Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is the helicopter trip of Everest Base Camp risky?

    Only after a thorough examination of the weather and wind direction in the Everest region do our flights take off. Only then do we conduct the tour when the specialists have determined that it is safe to fly. Koili tours' top priority is safety. For the purpose of removing all potential consequences, our aircraft undergo routine maintenance and inspections. Some of the top pilots in their field, many of whom have won awards, fly these aircraft.
    It's also vital to remember that because Kala Patthar is at a very high altitude, we won't stay there for more than 10 minutes. Since we would ascend to such heights (5,545m) in a brief period of time, staying for an extended period of time could be unhealthy.

  • How high will the Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour soar?

    The elevation of Kathmandu is 1300 meters. Then Tour beginning in Kathmandu, followed by a flight to Lukla (2830M). once more, a flight to Kalapatther (5545 meters) and Everest Base Camp (5364m). Fly back to the Everest View Hotel in Syangboche (3880 m) after landing at Kalapatthar (5545 m), and then on to Kathmandu.

  • Can I postpone the trip? What will happen if the weather is bad?

    If the trip is canceled due to terrible weather or bad climate, the money is entirely refundable. However, if you have to cancel due to your own issues, a cancellation fee of 40% will be added to the final bill.

  • How long does it take to get from Kathmandu to Kala Pathhar?

    Kala Patthar or Everest Base Camp may be reached from Kathmandu's domestic airport in about an hour and a half, including stops for refueling at Lukla, a shuttle at Pheriche (if necessary), and a stay at the Hotel Everest View in Syanboche. Again, because it is a day excursion, the overall time will be between 4 and 5 hours.

  • I travel by myself. Can I reserve a helicopter trip of Everest Base Camp?

    Yes, you are welcome to reserve your Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with us even if you are traveling alone. We have someone else who can go with you in a group. If you reserve a vacation with us, we'll pair you up with the best group for your dates. Contact us and let us know your availability date to arrange your solo vacations.

  • Does the helicopter have an oxygen cylinder if necessary?

    In the event of an emergency, an oxygen cylinder is readily available in the helicopter. However, an Everest base camp helicopter tour is a simple way to see the Everest and other Himalayas, so you typically don't need to utilize oxygen.

  • Do I require a permit to take the helicopter tour?

    Yes, a Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit is required to take the Nepal Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. The additional USD30 permit fee will be processed by Koili tours.

  • Can I get altitude sickness while on the trip?

    Given the safety measures that will be taken as a major priority of the tour, it is extremely unlikely that you will have AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), also known as altitude sickness.
    If you experience altitude sickness, first-aid care will be provided. You will be transported to a lower altitude area or immediately to Kathmandu if the condition worsens. If more care is required, it will be given after that.
