    Frequently asked questions about this trip

    Who can go?

    Yes you can do it !  It is suitable for passionate travelers willing to explore inspiring Himalayas, hence positive attitude, excellent health, and strong determination is required. Our trip is even suitable for travelers with disabilities since trekking is completely avoided by Helicopter flights. Besides, it is advisable to trek with a highly reputed trek operator like us, with experienced crew and their significant mental preparation with a personal touch.

    Regarding the difficulty, the only challenging factor is the altitude. Our Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour with 3 landings and a breakfast itinerary provides ample time for acclimatization in each places of Himalayas we land into.

    There is no official age limit for this kind of trip in the Himalayas as long as our participants are healthy and committed to complete the adventure. We are experienced in operating trips even for families with kids as young as 5 years old and elderly trekkers in their early 90s. This is a comfortable trip with a well-acclimatized and carefully crafted itinerary. Thus travelers are expected to have good physical shape, positive attitude and strong determination.

    Best time and weather

    The best time to trek to do this trip is Spring (March to May), and Autumn (September to November). The temperatures are moderate during these seasons and guarantee fantastic views throughout the trip. Beautiful bright blue sky and incredible views of different botanical species and various Himalayan peaks are best experienced during these seasons.

    It is also possible to do this trip during monsoon season (June to August) and winter season (from December to February). But during monsoon, it rains in the lower altitudes and the views are not so pleasant due to foggy and hazy weather. While during the winter season, although the sky is clear, it gets colder. However, traveling during these off-seasons has an advantage that there are fewer crowds due to infrequent trekkers.

    Special cases/rules

    There are reservations that have to be adhered to when entering Nepal. The customs department at the airport conducts a meticulous scrutiny of the items in your luggage. There are some items that cannot be brought into the country, for example carrying drugs in any form is considered a crime and the accused will be immediately prosecuted. Firearms, explosives and sharp or blunt weapons if identified can land you in serious trouble.

    It may come as a shock to many that eating beef is strictly forbidden in Nepal. Hinduism being the dominant religion in Nepal forbids killing and eating cows and oxen. Carrying any edible items in your luggage that contains beef is considered a crime.

    If you are carrying gold it should be less than 5 ounces, for more than the stipulated amount a declaration and authorization is required. Same goes for other precious metals, gems, and valuable items. There are no regulations on the jewelry on your body.

    Nepal has zero tolerance for drug smuggling. Visitors are forbidden to import drugs in any form into Nepal Possession of drugs not only puts you at risk of being apprehended and imprisoned but the entire group you are traveling with might get arrested as well.

    Nepal is a country of tradition and sacred religious beliefs. Any obscenity, whether physical or verbal, is looked upon with revulsion as the culture here differs from Western countries. Wearing inappropriate attire while visiting religious sites will not be tolerated, and clothes that are too revealing or leather clothing inside the religious structures are not allowed. While holding hands is completely normal, please refrain from displaying too much physical affection in public view, if you plan to travel to Nepal as a couple.

      Airplane flights between Lukla and Kathmandu are generally reliable, though bad weather conditions may cause flight delay or even cancellation. In such scenario, Extollo Adventures will attempt to get you on a chartered helicopter to avoid flight delays. In this trip we already avoided this situation since we have helicopter flights to and from Lukla.
