Best Time for Everest Photography Tour
Everest Photography Tour in Chartered Helicopter can be done in every season of the year but Spring (March, April, May) and Autumn (September, October, November) is considered as the best. Autumn season is the season of festivals in Nepal, so you can capture the best moments in this period. In this season one can observe the best views of the Himalayas in clear sky. Spring also offers the best scenarios of glaciers and rhododendron forests. And the sky is also clear in this season. You can also make a visit in the seasons of winter and monsoon. However, these seasons are least famous due to low temperature and heavy rainfall. It depends on your purpose, which season is favourable for you.
Everest Photography Tour Difficulty
There are not any particular difficulties like a classic inland EBC trekking. However, being at such a high altitude for a long time might cause Altitude Sickness. Altitude Sickness can make your trip quite a miserable experience. So, you must be careful regarding your health while in higher altitudes. Besides that, snowstorm, vertical cracks, crevasses, etc. can put you into little trouble.
Altitude Sickness also is known as mountain sickness is the condition in which our body could not adjust to the environment due to the less barometric pressure. When we move to the high altitude the barometric pressure will be less and our body couldn’t adjust to that air pressure due to which we feel nausea, dizziness, fatigue, vomiting, headache, loss of appetite, shortness of sleep etc. which is called Altitude sickness. In terms of its complexities, altitude sickness is grouped into three categories:
- Acute Mountain Sickness: It is very common at high altitude and can cause vomiting, dizziness, nausea etc. overall, it is the mildest form of altitude sickness.
- High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): It is a very dangerous and life-threatening condition because fluid is built up in the lungs.
- High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): It is the most severe stage of Altitude Sickness because fluid is built up in the brain. It is a life-threatening one. The victim will be unable to walk, breathe and ultimately in Coma.
Altitude Sickness can suffer anyone who attempts high altitude. If you feel any symptoms associated with Altitude Sickness along with headache, you need to change your elevation. It means climb down to the lower elevations. If the symptoms are severe, you need medical attention. We can prevent Altitude Sickness also. For the same, do not climb hurriedly, acclimatize properly, drink plenty of fresh water, do not drink or smoke, eat hygienically.
