Water is the second most important things to live after the air.You can see water everywhere because71% of earth surface is covered with water. Among them 96.5 percent of water is hold by ocean. All water is not possible to drink so we need to be careful while drinking water. We need to take good care of Drinking water during Everest base camp helicopter tour flights also. We recommend people to carry a bottle of water while going for flights. They can take water from hotel or can buy on the way to airport also. There are also possibilities of buying at Kathmandu airport. After reaching lukla the flights land at airport and if you want to buy water it’s a big process which might be confusing. You can ask some people to bring by giving money or you have to ask pilots which are annoying. In ferichea also if you want to buy you have to walk towards the teahouse. You can see flowing river on side of heliport but it’s not clean. The settlement of thukla, Gorekhap, loubecha and jongla might polluted the water because it coming from those area. The best options of getting water are in Everest view hotel. The water is very expensive here because it’s a five star category hotel.

So, the best thing is you carry your water bottle which is easy, comfortable and safe.

Answer: The Everest base camp helicopter tour is run with an aim to provide the landing facility to travelers at base camp. We will surely land on the Everest base camp. We also recommend land on Kalapather is worth it. The base camp doesn’t have a view on Everest but Kalapather has a 360-degree mountain view including Everest and Everest base camp. The land on base camp also depends on wind speed. Some time the landslides damage the landing space on base camp. In those cases, we will fly just over the base camp nearly touching the glacier of the base camp which makes us feel like being on Everest base camp. To have landed on base camp, we need to be very lucky with everything from weather, wind speed to the landing place.

We also check the oxygen cylinder regularly so we will have smooth operations and no one have to suffer from no oxygen on high altitude. Our helicopter will also supply oxygen cylinderf to the hotels situated on different p[laces on everst trails as well as other trekking trails in Nepal.
