Benefits of choosing Helicopter Tour over Trekking

Time Efficiency:

Helicopter tours are significantly faster than trekking. While a trek to Everest View Hotel typically takes around 11 days, a helicopter tour can cover the same distance in a matter of hours. This allows you to experience the region's beauty without committing to an extended journey.


Helicopters can reach remote and high-altitude destinations with ease. This means you can explore areas that may be physically challenging or inaccessible on foot due to time constraints or health concerns.

Comfort and Convenience:

Helicopter tours offer a level of comfort and convenience that trekking can't match. You'll enjoy comfortable seating, protection from the elements, and the ability to carry more gear and equipment. There's no need to worry about strenuous physical exertion or sleeping in basic tea houses.

Safety and Altitude Acclimatization:

Helicopter tours help mitigate altitude-related risks. Trekking requires gradual acclimatization to high altitudes to avoid altitude sickness. Helicopter tours allow you to skip the initial steep ascent, reducing the risk of altitude-related health issues.

Spectacular Aerial Views:

Helicopter tours provide unparalleled panoramic views. From the air, you can appreciate the grandeur of the Himalayas and its vast landscapes in a way that trekking cannot offer. It's a photographer's dream come true.


Helicopter tours are highly customizable. You can tailor your itinerary to include specific destinations and activities. Whether you want to combine a helicopter tour with trekking or other adventures, you have the flexibility to design your ideal journey.

Trekking can place stress on the environment due to the need for accommodation, waste disposal, and resource consumption. Helicopter tours can be more environmentally friendly, as they minimize the impact on the fragile ecosystems of the Himalayas.

Best Time to Do Everest View Helicopter Tour

This Tour is most recommended between September and November and between March and May. These months have ideal flying conditions because the weather is typically clear and dry.

Due to the bright skies and sunny weather, the autumn season (September to November) is especially well-liked by travelers and is the best time to enjoy the tour. The weather is usually clear throughout spring (March to May), and the warm temperatures are more conducive to outdoor activities.

It is crucial to remember that the weather in the Himalayas may be unpredictable, and bad weather conditions like low clouds, lots of rain, and strong winds may affect flights. Flights may be postponed or canceled in such circumstances. Due to the possibility of weather-related delays, it is suggested to reserve the tour far in advance and to have a flexible schedule.

Sharing Helicopter vs. Private Helicopter

You can do this Helicopter Tour by either sharing with others or by booking a Helicopter according to your preferences. However, Sharing and booking a private Helicopter for a tour has its own merits and demerits as well. Sharing a helicopter is budget-friendly and makes Everest even easier to reach. It also offers multiple landing means you can observe the view from both air and ground. The demerit of sharing a helicopter; is you might have to wait a little longer for others to join in a group with you.

Touring from a private helicopter might be a little costly but you will receive maximum flexibility on the tour by privately booking the helicopter. You can completely customize the date of the flight, stopping places, and the amount of time you want to spend at different stopping places. If you have your own group for visiting the Everest base camp then it is better to go in a Private Helicopter with family and friends. The helicopter's maximum ride is 5 people on one flight.
