Autumn and Spring is the best time for the Everest Helicopter tour because in this season the weather is clear and offers mesmerizing views of the mountain including Mt.Everest. 

The elevation of EBC is 5364m from the sea level.

A captain and five passengers are allowed onboard the chopper during the Everest Base Camp Heli Tour. From Kathmandu to Lukla, 500 kilograms is the maximum passenger weight. A 250 kg weight restriction applies from Lukla to Kala Patthar/base camp. As a result, we must fly two shuttles from Lukla, each spitting a body weight of 250 kg.

Mt. Everest’s summit is located 8,848 meters above sea level. Sub-freezing temperatures, hurricane-force winds, and air pressure are just a few of the variables that make it difficult to operate the helicopter around Everest. In addition, the air is too thin at such a high altitude, preventing most helicopters from producing enough lift to maintain flight. 

We will therefore fly between 5,000 and 5,500 meters above the ground during the Everest Base Camp Helicopter ride. However, keep in mind that the helicopter’s engine power will also affect how high it can fly.

At a height of 8,848 meters, a helicopter cannot be taken during the Kathmandu Everest Helicopter Tour. Apparently, the helicopter couldn’t push enough air to take off because of the tiny layer of air over Hillary’s step. So, it is hard for the chopper to go close to the summit due to the unstable weather and a thin layer of air.

But, viewing the majestic Mt. Everest from the Everest Base Camp on a helicopter tour with landing is a fantastic way to get near enough. Most crucially, you can travel by helicopter to the base camp and then return to Kathmandu in a single day. After passing past the base camp, you will arrive at Kala Patthar. We will spend a short while there and capture a few pictures purely for memory

You will have ten to twenty minutes to take in the beauty of the Mountains while the helicopter engine continues to run.
