The spring season lasts from March through May and is characterized by a combination of warm and mild temperatures as well as breathtaking mountain scenery. Autumn also delivers beautiful weather and stunning mountain vistas. In Nepal, autumn lasts from September to November. On the other side, winter is quite cold with snow-covered slopes, yet the views of the mountains are stunning. The winter months in Nepal are December through February. It rains in the lower region but not in the upper one throughout the summer, which lasts from June through August. It is the least favored time of year for hiking. Therefore, you should go on a trip during this time of year if you want to avoid crowds.

They have low-rise beds with foam mattress covers, plastered or wood-paneled walls, and typically only one window. Some teahouses have heaters in each room, while others have a central burner that is lit at night. In contrast to the majority of hotels, some offer hot showers. The majority of locations provide electrical charging, however, it can be on a charge. In our suggested schedule, double rooms are advised because booking a single room during the busiest season might be challenging.

Difficulty Level of Everest Base Camp Trek and Fly Back by Copter

For individuals who have never hiked before, especially in the Himalayas, Helicopter Return Everest Base Camp Trek voyage may be challenging. Because you'll be hiking through treacherous paths with lots of hazards. On this adventure, you must hike for a minimum of 5 to 6 hours each day. There are several ups and downs on high, difficult terrain. For this journey, it's necessary to be in good physical and mental health. Every trekking journey to Nepal poses a significant risk of altitude sickness. Because the routes pass through areas with elevations more than 4000m, trekkers are more likely to get altitude sickness. The trails on this walk lead you through challenging, remote, mountainous, and rough terrain. So you'll have to go past these challenges and develop your abdominal muscles. The trekkers will also encounter a range of challenges, including small cliffs, rocky terrain, meadows, deep valleys, and roads paved with boulders, among others.

  • Keep yourself hydrated when hiking and stay away from alcohol because it dehydrates you. 
  • Maintain a healthy diet throughout the trip. 
  • Diamox, the most effective medicine for altitude sickness, should be brought along on the hike. 
  • Don't hurry when hiking to a high altitude. You ought to walk carefully and slowly. 
  • Before hiking at an elevation of more than 3,000 meters, acclimate appropriately.

    Everest Base Camp Trek Helicopter Return to Kathmandu - 10 Days

    Writing this review of my solo trekking experience with Green Valley Nepal Treks back in November 2023. I did the Everest Base Camp Trek Helicopter Return to Kathmandu that took a duration of 10 days. It was an amazing experience from start to finish. The accommodations were better than I expected and the flexibility of this package was what made me book with Green Valley in the first place. Raj managed the trip smoothly and my guide Parsu was very friendly and helpful throughout the journey. I could not be any happier to recommend Green Valley if you are seeking an amazing trekking experience!

    10/10 Recommended Everest Trek with Heli Return

    With Green Valley Nepal Treks, we completed the Everest base camp trek with a helicopter return in August 2023, and it was one of my favorite trekking experiences ever. I would absolutely recommend taking this excursion, and while I'm writing this review, I'm already making plans for the following one!

FAQs
  • The only option is to remain an additional day if the flight is canceled due to inclement weather. The expense of the lodging will be your responsibility. Charter flights are occasionally made available by helicopter companies even when airlines cancel their flights. You have the option of taking a helicopter. You must pay the additional expense associated with this.

  • In the Everest Region, a mobile network exists. You may simply use your mobile phone for communication if you get a local SIM (NCELL or NTC). The network may frequently become inconsistent because this is a hilly terrain. In most locations, the network is strong enough to support both internet use and video calls. Additionally, for emergencies, our climbing guides have a satellite phone.

  • Your trekking guide will take the sick person's condition into consideration if someone gets unwell while out on the path. Your trek leader will choose whether to carry on with the journey or turn around and descend to a lower height. If the patient's health deteriorates, an air ambulance will transport him or her to Kathmandu for specialized medical care. While an assistant takes care of the sick individual, the remaining member of the group will continue and finish the trip as planned.

  • You may either purchase mineral water in bottles or fill a reusable water bottle with boiling or sanitized water. While on the walk, you may purchase bottled and filtered water at the teahouses or lodges, which is safe to consume. All commodities, including water, cost more as you ascend. We advise our visitors to cleanse the water before consuming by treating it with iodine and other purifying chemicals. To keep hydrated at higher elevations, you must consume 3 to 4 liters of water daily at the very least.

  • 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.

  • The journey can definitely be extended by a few extra days. We may add days to your journey at your request, but there will be an extra charge to cover guides, porters, lodging, and food.

  • 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 advise you to limit the weight of your trek luggage to no more than 15 kilograms. A maximum of 30 kilograms can be carried by each porter. 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. You will be charged extra for overage luggage.

  • Your additional possessions are kept in a safe place at the hotel where you were staying in Kathmandu and are locked up tight. Furthermore, our office is a secure place for you to leave your goods.
