Best time to do Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour
Climate and weather conditions play an essential role in helicopter tours to Everest Base Camp. The weather around the base camp area is always changing and unpredictable. Different seasons will offer you different experiences during this helicopter tour. The higher area is known for freezing and adverse weather. However, a helicopter tour to base camp and Kala Patthar is doable all the time of the year. The best time for a helicopter flight is described below:
Everest Helicopter flight in Spring Season
In Nepal, Spring falls in March, April, and May. It is an ideal time for a helicopter tour around the EBC area. The weather around the base camp is moderate and favorable. The daytime temperature is warm at around 15°C. Whereas morning and night are chills with -10°C temperatures. The mountain views are quite visible.
However, at the end of the season, the temperatures start to increase, and the weather patterns change. During this season, the view is utterly beautiful; significantly lower hills look amazing with the blooming colorful rhododendron flower.
Everest Helicopter Flight in Summer/Monsoon Season
In Nepal, the monsoon starts from June till early September. In general, it is not considered an excellent time to go for the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour because of unstable weather conditions. During this time, Mt. Everest is usually hidden behind the clouds.
During monsoon season, also in the morning, the visual is clear, so the tour is still possible with extra precaution and safety. During this time, the average temperature starts to range from 17°C to 5°C. It is important to note that there is a high chance of flight cancellation due to the poor weather conditions compared to other main seasons.
Everest Helicopter Flight in Autumn Season
The Autumn season is another best time for the Everest helicopter tour in Nepal. This season is another dry season in Nepal. From September to November, the weather conditions are favorable, neither too cold at higher elevations or nor too hot at a lower height.
The temperature is moderate, and the average daytime temperature ranges from 20°C to -10°C during night time. During this season, there is no chance of rainfall. There will be no cloud, fog, so the high Himalayan views are at their best.
Everest Helicopter Flight in Winter Season
The Winter season starts from December to February, and the weather is cold around the base camp area. But it is still possible for helicopter flight. The hills and mountains are fully covered by snow, which makes the views like winter Disneyland.
The Himalayas’ crystal-clear views are incredible, but the freezing temperature, the chill wind, and the heavy snowfall are some challenges you might have to face during this season. Despite these challenges, the views of the higher snow-capped mountains will take your breath away! So flight cancellations and delays are quite normal due to the bad weather condition so prepare yourself mentally.
Important Note– If your flight is canceled due to bad weather conditions, either you can reschedule your flight or refund your payment. Won’t it be one of the most amazing and lifetime remembering moments after experiencing this trip? So, hurry up and experience it with Himalayan Trekkers.
