    Best season for Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour

    Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with landing is operated around the year. But for the best views and weather stability, we recommend spring (March to April) and autumn (October to November). Flight in these months offers heart-warming views of the lush green valleys, diverse floral shades, green meadows, and white snow-capped mountains. 

    June to mid-September generally has gloomy, unstable weather and unclear views. The flights get delayed and even canceled most of the time. Winter i.e. December through February offers excellent views of the mountains. Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour in winter is possible if you can bear the cold.
