Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour is a wonderful experience up in the sky above the Annapurna region. ABC Heli tour takes you to the lap of Annapurna Massif with ease. Annapurna region is a vast region in western Nepal, known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, which is home to many trekking destinations. Annapurna Base Camp has been my favorite trekking destination for a long time. However, the concept of the Annapurna Base Camp Heli trek has become a new tour package in recent years. It has gained prominence among visitors who seek physical ease but love nature.

Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour Cost is worth all the while at the end of the tour. The birds-eye view of the mountain ranges and the landscape below is impressive. Even through the flight above, you can spot the settlements of the ethnic groups, and along the way, you can spot many trekkers taking their tiresome steps.

Annapurna base camp helicopter landing tour can be taken either from Kathmandu or Pokhara toAnnapurna Base Camp. Annapurna base camp helicopter takes you over the green hills, villages and seasonal settlements, rivers, forests, and finally, the Annapurna Base Camp. Towards the northwestern region, the views of Mt. Annapurna, Mount Nilgiri, Mount Manaslu, and Mount Himchuli are visible.

Best Season for Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Flight

The best season for the Annapurna Base Camp helicopter landing tour is autumn and spring. The spring season lasts from September to November, while the autumn season lasts from March, April, and May. During these months, the weather is very clear, and there are fewer chances of rainfall and snow obstructing the view. Hence the clear skies result in better views not just of the snow-covered mountains but the wonderful waterfalls, rivers, flora, and fauna below. Some months in the winter and summer are also considered for the Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter flights.

Flying on a helicopter to one of the coldest areas and toughest terrain is a different experience than trekking. Although trekking gets you closer to real-life experiences in the rugged terrain, the bird’s eye view of the mountains and the topography is amazing and unparalleled.

While the entire Annapurna Base Camp trek takes from one week to 12 days, the Annapurna Base Camp Heli tour takes only a day to complete. It is best for those who do not have the time and the physical strength to go on those kinds of treks.

Nepal Adventure Team also offers varied experiences for helicopter tours around different trekking and tour destinations in Nepal. Apart from the Annapurna Base Camp Heli tour, you can also opt forthe Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour, and also Muktinath Helicopter Tour which is equally fascinating.

        Unforgettable Adventure!

        Flying over the lush green valleys and traditional villages of the Annapurna region was breathtaking.
