Exploring the Base Camp Area: A Guide to the Best Time for a Helicopter Tour

The base camp area offers different experiences and challenges throughout the year. From March to May, spring boasts moderate weather with temperatures around 15°C during the day and -10°C at night. The blooming rhododendron flowers in the lower hills make the landscape more stunning.
Summer/Monsoon, from June to early September, is not ideal for a helicopter tour due to unstable weather conditions, with the mountain often hidden behind clouds. However, morning tours are still possible with added safety measures.
From September to November, autumn offers the best weather and clear views of the Himalayas with no chance of rainfall. The winter season, from December to February, brings freezing temperatures, wind chill, and snowfall, making it challenging for flights. But the snow-covered hills and mountains offer beautiful snow-capped mountain views.
