However, there will be a lack of oxygen, but we have an oxygen tank in the Helicopter which you will adapt instantly if something happens. Otherwise, you are perfect. But overlooking all the difficulty, it is a lifetime experience, and it will change your life forever so, please enjoy the fun and tremendous thrill of the tour, if you are a nature and mountain lover. No worry one of any age can go to the Everest base camp helicopter.
The safety of the helicopter tour of Everest base camp depends upon many factors from the pilot, and helipad to the weather. The helipad at the Lukla is reliable and quite safe. However, the helicopter does not land at the base camp of Mount Everest as the base camp does not have a proper Helipad, due to the movement of glaciers every season of the year. In precise it is not safe and the base camp does not offer views of Mt. Everest as well due to the obstruction by other peaks. So, it will be landed at a grand viewpoint, Kalapatthar where one can enjoy the closest views of Mt. Everest at a mere distance. As we have mentioned the safety of the helicopter depends upon the Pilot as well and each and every pilot of Rising Adventure are experienced and know the trail better and provides great service. So, one can feel safer and rely on them while traveling with them.
We operate the trip only after ensuring everything related to the Helicopter flight to Lukla. However, sometimes, the sudden weather changes, but our experienced pilots manage this situation very consciously as they are well trained, completed lots of rescue missions, and are used to this service as well as know the route very well. Therefore, we assure 100% safety and comfort during the EBC Heli tour with us.
More importantly, it is better to join the Helicopter excursion in the morning than on the second flight. From the point of view of safe also, the weather is more clear in the morning and there is the rare chance of a first flight delay or postponement. In case of cancellation, your amount will be refunded fully.
Note: Spending more than technically allocated time may increase the risk of getting altitude sickness, so you will have a short period of spending time on top of the Kalapatthar. However, our Helicopter is there stand by, therefore, you do not need to be too much conscious regarding any health issue.

The main summit is on the border between the Khumbu region of Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. It lies just south of Mount Everest, to which it is connected by a ridge at an elevation of about 25,000 feet. It is sometimes considered part of the Everest massif. Keeping Everest to the north, you will witness Nuptse to the south during the flight. Lhotse has three stages among three summits, the highest of Lhotse I is at an altitude of 27,940 feet (8,516 meters) above sea level.
During your Helicopter journey toward Kala Patthar, you will witness another gorgeous snow-covered mountain, named Pumori. The striking peak is located just eight kilometers west of Mount Everest. In the Sherpa language, the word Pumori refers to "the Mountain Daughter". Similarly, the mountain was named by George Mallory. In the Sherpa language the "Pumo" means young girl or daughter and "Ri" means mountain in the Sherpa language. Thus, the Pumori means the mountain daughter.
The famous Everest base camp helicopter tour allows you to have an Ariel view of Shishapangma. Shishapangma commonly known as Gosainthān, is the 14th-highest mountain in the world. Shishapangma is at an elevation of 8,027 meters above sea level.

Mount Cho Oyu
Another mountain that you will see from the Everest base camp helicopter excursion is Cho Oyu.

Similarly, the pass separates the Khumbu and Rolwaling Himalayas. Not only that Cho Oyu is considered the easiest 8,000-meter peak to climb. It is a popular objective for professionally guided parties.
Mount Tawache also known as Taboche is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya. The beautiful mountain is connected to Cholatse by a long ridge and lies directly across the Imja River from Ama Dablam and above the villages of Pheriche and Dingboche.
Island Peak also known as Imja Tse, is another peak that you will witness during the Helicopter day tour to EBC. The spectacular mountain is at an altitude of 6189m above sea level. Tucked away up the Chukkung valley this striking peak does indeed look like an island that is dwarfed on both sides by the stupendous Baruntse to the south and Lhotse/Nuptse South Wall to the north. The views of the Island peak from the flight are truly wonderful, and all the more memorable for a spectacular airy ridge climb to the top.
Imja Tse was a training mountain used by Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing in 1953 and the route they revealed is the same one that is used today. In fact, Island Peak is still an admired training peak for clients attempting Mount Everest because a lot of the skills required for crossing crevasses with ladders and using jumars on a fixed line are the same.
During the Helicopter excursion to Everest base camp, you will see another beautiful peak named Mera Peak which is situated in the Mahalangur section of the Sagarmatha zone. Mera Peak has three main summits: Mera North, 6,476 meters, Mera South, 6,065 meters, and Mera Central, 6,461 meters.

The main peak of the Ama Dablam is 6,812 meters meanwhile the lower western peak is 6,170 meters.

Covid-19 Protocols for the EBC Helicopter Excursion 2023/2024
On-arrival Nepal visa for Nepal has been resumed, though it was closed completely during the pandemic. Now, every citizen from the eligible country can get an on-arrival visa at the Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu. However, please check your on-arrival visa status before coming to Nepal as it is your own responsibility to obtain a visa. But, if those nationals are not enlisted under the on-arrival-visa category, they need to get the visa already before arriving in Nepal.
