Everest Base Camp at the foot of Everest, with an elevation of 5,364 m (17,598 ft), remains located in the eastern Himalayas of Nepal. The base of the towering Mount Everest remains situated at the Solu-Khumbu district of Province 1. It is quite an attraction among trekkers and adventurers worldwide.

This outstanding Everest helicopter tour takes you to the mountain’s base comfortably and without hassle. This trip is ideal for those who cannot trek through the harsh terrains of the region. However, specific challenges need to get faced during this helicopter tour.

Although there is no training required for this trip, you will need to be fit for the journey. The travelers must have a basic level of fitness. Another important factor is the weather conditions you might experience in the Himalayan region. There are various adverse effects of cold weather, including snowfall. In the case of extreme temperatures, it may drop below – 15 degrees celsius.

Besides, you will also need to travel through thick layers of snow, especially if you travel in the winter season. You will get heavy precipitation and overcast skies in the monsoon season, leading to low visibility and further delays. In these cases, there are abundant chances of delays and cancellations.

So, in this case, you will have to keep some patience. However, a helicopter flight is much more ideal and can fly even in low visibility conditions when compared to an airplane flight. So, you will have to tackle these difficulties during the journey. The high altitude makes it quite a challenge.

Since you will be traveling to the Everest base camp in a short amount of time, you will gain lots of altitudes. The EBC remains located at an elevation above 5000 meters, whereas the city of Kathmandu remains situated around 1400m. So, the amount of altitude difference is quite significant. Altitude sickness symptoms include nausea, vomit, headache, and dizziness.

One pro tip is taking preventive measures like Diamox tablets (anti-nausea medication). You can travel freely without any discomfort as medical first aid, and emergency facilities are available. Our Everest base camp helicopter flight landing tour team will have all these logistics covered. The cost of this heli tour is relatively high compared to a luxury tour.

Ideal Time for Mount Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour
