Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour from Kathmandu

Mt. Annapurna, the almighty glorious mountain is the 10th highest peak in the world standing at an elevation of 8,091m. Annapurna is considered one of the world's most difficult mountains to summit. Even  ABC Trek, Annapurna Trekking. and Annapurna Circuit Trek are often recognized as strenuous and challenging as it stands at the elevation of 4130m.
ABC encompasses full of magnificent and magical views of panoramic mountains. Annapurna Base Camp is itself a dream destination for many. Although trekking is an authentic way to approach the base camp, many people have chosen the alternative routes because of various reasons, oneself inability to trek or family reasons, or shortage of time. No matter the reason, the Helicopter Tour has become the best alternative for those people to witness the glorious Mt. Annapurna. Annapurna Helicopter Tour allows you to see the Annapurna Massif and Dhaulagiri Massif in a birds-eye view.

I and my girlfriend visited Nepal in November 2019 and did the Annapurna Base Camp Helicopter Tour from Kathmandu. The company offered a good price and information. We charted the private helicopter flight from Kathmandu to Annapurna Base Camp. It was really a memorable helicopter tour in my life. The weather was clear and the views were really nice. An excellent trip, looking forward to another with LHN.
