Trip Overview

Do you not have enough time to trek into the Annapurna Sanctuary? Does the thought of walking for six to eight hours make you exhausted? Despite all of this, do you still want to experience the magic of the Himalayas? The Annapurna Helicopter Tours is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with this incredible range and wilderness north of Pokhara.

The flight above the Annapurna region, with jaw-dropping views of Pokhara, Phewa Lake, and mountain peaks including Annapurna, Macchapucchre, Nilgri, Gangapurna, Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, Manaslu and more.

Highlights of the Annapurna Heli Tours

  • Bird eye’s views of diverse landscapes across Nepal
  • Fly over the Annapurna Range with breath-taking views of snow-capped mountains, including astonishing views of Machhapuchhre, Annapurna I, II, and many more
  • Look down on villages, farmlands, and villages between Pokhara and Annapurna Base Camp
  • Enjoy a beautiful aerial view of Pokhara and Phewa Lake
  • Take in the incredible views from Mardi Himal High Camp, including Machhapuchhre
  • Explore Mardi Himal High Camp and meet trekkers who have made the trip through the hills
  • In the late autumn and winter, enjoy the snow that often covers the high camp
  • Enjoy the view as you fly over Annapurna Base Camp
  • Have incredible memories of one of the most famous mountain ranges in the world

This incredible journey begins at the Pokhara Airport in the early morning, where you will get a birds-eye view of the city of Pokhara along with Phewa lake. This stunning view is only the beginning, as from here, the helicopter turns north towards the hills and mountain peaks. Villages, terraced fields, and lush forests add something truly incredible to the hills.

As you pass by Macchapucchre and other peaks, it feels as though you can reach out and touch them, a truly mesmerizing experience. Glaciers, icefalls, and snow-capped peaks make for a stark contrast with the deep blue sky.

Helicopters are not allowed land at Annapurna Base Camp, so you will land at Mardi Himal High Camp for an exceptional view and the opportunity to take photos. At an elevation of 3,580 meters, there is little risk of altitude sickness, allowing slightly more time to enjoy the incredible views.

This an-hour trip is the perfect way to experience the Annapurna Region for those uninterested in trekking or with little time to explore the incredible area.

If you love the mountains but are wanting to avoid exhausting walks and the long time frame of a trek, a helicopter tour is a perfect way to experience the deep valleys, lush forests, and snow-capped mountains.

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.

We completed the 15-day Manaslu Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team in late November 2022.

The scenery of the Manaslu region is stunning and far more beautiful than we had imagined. The weather was excellent!
