Annapurna is a well-known peak that falls under the 10th highest mountain in the world. Once you reach the Annapurna Base Camp, you will have time to take photographs and videos of the 360-degree view of the Annapurna range with Machhapuchhare and Himchuli, relish the view of Annapurna South, play with the snow, and also explore the astonishing camp that lies 4,130 m above sea level.

Annapurna region is famous for its beautiful landscapes, nature, culture, and amazing endless views of the snowcapped mountains. With us, you can enjoy the scenic panoramic view of the townlets of the Gurung, Tamang, and Rai tribes overlooking the famous villages like Chhomrong, Ghandruk, and Poon Hill, which are spread all across the region. Join us on this thrilling mountain flight that compresses your typical 8-days trek within a 2 hours flight.

Schedule

We offer two option fly-out locations for this helicopter tour. The first starting point is Pokhara city, from where you can see the mesmerizing aerial views of the lakes, green hills, the snowcapped tall mountains– all while witnessing the gradual transition from the sea level to the high-altitude Himalayas. The second city is Kathmandu, from where the tour will require an additional hour of travel time, solely for flying in and out of Kathmandu to Pokhara. However, while taking this route, you will witness the mind-blowing and up-close mountain views of Manaslu (8,156 m), Ganesh Himal (7,422 m), and the enchanting Langtang (7,234 m) Himalayan ranges. All these diverse landscapes make this helicopter ride fun and once-in-a-lifetime experience.​
