Preparing for Helicopter Tours in Nepal

Packing and clothing?

Helicopter Tours need some preparations to gain a great experience. First things first, get a good camera to capture the bird-eye view of Kathmandu Valley, northern mountains, and of course, settlements as you fly over them real high. Of course, we would recommend you to keep a balance between taking pictures and simply enjoying the moment. Helicopter flights are exciting and each ascend/descend fills you up with adrenaline. Carry a bottle of water to stay hydrated and avoid alcoholic beverages to avoid altitude/motion sickness. Carrying some snacks is useful as well.

We recommend wearing a pair of warm trousers, t-shirts/shirt, down-jacket, light jacket, boots and UV Protected sunglasses during the trip. Do use/carry moisturizer and sunscreen to protect your skin from cold and direct sunlight. While wearing caps and mufflers be extra cautious about loose clothing while getting on/off the chopper.

Weight limits for High Altitude Helicopter Tours in Nepal

Helicopters come with weight limit. And in high altitude flights, weight is one of the significant aspects of flying. Hence, avoid carrying heavy backpacks. In fact, wear what you need, and carry a very light bag if you absolutely need it (to keep water, snacks and purse). If you can do without a bag, that’s even better. This protocol is directed by the captain and should be strictly followed.

Safety Precautions and Insurance

Listen to the flight brief and follow all the directions provided by the pilot. Buy a travel insurance that covers the cost of evacuation and medical expenses when traveling to remote areas. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by a helicopter flight. For this trip, keep in mind the following precautions.

  1. Always wait for the captain’s signal for getting on/off the aircraft. Approach the aircraft from front left and front right side only – where the pilot can clearly see you.
  2. Duck while walking towards the aircraft or away from it. Make sure clothing that can fly off easily – are tightened. If you lose any items, don’t pursue.

Helicopter flight tour safety measures

The Flying hours and brief stopover totally depend upon the weather and pilots decision, whether it’s perfect for stops and landing at villages or at Everest base camp, as the Himalayan weather can be unpredictable sometimes during late afternoon times.

We will try our best to cover important highlights stops on this Helicopter trip as much as possible providing you with extra time to witness local culture visit of monasteries, as mentioned above with full enjoyable time in our Helicopter Flights.

The Helicopters we use

For the Helicopter Tours in Nepal in the private sector we are operating : Eurocopter b3, i.e. AS350b3e series of helicopters which are manufactured by Euro copter, France which are very popular all over the world. It is regarded as one of the most versatile helicopters and is suitable for mountain flying and all types of helicopter missions. Comfortable Seating Arrangements – 5 seats excluding Pilot – can fly up to an altitude of 23,000 feet. 

Another helicopter is the powerful Russian made MI-17. This is a big bird, capable of transporting four tons of cargo. MI-17’s can reach altitudes well in excess of 5,000 m and have been known to land at Everest Base Camp. They offer excellent utility and reliability under extreme conditions.
