Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour Highlights
- You will enjoy the blissful Helicopter flight directly from Pokhara to the base of the Annapurna
Whether you don’t have the time or energy for trekking or whether you want to experience the thrill of doing something few have done before, the Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Landing Tour might be just the perfect thing for you!
Flying directly from Pokhara to the Annapurna base camp takes 20 minutes.
The Annapurna Range is surpassed only by Mount Everest in terms of fame. But when it comes to beauty the Annapurna Region has everything the Everest Region has and more!
For those trekking in the region, the landscape is a mixture of villages, terraced fields, forests, and rocky trails. It is also home to the world’s deepest gorge and one of the highest trekking passes. As the altitude rises the landscape gets drier and begins to resemble its neighbour, Tibet.
The Kali Gandaki Valley sees winds howling through it, particularly in the afternoon, making it more difficult to walk. Falling in the rain shadow of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri means this area can trek throughout the monsoon season (June to September).
The Annapurna Base Camp Trek lasts 7 days and reaches an elevation of 4,140m. Not the highest trek in Nepal for sure, but not the easiest either. It is also a very popular route for all the reasons given above and can be busy with trekkers in peak season.
Whether you have completed the trek and want to try something different, or whether you are not planning to trek, a short helicopter ride into Annapurna Base Camp will provide you with a birds-eye view of the mountains and an experience of a lifetime!
Breakfast at Annapurna Base Camp – what a talking point! And, unlike the helicopter landing at Everest Base Camp, where due to the very high altitude the helicopter and guests cannot remain for more than 10 minutes, we are able to spend 30 minutes at base camp, eat our breakfast there and take as many photographs as we can!
Taking around two hours from Pokhara and back, this helicopter trip is now available at a more affordable price to solo travellers as well as groups. How is that? Our b3e helicopter can take up to six people at a time. This can be a group of six or a smaller group with the remainder of the seats being offered to individual travellers.
Details of both group and individual experiences are given below.
Private Helicopter Landing Tour to ABC
The powerful b3c fleet can carry up to six people directly from Pokhara to Annapurna Base Camp. If you are visiting Annapurna Base Camp by helicopter because of the altitude there is a shuttle system for your group from the breakfast point located at a lower altitude to base camp.
On this trip, you can all travel and breakfast together! We require the weight of each person for the weight calculation. And no cheating! It’s for everyone’s safety.
It takes 20 minutes to fly from Pokhara to the base camp. Once there you will have 30 minutes to enjoy the amazing scenery, breath in the crisp fresh air. before climbing back into the helicopter to fly back to Pokhara. And what a flight! This is a view of the mountains that trekkers do not get.
Standing at base camp you will get a 360-degree view of the Annapurna ranges, including Annapurna itself – the 10th highest mountain in the world, Hinchuli, Gangapurna, and Machhapuchhre Himal. The same mountains are on display from the air.
