Enquiry, application ant attention

Please contact by mail or telephone.
Could you inform us the day you want to fly, the number of people with names (exactly the same spelling in alphabet on the passport), and car service (if you need car services, your hotel name is informed us).  We explain the concrete flying routes, altitude sickness, etc., and then the estimation of costs is made in formal.

■Altitude sickness
Once you ride off from the helicopter from Kathmandu (in altitude 1,300m) to Lukla (in altitude 2800m), but if the destination is the sky over Kalapattar, the helicopter soars up higher than 5,000-5,500m at once.  Because the helicopter does not have an equipment to adjust air pressure, the subject person of this tour is limited who have experience of being higher than 5,000m with no problem before, and have done a “health examination” for high altitude. (If an altitude sickness would be happened, then the flight operation is stopped to return back.  The activity in high altitude accompanies a risk of life so easy participation is prohibited.)
■Number of people (passengers)

The maximum 5 people can ride on a helicopter.  However, the scenery can be seen differently by the seat in actual.  If a purpose to ride in the helicopter is to observe or to shoot a picture of mountains, one person (on the seat beside a pilot) or 3 people in maximum (all people can sit on the window side seat) are recommendable. 

■Communication with a pilot

Communicate wearing a headphone and using microphone.  Communication is required knowing the flight rout, explanation on the scenery, and the emergency happened such as altitude sickness.  All communication is done in English, so if you want a Japanese speaking interpreter to accompany with you, please contact and request us. 

■Confirm on the flight route and the mountain location beforehand

The person once trekked in the Everest region, can respond to the scenery of “mountain amphitheater” saying “It’s Pumo Ri. That’s Cho Oyu,” but for the person to view at first may need a simulation how the mountains and glacier can be seen,  The time flying over by a helicopter is short and all is in white,  It is not easy to identify which is which.

●The famous celebrated mountains in the Khumbu mountain group

This represents the mountain group of Himalayas include the world highest Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m) and Cho Oyu (8,201m) are higher than 8,000m’s.  In 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, a sherpa succeeded in climbing to the summit (top) of Mt. Everest from the south face in Nepal side at the first time.  In 1956, the Swiss group did of Mt. Lhotse, in 1955, the French group did of Mt. Makalu and in 1954, and the Australian group did of Cho Oyu, respectivelly.  In 60 years, the manners and gears of climbing mountain have drastically changed.  And, a helicopter can approach to the world highest mountain ridge is a dreamy tale.
