Introduction:

The Everest base camp Helicopter tour is an adventure of a lifetime. Everest, the highest mountain in the world, is so popular that a helicopter drops you off at its base. It is untrue that this tour is exclusively for wealthy individuals. We provide a joining tour, which costs between US $1300 and $1500. The base camp and the helicopter are the tour's highlights, and we'll introduce them to you below:

Note: we have a 5% Discount on Christmas, New Year, and  International Everest Day

Three Everest Base camp

The map shows us two Everest base camps. The term "South base camp" also refers to this base camp located in Nepal. Everest is referred to as Sagarmatha in Nepali. The Sagarmatha base camp is another name for the Everest base camp. The second is the new Everest base camp; the first is the old Everest base camp. Standing at 5364 meters above sea level are both Everest base camps.

The Tibet side of Everest Base Camp is another. The North Base Camp is another name for this base camp. It is located 5150 meters above sea level. Chomolungma base camp, also called Everest Chomolungma by the Chinese and Tibetan people, is another name for this base camp in Tibet. The one we currently visit is the recently established Everest base camp.

Recent Everest base camp (EBC) on the Nepal Side

The expedition crew set up camp in a tent at Everest Base Camp. While ascending Everest, the highest peak in the world, the climbers set up a tent camp. Situated under the Khumbu ice fall on the Khumbu glacier lies the Everest base camp. Trekkers and tourists now frequently visit the Nepali side of the mountain's New Recent Everest Base Camp (EBC). At the new base camp, the climbers also set up a tent camp.

Because of this perspective, people are favouring the new base camps over the older ones. From the new base camp, we get a little better view of Everest than from the old one. There are expedition routes close to the new base camp.

The base camp is not a permanent location; instead, it shifts annually in response to glacier fluctuations. There are thousands of tents and climbers waiting for the trips during the spring climbing season.

Helicopter / Chopper Meaning

A type of rotorcraft is a helicopter. Rotors provide the thrust and lift. It is also referred to as choppers. The helicopter can fly and land vertically thanks to its rotors. This permits flying laterally, forwardly, and backward in addition to hovering.

The French word "HELICOPTER" is where the English word "helicopter" originated. Helicopters go by various names in English, including Chopper, copter, Helo, Heli, and Whirlybird.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Flight

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour flight is the most popular tour in the Himalayas with Nepal's top helicopter operator. You will be standing on the edge of eight thousand mountains when you are at Everest Base Camp. This will make you appreciate nature's magnificent shades and beauty. Although it was only available to wealthy individuals a few years ago, the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour is today quite popular and is taken by many.

Many are limited to taking on the challenge of trekking to Everest base camp if they lack adequate physical fitness. Some individuals who are unsure of their level of physical fitness put in a lot of practice and effort before going. Some travelers choose to combine yoga and fitness with their Everest base camp visit, while others choose to travel in luxury.

Many individuals won't be able to reach base camp despite putting in a lot of training and hard work, which is a waste of time and money. Therefore, the helicopter tour to Everest Base Camp is crucial to realizing people's dreams and drawing their attention.

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour is an ideal substitute for difficult routes and other forms of altitude sickness. This helicopter tour highlights a new aspect of the majestic peaks and allows one to capture the beauty of Everest.

This helicopter landing trip to base camp is a great option for a quick flying vacation for thrill seekers. Join Magic Himalaya Treks if being at the base camp is your desire. Enjoy the finest that the magnificent Himalayas have to offer in safety and security.

First Phase: Pick Up and Transfer to Kathmandu Airport (5:15 to 6:00 am)

How far you stay from TIA Airport will determine the pick-up time. Thamel is a simple spot to choose from. Our employees will pick you up in a car with a driver at your hotel and drive you to the airport. The weather and tower alarm are other factors that affect the pick-up.

Second Phase: Morning briefing with flight instructor (6:15 am to 7:15)

The flight instructor will give a briefing before you board the helicopter. You will be informed of the safety protocols for helicopters by her/him. You are welcome to ask any questions you may have during the session. The Pilot will identify himself and provide you with some last, crucial information later. Then it's time to get ready for takeoff and board the helicopter.

Third Phase: Fly to Lukla and ascend to Everest base camp & Kalapather - Fly Back to Kathmandu. (7:15 am to 11:30 am)

We are about to board our helicopter flight out of Kathmandu. The chopper takes off from Kathmandu and flies east to the Lukla airfield in the Solukhambu area. Some breathtaking mountains, including Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung, and Gauri Sanker, will be traversed.

Additionally, locations like Lamjura Pass, Ramechhap, Junbensi, and the well-known Jiri—also referred to as the Switzerland of Nepal—will be visible to us. After arriving at Lukla, the flight makes a quick landing to refuel which takes 15 to 20 minutes. Here, we can stretch, look around, and use the restrooms.

We will fly above some densely forested areas and over picturesque Sherpa villages. The view from the aircraft is magical: verdant hills and valleys, dotted with snow-capped mountains that loom large over the sky. The highest point you will reach on your Everest helicopter tour is Kala Patthar.

The landing in Kala Patthar takes around ten minutes and is amazing. You can take in breathtaking vistas and capture images and videos of Everest. Hereafter, the helicopter takes off from Kalapather, crosses Everest Base Camp, and lands at Syangbochea Airport.

The world's highest hotel, which is also listed in the Guinness World Record book, is located just above the heliport.

Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Service with Safety & Security

Everest Base Camp Trek Vs Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Vs Everest Base Camp Heli Trek

The goals of all three of these trips are to get to Everest's base camp and get up close to the majestic mountain. One of these three completes this task in 12 days, another in 8, and a third in a single day.

One of the shortest trips in Nepal, lasting only a day, is the helicopter tour to the base of Mount Everest. We provide a more than a week-long trip that includes the Everest Base Camp Trek and the Everest Base Camp Heli Trek. In this case, the one-day tour is more expensive than the two lengthier treks.

While the other two involve a mix of trek and heli ride, the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour does not include any walking. Hiking, walking, and taking in the mountain views are all perfectly combined on the Everest base camp Trek and Everest base camp Heli Trek. For the Everest base camp Trek and helicopter return, we do not need to arrange a return airline ticket. But, we do need to book both directions plane flights for the Everest Base Camp Trek.

While accommodation is not required for a single day of the Heli Tour, it is for the other two treks. For the Heli Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek, we require a certain licensed trekking guide; an Everest helicopter tour is not necessary. The three journeys' respective cost differences are as follows:

The cost of an Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour ranges from $1300 to $6,000 depending on private options and sharing.

The cost of the Everest base camp Trek ranges from $1250 to $2300, depending on standard, budget, and basic luxury options. We can arrange for five stars in Kathmandu and perhaps five stars in the Everest Summit Lodge and Everest View Hotel, for a total of $5,000 USD per person.

The price range for the Everest Base Camp Heli Trek, based on standard, budget, and basic luxury options, is $2500 to $3000 USD. We are also able to provide five-star services while lodging in five-star hotels.

You can find the right Everest base camp trek operator for a successful visit.


Adventure Sports at Everest (extreme sports)

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour is a simple activity that breaks no records. Numerous winter activities and adventures have traditionally taken place on Mount Everest. In addition to mountaineering, we can engage in snowboarding, ice hockey, skating, skiing, paragliding, and base camping.

The first person to hang glide off a mountain is Steve Mckinney. The first person to paraglide down Mount Everest was Jean-Marc Boivin, a Frenchman. This journey was completed in 1988. Two Nepalis glided down from the summit of Everest in 2011. The descent of 5000 meters takes them 45 minutes.

There are other lots of Adventure sports at Everest which happened but many people don't know about.

Select the top networks to take the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour if you are a blogger or YouTuber.


Toilet Facilities during the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

Compared to other treks or walking vacations, toilets on the Everest base camp helicopter tour are a little more complex. All of the guest hotels have bathrooms for the trek and walking vacations, but when we are conducting Heli flights, we can use the restrooms at Kathmandu Airport, Lukla Airport, or the Everest View Hotel. It is best to check into your hotel in Kathmandu first, then drive to the airport.

There are public restrooms available at airports in the buildings housing the domestic terminals. Additionally, the airport in Lukla has restrooms. If you plan to remain for a while, you can also use the restrooms at the neighbourhood tea house in Lukla. There is a tea house with restrooms a short stroll from the landing area in Pheriche.

While using the natural environment for brief toilets is not ideal, there are other possibilities. The only options available to you when arriving at Kala Patthar are to use the five-star restrooms at the Everest View Hotel or to utilize the outdoors.


Drinking Water During Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour flights

After air, water is the second most essential element for life. Since water covers 71% of the earth's surface, water is seen everywhere. The ocean contains 96.5 percent of the water in them.

Since it is not possible to drink all water, we must use caution when doing so. Water quality is another important consideration for us to keep in mind when on the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour.

You have to ask pilots, which is inconvenient, or you can ask some people to bring by offering them money. You have to stroll in the direction of the tea house in Pheriche if you wish to purchase it. On the side of the heliport, there is a river that flows, however it is not drinkable.

The water in Thukla, Gorakshep, Lobuche, and Jongla may be contaminated due to their settlement. The Everest View Hotel has the greatest places to get water. Given that this is a five-star hotel, the water is quite pricey.

Thus, the easiest, most comfortable, and safest thing to do is to carry your water bottle.


Guide, Driver, and Porters for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Flight

On the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour, a guide is not present. Porter is not required for the tour by helicopter. We need a driver to take us to the airport and pick you up after the tour since it is a day trip.

Some people like to explain mountains using their guide. We shall thus offer the greatest guide in the best English at that time. To ensure that everything is taken care of, the guide must be well-versed in both the route and the mountains. Take a guide with you if you are on a private trek and there is room for one. Having guides for the travel is worthwhile.


Our Responsibility for Environmental Conservation

Currently, a large number of tourists travel to the Everest region. Entire nations are blessed by nature with Mount Everest and scenic destinations in the Everest region. We have to maintain a balance between the environment and people in order to preserve them and keep them secure. Everyone ought to be aware of our duty to protect the environment.

The Magic Himalaya Trekking Company in Nepal is certain that proper environmental protection is necessary. We must endeavour to improve the beneficial features of tourism on the environment because trekking and tourism have a lot of negative effects on the ecosystem.

Magic Himalaya consistently carries out this task in collaboration with other organisations, including the Kathmandu Environment Education Project (KEEP).

Our organization participates in various cleaning and plantation activities. We must always take action to protect the environment by planning Eco-friendly hikes and excursions.

Our company also provides instant employment to many people from the Everest region. Profits from our company are donated to charitable causes. Soar with Magic Himalaya while indirectly contributing to charity.

If you are taking the helicopter tour to the Everest Base Camp, then you should also volunteer and fulfil your duty to the environment by helping out with such projects.


Physical Requirements for People Undertaking Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour lasts for one day, not including the nights spent in Kathmandu. We will need around three hours for the flight, and we will need about four hours altogether, including breakfast and viewing time. It will also take us around an hour to drive to and from the Kathmandu airport. Occasionally, we have to wait for the weather to clear at the airport.

It is not necessary for participants in the Everest helicopter tour to be physically fit, although it is acceptable for them to do so. It's wise to speak with a doctor prior to a tour to learn about any underlying heart, lung, or blood conditions. It can be fatal at any time.

If someone is interested in getting in shape, aerobic training, running, and swimming are suggested. This is helpful in everyday life as well as on this journey.


A Typical Day for a Successful Helicopter Tour

You will be rewarded with a spectacular and unique experience of taking a heli flight and witnessing breathtaking scenery if you choose the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. This is also a well-liked luxury tour that offers fantastic photo opportunities of the surrounding towns and mountains.

A clear day with a nice view of the mountains is required for a helicopter tour. We need clear weather in Kathmandu so that we can fly to Lukla airport in order to begin the tour.

We must finish the helicopter ride before the clouds appear because the weather in the Everest region is generally pleasant in the morning. In order to ensure a successful helicopter tour to the Everest base camp, we must steer clear of rainy days in the highlands and in Kathmandu.

In order to determine what will happen on any given day, we have to check the weather forecast. Although Nepal's weather forecasts are not always accurate, they can offer some guidance on the ideal days to take helicopter tours. For the once-in-a-lifetime Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour experience, be mindful and pick a clear day.

EBC Flight Landing Tour 2024-2025

We envision and aspire to run a great deal more base camp helicopter trips in 2024, along with many different treks. Following all guidelines and directives issued by the Nepali government, we set out on the tour and trek with great success.

We can happily declare that every participant in the Magic Himalaya Treks has received two vaccinations: the Johnson and Johnson COVID-19 vaccine and the Vero cell vaccine, which is sourced from China. Along with following safety guidelines, we operate a variety of tours.

More about the New Helicopter Tour in the Market

For both domestic and foreign tourists, there is a fantastic new trip available. Undoubtedly, learning more about the new trip in the industry is intriguing. The latest tour that we are discussing is the Landing Heli tour to Everest base camp.

A recently established one-day activity in Nepal is a helicopter tour of Everest base camp that includes landing. We constantly emphasize this day tour when we talk about the latest tours available in the market.

It is primarily concentrated on touring Everest's base camp and making stops to take breathtaking photos. We'll pause to take in the views of the Everest region from several vantage points of the Himalayan range.

One convenient approach to enter the Everest base camp is via the helicopter landing tour. Many people avoid numerous fruitless attempts to stay at base camp by taking this journey. It also avoids wasting money on a failed attempt and saves time.

Altitude sickness is a significant issue that hikers to Everest and other high mountains encounter. Taking a helicopter tour spares you from these issues. All age groups can enjoy the daily Everest deluxe helicopter tour. Both elderly folks and those with poor physical fitness can experience it.

For those who are short on time but have always wanted to visit base camp and see the highest mountain view in the world, this tour is excellent. We offer an Everest base camp trek by helicopter for those who would want to trek and return by helicopter.


Passport and Visa Requirements

Visitors must have both a passport and a visa in order to travel outside of their country. It is necessary to have a passport that is valid for at least six months after the return date. You can apply for a visa to Nepal through Nepalese embassies or consulates in your own country.

When you arrive at Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport, Nepal also provides an arrival visa. A few nations require their citizens to apply for a Nepalese visa from within their own nation.

Depending on where you are from, obtaining a visa is entirely your duty. Those nations are as follows:

  • Afghanistan
  • Cameroon
  • Eswatini
  • Ghana
  • Iraq
  • Liberia
  • Nigeria
  • Palestine
  • Somalia
  • Seria
  • Zimbabwe

Additionally, you must provide your passport information accurately when making your reservation, as we will require it to obtain the required licenses, tickets, and other documents on your behalf.

Be prepared with your original passport or a duplicate before you go on a tour, as permits for the Everest base camp helicopter tour are also required from the Everest View Hotel.


​Acute Mountain Sickness

When traveling to high elevations, one of the biggest concerns is acute mountain sickness, or AMS. As far as we are aware, the Everest base camp helicopter tour also travels more than 5,000 meters, arriving at Kala Patthar View stop (5450 m) or on Everest base camp (5364 m).

Because the body cannot adapt to the temperature, altitude, or habitat when flying at such altitudes, the outcome could be fatal. Thus, before traveling to such altitudes, keep in mind to educate yourself on altitude sickness and its prevention.

The following is a list of symptoms that people experience on the helicopter tour to EBC that you should be aware of. Additionally, we have discussed the preventive measures:

Symptoms of Altitude Sickness

  • Difficulty in sleeping
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Nausea or Vomiting
  • Shortness of breath with exertion

Preventive Measures

  • Keep yourself hydrate
  • Do not drink alcoholic beverages
  • Do not hide your problems or illness
  • Try to spend a night in low elevations
  • Do not push yourself

Breakfast Options during the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

Helicopter Landing Stop

Following takeoff from Kathmandu International Airport, the aircraft lands in Lukla. At Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla, all helicopters land and arrive. The elevation of the Lukla Airport is 2860 meters above sea level.

For more than twenty years, this airport has been ranked as the most dangerous. This area sees a lot of helicopter accidents and disasters. At this airport, regular flights and planes have crashed as well. This location is home to numerous helicopter landing stops.

The Everest View Hotel will be the location of the helicopter's next landing. It is situated 3860 meters above sea level. The hotel is an exquisite Japanese establishment catering to both high-end travelers and luxury travelers.

This hotel is used by a lot of travelers who are trekking to Everest Base Camp. This is where everyone who is enjoying the Everest helicopter tour package will eat breakfast and take in the views of Mount Everest.

Kala Patthar's perspective will be the next destination. Watch the Kala Patthar video. There's no way the chopper can land on top. Every helicopter lands at an altitude of around 5450 meters in the center of Kala Patthar Hill.

This vantage position offers a close-up and expansive perspective. You may also view the base camp from the Khumbu icefall. The helicopter lands on base camp as well if the weather is consistent. On the Everest base camp, helicopter landings are uncommon. Everyone wants to avoid taking the danger of landing at base camp.

You get a sense of walking on top of the base camp and the Khumbu glacier during the helicopter flyby. After this amazing excursion, the Everest base camp helicopter returns.

Additionally, we are the finest at organizing the Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour. The following list identifies the potential four landing locations for the helicopter:

First Landing Point – Lukla Airport

Numerous landing sites are available in the Everest Himalayan regions for the Everest base camp helicopter tour. The first place on Everest to land is at Lukla Airport. If all goes according to plan and the weather holds, the helicopter will land at Lukla airport first, having taken off from Kathmandu.

In the event of an emergency or severe weather, it must divert or land somewhere along the route. If the weather is terrible in Lukla, the best chances of landing are at Surkhe.

Storing fuel is the primary reason for landing in Lukla rather than using a heavyweight aircraft. If necessary, the pilot and passenger are also permitted to use the restroom. In addition, pilots are able to communicate and monitor the weather conditions above.

Second Landing Point - Pheriche

The helicopter takes off from Lukla and flies in the direction of Pheriche, the second landing site. We pass over Phakding, Monjo, Tangboche, Pangboche, and the Hillary Suspension Bridge in our flight. At a height of 4371 meters above sea level, Pheriche is located. Because the helicopter can only carry 240 kilograms, or three persons, the primary reason for landing here is to leave some weight behind.

Here, the helicopter stops for twenty minutes, giving you a chance to take some amazing photos. Amadablam, Lobucha Peak, Cholatse, Toubecha, Chola, Long Pheriche Village, and several snow-capped mountains are visible.

Third Landing Point – Kala Patthar

From here, the limited-weight helicopter crosses Thukla, Thukla pass, Lobuche, the Italian pyramid house, and Gorakshep on its way to Kala Patther. The third landing possibility for this Heli trip is upon reaching Kala Patther. The most photogenic 360-degree panorama view is available here. The massive Everest is visible up close. The best and closest view of Mount Everest (8848.86 m) is from this location.

This will be our 20 to 30 minute stop. The helicopter will land at base camp if the weather is ideal, but you must request it from the pilot to do so.

Fourth Landing point – Everest View Hotel

The helicopter returns to the Everest View Hotel after the commemorative landing on Kala Patthar or Everest base camp. The elevation of the Everest View Hotel is 3880 meters. You can have breakfast here while taking in the breathtaking view of Mount Everest.

We can see several more mountains in addition to Everest, including Lhotse Shar, Ama Dablam, Toubecha, Lhotse, and Thamserku. The helicopter makes a last or finishing touchdown in Kathmandu, Nepal, after landing in Lukla for refuelling on the way back.


Weight Limit on Helicopter Flight

There is a weight restriction on the Everest base camp helicopter tour. The danger of flying higher and carrying more weight is the reason behind this regulation.

With five passengers, the helicopter can carry a maximum of 500 kilograms. At higher altitudes, the helicopter's carry capacity is lowered to 240 kg. It has the ability to decrease from 500 kg to 250 kg while flying above 4000 meters.

There is enough space for up to five people in the helicopter. If the flight is carrying three people or fewer, a helicopter will fly directly from Lukla to the Everest base camp. Three persons must weigh no more than 250 kg combined.

We also need to perform two shuttles from Pheriche if there are more than three persons and/or if the weight is beyond 250 kg. The additional shuttle came with additional fees. The cost of the group Everest Base Camp Helicopter tour is split among the participants, while the private trip is extra and paid for separately.


Everest Helicopter tour Best flight Route

One of the most affordable helicopter tours to Everest base camp is the one-day helicopter landing tour. The helicopter flight to Everest base camp is another name for it. When taking the helicopter tour of the Everest base camp, we have to pass past these villages and locations.

Kathmandu airport – Bhaktapur – Nagarkot – Jiri – Junbensi – Lukla – Nemcha – Tengboche – Pangbochea – Ferichea – Lobuche – Gorakshep – Kala Patthar – Everest Base Camp – Khumbu Glacier – Everest View Hotel – Lukla – Kathmandu. The route to Everest base camp by helicopter is divided into four (4) Phases which are mentioned below:

First Phase

The Everest base camp helicopter journey begins from the hotel in Kathmandu. We will travel in private cars to the airport, where we will take off over the Kathmandu Valley and land in the well-known Sherpa settlement of Lukla, which is also the entrance to the Everest base camp.

Second Phase

We will fly to Namche Bazaar after refueling at Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla. Namche Bazaar is the capital of the Sherpa people and looks incredible from a helicopter.

The helicopter will land at Kala Patthar after passing over Namche, the Old Tengboche Buddhist monastery, Pangboche village, Pheriche, Thukla, Lobuche, and Gorakshep.

Third phase

It's time to leave after taking in the breathtaking vista of Kala Patthar and capturing some quality images and videos. We will fly above the Khumbu glaciers and make our way to base camp after taking off from Kala Patthar.

After that, we'll take off again and land at the Everest View Hotel for breakfast. We'll spend some time here enjoying the scenery and breakfast.

Fourth phase

Following our meal, we will take a flight via Namche Bazaar to Lukla. After a brief fuel break in Lukla, we'll fly back to Kathmandu while seeing a lot of beautiful sights. Once we land, we'll travel to the airport and meet up with Magic Himalaya staff, who will then transport us back to the Thamel hotel.


Time Estimation for Heli Tour

The number of passengers and the type of helicopter will determine how long it takes to travel. Certain helicopters are more powerful and fly faster than others, whereas some helicopters fly a little bit slower. Thus, there is not a particular time for arriving at specific locations.

The weather also affects the time difference between helicopters when choosing different routes. The following is the approximate amount of time needed for a base camp helicopter tour.

  • Kathmandu to Lukla Takes 45 minutes around.
  • Lukla's landing and then fueling time is around 5-20 minutes
  • Flying Lukla to Everest view hotel is around 15 minutes
  • Everest view hotel to Everest base camp is around 20 minutes
  • Landing at Kalapather viewpoint is 5 to 10 minutes
  • Kalapather to Everest view hotel is 15 minutes
  • Landing at Everest view hotel for breakfast is around 30 to 40 minutes
  • Everest view hotel to Lukla is 15 minutes
  • Lukla to Kathmandu is 45 minutes

You must travel to the airport from Thamel or any other location in order to enjoy a helicopter tour. Since Thamel is a popular tourist destination, this is where we also calculate journey times. It takes 20 to 30 minutes in the morning to go from Thamel to the airport; however, traffic on the way back could make it take an hour or longer.

The Everest base camp helicopter tour from Kathmandu takes four to five hours overall.


Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour Budget

The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour makes it clear that this is not an inexpensive excursion or package. Spending a helicopter landing tour to Everest base camp and Kala Patthar viewpoint is an expensive experience for people all around the world.

The private helicopter is used for this helicopter tour by those who are wealthy and like luxury travel. The Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour is available to those who can afford it and who prefer to be safe. The joining fee, which runs between $900 and $1200 USD, is still quite expensive.

A cheap helicopter tour to the Everest base camp is not available. In Nepal, the Joining Everest base camp helicopter tour is regarded as an affordable helicopter tour.

The best months to go on this journey on a budget are January, February, June, July, and August. These are the off-peak months. However, the weather isn't ideal this time around. Many people don't travel during the off-season, and the helicopter is inactive.

We can request a better budget price if we can accommodate the four to five people who wish to participate in the off-season. Rather than remaining idle, they accept $600 USD each individual.

Magic Himalaya Treks is the company to remember if you're ever looking for an affordable Everest base camp helicopter tour in Nepal. We'll try our best to locate a budget friendly helicopter tour that visits Kala Patthar and Everest base camp.


Packing List for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

There will be sunlight and a pleasant temperature during the day. However, during bad weather, you will have discomfort in addition to coldness. This is the outfit list we suggest for the Everest base camp helicopter tour:

Important Notice about Flight Shuttle

Prior to anything else, you should be aware of this Flight Shuttle Important Notice. You need to be clear regarding the helicopter shuttle. The helicopter always has a weight restriction when flying. The flight weight is dependent on the altitude at which the helicopter is operating.

At high altitudes like those of Everest or Annapurna, the helicopter's weight limit is less than that of the Terai Regions of Nepal. Thus, the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, is the subject of our discussion. Five paying passengers can ride in the helicopter during the Everest base camp helicopter tour. However, three persons or more weight cannot be carried at high altitudes (250 kg).

In order to transport passengers to Everest Base Camp, we first fly in a helicopter loaded with guests to the Everest View Hotel. Out of the five individuals, two or three will remain in the Everest View Hotel, while the remaining three will do the First Shuttle journey.

Once more, those who are finished stay at the Everest hotel and have breakfast, while others board the Second shuttle, the next available shuttle.

The double shuttle is necessary and the cost is higher than the single shuttle if the helicopter is carrying a full complement of passengers. The Double Shuttle Helicopter Tour costs between US $4300 and US $5,000. The price range for the single shuttle is $3900 to $4400 USD.

REMEMBER: ALL THE PRICES ARE FOR HELICOPTERs NOT PER PERSON.

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.

No, It is not possible to do the Everest base camp helicopter landing tour as soon as the lockdown is over. The first thing is the lockdown is not fixed how long it gonna remains. It will remain until no corona cases in Nepal. The second thing is flights are banned in Nepal from international boundaries.

This will not open until the coronavirus ended in all nations. So, right now it is very difficult to let you know when we can start operating the Everest Heli landing tour. As soon as the lockdown and international flight restrictions are over we will start taking bookings as well as operate.

Climbing Everest is very dangerous and brings lots of destruction if the weather is bad. Everest is very technical and needs proper arrangements for success whereas Everest base camp trek is less dangerous and has many obstacles along the way.

The biggest threat to the base camp trek is altitude sickness, weather, and a few other problems along the way. in comparison to both the Everest base camp helicopter tour is less dangerous. It is an easy day trip that is only harmed by wind and bad weather for a clear view.

Nepal Government has decided to reopen domestic as well as international flights despite corona cases in Nepal. Nepal government has planned to open domestic flights from 5th August 2020 whereas all international flights will start from 17th August 2020. If you are looking for a flight to and from Nepal, you are welcome. We have all trekking open in Nepal after the coronavirus.

Nepal Government had to make a decision of opening domestic as well as international flights to control and manage other problems in Nepal that came out after COVID-19. The problems seen after coronavirus is the income sources of all people engaged in this field from porters, guide, hotel staff as well as owners.

There is not a single penny as an income but the expenses such as food, rent & living are there for all. If we cannot come to have income then life will be hard for them as well as the country's economy will go down. To avoid such problems for people and nations, the Nepal government has decided to open flights and operate tourism by taking safety measures.

Yes, there is news about the Everest base camp changes on BBC, CNN, and many other news Channels. Magic Himalaya Treks team recently been to base camp and found a base camp at the same place where it used to be last time. It might change soon because the glacier is moving and changing its shape. We all know that the base camp change with glacier moves.

Yes the group Joining Heli landed many places. The reason behind landing at Everest view hotel is to drop 2 people there and take only three people. The helicopter only carries 270 kg at high elevations. Those who stay at the Everest view hotel can walk and enjoy the view of the Himalayan range and take some pictures and videos of the surrounding.

You might able to see some animals in the Everest region especially here is a chance to see Himalayan Tahr. The flights only take 8 minutes from Everest view hotel to Kalapather or Everest base camp. After returning back it will again take other remaining people and come back before returning back. Sometimes it does land in Ferichea too.

There are currently 11 licensed helicopter companies in Nepal according to the report of CAAN. CAAN stands for Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal.

During the Everest base camp helicopter tour, If you are in an emergency then dial 100 on your phone and ask for the helicopter. The 100 is the emergency number of the police. If it is not that serious then you can find different helicopter companies on Google or Facebook. you can call them directly or book through a travel company.

There is no regular flight from Pokhara to Everest base camp. If you want to do a private helicopter tour then it is possible. You have to fly Pokhara to Kathmandu and then continue. We can also fly from Pokhara to Lukla but we need to make sure about fueling

We have lots of day hiking and tour inside Kathmandu valley. Kathmandu city sightseeing tour is one among the best one which let you knew more about Kathmandu along with UNESCO world heritage sites.
