    An oxygen cylinder is an essential safety feature during an Everest helicopter tour due to the rapid ascent to high altitudes and the decreased oxygen levels in the air.

    Oxygen Cylinder during Everest Helicopter Tour

    Here is a comprehensive overview of the use of oxygen cylinders during an Everest helicopter tour:


    • Oxygen cylinders provide supplemental oxygen to passengers, helping alleviate the symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and ensuring a comfortable and safe journey. They can be crucial, especially during the stop at Kala Patthar, which is at an altitude of 5,643 meters (18,513 feet).

    • Luxury Holidays Nepal includes oxygen cylinders as a standard feature in our helicopter tours to the Everest region. The onboard oxygen support system typically consists of one or more oxygen cylinders, along with masks and regulators.


    • Oxygen is usually administered if a passenger starts to experience symptoms of AMS or if the pilot deems it necessary due to the altitude. Passengers may also request supplemental oxygen if they feel uneasy or short of breath. When in use, passengers will be provided with an oxygen mask connected to the cylinder's regulator, which controls the flow of oxygen.


    While oxygen support is an essential safety feature, it is crucial to take additional precautions to minimize the risk of AMS during your Everest helicopter tour:

    • Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water before and during the tour.
    • Avoid alcohol and tobacco, as they can exacerbate AMS symptoms.
    • Get a good night's sleep before the tour and try to be well-rested.
    • Eat a light meal before the tour, but avoid heavy or greasy foods.
    • Inform us and the pilot if you have any pre-existing medical conditions, as they may provide additional guidance.

    Emergency Situations

    In case of a medical emergency or severe AMS symptoms, inform your pilot or us immediately. They are trained to handle emergency situations and will take the necessary steps to ensure your safety, which may include administering oxygen, descending to a lower altitude, or arranging for emergency medical assistance.

    Remember, the availability and proper use of an oxygen cylinder during an Everest helicopter tour are crucial for a safe and enjoyable experience. Always prioritize your health and safety, and consult with us and the pilot for additional guidance.
