Things To Know

Internet and phone service

The Everest Best Camp Trek now includes a helicopter return option. Additionally, mobile phone networks and internet connectivity are accessible even in higher altitude areas of Nepal, including places like Everest Base Camp, Gorak Shep, Kalapathar, and along the trekking route. Internet service is available in most tea houses, but for using Everest Link WiFi Data Pack, there is an extra charge based on your usage needs. The cost varies; for instance, 500 Nepali Rupees provides 1 GB of data. This service is particularly reliable in lower altitudes such as Namche Bazaar, Lukla, and Phakding, and the WiFi password is provided along with your room fee.

For trekkers seeking high-altitude adventure, there are recommended options available. You can purchase the internet data package using local Nepali SIM cards, specifically Ncell and Ntc, which tend to be more affordable and dependable. These SIM cards can be used throughout your trekking journey and during hotel stays. Adventure Altitude Treks offers the SIM card free of charge, and you will only need to cover the cost of recharging it.

Flight Conditions during your journey

Due to congestion at the Kathmandu airport, flights to the Everest Region now take off from Ramchhap airport. Ramchhap is situated a few hours' drive away from Kathmandu, necessitating a 2 am departure from Kathmandu in order to make it to Ramchhap for the early morning flights. Day and evening flights are not available due to the strong mountain winds that prevail in the afternoons.

It's important to note that flights are susceptible to delays or cancellations caused by adverse weather conditions. To account for this, we strongly advise incorporating a contingency plan of 2 to 3 extra nights. This means, if your planned flight from Lukla is scheduled for Sunday, it's not recommended to book your international flight for the following Monday. Opting for Wednesday or Thursday for your international flight is a safer option in this regard.

Luggage and Bags during the trip

During the trek, Porters will carry a maximum of 20kg each. Therefore, we kindly request that you pack your belongings with consideration for this weight limit. We will furnish you with a bag or duffle bag designed for porters' convenience during transportation.

While for domestic flights, airlines impose an individual weight limit of 15kg. Any additional weight can be settled at the airline counter within the airport. It's important to be aware that this option is feasible only if the flight's overall weight limit hasn't been exceeded. Given these circumstances, we strongly advise you to adhere to packing lightly. In case you have extra luggage that you need to leave behind in Kathmandu, Adventure Altitude Treks will store them in its storeroom.

Battery Charger

Electric battery chargers are indeed available in Nepal, but they are not easily accessible in remote mountain areas. Therefore, tea houses at higher altitudes, particularly in the Everest Region, utilize alternative sources like solar panels or small hydropower systems to supply electricity within their premises. Depending on the higher elevation you're at, there might be an additional fee for battery charging, which varies according to the type of device you have. To address this, we recommend trekkers consider bringing a solar panel, as it's regarded as the most effective choice during the trekking journey.

Contingency in Everest Region

Due to the unpredictable nature of the weather in the Everest region, significant changes might occur. We kindly ask for your understanding in this regard. It's advisable to heed your guide's recommendations, as adjustments to the itinerary might be necessary due to weather conditions.

Issues Relating to Basic Hygiene

Maintaining good health and fitness is essential for reaching Everest Base Camp. This is especially true when it comes to maintaining good hygiene. In a remote village setting, access to basic hygiene facilities may be limited. Therefore, it is important to plan ahead and pack the necessary items to stay clean. Always carry some basic essentials. First, pack plenty of wet wipes and hand sanitizer. You should also bring a small towel and a change of clothes. Second, be aware of the signs of illness and seek medical attention if needed. Hot showers are available in some lodges along the Everest Base Camp trek, but they are not included in the room rate. You will need to pay an additional $4-$5 per shower. This is because the remote areas of the trek do not have electricity, so the water has to be heated using gas stoves. Gas cylinders are carried all the way from Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region, to the higher altitudes.

The Best Months for Everest Base Camp Trek Return by Helicopter

 What is the ideal best time for an Everest Base Camp trek? To put it plainly, the best times are spring and autumn. Yet, it's important to note that due to the extreme altitude of the region, weather predictions are uncertain. While people trek and climb all year, there are specific periods when the weather is more favorable for the average trekker. In order to offer a more precise recommendation for the best time, we've aimed for greater specificity. This way, you can organize your trip during the month that suits you best.


In early March, the weather in the Everest region is still very cold, with temperatures around -20°C degrees Celsius. The activities during the first part of the month are similar to those in January. As the month progresses, the weather starts to change, and the latter half of March marks the beginning of the trekking season in the region. If you want to experience the start of the trekking season in the Everest region without facing many people on the trail, consider scheduling your trip for late March.


Trekking gains popularity during the months of April due to the milder weather. Along the trail, lower sections come alive with blooming rhododendrons and various other flowers. The days gradually become longer, offering ample daylight for exploration, especially during the well-lit early mornings. As the temperature in the higher altitude goes around 15 ͦ to 20 ͦ during the day while the night could be chilly as the temperature might drop below freezing. As April progresses, you might encounter mountaineers acclimatizing at Base Camp. They are preparing for the climb to Camps I, II, and III on the slopes of Everest, culminating in the ultimate summit push. April is considered ideally a perfect month for Everest Base Camp Trek and the weather also will be more stable allowing regular flights assisting your travel more accessible and smooth.


As the weather in early May is quite similar to that of late April, the temperature might rise little bit more making a warmer day while still chilly at night. This month is also ideally considered the best month for Everest Base Camp trek. However, late May will be the onset of the Monsoon in the Indian subcontinent which includes Nepal as well. During this time, you could find yourself alongside mountaineers who are engaged in a sequence of 'rotations'. This involves ascending to higher points on the mountain before descending to Base Camp for recovery, eventually leading to the final summit push. The specific period of favorable weather for these activities varies annually, contingent on the Bengal monsoon. However, the majority of successful summit endeavors tend to take place in late May.
Our strong recommendation for this trip is, in between late April to early period of May, the best and ideal time.


The monsoon gradually comes to an end by the early days of September. Following the complete dissipation of the monsoon, the autumn trekking season commences in late September. With clearer skies, splendid panoramic views become attainable, and the mild weather adds substantial value to your journey. The trails are less muddy compared to the monsoon months, and the mountains offer stunning views with improved visibility. An intense natural and artificial green cover throughout gives you a sense of refreshment. Hence, from all perspectives, the month of September provides a comfortable and enjoyable environment for trekking to Everest Base Camp.


October shines as a month that is distinguished by its clear skies and refreshing air. Beyond its weather attributes, it grants you a comprehensive insight into Nepal's diverse aspects. The prominent Hindu festivals occurring in October will deeply engage you both in Kathmandu and throughout the trekking path. The local traditions, culture, and festive commemorations contribute an added layer of depth to your overall expedition. During the daytime, temperatures at higher altitudes are akin to those experienced in spring, ranging from 10°C to 15°C (50°F to 59°F), but nights can bring freezing temperatures. The month of October is renowned for its vibrant foliage and unobstructed vistas of the mountains.


The initial weeks of November are just as favorable as October for the Everest Base Camp Trek with a Helicopter Return option. The weather remains steady, the skies are clearer, and the atmosphere is clean and refreshing, creating optimal conditions for a seamless and delightful journey to Everest Base Camp. The festival renowned worldwide as Diwali might occur in late October or early November which might bring a tremendous light to your journey. In the latter part of November, the temperature cools slightly, and the trails become less crowded, enhancing the overall experience.

During the day trip, you will visit two of the Buddhist monasteries of Swoyambhunath and Bouddhanath, one Hindus Pilgrimage site of Pashupatinath, and one historical palace of Kathmandu Durbar Square. 
Then after you can go and prepare the gear for the trekking. Look Below The Details Sightseeing 

1. : Budhhanath stupa

Boudhanath, also called Jharung Khasor, is situated 8 km to the east of the city center. It is one of the seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in Kathmandu. It can be viewed from the premises of TIA as you are about to land your flight. The great Boudhanath Stupa was built in the 5th century which makes it one of the most ancient and magnificent Stupas in the world. It is also the largest Stupa in the world. Considered the holiest pilgrimage for Buddhists all around the world, it is believed that the power and blessings of The Great Stupa are far beyond the understanding of human beings. It is widely believed that whoever prays and worships with a pure heart at Boudhanath creates good karma therefore the way to hell and dark realms are closed to them, fulfilling their wishes.

Early morning or late evening visit to The Great Stupa gives you a vibe of Tibetan culture. The smoke from butter candlelights and incandescents fills the aura with a pleasing smell, offering peace to your mind and soul. You can stroll around the area for buying souvenirs, metal handicrafts, Thangkas, etc., or just catch a good breakfast or dinner with an aerial view of Boudhanath from the rooftop cafés and restaurants. 

2. Patan Durbar Square:

Patan, also called Lalitpur, is considered to be the oldest city among the three cities of Kathmandu Valley. It is home to the city's, better to say Nepal's finest craftsmen who have been able to preserve the ancient Newari culture and the ancient technique of metal handicrafts. The city inherits one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Patan Durbar Square. Patan Durbar Square is an old palace of the Malla kings who ruled the city during the Malla regime. The artistic handicrafts and metal crafts are seen everywhere making this place a living historical museum. Another place to see inside the Durbar Square area is the Patan Museum. The museum lies inside the palace and has a collection of fine historical metal crafts, wood carvings, and the historical Malla throne of the Malla regime. The Krishna Temple in the west premises of Durbar Square is another fine example of this artistic heritage. The temple was built by King Siddhi Narsingh Malla in 1637. Another must-see place is the Mahabouddha, a magnificent terracotta temple built in Sikhara style containing 1000 images of Buddha. Filled with historical crafts and monuments that can be traced back to the 16th century, the Square is home to 136 bushels (courtyards) and 55 temples. It is one of the major sacred sites for both Buddhists and Hindus. Beyond the temples, lie a lot of restaurants and cafés with rooftops, that serve different continental foods along with Newari traditional food. 

3. Pashupatinath Temple

Considered to be one of the four most important religious heritage for Hindus around the world, especially for the devotees of Lord Shiva, it is another UNESCO World Heritage Site worth a visit when you are in Kathmandu. Located 3 km northwest of the city, Pashupatinath is home to 492 temples, 15 Shivalayas (shrines of Lord Shiva), and 12 Jyotirlinga (phallic shrines) which carry significant religious values. It is considered that the place has existed there long before the millennia after the appearance of Shiva Linga. But the temple was built in the 5th century by King Prachanda Dev of the Lichhavi Dynasty and later renovated by the Malla kings of the Malla Dynasty. The temple is a common sacred site to Hindus and Buddhists. The main temple is fortified within the walls guarded by Nepal Police and Nepal Army and is denied entry to non-Hindus. Another new experience for non-Hindu visitors is to watch the cremation ceremony. Though it is not recommended for faint-hearted people. 

4. Swoyambhu Mahachaitya :

Situated on a hilltop from a distance of 3 km from the main city, Swoyambhu Maha chaitya (Swoyambhunath) is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Nepal. The stupa has been a paradigm of faith and harmony for centuries with Hindu temples and deities carved within this holy Buddhist site. It is believed that the glory and prosperity of Kathmandu Valley were started at this point in time. Apart from being a sacred place, the hilltop also acts as an overlook from where one can enjoy the panoramic view of the extensive valley.  Swoyambhu's "self-existent one" was built by King Manadeva of the Lichhavi Dynasty in 460 A.D. By the 13th century, it had become an important center of Buddhism. Since then a lot of Hindus and Buddhists of the whole world visit this place every year for prayers. The largest image of the Sakyamuni Buddha in Nepal rests on a high pedestal on the western side of Swoyambhunath. A temple dedicated to Saraswati (often called ManjuShree by Buddhists), the goddess of learning is built behind the hilltop. The stupa premises is filled with Buddhist shrines and statues of Hindu deities. The prayer wheels, the vibrant prayer flags, the chanting of Buddhist Monks, and the monkeys chattering, give this place a combination of natural and religious vibe. One can feel the inner peace and tranquillity after visiting this Sacred place.

After visiting all those places, we will head back to the office. We will hold a final pre-trek brief. After that either you want to explore the city by yourself or you want to go straight back to your accommodation, depends on your choice.

Can I do "Everest Base Camp trek with a helicopter return" during non-peak period?

Fundamentally, the concept of an "off-season" is not applicable in the Everest region. This is due to the arduous nature of the trail and the notably unpredictable weather, especially during specific periods. The Everest region consistently remains open to embrace tourists, allowing them to relish its magnificence, with distinct attributes during each season or month. Natural inclination of human being is to refrain from extremes, i.e. to avoid excessive cold, hot or rainy season. Notably, the Everest region does not experience an intensely hot season.

Individuals inclined towards embracing challenges and avoiding the conventional crowd-driven path find solace here. Everest extends a warm welcome to such spirited souls. Therefore, to facilitate these audacious adventurers, we have endeavored to provide weather insights for the months often referred to as the "low season" or "off-season" period.


While January doesn't always guarantee heavy snowfall, it's still feasible to trek to Everest Base Camp during this time. If you prefer fewer people on the trail, this might be the optimal period for your trek. Many individuals avoid going there during this time because of the cold weather. However, it can be quite cold. Make sure to bundle up with multiple layers to stay warm, and take pleasure in the unique experience of being among the few individuals in the Himalayas during this season.


February can be really cold, especially at night, with temperatures around -20°C or even colder which can last till early march. But on the bright side, the skies are usually clear, so you can see all those peaks in the region very clear including Mount Everest. Also, there won't be as many people on the trail, and the teahouses where you stay will be calmer. This makes the trek feel more like a real adventure. You might even get to experience the Hindu Holi festival which happens in either late February or early March. During this festival, people in Kathmandu throw colorful paint powder at each other, making it a lively and messy celebration.


As May approaches its end or beginning of June, the monsoon season settles in Nepal and persists from June through July, August, and the beginning of September. Throughout this rainy period, the precipitation might not be continuous throughout the day, but there is a daily occurrence of rainfall. Consequently, the trails become muddy and are frequented by leeches. The mountains frequently find themselves shrouded in dense clouds, and the possibility of landslides during the monsoon season is prevalent, causing disruptions in travel plans.


December offers another advantageous window for trekking; nonetheless, it introduces chillier weather, causing nighttime temperatures to dip considerably below freezing. The advantageous side is that the path to Everest Base Camp witnesses a decline in foot traffic as individuals aiming to avoid the cold diminish in numbers. Furthermore, tour costs and flight fares typically undergo a minor reduction during this period. On the whole, opting for a journey in December proves to be a cost-effective, less congested, and more daring choice.
