    A sightseeing tour of Kathmandu Valley is organized before your helicopter tour. On this tour, you'll drive to Kathmandu Durbar Square, where you'll witness the centuries-old architecture and a series of ancient temples.

    When is the best time for this trip?

    Did the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour spark your interest? Are you wondering which is the best season to get the most out of this tour? Well, we are here to clarify this topic.

    The ideal time for the Everest Base Camp Heli Tour is undoubtedly the spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) seasons. These seasons offer the best views with clear blue skies and favorable weather conditions.

    As the weather will be harsh during the monsoon (June-August) and winter (December-February) seasons, exploring during these seasons is not recommended. Going on a helicopter ride during these times can even pose safety concerns. The mountains will also hide behind the thick clouds, and you won’t be able to make the most out of your tour.

    Alternative Tours

    It is always good to have options to explore, isn’t it? We have some similar yet unique helicopter tour packages that you would want to look into.

    The Everest Helicopter Tour is the alternate option that you can look into. It is a 3-hour helicopter ride to the highest viewpoint in the Everest region, Kala Pathar. This tour skips the visit to Gokyo Lake and the sightseeing tour in Kathmandu. It takes you directly to fly over the Himalayas.

    We also have the Everest View Heli Tour for you to delve into. You can complete this tour in 5 days. The tour includes a flight to Lukla, Hiking to Everest View Hotel, exploring the Khumjung village, and a heli ride back to Kathmandu.

    Regardless of the tour you choose, we will make it an unforgettable experience in the Himalayas for you. So, mark your calendar and embark on the heli tours in Nepal with us.
