We will follow the trail and climb on past the Machhapuchhre Base Camp (which isn’t really a base camp since climbing the mountain is not permitted) to the Annapurna Base Camp. This area is also called the Annapurna Sanctuary, since it is totally surrounded by mountains and is under the protection of the sanctuary. From here, it is a two-hour trek to the Annapurna Base camp, which offers spectacular views of the mountain peaks and lets you experience the wide vastness of snowy terrain and close views of huge Himals. The landscape at the Annapurna Base camp is spectacular and fascinating. The snowy landscape of the Base Camp is very beautiful and the overall view of whole mountain peaks is pretty wonderful.

Day 08 - Helicopter Ride to Pokhara and back to Kathmandu

This is another most anticipated day of the trek as today; you will be experiencing one of the most amazing helicopter rides from the base camp of Everest back to Pokhara early in the morning. The aerial view of the mountain peaks from the helicopter is something that inspires thrill and excitement. While looking below, you would be able to notice the dramatic change in the landscape as the snowy lands of the high mountains are replaced with the green hills, terrace farmlands and forests. Sometimes, herds of wild goats can be seen from above, running in a group below. The beautiful landscape of the Annapurna region does not disappoint when seen from a bird ‘eye perspective. The panoramic view of the entire terrain presents itself like a beguiling portrait. Finally, we will land at Pokhara. From Pokhara, we will then take an afternoon flight back to Kathmandu.
