- Trip Details
Duration: 6 days
Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter tour from Pokhara is one of the shortest ways to reach the foot of the mighty Annapurna. It is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the world. The Helicopter flies over the snow-capped mountains of the Annapurna region. It is undoubtedly one of the most heavily glaciated regions in Nepal. The two hours of flight over the snow-covered mountains will take you straight to the base of the world’s 10th highest mountain Mt. Annapurna. Although, sightseeing in two wonderful cities in Nepal also makes this trip further exciting.
The Helicopter tour will cover the eight-day round trek to the Annapurna Base Camp. Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter tour is undoubtedly the second most popular helicopter tour in Nepal. A helicopter tour will take you over the mountains of the Annapurna region, small settlements, forests, streaming rivers, and up to the Annapurna Base Camp. Encounter the dramatic flora and fauna of the Annapurna Conservation area along with lush and primitive valleys of the entire Annapurna region. The trip offers a stunning panorama of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain range including the views of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Hiunchuli, Mt. Machhapuchhre, and many other surrounding peaks.
