DAY TO DAY ITINERARY

DESCRIPTION

True to its name, the Hotel Everest View Heli trek is a combination of incredible adventure across the Himalayas and a luxury trip to the Everest Region. On our trek, we reach world record holder, world highest placed hotel "Hotel Everest View" and stay there for two overnights. From here, the panoramic views of the Himalayas including Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Mt.Everest and other surrounding mountains are ours to admire. On these six days, trip one can explore pretty much everything there is to see, especially when you take a helicopter ride to Kala Patthar and Gokyo Lakes and touch there.

For Travellers with a time limit or those who wish to omit strolling the difficult Himalayan trail to see Mt. Everest up close and to enjoy in Gokyo Lakes, a heli tour from Hotel Everest View could live up to your expectations with rewards of breathtaking portraits of the Mt.Everest, glittering snow peaks, Khumbu glacier and valleys when you take to the skies on a helicopter.

Hotel Everest View Heli Trek will give you an unforgettable memory with your family, friends and loved ones. Come, let's escape from the maddening crowds into the lap of the Himalayas and for six days immerse ourselves in the mystical experience of the Everest Region.

FAQS

Traveling to the mountains poses some inherent risks. As such, the best strategy is to prepare for the worst and then hope for the best.

PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS

The first thing to keep in mind is to see if you have pre-existing conditions that could cause complications at high altitudes. Specifically, suppose you have sickle cell disease, pulmonary hypertension, obesity hypoventilation syndrome, or congenital heart problems. In that case, we highly recommend you consult with a qualified physician before planning a trip to the mountains. Read more.

ALTITUDE-ILLNESS

Given the low amount of oxygen at high altitudes, a sensible ascent is essential to give your body the time to acclimate to the thin air. Failure to do so can lead to your lungs or brain filling up with water leading to death in some cases. The key is not to climb more than 500 meters in one day once you pass the 2,500 meters mark. Read more.

ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

Given the extreme weather in the high mountains, proper gear and regimen must have a safe and comfortable tour. The three most important things that you have to prepare for are cold, snow, and radiation. As such, invest in the right sunglasses, sunscreen, boots, and clothing. Read more.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

We highly recommend everyone get travel insurance covering high altitude evacuation before leaving on a trek to the high mountains. Global Rescue and World Nomads are both highly recommended. For Nepali travelers, please note that insurance that covers helicopter rescue is not available as of now. As such, please be careful while planning your tour and only work with companies that can provide timely evacuation service if needed.

RESCUE AND EMERGENCY

As health facilities are limited in the mountains, a helicopter's evacuation is usually the only option during an emergency. As such, the right insurance provider is essential. If you are not buying insurance for some reason, please ensure that there is someone in Kathmandu who can coordinate payments for a helicopter rescue. Here are some other contacts that might come in handy during an emergency. If you still have questions, please feel free to call / whatsapp us at +977-9841370673 or email Ashish at honeyhunter@honeyguideapps.com

While Nepal's mountains see six seasons, the best period to go to the mountains is from March-May and September-December. However, every season has its quirk, just like people. So keep reading to find your match.

January/February (Winter)

January/February is a good time for trekkers willing to brave the cold and snow for empty trails, fantastic mountain views, and wildlife sightings.

March/April (Spring)

This is a period that offers a little bit of everything: a little bit of mountain view, a little bit of warm weather, a little bit of flowers, a little bit of crowd, and a whole lot of fun.

May/June (Summer)

This is the best time for those into nature. The flowers are quite something this time of the year, and the bird activity is fantastic. The monsoon hasn't started, and as such, mornings are still clear with beautiful mountain views.

July/August (Monsoon)

Only for hardcore trekkers who are willing to put up with the elements for an authentic cultural experience and high altitude flowers. Also, flight disruptions are very likely, and chances of mountain views are close to zero.

September/October (Fall)

This period is everyone's darling, and the trails are as crowded as they can be. The mountain views are something to write home about, and the temperature is just perfect.

November/December (Pre-Winter)

Another popular period among trekkers and the driest two months in the calendar. Indeed it has gotten a bit nippy during the mornings and evenings, but it is still manageable. Count on a lot of sunshine and crystal clear mountain views.

The difficult thing with gear is to make sure you have enough without carrying too much. Whether you are walking or taking the helicopter, the most important thing is to layer up. As such inner thermals, shirts, fleece, a down jacket, and trousers are essential. A warm hat and a buff are beneficial. As for shoes, feel free to make your pick depending on the weather and altitude. Given the amount of UV up there, good sunscreen and sunglasses are also essential. Read more.
