Everest basecamp helicopter landing tour vs. Annapurna base camp helicopter landing tour

Everest is the tallest mountain in the world. Annapurna is 10th highest mountain in the world. So the choice is yours, whether you land in-front of the tallest mountain or choose to go to 10th tallest.

Everest Basecamp Helicopter Landing Tour starts from Kathmandu or from Lukla. Whereas for Annapurna base camp helicopter tour you will start your tour either from Kathmandu or from Pokhara. I do not recommend you to take a helicopter all the way from Kathmandu, this will be expensive. I recommend flying to ABC for a day tour to Annapurna with a helicopter which starts from Pokhara.






    Among many differences, either ABC or EBC helicopter day tour are Himalayan base camp helicopter day tour in Nepal. But the elevation difference of these two famous base camps in Nepal can be a something one needs to consider, before choosing the best option.

    It takes 30 to 45 minutes to get to Annapurna base camp by helicopter from Pokhara. For EBC helicopter day tour, more than an hour is needed to fly from Kathmandu.

    Everest base camp day tour from Kathmandu by helicopter lands you at approximately 5400 meters or 17712 feet above the sea level. Whereas Annapurna base camp helicopter day tour will take you to 4120 meter or 13514 in feet on foot. Video Gallery

    1.     Luxury aspect

    EBC day tour from Kathmandu can be a top luxury possible in Nepal. As in Everest base camp helicopter tour your breakfast point can be a star hotel and luxury will not be given up even higher in the mountain.

    Whereas in the case of Annapurna base camp helicopter day tour, there are plenty of 5 star luxury hotels while in Pokhara or in Kathmandu. But once you land to Annapurna base camp your breakfast location cannot be more than a tea house restaurant. Your luxury will disappear here. But packed 5 star breakfasts can always be an option.

    2.     Mountain scenery

    Even before getting to Lukla airport you will see an infinite range of mountains including Everest herself, in Everest base camp helicopter day tour from Kathmandu. In case, if you start the tour from Lukla the helicopter day tour to EBC will start already with the mountains. However you will be able to see the mountain from Kathmandu itself, but in a far distance. Once you start getting a closer view of mountains in Everest base camp day tour, the mountain scenery is overwhelming.

    everest heli landing tour1

    In the case of Annapurna base camp, a helicopter tour close to the mountain will only start after getting near Annapurna base camp itself. Although you will fly with the mountain view from Pokhara airport itself, this view is not a close view of the mountain in the ABC helicopter day tour program.

    Everest base camp helicopter landing tour In December vs. June

    December is the peak winter month of Nepal. The subzero temperature at Everest base camp will create a freezing cold environment to stay overnight. But spending a day light at the base camp of tallest mountain of the world will neither be cold nor be cloudy.

    For Everest base camp day tour, month of December are more than okay. In the winter, very few people trek up to the base camp, which will decrease the demand of helicopter for rescue and emergency medical assistance. Saying that, December is better than peak trekking season (April or October), for day tour to Everest base camp by helicopter.

    Whereas, July is the month monsoon in Nepal which means the afternoon will be rainy and the rumbling clouds atop of mountains will bother flying helicopter to the base camp. But still people take day tour to Everest base camp by helicopter in monsoon.

    But monsoon (June to august) is not recommended for Everest basecamp helicopter landing tour. The clouds on the sky will terminate the flight to Everest base camp by chopper and even if you fly towards the base camp of Everest, chance of clear sky is lesser than in the winter.

    Thus, December (winter) is better than June (monsoon).

     In April vs. October

    Both of these months are peak trekking season in Nepal. April in spring and October in autumn are major months throughout the year for traveling to Nepal. Saying that, the cost for helicopter tour to Everest base camp, for a day; will be on the high demand, in these months.

    Among these two famous months for Everest base camp helicopter day tour; October is preferred more than April, in general.

    Both of these months are with clear weather, almost no dots of clouds on the sky, mild temperature; thus traveling to Everest base camp from Kathmandu or Lukla by helicopter will surely be a best option in either of these months.

    Additional information

    If you want to land by the Everest base camp, a private day tour to Everest base camp will fulfill your interest of Everest base camp on foot.

    Private trip vs. Group join of Everest base camp helicopter landing tour

    Cost illustrated is for Everest base camp group join day tour. The capacity of a small helicopter which flies to Everest base camp is either with 3 or 6 people. Sometimes the helicopter will do multiple shifts from Lukla to Everest base camp, back and forth.

    In group join tour, as a member of Ebc day tour group member, you are obliged to follow group decision. Either staying more or less at the helicopter landing point or choosing your breakfast spot will none of your decision.

    Does the helicopter make 2 stops? in Kalapatthar and in EBC?

    Yes Helicopter makes 2 stops. But the stop is at Kalapatthar for video/photo break & another stop is at Everest view hotel for the breakfast. Everest view hotel (breakfast point) has great view of Mt Everest and the entire range.

    How long to we actually get to stay in EBC?

    During the stop at kalapatthar; helicopter stops for about 15 minutes for pictures. It is not recommended to stop long as well.It is because of high altitude sickness prospective.
