Weather and Tour Cancellation:

Weather is the main reason for most of the tour cancellations. We are forced to cancel clients' flights if there is bad weather such as dense fog or low clouds. These kinds of weather conditions make it harder for pilots to see the terrain and safely navigate through the route. Other than that, we will not be able to operate our tour if there are lightning, extremely gusty winds, or heavy rain or snow which could interfere with the navigation, and the pilot may not be able to safely navigate the Helicopter.

If your tour is to be canceled due to inclement weather, we will work with you to reschedule your flight for another day. There will be no additional charge if your flight is canceled due to weather. If you are unable to reschedule your tour for another day, we can issue you a full refund.

At Helicopter Flight Services, your safety is our number one priority. We take safety precautions and would rather be on the side of caution and cancel a flight if the weather is worse rather than put our customers at risk. We want your experience with us to be as safe and enjoyable as possible.

Detailed Itinerary of One Day Everest Base Camp Heli Tour:

After all the necessary formalities are completed; we will hold up until our flight is prepared to depart. Normally, the flight from TIA begins at 6:30 to 7:00 AM and even gets delayed sometimes due to the bad weather. Once all the confirmation is done; our chartered tour to Everest begins.

Departure from Tribhuvan International Airport:
