not included in the package. Plan to pay approximately USD 32 (or 4,000 Nepali rupees) per person to dine at the Hotel Everest View. This cost may vary slightly depending on your specific meal choices.

      Moreover, it is important to note that we will not stay at Kala Patthar for more than 15 minutes since it is located at a very high altitude. Since we will gain such heights (5,545m) in such a short time, staying for long may cause health hazards.

      Great Experience Aerial Amazement

      Even though the weather caused some delays in departing, Rohit’s team ensured continuous communication and updates, so I was confident of our eventual departure. The flight was terrific; it provided the chance to see Lukla, Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar, and a mountain scenery breakfast stopover at Syangboche. Upon returning to Kathmandu, I went to Rohit at Thamel and appreciated him for the perfect trip. I would suggest choosing Adventure Altitude Treks because of their professionalism and good manners, which will also provide you with a beautiful helicopter flight to Everest.

      Thrilling Heights

      This magnificent trip was very nice and better than I imagined after proper preparation. Rohit's and Raju's commitment guaranteed that everything would be fine even on scheduled departure dates. The view of Everest standing majestic before me after reaching Kala Patthar left me almost speechless. Glaciers and moraines were awe-inspiring when looking down from that angle towards the Khumbu Icefall. Also, the price of the tour was another great benefit. I'm already planning my next trip with them, this time to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal; I'll see you again!
