Great experience, Best Himalayan Views


Great experience. We were lucky as we had to wait only 20 minutes and we were in the air. I thinks the trip should be only 30 mins but we definitely spend more time in the air, or probably I was dreaming. To view the high Himalayas from birds view is just amazing. Do it if there. It is quite cheap compare to other helicopter flights I have been to.

Best Helicopter Ride to Annapurna Base Camp


We have contact in a very last minute on our part, but Nepal Helicopters team were very quick to respond and arranged everything for our requests. Everything was simple and efficient. My one "must do" in Nepal was to be at the base camp of Mount Annapurna. Didn’t have enough time to do the trek and the flight around the Himalayas seemed lame. We found the Annapurna Base Camp by helicopter as an option and we jumped at the opportunity.

It was really a wonderful moment of my life. For anyone who wants a lifetime story to share, Do This!! You won’t regret it.
