Lumbini Helicopter Tour is a deluxe tour to visit the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautama (Lord Buddha) in Lumbini. Via this helicopter tour, you will be able to witness the low land of Nepal (just 200 meters above sea level). Upon arrival, you will notice the change in the air and temperature in comparison to your starting point of Kathmandu. Renowned for a peaceful and loving environment, Lumbini has a powerful history of Buddhism because of its strong background in spreading the philosophy of Buddha in Nepal. While you fly above the holy pilgrimage site of Lumbini, you can witness the alluring mountain panoramas and get a gist of the open international Nepal-India border that lays in the district of Rupandehi in the province of Lumbini.
