How high can a helicopter fly in Nepal?

The helicopters we use can fly up to 25,000ft on average.

Why is a helicopter charter in Nepal the best thing to do?

Trekking and road traveling in Nepal are pretty tricky due to the geographical structure. It is a time taking process to traverse the mountainous region in Nepal. Plus, you need to maintain an endurable physical condition to walk around 6 to 9 hours daily. The trails are steep, rough, and treacherous sometimes. Not everyone is used to trekking and walking under such conditions. Therefore, the helicopter charter is handy to beginners and time savers.

Can I request to hold the helicopter a bit longer than the scheduled time?

Well, the pilot will hold for some time at your interest but not more. The conditions up in the mountain areas can change anytime, and it can worsen. That is why most of the helicopter tours and charters are scheduled for a limited and short time.

How much luggage should I carry while doing a helicopter tour?

You can carry around 5 to 10 kgs of luggage while in a chartered helicopter.

Why do I need to have a flexible time for doing Helicopter Charter in Nepal?

Am I allowed to take my pets on the aircraft?

No, you are not allowed to do that.

What is the age limit for doing a Helicopter ride in Nepal?

Well, that depends on the place you are traveling to. Suppose you are traveling to higher areas like Everest Base Camp. Altitude sickness is a real threat in the higher regions. Therefore, it is better to bring a healthy person for the trip. For your information, anyone from the age of 10 is good enough for helicopter tours unless he/she is healthy.
