Best time to experience Everest Base Camp Heli Trek by Helicopter.

Everest Base Camp Heli Trek by Helicopter is an epic adventure in the Himalayas. Most of the trek in Nepal happens during the Autumn and Spring season. But we can do any activities all year round. March to May and September to November are considered to have the best time for a visit.

From March to May wildflower blooms with clear views of the mountains. As for September to November weather are more clear. One can enjoy the views of the mountains almost all the time.

October to Early December also offers a good month for clear views. The temperature will be down to minus degrees so need to get more warm clothes. There is also a high chance of snowfall en route to Everest Base Camp Trek and Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek view of Mount Everest by Helicopter. If you are among those who want to trek Everest with less crown then it will be a perfect time.
