    Trip Overview

    “Embark on a luxurious Everest Heli Tour with Himalaya Land Treks and witness breathtaking panoramic views of the Khumbu region, including the world's tallest mountain, Mt. Everest. Avoid the crowds and enjoy a lavish ride while exploring the natural beauty of Sagarmatha National Park.”

    The Khumbu region is a popular destination for tourists, particularly during the spring and autumn seasons when hundreds of trekkers flock to the area to climb or view Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain. However, if you're looking for an alternative to trekking and want to avoid the crowds, consider the Everest Heli Tour offered by Himalaya Land Treks.

    On this tour, you can indulge in a luxurious helicopter ride while taking in breathtaking views of the Everest ranges and the natural scenery of Sagarmatha National Park. In just a few hours, you can explore the Everest region and view other majestic peaks like Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Nuptse, and of course, Mt. Everest itself.

    To begin the tour, you'll wake up early and head to the domestic airport to board the helicopter. As you depart from Kathmandu Valley, you'll begin to see the mountains in the Ganesh, Langtang, and Gauri Shankar ranges. It takes about an hour to reach the Khumbu region, where you'll land at Kalapatthar. Here, you can enjoy panoramic views of some of the world's highest peaks, including Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Ama Dablam.

    While the views are incredible, it's essential to be mindful of altitude sickness. Since the tour stops at Kalapatthar at an altitude of 5545 meters, participants need to be cautious about their physical health. Additionally, while the tour can be enjoyed at any time of the year, it's best to schedule your trip during the spring or autumn seasons for optimal weather conditions.

    The cost and time duration of the Everest Heli Tour offered by Himalaya Land Treks may vary depending on the package you choose. However, as a general guideline, the cost for the tour can range from $1250 to $1350 USD per person, and the duration of the tour is typically around 4-5 hours.

    During the tour, you will fly from Kathmandu to the Khumbu region and land at Kalapatthar, where you can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Mt. Everest (8848.86m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Nuptse (7861m), Ama Dablam (6856m), and other Himalayan mountains. You will have a chance to explore the area and have breakfast while taking in the stunning views.

    It's important to note that the Everest Heli Tour makes a stop at Kalapatthar at an altitude of 5545 meters, so participants should be careful about altitude sickness. Himalaya Land Treks takes safety very seriously and has experienced guides to help you avoid any altitude-related issues.

    Everest Heli Tour Best Time

    September to November is considered the best time for Everest helicopter tours. The weather is generally clear with stable conditions, and the visibility is excellent for viewing the stunning mountain scenery. The temperature during the day is mild and comfortable, but it can get quite cold at night. Autumn is also the time when many festivals take place in Nepal, including Dashain and Tihar.

    December to February in the Himalayas can be quite cold, with temperatures dropping below freezing point. However, the skies are often clear, and you can get stunning views of snow-capped mountains. Helicopter tours in winter can be a bit challenging due to the possibility of snowfall and poor visibility.

    Spring (March to May) is another excellent season for Everest helicopter tours. The weather is mild, and the visibility is excellent, offering spectacular views of the mountains. However, the spring season can also bring some rain and occasional snowfall at higher elevations.

    Summer (June to August) is the monsoon season in Nepal, and the weather can be quite unpredictable. Heavy rainfalls and low clouds can obscure mountain views. But, if you're lucky, you can catch a clear day with spectacular views of the mountains.
