Trip Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek is a perfect combination of both the trekking journey and a fantastic helicopter ride across the beautiful landscape of the Annapurna region. Starting off the trip with a mesmerizing flight to the lake-side city of Pokhara, you would be trekking across some of the most beautiful terrains found on the planet. Considered one of Nepal’s most naturally attractive and florally rich regions, the Annapurna region is blessed with the coruscating of the Annapurna Himalayas enhanced magnificently with the region’s fantastic mountain landscape. The Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek is also perfect for people who have a relatively shorter time to spend here. The journey harmoniously captures all of the best elements of the region to present an experience that will be in the minds for years to come.

Trek on beautiful rhododendron trails through famous villages like Ghorepani and visit the most popular vantage point of the region- Poon Hill, from the panoramic views of the entire Annapurna mountain massif can be seen. Enjoy the natural charm of distant mountain peaks making an appearance while trekking on the trail and be at the very center of the tranquil environment filled with picturesque sights and heaven-like beauty. Enjoy the tourism hub of Pokhara’s country, from where many mountain peaks can be seen. Walk past waterfalls and swimming holes in Tikhe Dhunga and enjoy the Magar and Gurung villages as you make your way to the Annapurna Base Camp. The vast expanse of snow and boulders with the massive presence of the Annapurna Mountains is quite breathtaking!

Finally, enjoy a unique and thrilling Helicopter Ride back to Pokhara for the final part of the journey. The aerial view of the beautiful landscape below and the mountain peaks makes for an utterly mesmerizing sight and experience! The changing terrain seen from a birds-eye perspective is genuinely fascinating and immensely enjoyable. Join us in this fantastic adventure of Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek, where you will get to experience a trekking journey unlike anything else and an excellent Helicopter ride that presents exquisite sights of the Annapurna landscape!
