FAQs

EBC Helicopter Tour Safety

Traveling to 5,643 meters, where Everest’s base camp is located, is an extreme adventure.

Our helicopter ride to Everest Base Camp is one of the safest tours available, we promise. And, those who are differently abled or otherwise unable to make the physical demands of the hike to Everest base camp may find this excursion ideal.

Best Time for EBC Helicopter Tour

Everest Region is located at a lofty height, hence the climate there is constantly shifting. Our flight to Nepal from India will just take a few hours, so we shouldn’t let that stop us from seeing the Himalaya. However, the flight cannot be carried out if fog or rain is present. If we can’t see the mountain range and other distinctive features clearly from the sky, there’s no purpose in flying.

If we had to choose, the best times to take a trip to the Everest region would be in the spring or fall. The weather is typically clear and sunny at certain times of year. Rain is less likely, and humidity levels are low. A deep blanket of snow enhances the alpine landscape in the winter. If you are unable to travel in the spring, then you might try again in the winter. But July is not a good time for a helicopter ride. The weather is the least predictable it can be, with heavy rain and constant changes.

Altitude Sickness during EBC Helicopter Tour

Due to the stringent safety measures that will be taken, you will have a very low risk of developing AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), generally known as altitude sickness. In the event that you have symptoms of altitude sickness, basic first aid will be administered. In the event that your condition deteriorates, you will be relocated to a lower altitude area or brought directly to Kathmandu. Extra care will be offered from there if required.
