Trip Overview

The Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek is the perfect combination of trekking and an exciting helicopter ride, giving travelers a birds-eye-view of the Annapurna Range. The Annapurna Conservation Area is considered by many to be some of the most beautiful terrains in the world. With exceptionally diverse flora and fauna, in addition to the impressive mountain landscape, the journey to Annapurna Base Camp is remarkable by foot and by air.

The trek begins with trails passing through thick forests, rhododendron blossoms, and famous villages such as Ghorepani. Additionally, this trail passes through Poon Hill, one of the region’s most famous vantage points. Glimpses of mountain peaks and the tranquil nature make the trek all the more enjoyable. Waterfalls and villages of the Magar and Gurung culture add incredible sights to the already gorgeous trails. Arriving at Annapurna Base Camp, trekkers are treated to the incredible sight of snow-capped mountains and massive boulders making up the sanctuary.

After enjoying breathtaking views of the Annapurna Range, the exciting helicopter ride back to Pokhara is an incredible way to end a trip. The ariel view of the spectacular landscape below and the mountain peaks makes for an utterly mesmerizing sight and experience. This birds-eye-view is fascinating and immensely enjoyable.

We highly recommend the Annapurna Base Camp Heli Trek for a unique experience and to truly enjoy the Annapurna Range from all angles.

We had an unbelievable adventure completing the Mardi Himal Trek in January 2023. Our guide Rajendra (Raj), and porter Rajesh  were professional, fun, energetic, and knowledgeable about not only the trek we were on but about many others in the area.

I'm so happy I went with Nepal Hiking Team. From the moment I arrived at the hotel, I knew I made the right choice. The hotel was in a great area. Bars, restaurants, clubs, shops were all within a 10 minute or less walk from the hotel.
