Places of interest in Everest Base Camp helicopter?

Kala Patthar:

Kalapatthar, located on the south elevation of Pumori, is situated at an altitude of 5644 m above sea level. This hill point is very famous for panoramic close-up views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Everest, Changtse, and surrounding peaks. Kalapatthar has established itself as an alternative for Everest Base Camp for many travelers since the viewpoint provides a glimpse of Everest peak which cannot be seen from Everest Base Camp.

Hotel Everest View at Syangboche:

Hotel Everest View is awarded as Guinness Book of World record in 2004 for the highest situated hotel. It is situated at an altitude of 13,000 ft above sea level.

Khumbu Glacier:

Khumbu Glacier is the world’s highest glacier with elevations of 4,900 m at its end to 7,600 m at its source. Located in between Mount Everest and Lhotse-Nuptse ridge, Khumbu Glacier is also the largest glacier in Nepal. Trekkers encounter it on the final trail to the base camp. The glacier has a huge icefall which is called the Khumbu Icefall. Furthermore, it is one of the riskiest challenges for those who are on their way to the Everest summit. From above, however, the giant glacier looks stunning, along with a breathtaking aerial view of the Himalayan range around it. Therefore, the EBC Helicopter tour is practical to observe the icefall without getting too risky along the way.

Frequently Asked questions

1.Is Everest Helicopter Tour in Nepal Safe?

Our flights take off only after a comprehensive inspection of weather and wind direction in the Everest region. After the experts have finally signaled that it is safe to fly, only then did we execute the tour.

Safety is the primary concern of our agency. Our aircraft go through repeated maintenance and checkups to eradicate all the possible consequences. They are flown by some of the best-in-class pilots who have been awarded numerous times.

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.

2.How long does the Everest Helicopter tour takes? 

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour takes about 4 to 5 hours for completion. However, the helicopter will fly for approximately 2-3 hours All together. There will be 15 to 30 minutes of layover in between.

3.What is the highest altitude that we reach during the Everest Helicopter tour?

Kala Patthar is the highest point during the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour which lies at an altitude of 5,545m. It is located slightly higher than the Everest Base Camp which is why most prefer to land at Kala Patthar rather than the base camp.

13.Why is helicopter landing at Kala Patthar very short?

Landing at Kalapathar during Everest Base Camp Heli Tour is short timed because of temperature. Even during afternoon the temperature falls below 5 degree Celcius. Because of such cold weather , helicopter engine should continuously roll.  Once the engine is off , it is very hard to start again as combustion of gas is very hard due to cold weather and lack of sufficient oxygen. Another point for stopping only for short period of time at Kalapatthar is , travellers will have no time to acclimatize themselves on such high altitudes which may cause altitude sickess to them . To avoid such problems , the helicopter landing time is very short at Kalapatthar.

14.Can you take a helicopter to Mt Everest?

Everest base camp is one of the highest base camps in all around the  world which is located in the south-eastern part of  Nepal. Anyone who witnesses the massive Mount Everest gains a lifetime experience of good and adventurous memories. The only time a helicopter lands at Everst Base Camp is to supply supplements like food , climbing equipments , rescue operations for climbers. Even for that, one should inform the government to access a permit to carry out those task. 

Apart from that, the helicopter lands at kalapatthar giving travellers an astounding 360 degree view of the mountainscapes.

15.What happen to the trip in case of bad weather conditions?

All things are well prepared and we are informed about the weather conditions before we start the tour . If the bad weather condition persists , we can postpone the trip to next day. If the weather begins to change during the trip , we have no other options except to understand that weather in mountainous region can change and have to go with the flow. 

16.Is it possible to fly to Lukla from Gorekshep?
Gorkhchep to Lukla by chopper is another very popular tour in everest region for those who don't have enough time to trek for extra days in mountain. Those people have golden oppurtunity to do this trip. Starting from Kathmandu to Lukla by plane, one can start trekking into the vast wildlands of Himalayan region for 8 days with an oppurtunity to experience local culture, life style, farming place , green forest, river with waterfalls and many more.
