Useful Info

Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out Best Time, Season, and Months

Knowing the Best Time and Season for Everest Trekking with Heli Out is essential if you want to complete the Everest Base Camp Heli Fly Out Trek in Nepal successfully. Every season witnesses a large number of visitors to this hiking. Nevertheless, spring (March, April, and May) and autumn (September, October, and November) are the finest seasons for hiking. These times are wonderful for hiking since the days are comfortable, but the nights may get chilly if you don't have a nice down jacket and sleeping bag. The weather will be clear and consistent during this period to provide you with the finest opportunity to see the White Mountain and the lush valley. Additionally, this time of year offers a panoramic picture of the Everest region, which includes Mount Everest and other tall mountains, as well as lush vegetation, flowering rhododendrons, and waterfalls. For the rest of your life, these seasons will shower you with incredible Everest experiences.

Food or Meal Availability on Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out

You will have ten breakfasts, nine lunches, and nine dinners at tea houses while on the Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out. Cereals, rice, and other non-perishable grains are the main components of most recipes, and they make up the majority of meals. Dal, a prepared lentil soup, is the most typical side dish to accompany the basic grain. This makes up the most well-known meal in Nepal, Dal Bhat, which can be found in all tea houses together with steaming rice. The other items on the menu are often variations of the standard side dish Dal Bhat or a soup cooked with various veggies.

  • Porridge, tea, and perhaps an egg are included in the breakfast menu as you get ready for your day of hiking. Prepare for some early beginnings because breakfast is often served at approximately 8 AM.
  • As you travel through the day, you will pause for lunch at one of the tea houses you pass. You may anticipate typical rice and lentil dishes like Dal Bhat as well as the well-known garlic soup, which is said to prevent the onset of altitude sickness, on the lunch menu, which will be quite similar to the supper menu (if not identical).
  • You will join several trekkers as you settle down around a big burner and talk about the events of the day because dinner is often a communal affair in the Himalayas. To wash it all down, there will be the standard meals, some tea, and even beer available.

Accommodation Facility on Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out

For lodging, there are a lot of tea houses available. You may find teahouses that provide adequate hospitality and accommodations for a homestay. In comparison to lower altitudes, higher altitudes will have fewer lodging possibilities. Therefore, you must make the necessary arrangements before the expedition. On the Everest Base Camp Trek with Heli Out, there aren't many fancy places. In Namche, there is a five-star hotel (Everest View Hotel). It offers you opulent amenities including private rooms and restrooms in the western style. The accommodations get more and more rudimentary as you ascend. In the higher elevations, the tea houses offer communal restrooms behind the hotel. You can take a brief shower using the lukewarm water they will provide you in a bucket. In high-altitude areas, the price of a hot shower may wind up being between US$3 and US$5. Sometimes the teahouses don't supply blankets. For convenience, you must carry your sleeping bags.

Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out Difficulty Level

One of the most well-liked treks in the Everest region, the Everest Base Camp Heli Out Trek offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There will be some challenges along the path, but if you mentally and physically prepare for them beforehand, you can overcome them. Starting from the same location as the Everest Base Camp Trek, you will ascend to a height of 5555 meters at Kala Patthar. The primary issue you will have is extreme altitude sickness. However, you may safely prevent this danger if you take care of your health, maintain your walking space, and drink more water when hiking. From Tea House to Tea House, you often journey for 6 to 7 hours each day. The good news is that there are many teahouses along the route where you may stop for meals and a place to stay the night if you are unable to make it to your intended destination for the day. The Heli Out Everest Base Camp Trek is very popular during the monsoon. However, it is unpredictable and wet at that time. This will be the best moment for you if you want to defy the weather and want to experience rain. The coldest months of the year are December's last weeks and January, when it may snow while you are trekking and the temperature will drop to below zero. Your hike will be more difficult than anticipated if snow is on the way.

Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out Travel Insurance

If you are thinking of going on the Everest Base Camp Heli Fly Out Trek, travel insurance is very crucial. You may run across a lot of issues during this journey such as altitude sickness, mishaps, bad weather, and flight cancellations. Green Valley Nepal Trek strongly advises getting travel insurance so you may hike in comfort and tackle the following problems:

  • Individuals often have AMS symptoms due to low oxygen levels and low air pressure; in extreme cases, people even require hospitalization, and because there are no respectable hospitals nearby, the only option is to be evacuated back to Kathmandu.
  • There is always a chance of accidents and injuries because trekkers must traverse a variety of pathways and suspension bridges. Dehydration and exhaustion are fairly typical, but injuries like ankle twists and muscle strains can worsen.
  • You must be familiar with the Lukla Flight Cancellation, which occasionally lasts for days. The topography and the constantly changing weather are the major causes of this. Although the weather in Lukla changes every minute and hour, it is suitable throughout the autumn and spring seasons.

When booking the Everest Base Camp Heli Out Trek, make sure your travel insurance includes helicopter rescue because you will be hiking for many days at a height of more than 4,500 meters. Extreme weather conditions and medical issues may also challenge you with a lot of difficulties. There is always a chance of AMS, and regrettably, if it strikes, you must be airlifted right away to the closest hospital. Due to the fact that you will be walking and sleeping above an altitude of 5000 meters, and since all insurance does not cover up to 6000 meters, you should ensure that your insurance policy does.

Altitude Sickness and Remedies during Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out

Acute mountain sickness (AMS), commonly referred to as altitude sickness, can develop when rising to high altitudes, such as during the Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out to Lukla. To prevent altitude sickness, it is important to acclimatize properly by ascending gradually and allowing your body time to adjust to the change in altitude. It is also important to stay hydrated and avoid alcohol and heavy exertion. If you have any altitude sicknesses symptoms, such as headache, nausea, exhaustion, or trouble sleeping, you must immediately inform your hiking guide so that they can take the necessary steps.

It's crucial to descend to a lower altitude as quickly as you can if you do suffer from altitude sickness symptoms. Ibuprofen or acetaminophen might aid with headache relief in the meantime. It is also important to continue to drink plenty of water, and to rest until symptoms improve. In severe cases, medication such as Diamox can be used to help prevent or treat altitude sickness. It is important to note that altitude sickness is serious and can be fatal if left untreated, so it is important to be aware of the symptoms and to take them seriously. It is always better to be prepared and have comprehensive travel insurance for such unexpected situations.

    My Most Extreme Adventure.

    The company is very professional from start to end, Arjun the owner personally pick us up at the airport, made sure that we are all ok, and reminded us of all the things we might need. We traveled from Kathmandu to Ramechhap airport for 5 hours, and everything there was taken care of by our fabulous guide Yadu. When we reach Lukla we were welcome by another guide Gokarna who is equally energetic as Yadu, which made our hike smooth and fun.

    Everything was smooth until I was hit by AMS after reaching EBC. Yadu our guide took care of me during the night and made sure I was ok until the next morning, unfortunately, I did not get well the next morning so I have to be evacuated by helicopter, Yadu did not leave me until I was boarded to the helicopter and was brought to Lukla hospital. At Lukla, the Green Valley sent another staff Norbin and took care of me while I was waiting for the whole team in Lukla. Norbin made sure I have the things I need and made sure, I get all my meals while I was waiting. This company is highly recommended, they gave us a celebratory dinner and a city tour in Kathmandu after our trek. Everything went smoothly.

    EBC - A Trip We will Never Forget

    Found Green Valley treks months ago when we decided to embark on a 12 day trek to Everest Base Camp. Our point of contact was Arjun, who was always so prompt and detailed in replying my multiple queries about the package/trek/accomm etc. My husband and I booked a private package and we were so well taken care of from start to end.

    Right to the point when we decided to take heli back down from Gorakshep after we reached EBC, instead of trekking back down - weather in those mountainous regions are very unpredictable but Arjun tried his very best to bring us back to Kathmandu in the safest and fastest way as possible.

    I really appreciate how Arjun was always contactable which left us worry-free during the whole trek. The package was worth the money as it’s inclusive of most meals and all accommodation during the trek. Our guide was Biru - we were very thankful for a guide like him, he was so patient when I had to take it slow, helped motivate and told me not to worry whenever I felt I wasn't fast enough and couldn’t do it anymore. He took such amazing care of us - from guiding us what’s best for us to eat and what’s not, to taking the best pics for us (my priority hahaha).

    And of course, to ensuring we were all safe from altitude sickness, our biggest fear. Our porters were also great, always making sure our bags were there at our lodges before us (amaaaazing).Especially Raj, who was always happy and cheerful talking to us even when he's carrying over 20kg. Overall an experience we could never forget in our lives and grateful we had a smooth journey thanks to Green Valley treks.

    You can get these permits from the Nepal Tourism Office located in Kathmandu or from the respective counters in the Everest Region.

  • Compared to the regular trip, the Everest Base Camp Heli Fly Out Trek is more convenient. You do not have to do a round expedition. Only a 65 KM one-way trek will be required of you. The trek the opposite way will be avoided by the heli out. The hike is therefore not very challenging. Still, it could be challenging for those who are just starting out.

  • It is impossible to predict who and when someone may contract the disease on the Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Out to Lukla. You will ascend on this walk to a height of around 5555 meters at Kala Patthar, and illness is always possible at such altitudes. The only way to prevent it is to properly gear yourself for the walk and adhere to safety procedures while on the tour.

  • The staff will provide you with the required care as quickly as they can. If things get a bit out of hand, a swift helicopter rescue will be dispatched. However, the cost of the urgent evacuation is your responsibility. If you have travel insurance, it will pay for such unforeseen and unexpected expenses while you are trekking.

  • Yes, you may change the itinerary, but you will need to let the staff know what you want. Better communication will lead to better outcomes.

  • Yes, To Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour won't be able to take more than 6 people because of weight limit. If you need to book more than 6 people it will be possible. We will manage your trip at same time with different helicopters but you will need to pay some extra cost for a helicopter.

  • There are western restrooms at every teahouse you visit. Rooms with adjoining toilets and hot showers are available in lodges and teahouses at lower elevations. The amenities will be more modest and the bathrooms will be shared at higher elevations. Please take note that in cases of extreme cold, the water in the toilet basin may freeze, prompting you to use an outside squat toilet. It will be best if you always have toilet paper and hand sanitizer with you.

  • To buy anything on the route, you must have local cash. There may be lodges in the Everest region of Lukla and Namche that take credit cards for payment. Carrying enough local currency to purchase necessities en route is strongly advised. You may exchange your money at any of Kathmandu's exchange bureaus or receive local currency at an ATM by using your credit or debit card.

  • Yes, you can eat vegetarian cuisine with no issues as most lodges provide vegetarian dishes. To prevent food poisoning, we constantly advise our clients to consume vegetarian meals. Eating large, meat-based meals at a high altitude is not very healthy.

We assign 1 porter to transport 2 duffel bags for clients. Please be aware that for the flight to Lukla, you are only permitted 15 kg of luggage, including your handbag.
