Mardi Himal Helicopter Tour: Best Time

Mardi Himal has become one of the best trek destinations in Nepal for both international and domestic tourists. Since the Mardi Himal Trek is one of the easier and shorter treks in Nepal than the Everest Base Camp and the Annapurna Base Camp, it can be done at any time of year. But if you're taking a helicopter flight, the scenario will be different. While planning a helicopter tour, there are some months and weather conditions to take into account.

The months of October through December and March through May in Nepal are the best times for Mardi Himal Helicopter Tours. The weather is typically clear and dry during these months, with steady atmospheric conditions that are perfect for helicopter excursions.

The fall season (October to December) offers the best sight and breath-taking views of the Himalayan range because the clouds are typically clear and the weather is dry. It is a convenient time to travel because of the moderate temperature.

Similar to the summer, springtime (March to May) features mild, pleasant weather with clear skies and low humidity. Rhododendrons and other wildflowers are in bloom at this time of year, further enhancing the attractiveness of the surroundings.

However, the weather in high altitudes or mountains in Nepal can be erratic and unpredictable. So it's always a good idea to check the most recent weather forecasts before scheduling your Mardi Himal helicopter tour. Additionally, it's important to keep in mind that weather conditions may have an impact on travel schedules, so it's best to leave yourself some time when planning your journey to account for possible delays or cancellations.
