The entire Annapurna range can be viewed from above by private helicopter ride for those with limited time. A helicopter ride from Kathmandu to Annapurna takes two hours and it will give you a chance to experience the breathtaking panoramic vistas from a bird’s eye perspective. Once you get to Annapurna Base Camp, you can take 15 to 30 minutes to take in the views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains. For people who wish to experience mountains and altitude but don’t want to walk for 7-8 days, the Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter One-Day Tour is ideal.

Annapurna Helicopter Tour from Pokhara

A helicopter tour to ABC camp from Pokhara is one of the ways to visit ABC. It is comparatively more affordable to do this quick Heli tour from Pokhara than Kathmandu. However, you will have to fly twice or travel a really long way if you are traveling from Kathmandu to Pokhara to ABC. The Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Langtang Himalayan ranges will be visible, providing you with breathtaking views during this flight. Pokhara, one of Nepal’s most picturesque cities, is where the Annapurna Base Camp Trek begins. It is surrounded by lakes, verdant hills, and snow-capped mountains. You will see the gradual change from cityscapes to Himalayan vistas as the journey begins. It is highly advised to take an Annapurna Base Camp Heli Tour from Pokhara because you will have more freedom with your itinerary and save a sizable sum of money. The Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour is far less expensive in Pokhara than it is in Kathmandu. This is so that the price might vary depending on numerous things like distance and time.

Annapurna Helicopter Tour from Kathmandu

For those who would rather not drive or fly to Pokhara, an alternative is the Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour from Kathmandu. Everything else remains unchanged. The tour, however, cannot be reserved on a flight-sharing basis. The Kathmandu to Annapurna Base Camp helicopter excursion is only offered as a customized charter, or private reservation. It is more expensive than flying from Pokhara, but it is still an option.

Besides, you have the option of flying by yourself without any interruptions when you take a chartered helicopter tour to the Annapurna Base Camp. You can also choose to add a personalized guide that will enlighten you all about the places you visit.
